    Default Sex survey

    In my small group communication class we are doing our project on sex/stds/teen pregnancy. I'm looking into sex education today and the effect on teens and young adults. It would help to get some feedback to find out what others think. I know that some people here are a bit out of the age group that I'm targeting since we're aiming more towards teens and college students but it would be great to hear feedback from people outside that age group as well! Thanks

    Are your peers are educated enough/correctly about sex?

    Who taught you about sex (teachers, parents, friends, etc.)? No one...I was pretty much left to figure it out for myself.

    Do you think sex education in schools is successful? To a degree, statistics show that teen pregnancy rates have decreased by about 26% in the past several years. They must be doing something right.

    How do you feel about abstinence? If that's the route you take good for you but what people do is their own business.

    What do you think safe sex is? How do you feel about it? Pretty simple, use some form of contraception, pull-out method doesn't count. If it's a "casual encounter" it should be obvious (I hope) to use some kind of barrier to protect against disease.

    Are your peers are educated enough/correctly about sex? I try to surround myself with fairly intelligent people so I'd hope so...again it's their own business.

    Would there be anything that you would change about sex education today? What would it be? Teach MORE about contraception and LESS about just not having sex...it's going to happen anyway.

    How do you think that people can be better informed about sex, stds, and teen pregnancy?
    Parents. Parents need to be more open with their children about human sexuality instead of just going the "don't do it" route. That doesn't stop anyone from doing anything...in fact it might just peak their interest more. I believe in exposing children to certain things while they are young so they don't become sheltered/close-minded individuals in the future.

    Using my daughter as an example: will I buy birth control/condoms for her? You're damn right I will, I'd rather her be safe than be completely clueless when the time comes.

    Aight, i love these stuff...fells like i'm in high-school again


    Age: ancient dinosaur, endangered specie

    Gender: male from head to toes

    Who taught you about sex (teachers, parents, friends, etc.)?: well, first time "i did it" (sound funny, like building a space-ship) at about 14, and trust me when i say i didn't knew shi*t about it, as i was still having the "hole numbers" dillema (guys know what i'm talking about ;))..but she knew way more stuff , and we got along the whole minute...guess porn thought me alot at that age (14-16), later on was trial & error...the only thing i got from my dad was "always hit hard, fast, and to the head" (and he wasn't reffering to women) , and talking it with my mother was too wussy for me

    Do you think sex education in schools is successful ? -it has it's purpose , but the whole presentation package is uninteresting, un-attractive, and drives kids in other places

    How do you feel about abstinence? -not for me, lady, i am a MAN , i love women and i love sex...can't understand why someone would choose self-torture like that, but hey, each with his own

    What do you think safe sex is? How do you feel about it? - safe sex is when no angry husband/big ass ogre boyfriend comes kicking you with a crowbar, angried by the fact that his spouse banged you...can't say there's any sex safer than that one ...how do i feel about it ? well, i usually carry a gun ...as for the disease-risk ....get protection, nobody likes to see a new Ghosbusters movie beeing shot down his pants

    Are your peers are educated enough/correctly about sex? - well, most of them know how it's done, some of them are still learning

    Would there be anything that you would change about sex education today? What would it be ? - teach them that it's not like in the 50's anymore, oral sex is not a bad thing anymore

    How do you think that people can be better informed about sex, stds, and teen pregnancy? -they'll figure it out anyway , teen pregnancy is a bit of a problem there, but hey, they are volunteers not victims ...i really hope God doesn't have a sadistic sense of humour and gives me daughters

    What the hey. I'll give it a go.

    Age: 26.

    Gender: Female...last I checked, anyway.

    Who taught you about sex (teachers, parents, friends, etc.)? My mother told me everything when I was 10. I think she even gave me some pointers. Unfortunately, at 10 I still thought boys had cooties so I was horrified. I didn't really "understand" how everything worked exactly until I realized that boys didn't have cooties did it myself. Then it all made sense.

    Do you think sex education in schools is successful? I grew up in the Bible Belt, so we didn't have a high amount of sex ed. Other than "God will hate you if you do it out of wedlock." I honestly don't remember how successful it was in my high school. All we learned about were STDs, the vague existence of condoms, and abstinence.

    How do you feel about abstinence? Not the road I took, but not my business if someone else wants to do it. Although I think it's important to know whether or not you're sexually compatible with someone before you decide to marry them - intimacy's extremely important. The problem I see with abstinence is the people I know who have gotten married mainly because they wanted to have sex. That's just not a good enough reason in my book, and a lot of them are not happy now.

    What do you think safe sex is? How do you feel about it? Last I heard, safe sex involves taking proper precautions to avoid unwanted pregnancy and/or transmission of STDs. Also, not doing it in a moving vehicle or while operating heavy machinery is probably a good idea too. As for how I feel about safe sex...I'm very conscientious. I don't take any chances there.

    Are your peers are educated enough/correctly about sex? They seem to be. I have one friend in the abstinence boat who knew absolutely nothing about sex because her parents never told her about it. She's been kind of grappling with the whole idea of it, and when I finally let it slip that I had a little bit of knowledge, she was really felt relieved to finally be able to talk about it with someone and ask questions.

    Would there be anything that you would change about sex education today? What would it be? I'm going to agree with Daniel on this onearents -TALK TO YOUR KIDS OPENLY ABOUT IT. While my mother scared the hell out of me when she started telling me about it, I still feel like the reason why I don't have an unhealthy attitude toward it is largely because of her.

    How do you think that people can be better informed about sex, stds, and teen pregnancy? Don't teach abstinence only. This is not the Twilight Zone - people are going to have premarital sex whether you want them to or not. And try to not get preachy when you're trying to educate kids about STDs/teen pregnancy, etc. No teenager/college student/anyone is going to be receptive to that. I'm a fan of the "Don't do it until you're ready" approach.

    AMEN!!! Parents are the ones that need to step up here. I do not want a school or some of my childs peers teaching them about sex. I want it to come from me. I believe in being very honest and open with my child about sex from an early age. If you start out when they are younger they are more receptive to listening to you. I also believe that "the talk" isn't just a one time thing. It is something that you talk about several times over many years.
