Sex Education


Cleopatra

Recommended Posts

Was it, after all, a good idea to introduce sex education lessons into the school curriculum when we are now seeing children as young as 14 being arrested on charges of rape? Teach  children about sex and the pleasures of sex and a pound to a pinch of **it they are going to want to indulge as soon as opportunity arises, especially boys. When I was at school ** years ago, we did not have sex education. Granted there was still the odd case of underaged pregnancy, which would be kept hushed up as much as possible, but not nearly on the scale that there are today.

I don't believe that sex education per se leads to earlier sexual experiences.

 

 

A bigger problem is the exposure to sexual imagery - outside the classroom - particularly violent sexual imagery (and song lyrics), where women are there to be used - with little thought to their consent.

I think the main point of sex education is to have safe sex & to guard against unwanted pregnancies by using contraception. I am sure it is a better  to have sex education than just throw the errant single mother into a lunatic asylum like in the good old days.

 

To be honest i am sure one of the best ways to turn boys off the thought of random sex would be to explain the power of the CSA to them.

Not disappointed - just a bit confused as you seem quite adamant about such matters.

 

You didn't mean the prophet then, my apologies for the misunderstanding. Just some random Mohamed, I guess.

 

He's no ruddy random Mohamed! He is my husband and father of my children! Think before you put your fingers into gear! :evil:

My apologies for not being a mind reader Cleo - tell me how I was supposed to deduce that. :roll:

I don't always take notice of what you post - I certainly don't commit it all to memory.  I have no intention  of choosing "The postings of Cleopatra" as my specialist Mastermind subject.

 

Well if you don't always take notice what I post 99% of the time you seem to have something to say relating to it. Amazing fete. :wacko:

E.G. None what so ever.

 

Not having seen the latest sex education curriculum I cannot say if it is appropriate or not. When I were a lad the sex education consisted of the chemistry teacher spending about ten minutes going over the details of how the little wriggly things swam up to the odd looking egg thingy and about thirty seconds of the actual mechanics of the thing. That bit basically consisted of "men do it with women but you are too young so don't."

 

Which now gets to topic back to the original post of sex education and not the usual sniping at whomever.

According to some things I have read by  more enlightened folk  than me Aisha was betrothed to Muhammad at the age of six and the marriage was consummated when she was nine years old.  Now that's starting them young.

 You have to give him some credit for waiting three years.
