    I recall a friend of mine told me how
    Babies were born about fourth grade.
    And I discovered masterbation way before
    That. And they taught us the mechanic
    S of sex in 6th grade. But nothing about
    Homosexuality or other variations of that.
    Does anyone know what they are teaching
    Kids in school these days? What do you remember
    Learning as a kid?

    Please post carefully and thoughtfully:
    Distribution of sexually explicit content involving minors, animals or content of an incestuous nature is forbidden - by minors we mean those under the age of 18, incestuous is any relations performing in sexual acts together, regardless of their age or relation to each other (brother/sister/father/mother and so on)

    I beg your pardon. Just to clarify, my question
    Was not meant to illicit your first sexual experience
    Nor is it to illicit any kind of sexual activity. Just
    Your understanding how you first learned about
    Sex and the social mores you were fought. I hope
    This post clears up my previous post.

    I hope this post is okay, then. :S

    My dad had the "sex talk" when I was 9, but I was under the impression that it's something only married people do. When I was about 11 (I'm not sure how this topic came up), my friend just flat-out asked me how often I masturbated, and I had no idea what that was, but I didn't want to be an idiot and just replied "a few times a day". I remember him being really surprised but didn't say anything more about it.

    About a year later or so, my step-brother and I were watching one of the Scary Movies, where this girl and guy were about to die since they were locked in a freezer or whatever, and she goes on jacking him off (obviously you don't see anything), and my brother commented on it. I thought he said "master bathing" and googled it after the movie, eventually coming across the proper spelling of "masturbating", so I clicked on that to see what it was about.

    And so it all started that night.

    I learned about sex in school later that year, but I don't even know if you want to call it "learning". Sex Education was pathetic, now that I think about it. We learned about the anatomy of the male and female and what happens during puberty (they didn't talk about the penis or breast, just the body hair, voice change, and bone growth in guys, and wider hips, periods, and eventually menstruation in girls). I guess they assumed that we were all experts in sex so they just said "remember always to use a condom", and that was that and we moved onto other topics. Not much more was different when we all "re-learned" it in high school in our Health class, but again, I guess they all assumed we were already experienced. I suppose they wouldn't have been so wrong, for the most part.

    I actually don't remember at all. I do remember seeing the Magic Johnson AIDS video in fifth grade and being really confused because none of quite made the connection with the whole sex thing.

    My first understanding of what sex was about occurred when I was 11 or 12 years old. In those days there were no naked girlie magazines, but there were small 8-page comic books that circulated around, with drawings of men and women together, sucking cock or eating pussy and ending up fucking until they unloaded their jizz. A couple of older chums in my neighborhood had raided their father's stash of such comic books, and then passed them around for the rest of us to see. Just looking at the pictures for a couple minutes guaranteed a fantastic hard-on.

    Certainly not from school (boys only) or my parents.

    A combination of magazines and playground gossip I expect.

    But it was only when I started "dating" that it really began to make sense.

    I suppose TV and films helped as well; although with the restrictions in place at that time, I may have had some strange ideas of what to expect, how to behave and what the likely reactions and outcomes would be.

    Other than the medical books in my house, I learned as a minor so I will leave it at that.

    I grew up in the 50's & 60's and learned on the street, a little at a time. didn't want to appear that I didn't know anything, so didn't ask a lot of questions and that slowed the education process down. then when I was 10 we moved, nearby was a shopping center with a big open field behind it. we would find playboy, and some cheapo porn mags in the brush and weeds from time to time. around 11 or 12 they gave us sex ed in school and that filled in the blanks. about that same time, puberty set in. I remember sitting on the steps with 2 boys my age, and watching the gorgeously stacked, bikini clad neighbor gal wash the car. and we all got hard ons, our shorts were sticking out. their mom came out, realized what we were looking at, told us to go in the backyard, and none of us could get up. LOL

    From my friends, and from Playboy and Penthouse magazines. And from a neighbor lady.

    Parents never gave me the sex talk and I went to private schools all my life so I never got it there. I heard some stuff from friends over the years, but I still really didn't start to learn anything until I got to college. :-X

    A mixture of sources: my parents, sex-ed lessons in school (I think they were called "personal development" or something like that), other kids at school; when I was a young teenager, from my older brother (who was actually really helpful and, looking back, I'd say very sensible about what he told me: he was nearly six years older than me - still is, in fact :smile:). I also managed to get hold of some old Penthouse magazines (I thin they were) and a friend raided his brothers stash of videos... then I started getting hands-on experience and practice... so lots and lots of sources.

    I think it was from ddy's at school, but what I do recall is going home and asking my Mom about it (hetero sex) and thinking how gross it sounded. :rolleyes:

    My, my, how things changed :biggrin1:

    My dad had the talk with me. Kind a straight and foreward - This is how you do it and it makes babies! Nothing about protection, homosexual sex, etc. He did say this was a gift given to us by God and it was only to be done between a married man and woman. Married to each other of course. hehe.
    I had the talk with my son and it was a bit different. He was 14 when I talked to him and I told him the mechanics ( which he already new) we went over types of sex but not the mechanics. I stressed protection at all times - told him he did not want to be a dad at 14. don't make me a grandpa yet! We talked about STD, AIDS etc and how it was contacted etc. and I told him if he had questions to ask me - and not be scared to ask me. I also told him we could research it together on the internet (STD's etc) if he had a question and I did not know the answer. I let him know I was there for him and if he did make a mistake - always come to me and let me know - I would never be mad at him for it - if he was honest with me and would not judge him. He knows I meant it. I just wish my own father had been as open with me as I am with him.
