In the United States of America, 24 states and the District of Columbia require a sexual education course. 20 states require provided sex education curriculum be “medically or technically accurate” and “age appropriate,” which naturally, varies greatly from state to state and often has an abstinence focus. In 2005, my tenth grade sexual education class taught me that condoms were between 30-70% effective and never worked on HIV/AIDS, and focused entirely on reproductive, hetrosexual, and cisgender sexual interaction. Thankfully, Sexy Sex Ed is here to save us all.
