They can read cursive at 6?  I was going to criticize, but they clearly know what they're doing.

Even in Medieval Germany, when you could literally get infants married to each other legally, it was customary to avoid consummating the act until puberty started around 12. The only possible reason for this I can think of is trying to jump the gun on internet porn and get to the kids with good info before they get too deep into the googles.

They're gonna be curious about it by 11, and masturbating to it by 13, if my own childhood is any indication. To believe otherwise is to be willfully ignorant. It's biology.

Try 8 and 10 now a days. : / I have kids at my job who are having full on sexual intercourse by 10.

Yeah. If not farking.

But that's FIVE YEARS away from 6 years old, and nothing makes parents derpier than children learning about sex. NOTHING.

So my policy is evade, evade, evade.

Six Year Old: "Where do babies come from."
Me: "Well, little six year old, babies come from SMOKE BOMB!"

Sex education is about general human sexuality, it's not driver's ed for doing it. Learning how babby gets formed might be of interest before you're actually copulating like wild bunnies. Never mind that girls might start to have some serious questions about this before they turn 12.

I think the average age for the first time is 16 in Germany, and actually has risen since 2005.

My school had comprehensive sex education for lower grades. It also had a much, much lower rate of teen pregnancy than the rest of the nation. I'm sure the two were completely unrelated though.
 
2013-04-25 08:49:56 AM  
That may be too much at once, but I see no problem with gradually easing it into them before it gets pounded into them by the Internet.

Now there's a class that's hard to sign up for. Here's the professor.

It's kind of awful the reluctance so many have to teaching children about their bodies.
 
2013-04-25 08:51:36 AM  
Based on my own experience, I think this material is giving kids unrealistic expectations about sex.  Where are the tears?  Why doesn't the woman run to the bathroom to throw up and call her mother?

Sex education is sinful and just encourages wanton behavior.

That's the parents' job.

School is for academic subjects only. You don't pay teachers enough to be surrogate parents, not even in Europe.

They've been learning from the internet.
I wonder if "first times" are more awkward now in the digital age or earlier.
We we largely ignorant before, but these days kids are probably anal fisting each other before they hit their teens.

Better to wait until the girls are pregnant and the boys have herpes.

Did they show them that scheisse video with Cartman's mom?

Sooo, not safe for work where only adults are, but perfectly safe in the classroom with six year olds.  Something wrong with the world

Wait... the book is called "Where Do You Come From?" and yet it shows Lisa putting a condom on Lars' erect penis?

Are they Doing It Wrong?
Did the rubber break?
Is Lisa in her late 30s and so desperate to have a child that she poked a hole into the condom package?
Or did Lars poke the hole so he can keep Lisa tied down in the house forever?

So many unanswered questions the kids must be asking.

At least they'll know about lube, safe words, and how to avoid fecal incontinence.

But the human body is something icky and filthy and sinful. My child should never be comfortable with that and I will bury him under layers of ignorance and shame until he discovers google and learns all the wrong lessons first.

Sexualize them young, so they become broken and neurotic, because then they'll be left-wing voters when they hit 18.

allegedly, these days teenage boys think sex is gonna be like porn, with women acting super slutty and willing to do anything. at least that's what the meedja would have me think, and of course the meedja are all about informing me, and not all about generating sensationalism where this is none. right? right?

do boys these days think like that? surely their egos are sufficiently fragile that if just one girl said 'er, you ain't Ron Jeremy so you can cut that right out', their little lips would tremble and they'd pack it in. Or would they just silently seethe and then tell everyone in town she was frigid?

/thank god for not being a teenager anymore

Here's "Safe and Sure", a guide to contraception by the German Federal Center for Health Education (apparently there's a need to publish that in English)... Even includes a ruler, accompanied by the line "Only a condom that fits guarantees a safe spritz".

The book mentioned in TFA isn't there, but they do have a children's book, ages 8-12. German. Bad JPEG artifacts.

PDFs, all NSFW, of course.

You have no idea what a left wing vote really means in Germany. They *actually* have socialists.

Ok, the point is that this is being shown to first graders. First graders don't need sex education! They aren't mature enough to handle it. They should have at least waited untill the kids were 10 or older before talking about sex. What is wrong with people nowadays?
 
2013-04-25 09:49:56 AM  
5 year olds can legally stay home alone in Germany. Different cultures are different.

Yes, but as this handy chart shows, using the average for the starting point only account for 1/2 the population.

allpsych.com

I rememeber getting sex ed first in Catholic school in grade 5 - from a nun to boot. It was basically science class. Very, pardon the pun, sterile. No conversation about contraception. That said, at the end you knew exactly how babies were made.

Tests looked like this

Since when is biology not an academic subject?
