F4TFriday #62 - Education, Education, Education...

It's probably fair to say that the quality of sex education varies considerably. If I were being cynical, based on my own experience far too many years ago, I would say it ranges from poor all the way down to utterly inadequate. In my day it was pretty much limited to "Man puts penis inside woman's vagina. Man's sperm fertilises woman's egg. That's where babies come from."

Now, depending on where you live, and your age, your experience may be broadly similar to, or completely different from mine. So, this week, what we want to know is:

What elements do you believe a comprehensive sex education programme should cover and why?

How should the responsibility for teaching kids about sex be split between parents and schools?

What age do you believe we should start teaching children about sex?

If there was one thing that could have improved your own experience of sex education, what would it have been?
 
BIG "Thank you!" this week to missy, author of my life as a submissive wife (aka @5ubmissy) for providing the inspiration for this week's question.

PS: If there's a question you'd like us to ask, feel free to contact us via the suggestion box or on twitter.

  1. What elements do you believe a comprehensive sex education programme should cover and why? I know for sure consent is most important. I think sexual anatomy, sexual reproduction, consent, reproductive health, reproductive rights, sexuality and safer sex practices should be included.

    How should the responsibility for teaching kids about sex be split between parents and schools? Parents should administer their children's education at home, as well as sex ed. School doesn't provide all of what a child needs in any case.

    What age do you believe we should start teaching children about sex? I think children should be aware of their bodies, and consent at a young age.

    If there was one thing that could have improved your own experience of sex education, what would it have been? I wish I had sex ed in my youth. It was needed.
