This is true, and like I said before, sex-ed would be fine with me if taught in a responsible way...
My mother was extremely uncomfortable having any such discussions with me, so if it weren't for school sex-ed I would have been in the dark about a lot of stuff.
And like other posters said, kids hear a lot of stuff from their peers. I learned some things from my somewhat shady cousin, and she painted it in the worst possible light. Again, if it werent for school, I would have gone through my teens with a very skewed idea about sex and relationships!
