OMG reading this is giving me flashbacks to my horror sex ed experience! When I was 12 (year 6 in South Oz) we were showing a video of a women giving birth and I cannot remember much else. My year 10 sex education – which being a private religious school – taught abstinence only sex ed – and we just looked at anatomical diagrams which like @sextronaut were not labeled with exception of the vagina, uterus, Fallopian tubes and ovaries… I agree @curiousss !!! Cliteracy should be taught in schools
@sextronaut Huge reason why we need a more diverse educator base for sexual health education! How are you supposed to learn if the person teaching you is uncomfortable? I’m so sorry you didn’t have a good experience!
Who have you found has been the most influential in terms of sexual health education?
@tea absolutely! My parents were fantastic, I had really sex positive information coming from them at all times. Otherwise, I turned to youtubers like Laci Green, Hannah Witton, Dr Lindsey Doe and Shan Boody. 🙂
Where did you find your sexual health influencers?
