Back in the Ice Ages 1950 & 60's we kids did a lot more than talk about sex. The parents didn't have a clue. Good times.

Maybe times have changed, but at that age and up until 14 I was just interested in my sports and activities. The sooner kids find out about sex, the sooner it will be acceptable to them, and the sooner they will do it. The sooner they do, the worse off they will be in the long run. It isn't something that should happen early on in life. That's my opinion.

I remember in 5th grade during the recess one of the boys had a cheesecake box that he took outside. It was filled with Playboys, that the boys eagerly perused, until the teacher caught on to what they were doing and confiscated the magazines. While YOU might not have been curious about sex, many, possibly most, boys at that age are.

And once again, if a little girl at ten starts menstruating and has to wear a B- or C-cup bra, how do you intend to keep her ignorant?

That pretty much sums up what it was like in my neighborhood in suburban Detroit in the mid-to-late 1980s. Adult magazines were eagerly prized at that age.

I know!!!

From the opening page on the "Body and Your sexuality."
Starting to date, thinking about romance, and feeling attraction all can be incredibly cool — and a little overwhelming. As you start thinking about love and sex, don’t forget to focus on feeling good about yourself. Take good care of your body. If you have questions, talk to your parent or guardian, doctor, or another trusted adult. And don’t do anything that makes you uncomfortable. You’ll probably remember these exciting days for many years to come, and you want to remember them happily!

As you start dating, think about what you’re looking for. A solid relationship starts with being with someone who supports you, trusts you, and appreciates you for who you really are. You want someone who deserves you!

When it comes to deciding about kissing and more, remember that so much of what you see on TV and hear in song lyrics is not real or healthy. And remember that there are lots of ways to show affection other than having sex.
The site is damned near pornographic!!!

I got lucky. They did exactly as I instructed them to do.

This is a family responsibility and parents have to have these conversations with their kids. It's just as important as anything else you teach them.
YOU taught your kids. Many parents do not. I work in the schools and some of these kids are absolutely clueless, especially the new immigrants. The only sex education that some of them get at home is "Don't do it. It's a sin and you'll go to hell." These are kids that are sexually active or are thinking about it.

Again, you IGNORE that many religious families are prevented from speaking on the topic. And that the children from these families are the biggest contributors to the teen pregnancy rates.

This is a waste of money.
A website is a waste of money? Sorry, but a $3000 a month website isn't a waste of money, if it helps at least 1 child to learn about birth control and what sex is about. Where it can make a child form an informative opinion than get the misinformation from those who are not educated (example aspirin between your knees).

Would you rather a government spend only $26K - $50 K a year posting information about sex to a website or have your government spend hundreds of thousands of dollars for a single mother with 5 kids? PER mother.

I'm tired of paying for crap for people that can and should do for themselves.
News; You're not. You are paying for nothing. The government is paying for this. And don't even go with the excuse that "its my tax money!", because it isn't. Its the government's money, and they can spend it how they want.

Its sickening to see what the progressive left have done to
the moral fiber of our society.
Education and information is EVIL, and will lead to the downfall of civilization!

The states that are deeply religious have the highest teen pregnancy rates. Gee, I wonder why that is?

Hey that's great!

Now that my ten-year-old knows all about gay sex and abortion, I don't have to take on the responsibility of being a parent.

Who leaves their 10/13-year-old unsupervised?
