Importance of Sex Education and Consent

One cannot help but hope that ‘Sex Education’ should have been considered as equally important as ‘menstrual health’ from a young age for both.

Do you remember that time when your female classmates were escorted to another room and given a slightly awkward yet necessary seminar about ‘Menstruation Cycle’? I always wondered what kind of seminar the boys were given but my hopes died on learning that they were allowed to play in the playground or pass their time in class. I remember asking my teacher why? Shouldn’t they be taught about the menstrual cycle and be educated about female health when they have daughters of their own? Why weren’t they taught the hardships that the female body goes through? Were they taught about consent? Were they taught about good touch and bad touch as other girls were taught about at home/school?

One cannot help but hope that ‘Sex Education’ should have been considered as equally important as ‘menstrual health’ from a young age for both boys and girls. It is necessary to have that knowledge from a young age so that one could have the correct knowledge and the right attitude towards one’s sexual and reproductive health. Sex education should be mandatory and taught accurately as it is something that is going to be a part of teenager life one way or another. Contrary to popular belief, formal sex education doesn’t encourage teenagers to indulge in this activity rather teach them the right way to explore this part of their life. The importance of Consent, i.e. making sure your partner is comfortable and willing, should be taught to the teenagers, as communication and respect between the partners is necessary. It shouldn’t be a choice but an instinct to make sure you are not forcing your partner and that they want it as much as you do. 

Sex education should be available to all, irrespective of gender or orientation. In a century where people in same-sex relationships are not being alienated anymore, it is the duty of the parents as well as teachers to provide them sex education so that they can make correct decisions regarding their sexual health throughout their life. 

Sex Education for youth is also required in order to avoid risky situations such as physical abuse, forced sex etc. that might lead to early or unwanted pregnancies. Knowledge about contraception as well as the importance of their correct use is necessary. 

It is necessary to normalize sex education for youngsters and help them achieve knowledge about something that is going to be a part of their life one day. It’s our fundamental duty as a society to educate the future generation and our responsibility as a parent or an educator to provide youngsters with a safe space where they feel comfortable discussing these topics.

  1. Current sex education in the USA is focused on the biology and fear of pregnancy, disease and death. It terrified my kids when they were in middle school. Instead, Sex Ed should talk about relationships: how to be physically and emotionally safe and kind and how to know when a couple is ready to be sexually active.

    They emphasize the 'right to say no' and the reasons to say 'no' they but never mention the 'right to say yes' and when it might be OK to say yes.

    In the USA about 30% of 16 olds are sexually active. Sex Ed should prepare those teens to allow those relationships to be safe, consensual, and joyful.
