Sex education is considered as an unusual topic by many. In India, some of the schools discuss these topics in brief but there are many schools in which the subject is not taught by the teachers and students are advised to read it on their own; teachers and students find it uncomfortable to discuss the topic. Sex education is still considered to be taboo and the importance of the same is not accepted with all its sanctity. Students may at the most be explained about the human sexual organs but nothing more.
However, the authorities have started rising to the occasion and has started emphasizing on the importance of sex education. Most of us must have read about classes being taken on menstruation to allay the misunderstandings related to this natural process. Children need to be made aware of the biological differences between a male and female and the different topics related to the same. The aim is to make them aware so that they don't take the wrong path in their curiosity to know more about sex and sexual differences. Curiosity can at times, at least in this case, be dangerous.
In my opinion, please give full knowledge about sex education to the students so that they don't commit any mistakes. What do you feel?
