    Should schools include gay sex as part of sex education curriculum?

    A few years ago i remember hearing an Ohio senator saying he believes gay sex should be added to the sex education curriculum, as it was unfair that straight sex was taught and how to have it safely, which on the contrary is a good point.
    Considering gays on this planet number to 1 out of every 10 people, i believe it would only be right to include gay sex in the sex education curriculum so that homosexual boys too can know how to have sex safetly. This is vital knowledge and is neccessary to keep that child from being misinformed in the future should he/she decide to have sex. Its very important we teach our kids how to keep it safe and vital for there health in the future as an adult, and its important this does not exclude anybody.

    Whats your ideas?

    When I did sex ed in year 6 it was illegal for the teacher to talk about gay sex.

    I don't think it is necessary at the moment personally.

    I'm sort of confused why one has to distinguish male-female intercourse with male-male or female-female intercourse. If students are taught that they should use a condom on their penis when inserted into another person's orifices, why does it matter whether the orifice is a man's or a woman's?

    The whole point is to teach safety, and not single out any specific group. No sex ed class even tells heterosexual people how to have sex, positions, styles, etc. All it says is to use protection to avoid unwanted pregnancy and disease, or to abstain if you simply are too afraid of suffering any consequences.

    I think most people are too young at that point anyway to really understand the diversity of sexuality. They just need to be taught the basics of the consequences if they are not careful.

    Are you trying to promote gay sex?

    How does what I say promote gay sex? I don't envision sex class teaching how a man inserts his penis into a woman's vagina. I envision a sex class teaching students that a man should always wear a condom.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Yes, you're a brown-noser.

    Sex education in the schools should be limited in scope to the health aspects--i.e., transmission of STDs and the potential for pregnancy, when is it rape and not sex, et cetera. To the greatest extent possible, it should be value neutral. It is not the job of a school to teach morals.

    Sexual acts are not homosexual acts until and unless the sexual actors are both male or both female. Anal sex is not gay sex unless both are men. Oral sex is not gay sex unless both are male or both are female. The health and safety aspects which are the proper academic objectives of sex education derive from specific sexual acts, which can be discussed and taught from a gender-neutral perspective. The cliched sayings about condom use ("put it on before you put it in," "no glove, no love", "always wear a raincoat", "don't be silly, cover that willy") are equally applicable to male-female as well as male-male sexual contact.

    What does need to be a part of sex education is the range of sexual acts that can be dangerous. The great risk to today's youth is that many honestly believe that oral sex and anal sex are not "sex". Sex education should not be limited merely to safe practices for vaginal intercourse.

    Homosexuality itself should not be a part of sex education in the schools, simply because the emotional content of sexual relationships and the sublime psychology of one's sexuality are not academic lessons any school can ever be equipped to teach.
