I took a Human Sexuality class last Fall in college with a B+ and I am not clueless at all about sex in theory. Although in practice, yes I am completely clueless.

When I was in middle school (back in the start of the 2000's when ipods were bigger than bricks) we had either one of two classes. One being sex-ed for the girls and the other about drug safety. Which when I look back on it, nothing taught in those classes was ever a lesson because my teacher was only like 26 and we just played games. The only thing ever explained to our 10 year old brains was "Wear a condom to not get pregnant"

4 years later when I was taking a health class in high school, it was pretty much the same thing. "If you don't want to get the girl pregnant, use a condom or don't have sex at all." Nothing was explained beyond that. Then after taking my Human Sexuality class, I'm like "Well fuck, sex doesn't sound as great as when I was in high school" Sex is scary.

So my verdict, High School kids don't know shit until they went through an actual Human Sexuality course to make them learn otherwise that "wearing a condom" is never enough, especially when STDs and STIs come into the mix. Condoms don't protect you against that shit

There are fewer cases in people below 20 because being an adult lasts forever once you're no longer young. People begin to have different partners throughout their lives. A lot of the times the partner wouldn't admit to having an infectious disease because either A) they don't know they have it or they didn't want to bring it up.

As for pregnancies... no one really wants to have a child when they themselves are still children. With adults over 25, the unwanted pregnancies lessen, but with ages 16-25, that's the age when it all happens

I didn't have any sex ed at my school and didn't have friends that talked about dating or anything (my entire group was full of nerd losers including myself), so I was completely clueless until I started going to the local RHPS. Then I was a little too knowledgable.

Of course they are, i took Sex Ed at 6th grade and me and my friends didnt even bother to relearn it when we continued on.

Kids these days learn a bunch of bull these days especially College kids cause college is really nothing but a giant day care center.

I kinda wish my middle school did that, oh what fun I would have had playing around with whatever data it had stored.

Yes, I had a classmate ask me a little over a year ago where a baby is born from and I seriously could not believe it. The only sex-ed we ever received was in 6th grade and we spent less than a week on it.

I think a lot of us turn to the internet and get incorrect information which is why STDs and pregnancies are so common nowadays.

Yes, but it's the parent's job to educate them with the correct information.

Not that I've had a lot of sex, not really interested in it or other people in real life.

Unreal. There weren't many kids at my high (or middle) school who hadn't been well versed in sex.

I doubt you can blame the internet for the spreading of incorrect information, though. Ignorance is more to blame.

Yes.

Not the mechanics. They know you put this in there and move these things against those things until the stuff happens.

But they have no idea how to find and qualify sexual partners. Most men wander around desperate much longer than they need to, because they are honestly clueless about when a woman wants to have sex. Meanwhile, most women get into a lot more bad relationships than they should, because they are honestly clueless about how to tell a man is Bad News.

Right around the time they turn 27, both of them tend to be so angry and bitter and nasty about the whole thing, they're honestly not relationship material at all. If a man makes it to 27 without figuring out how to get laid reasonably frequently, he tends to hate women because they won't put out. If a woman makes it to 27 without figuring out how to stop dating jerks, she tends to hate men because they're all jerks.

What we really need to do is teach men how to know when women want it, and women how to know when guys are jerks. If we can do that while they're in high school, we might actually start to exterminate this whole "gender warfare" dynamic where ten years later the men and women hate each other and somehow STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND why they don't have what they want.

Well one problem is I am from the bible belt of the US, so sex is super taboo and the majority of the time they just tell you don't have sex until marriage. But the problem is teenagers are teenagers and may as well let them know the risks and how to prevent anything bad.

I still have no idea how sex works.

And I have a degree from a university.

Big taboo here. No one talks about it.

All I know is don't have sex or you will get pregnant. So yea.

I wouldn't say clueless... I think idiot would be more appropriate.
