    The availability of fast internet in the home and free porn of every type imaginable has been with us for over a decade now. I wonder if todays teens are starting their sexual lifes better prepared than any previous generation for all sex invloves,- or perhaps it misleads and give unrealistic portrail of sexual acts. Any thought?

    is sorta terrifying to think that porn might be the only sex education this next generation will receive. :eek:

    At least based on several of the younger posters I've encountered here, I'd say that porn probably is their only sexual enlightenment. Abstinence Only curricula have worked out just fabulously :rolleyes:

    Yeah, pretty much a misconception on just about everything compared to the advice I was given. But then again, they didn't just teach you how to have sex in school, did they? I mean, what is meant by "sex ed" and how come the older generations say that the way its taught "these days" is no good?

    How else would I have known that women love to be choked and spat on during sex, other than through porn? :confused:

    I graduated from high school in 1978, and sex ed was taught as Reproductive Health and Responsibility, as I recall. It did not discuss various positions, obviously, but contraception and STIs were most definitely discussed, and quite openly, too.

    Almost everything discussed had already been covered by my mother, who, despite some of her odder issues, was passionate in her belief that adolescents needed to learn all about their bodies and the reproductive process before anything was actually likely to happen. Sex, of any sort, was deemed an entirely appropriate subject for conversation at any time, for both my sister and me.

    Additionally, I bought my (younger) sister a copy of Our Bodies, Ourselves when she was 15, and I bought a copy of the original Joy Of Gay Sex when I was still 17 and just beginning to be sexually active. I never had to unlearn any shame about sex (of any kind); I also had the good fortune of meeting considerate and experienced sexual partners for most of my coming of age. They taught me much more than anyone else.

    Sex ed for me at school was pretty much non exsistent. We were told about condoms and the pill.. But not about sex at all.

    It all came from gossip from friends and porn!

    I turned out alright.. [cough]

    Ah, so the issue of "sex ed" isn't involved so much the education system as with the parents?

    As far as the education system is concerned, we didn't talk about the process of sex but we did learn all about the anatomy of the sex organs and reproductive systems. I recall my teacher dedicated an entire class to answering any questions we had. A couple topics that stood out to me (as in, the ones I actually remember being discussed) were about masturbation and how/when an orgasm "knows" to occur.

    That was just one year, though. It was around this time that I wanted to experiment (idiot). High school was mostly stressing what we already learned when we first learned about sex: the importance of safe sex and learning about STIs and such. There are some programs at my college campus that you can attend which are very open about sex.

    So, I thought the education I received from the schools weren't so bad. I first learned about sex from my dad, though. I'll never forget the "plug and outlet" analogy.

    The impression of sex Ed as a how to vs what sex is, needs to be understood. Porn is DIY. Unfortunately it gives the impression of what may be pleasurable and wanted. I never realized that women loved to be slapped on the ass. Men could fuck for 30-40 min and that was normal. My 5 min was abnormal. There was a sequence in sex: bj, eating pussy, missionary or cow girl, doggy,back to oral , and now anal than cum on the face.
    Porn has taught me everything I know. LOL

    Kids in Britain get sex and relationship education in primary school these days (unless the parents opt out on religious grounds, when it has to happen in middle school). A radio report last year said a study had been done on young kids access to computer porn; practically all kids had access to it, and it had created some strange ideas in the minds of the children interviewed, such as - girls believed they would have to remove all their pubic hair if they wanted to attract boys, girls thought anal sex was inevitable, boys thought pulling out was expected of them, etc.

    On the other hand porn does de-mystify sex, I had no idea what a pussy looked like until my mid-teens when a girl showed me.
