Kids questions about sex.

Good morning everyone,

I'm melting! It's too hot to do anything...if you have a lesson booked for today, you can find me at the public pool...or the beach...anywhere cool...

Kids are naturally curious beings, and they don’t tend to filter what they say. So when it comes to learning about sex, you can bet they’d have questions—and if you have any experience with children, you know those questions are bound to be funny.

This was the case when one teacher was teaching her elementary school kids about sexual education and had apparently given the students a chance to ask any questions that popped in their head. Needless to say, the kids ran with opportunity and didn’t hold back a bit because their questions are downright hysterical (which isn’t to say they aren’t totally legitimate inquiries).

Take a look:

“Are you sure that somebody knows how to get that baby out of there?”

“I’m sure my mother had nothing to do with inter coursing…. Maybe my father?”

“Wouldn’t it be good if a boy had a baby for a change?”

“If you intercoursing longer, is the baby born bigger?”

“I know that intercourse takes 24 hours. My question is, how do you stay awake?”

“When the penise is put into the Virgina, does it slide in quietly or click like a key in a lock?”

The kids’ questions were totally innocent, but they go to show how necessary early sex ed is demystifying sex and clearing up any misinformation that they had already come across. Where the heck did that one kid get the idea that sex takes a full 24 hours?

And as for learning the correct terms for things, the “penise” and “Virginia” are not parts on any human body we know of (by the way, would that be pronounced pin-EES like Denise? or pee-NYES like demise?). We also love how the kids had collectively decided that “intercoursing”—which isn’t a real word, by the way—was the verb of choice for having sex. (It reminds us of how kids have somehow decided that “versing” is now a word.)

Jokes aside, these kids’ questions are totally cute, and it’s good to see that this school isn’t beating around the bush when it comes to proper sex ed. Here’s hoping their questions were answered thoroughly, in an age-appropriate way, and that they left the classroom knowing much more then they did before.

I have to say that sex ed when I was in school was pretty poor. My gym teacher did it and he was so embarrassed to discuss anything in any detail that I left the class more confused than when I went in. How about you? How was sex ed in Japan when you went to school? How about now?

Have a great day!
