I’ve been all over the “abstinence-only sex ed” and “teen sex makes kids go blind” stories lately. Mostly because if you haven’t guessed by now, 1) I believe many teenagers will have sex regardless of what adults say, 2) I do not believe this is the end of the world or cause for great hysteria, and 3) I’d like teenagers to have information that will keep their sexual experiences from, you know, resulting in pregnancy or STDs or trauma. Call me the crazy lady if you must, but that’s my position. Anyhow, a while back I said one of the best ways to stave off early teen sex was to have parents talk to them about it, because who wants to do something you just heard your mom describe? But I forgot another argument in favor of sex ed–if schools teach kids about sex, then you are spared the embarassment of explaining “blow job” to your thirteen-year-old.
In case you weren’t convinced, there’s a highly entertaining video after the jump.
Glad I wasn’t the one who had to explain “Cleveland Steamer” to this kid after shooting wrapped.
