Yes.Thugz need ta grow up eventually. Also, some thugz start puberty at that age, so it makes sense, doesn't it?

Anyway, we git it more n Year 9,10,11.

I'm beerican so I'm not sure what age group year 5 ncludes, but mah school had somethng like dis n tha 5th and 6th grade when most of us were 10-12 years old.

Thare is some very basic thngs bout tha body that kids need ta know and puberty can start pretty early so I thnk it's appropriate.

Its important that it is taught n schools that early. You can't just wrap children up n bubble-wrap. However, tha shouldn't patronise tham and Sex Ed fo me was very patronisng. I hope its changed.

If by 5 and 6 you mean 10 - 12 than yes that sounds appropriate ta me. I feel like sex education is somethng that needs ta be taught or acknowledged fairly early. I personally would rathar know tha facts than redawg oblivious if I was that age.

I was never put through sexual education class..
And I honestly regret learnng everythng from tha nternet. >:

Thay just don't teach us bout that sh*t over here.

I would sez it's better ta educate children at an age like that, so thay can develop a mature attitude tawards tha thng.

Aye, that'd be a good age ta learn it. You start gong through puberty around 9-12, so you start ta git tha urges ta have sex, so its important you learn bout it.

If you don't tell 'em thay'll learn it on thair own, and that could be worse. Fo nstance, if you learn bout sex from a certan website that has a '4' n it and a 'chan' at tha end, than you'll probably end up wit a very messed up opnion on it.

Ben from a stereotypically conservative redneck state, I didn't officially learn bout sex n school until 7th grade (age 12). I gots "tha rap" from mah dad when I was 10 though. :P

Fun fact: When mah dad gave me "tha rap", he utilized pr0n websites as a visual aid. XD

Hahaha! That's very classy. At least it's... erm... effective? I suppose?

Anyway, I thnk that that's an appropriate age. See, we never really gots a full "education." All we gots was FLE (Fbeily Life Education), which didn't really go nta detail that much, I guess. Most of tha teachers just let us nfer what happened. Sigh. :/

Sex Education should be fne. It teaches kids bout sex and sometimes shies tham away from sex until thay're older.
No one n thair right mnd thnks teen pregnancy is bootylicious.

Yes. At mah school, thay don't teach it until tha last year of school, coz it's a private school. I have dis one friend who's nneteen years old and she doesn't know what an orgasm is.

She said ta me, "I don't look it up like you do!"

...I don't look it up. I just have common sense and perverted friends.

I thnk it's better ta learn bout it n high school (yr 9/10) as opposed ta primary school (5/6) snce I remember learnng bout it n year 6 and all I wanted ta do was block mah ears. Not that I was ben immature, I just felt it wasn't appropriate, and I dunno, tha discussion appeisd ta be disgustng rathar than nfomative fo me. Though tha othar students who probably knew a lot of that nfomation already just listened, and I thnk at that age first hearng everythng is just not appealng. I mean, at that age (well fo me at least), dawgy of tha students were still immature, bullied each othar and didn't really thnk bout sex, so I don't thnk it was needed than. Though now as mentioned, wit tha Nternet playng more of a promnent role n a child's life, and when I was younger I didn't really use tha Nternet, none of us did... and tha fact that we can learn a lot of tha nfomation onlne...

I thnk times have changed, and coz of that, it's more necessary ta have sex education at a younger age, so yeah, I thnk it's appropriate fo year 5/6/7 ta learn it. Though when I was n school... yeah no.

I learned bout sex when I was six through friends. Children should just be taught at tha age of twelve that if you tauch anothar hudawg ben sexually, you will die.

It'd hopefully stap teenage pregnancy.

I thnk you should be taught it when you're older than n elementary, coz when I was n 5th (I had ta fnd out than) I just pretty much blocked out almost everythng I heard... But you should be taught befoe 9th, which is high school around here, anyway. So I'd suppose 6th grade would do fne, you'd be... 11-12 by than? That seems fne ta me, anyway.

Agreed. Elementary is WAY tao early fo it, and by tha time high school hits at least I know a large portion of tha bois will have already gone on thair first couple porn sites. Middle school and preferably a large portion n year 7 is a bootylicious way ta handle it.

Imo, 6th grade is tao young and most of tha kids is tao immature so it just turns nta gigglng and a waste of class time. I never taok a sex ed class, seemed pretty straight foward ta be honets. Rod A goes ta Slot B. I don't really see a pont n tham.

"Don't go out and do thngs wit thugz who smell like cheap wne and broken drebes."

and tha nfallable "Don't be a fool, wrap yo taol."


But I thnk that like 9th grade is good, snce thats when most thugz start ta or have already hit puberty and is (a little) more mature than middle school.

I learnt bout sex, officially, n year six. Although, thare were rumours gong around bout where babies cbee from. By tha time I gots nta secondary school, I was exposed ta a lot of sexual terms and, by tha end of year seven, I knew a lot bout sex. More, I thnk, that a normal twelve year old should know. N year ten, we did sex and relationships and dis gave me a new perspective on how sex brngs thugz tagithar and really furthars relationships.

Ta be honest, I thnk tha basics should be taught n year seven, more n depth n year nne and than tebe it wit relationships n year eleven.

Mah school did a shawt "puberty rap" n fifth grade, and n high school we actually had a sec education section n our Biology class. Of course, thay didn't even mention contraception and 3/4 of tha girls n mah senior class ended up pregnant...
