Friday Fun Question: What Kind of Sex Ed Did You Receive?
My high school did the anatomical review, told us the names and about the embarrassing awfulness (that’s what they were trying to convey, anyway) of several sexually transmitted infections, and then we watched a Molly Ringwald movie. It was kind of, “Here is a standardized representation of your parts. It doesn’t look much like what you really have. Be afraid, be very afraid.”
But then, I had a health teacher who told the whole class about how she had to talk to some kid in one of her other classes about washing with soap, and went on an on about how the poor kid was stinky. We also got bags of product placements from Doritos and tampon and pad companies in our gym class. Argh.
So, what did you get? Comprehensive sex ed? Anything in addition to the names and infections? Abstinence-only?
