    Oh, the ol' condom over the banana trick, I remember that from my sex-ed days, the entire class broke out in hysteria.

    Sex ed is a necessity.
    Higher rates of sexual education leads to lower rates of std's and unwanted pregnancies which leads to fewer abortions/ greater levels of independence/ better health which leads to a generally more agreeable populace.

    Oh no, we had that too. I feel so bad for the people that had to teach that class.

    I have no idea what my class used, actually. I was home sick that day. (No, legitimately, I happened to be sick the two exact days we had sex ed in 5th or 6th grade, and I think they covered condom usage then.) A banana just seems hell of a lot easier to come by than a dildo, if you don't have one already.

    Plus, you can eat the banana after. Nom nom nana. ;)

    Honestly waaay too much furry fiction makes me think the writers didn't pay attention in sex ed. Cervical penetration, owww!

    By that definition, they're also teaching you the art of a BJ. There is just so much suggestive imagery in sex-ed these days...

    I'm pretty sure my husband and boyfriend both would be rather displeased with me if I treated their man-meat like I eat bananas. Most guys do not enjoy being bit down there.

    Well, the keyword there is "most", but that entirely depends on how kinky you are. I can imagine most don't like being bit, but at the same token I bet a lot don't mind a nibble either, you can do that with a banana too.

    I tried sticking a banana up my ass once.
    Not with the peel, like, the food part.
    Didn't do as much for me as I'd hoped it would...

    No we did not have sex ed in my school. Though we were told about genital anatomy and second sex characteristics. I learned that girls menstruate, yuck! Also I finally figured out how babies are produced, I knew it required for a male to have sex with a female, but I wasn't sure exactly what was needed for it to happen.

    But no talk about actual sex, contraception, sexual orientation, stds etc. We were told we were to young to have babies, because our bodies were not fully developed, so we don't have to worry about sex. Sex is only for adults.

    I like bananas soft, squashy texture. I used to leave it inside in case it broke off.

    At least in my province sex ed actually teachers kids about the do's and don'ts alongside what kind of fucked up stuff you can pick up by being unprotected. Personally I think it's very necessary given the age we live in now and with the type of hyper sexualization that's readily seen on TV of both men and women.


    As far as I'm aware my province had the highest rate of teen pregnancy for quite a bit of years but that's finally fallen and it may or may not be in part due to the programs we have available

    The discontinuity regarding "Sex ed" In these united states is alarming, as is the mandated state curriculum.

    Well if it ain't for sex Ed then who else would teach our kids about sex?

    Parents could. It's a real shame that no one feels like they can really talk about the subject openly.

    Around age 12, I learned in school about the mechanics of what sex is and that people can have different sexualities, as well as about contraceptives, pregnancy, and STDs. I had fully functioning bits before that though, by a year or more and had worked out most of that from experimentation or reading encyclopedias and health books. Something which irks me to this day is the lack of teaching about sexual wellness as a part of healthy living in school. Most of what I know about sex as it relates to overall well-being I've had to learn from reading books on my own. I've never really had a chance to apply the knowledge, but I think it's better to be prepared for just about anything. I wish the education system better prepared students for life; taught more about personal responsibility, self-improvement, and skills critical for living without someone else to support you. Most of what I learned in high school and middle school was useless busy work I forgot a long time ago, as it has no bearing on my life now.

    P.S. This thread is making me laugh my banana off.

    But not all parents know how to have sex and it ain't good for their kid to be misinformed

    Precisely why society as a whole should be more open and honest about the subject. If people could just talk about it like anything else, kids could just ask any adult in their life and get answers to their questions. Plus, if they could learn from a broader spectrum of "teachers" they would get a more balanced education with different viewpoints. This would require that they assess their sources and use reason to determine truth where there is disagreement, but as they should be learning to do that as a functional adult, it would not be unreasonable for them to do so.

    Sex education is VERY important to me and it will be for my kids if/when/god-forbid i ever have them. One of my favorite YouTube channels is Sexplanations, a very smart and open channel that discusses everything sex related. -And if there isn't a video on it, they'll happily make one. They don't resort to clickbait thumbnails because the channel is about education and that's the best part about it. Dr.Doe does a great job at explaining concepts both taboo and medical with intelligent language and isn't afraid to make a few tasteful jokes along the way. The channel is a smart watch for teens and adults and Doe is suuuuuuper adorable.

    The worst thing you can do for your children is shelter them from taboos. As soon as something is out in the open, it's not a taboo anymore. Sex is a beautiful part of life and growing young people need to understand what's going on with their bodies, their peers' and how to deal with them. This, frankly, includes pre-marital sex. A staggering number of young people do it before the age of 18 OR marriage, despite what most of them will admit aloud and the vaaaaaaast majority did it wrong and unsafely. Kids are gonna do it whether we tell them not to or not. Statistically your parent's probably knocked boots before they were 18, your grandparents boinked uglies before they were 18 and your great great great great great grandpappy probably had some tail before he met your great great great great grandmammy. Telling the young'ns not to do something is the best/worst way to get them to try it! They's still gon' do it! So edu-ma-cate 'em!!
    i don't know where that accent came from... :V

    The safest sex is educated sex!

    i think proper sex ed is necessary, but that the "abstinence" teachings are the most worthless piece of shit ever. kids are going to have sex none the less, it would be best to teach them how to do it safely. also if they taught about different kinds of sex that would be great too (talking about gay sex here).

    I wouldn't call abstinence completely worthless. While it's assumed most will at some point, there are some who will refuse it for whatever reason, whether it be moral, mental, etc.

    It's good to at least acknowledge that while not having any drive or wanting it at all is indictive of a problem with your brain, it doesn't really impact you all that much as far as I'm aware

    i understand your point but this isn't the case for all students, and in my comment i was really talking about where the only thing the school will teach is abstinence

    I think that sex ed should be something that all schools touch on. And not "abstinence only" sex ed either.

    For young adults to make informed, consensual decisions about sex, they need to know all of the pros and cons that come with it... they don't need "JUST DON'T HAVE SEX, IT'S A SIN, GOD WILL SMITE YOU IF YOU DO!!!" shoved down their throats.

    It's sad that many parents can't talk about sex with their children. They really need to. I both had sex ed in school, and my mom gave me "the talk" before I became sexually active.

    Because, having opted out of sex ed in middle school, I know hardly anything. (I guess it's supposed to be that way for Christians- you learn about it after marriage- but not knowing left me in a rather odd position.)

    I never dated, much less "did it", so my introduction to the act itself was through yiff. And we all know how scientifically accurate and educational yiff is...
