Teacher Teaches Kids About Sex, Can’t Stop Laughing At Their Questions

Sex Ed is always an awkward, exciting and hilarious part of the curriculum for students, as pubescent teens begin to make sense of the weird hormonal urges taking place in their bodies.

While the easy availability of adult content on the internet means that kids are picking up sexy truths a lot earlier than they used to, the blissful naivity of youth hasn’t been completely corrupted just yet, if these example questions from students after a Sex Ed class are anything to go by.

Shared by the friend of a Sex Ed teacher at elementary school, these hilariously innocent questions are pure gold, and remind us of our own clueless and awkward fumblings around the subject of sex. Scroll down below to check them out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

In my extended family all the kids have grown up from birth surrounded by animals - chickens, cats, dogs, horses, cows - and reproduction is witnessed and explained from before they go to school. They've all grown up well adjusted and knowing how it all works, they're not traumatised or over-awed by it, and they can spot sexual ignorance, intolerance, and bigotry a mile away. I'm all for sex education from the time the first question is asked - if they're old enough to ask the question they're old enough to hear the answer. Anyone who thinks otherwise is imposing their own sexual insecurities or mal-adjustments onto young people who deserve truth over lies, fairy-tales, or inhibited euphemisms that only lead to embarrasment and potentially serious problems when the kids are older.

I couldn't agree with you more! Most people wanting to take children out of sex education stating 'I want to teach them myself' are usually just trying to slow up the child's learning with some misguided idea it keeps them innocent. Do they not realise that children share things in playgrounds anyway?

When I was about 3 or so I knew that somehow my dad was involved in making me but I didn't know how. So when I asked my mum said that I was very, very small and crawled from my dad into my mum's tummy. However my parent's bed was [as common in Germany] two halves of a big bed, with a gap of about 1cm in between the beds. So I asked how I got across the gap if I was so tiny. Mum didn't know and said I probably jumped. I became a scientist.

I think it's fantastic to teach young kids about sex. I wish the elementary school my kids go to did. It empowers them, allows them to talk about sex freely which can help prevent sexual abuse.

The Stork and the Gooseberry Bush belief should only last as long as a child believes in Father Christmas
