I just watched a thing on c4 where they a group of 30 or so people "debated" with Tony Blair. It was crap. A bit came up about sex education and some said how they were taught this, some were taught that so it got me wondering. What or how were you taught? When I was nine I was sat down at school with the boys in my year and made to watch a video which did the basics. Most of the video contained a nudist family playing Frisbee on a beach. I think we only got that because the girls were being told what they'd be going through soon so they had to teach us something as well. When I was in the last year of high school (16) I was told the basics again. That was the sum total of my sex education. No "talk" from my parents and nothing about STI's, condoms and anything else. Just "stick this thingy in here, thrust about a bit and wait nine months. Oh, and make sure you love her to".
