I think that at adolescence, young people should be taught about sex in a systematic way. I mean there should be live demonstrations in the classroom by trained professionals who could explain and demonstrate techniques so that people don’t spend half their life learning by trial and error what hundreds of generations learned before them and didn’t pass on to the next. The development of a healthy attitude, especially on the part of boys, would be a large part of the cirriculum. The result would be a young adult population with a healthier, more responsible attitude toward sex who are prepared to be knowledgeable and sensitive sex partners. They would not, as all previous generations, have their heads stuffed with myths they learn from ill informed siblings and which they had to learn half a lifetime unlearning, if they ever do at all. Let the discussion begin!
The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways; the point, however, is to change it. (Karl Marx, 1845)
