For the past fifty years I am lively kicking off in this planet, I observe that every time a person heard and read the word SEX – he immediately defines it maliciously as sexual intercourse, foreplay or love-making with a sexual patner. Sex is also about all aspects of sexuality including: body image, sexual orientation, sexual pleasure, values, decision making, communication, dating, relationships and many more.

A Ten-Year Old Girl Got Pregnant

Almost four months ago, I read the news story shared to me from one of my forum groups which was about a girl who was a ten-year old got pregnant and delivered her first baby boy on her 11th year birthday, after she played the “Father and Mother” with her playmate who was also about her age, I was really shocked.

My Advocate Subjects

Sex education for children and teenagers is one of my advocate subjects to tell the world that sex education should be taught to children, teenagers and even to adults – to correct misconceptions about sex.

There are many reasons to consider why sex education should be taught to youngsters most especially.

Why There Should Be Sex Education

  • Children and teenagers need to be educated early about sex to become aware and to become more responsible in dealing with this matter.

  • Teaching with this matter should start at home but parents should refrain from using the word SEX to avoid any malicious meanings that the word may transport to young minds. They can use synonyms for it such as male and female gender, femininity, manhood, manliness, masculinity, sexuality, womanhood, womanliness and many more.

  • Since malice among children and youths start at a young age, teaching about sex education is a necessity – to avoid kids to indulge in premarital sex at early age.
  • Aside from home sex education should be also taught in school.

  • Teenagers lives are crucial because this is the time when they are attracted to the opposite sexes. Sex education is a good move for children and teenagers to let them fully understand the meaning of their being.

Taboo for Many People

I know that this is very taboo for many people but I thought it is important to talk about it to correct the misconceptions about sex esp. for children, teenagers and even adults!

Interesting. "Sex" is also what many mistakenly refer to as "gender." Sex is about birth-given sexual apparatus, but sexual orientation, that's "gender."

Agree James - the reason why I suggest by using some synonyms. Thanks for your time.

Not a thing wrong with talking about it, that's for sure. I do differ with you though on one thing, I do not think sex ed should be taught in the schools, other than the basics of the human anatomy. I feel this is up to the parents but, I know, I know...most parents dont do it. At least for us parents who had 'the talk' and kept doing it with our kids as they grew up, we should be allowed to be able to make this decision if our kids should participate or not. I wish more parents would talk to their kids about this subject and be open about it. Also parents be realistic, it only helps you and your child. Congrats on the star page, it is well deserved. Thank you my friend, for sharing.:)
