There's a point in favor for personal sterilization . . .


Not that all that many girls are queuing up for your 'affections', I'm sure.

Shouldn't sex ed be considered part of a health class? When I think my daughter is mature enough to understand the ways of adults, I will tell her what she needs to know.


When is anyone too young to know the truth?

What you should be worried about is namby-pamby, hokey-kokey, two-bit, flim-flam, shim-sham teaching methods like carrying eggs around.

You might want to look at my post, Jock_Tams_Bairns, and Druid's posts on page one.

Playground knowledge is the wrong way to teach you about most things. The expression blind leading the blind comes to mind. If I had listened to the playground advice (dispensed during the late 1980s/early 1990s in my case) I would believe that the following rubbish is correct:

1. You cannot conceive when you are losing your virginity.
2. Standing up avoids conception.
3. The woman being on top prevents conception.
4. Withdrawal before climax prevents conception.
5. You cannot catch HIV/Aids if you are not gay.

Preferably parents should be involved in teaching their children about such things. However, if they will not or are not prepared to do so then it falls upon the school.

Personally I would prefer the subject was left to the first year of secondary school and then taught properly and frankly. I've never felt totally happy about children at primary school being taught about an adult matter in a setting where the age range is 5 to 11.
