Question what grade did u recive sex ed in at school?

I was just wondering because i didnt get it until grade 11 and it wasnt even a mandatory class. there are lots of kids who are ignorant about sex and pregnancy here.

Hello 'Forever White Girl'!

In response to your question - There wasn't sex ed when I was in school (I graduated 10 yrs. ago)

AND, I was extremely naive about all that stuff. I STILL don't know what chlamydia (sp?) is other than an STD and that I don't have it (lol)

correction to the above......I just realized that you said it wasn't mandatory when you took it. It may have been at my school, but I didn't take it - I don't remember it. I probably wouldn't have taken it anyway - too busy with other non-mandatory things!

When I was in grade 4 or 5 the girls were separated from the boys for a special class on our bodies. We learned about where babies come from, menstuation, etc., etc. it seems pretty funny in hindsight, but someone had to tell us, I guess...

And that's about it. I remember in high school if you took phys ed., you got some more info about sex ed in that class, but I never took gym, so I guess I missed it.

I learned all my stuff on the street. (kidding)

I graduated in 97 and had sex ed in either 9th or 10th grade (I can't remember which now) and it was mandatory. We had something called a 'core' in our school where you went to your main set of classes with the same group of people so we all had to take sex ed for a semester together.

Mine was in 5th grade. They also separated the boys from the girls and had a female teacher teach us and a male teacher talk to the boys! I think that was probably a perfect time to be educated about everything!

The boys were separated from the girls. Girls got educated on periods. I assume boys got educated on erections and wet dreams and then we all came out of the classroom giggling. I believe it was in 7th grade and we never received a grade for it. It was a 1 time deal. I learned a lot of things myself from reading magazines and my parents were always open to questions although I was usually too embarrassed to ask them. Chlamydia was not a known problem when I was a teen there was more discussion about syphyllis and gonnorhea and of course the crabs.

In 6th grade the boys and girls were seperated and we got some info about menstruation and pregnancy, nothing major. Then in 8th grade, we got the video about condoms, ect. And a few things about STD's. Personally, I (very mature for an 8th grader, lol) could have probably taught the class better. The class was mandatory unless your parents insisted that you not take it.

Sex ed classes at my school were horrible, and were more of a scare tactic than information source.

I remember having it in 5th and 6th grade (boys separated from girls) they explained how our bodies are changing and that its normal. I really didnt learn anything, everything I already knew by then
