I personally don’t believe there is any topic that should inherently be left out of sex education. However, as it is pretty impossible to cover every aspect of sex education in the amount of time an average curriculum permits, I do have some topics that I believe should be given a certain level of priority. The first one is consent, and what exactly a healthy understanding of that and relationship with that looks like. I also believe that most, if not all, options for contraceptives/sti preventatives should be discussed in every curriculum. I think at least some sort of introduction to different sexualities and gender should be included, as well as making sure that the discussion of contraceptives/sti preventatives is inclusive of those relationships and genders. Pregnancy should also be discussed, but that already tends to be highly prioritized in sex education. Lastly, while not a specific topic, I strongly believe that sex ed should not be segregated by gender. It can leave trans people feeling very awkward and out of place from the, and I think it’s important to know information about this topic that may not strictly apply to you and your body, as I believe it helps to increase understanding and break down barriers between different sexes. I also agree with points made previously in this module that any questions that come up should be answered honestly, if someone asks there’s almost certainly a reason, and even if there isn’t what’s the harm? The more people know, the safer they can be.
