    So does anyone know how chickens have sex if they don't have penises? Or do they?

    from my experience of raising chickens I can confirm they are lacking but they do have 'grooves'

    Raising literally, as in flipping over to check out their cocks?

    Thanks for the info! My science teach wouldn't answer.... I was genuinely curious as well as taking the piss!

    I must leave this post before I become embroiled in an indefinite toil of innuendo with groovy chickens, cocks, choking etc...

    No it was the classic basket of reeds, Moses style.

    There's an alarming number of my school alumni who think cockerels lay eggs.

    If it hadnt been for my mum, and it had been left to the schools i wouldnt have found out much till i was about 15 or 16!

    personly if/when i have children im not going to leave sex education down to the schools, cos lets face its been a fail for years!

    when i was at primary school, they showed us a video, telling us the differance between boy and girls, then puberty(sp) then how babies are made and that was it.

    secondary school at about year 8 they had a talk about periods then handed out boxes of tampax (i was sick that day so missed on the embressmeant at having to carry a box of tampax around! and the talk would have been useless for me anyway as id already started mine by then).

    then in year 10 we got some form of sex ed, but that ws basicaly showing us a video with teenage mothers saying dont ruin your life and have a kid. the teacher then passed around some condoms for us to look at but we wasnt aloud to actually take one out of the foil to look. talked about stds and that was it!

    so in fact if it hadnt been for bilogy classes and if our parents hadnt told us, we would never have known u had to put a cock and a vagto have sex! lol

    really was rubbish and thats why i think its so important that parents actually teach there children about sex, and answear all there questions children ask truthfully but on the how much they need to know due to age bases.

    keep leaving it to the schools there be more underage sex and pregancy and rise in stds then there is now, im imho.

    Dxx

    I don't really remember sex ed in primary school. Second year of high school I think was when we "had the talk". For some of it the boys and girls were in the same room and for some we were seperated. I remember one day my Doctor came in to talk to us about contraception, she was passing packets of the pill around for us to look at and the boys kept pinging the pills at the girls while the Doctor stood at the front of the class with a condom, playing with it like it was an elastic band. I remember her saying if you lot are not going to take this serious I might not as well be here. I mean how could we take it serious when she was playing with a condom like that!

    As for my son, he knows that he can come and talk to me about anything anytime and I will always answer him honestly but in a way that's appropriate for his age.

    I know this might sound a bit boring but I'm a primary school teacher and I specialise in Personal, Social, Health Education. I've spent most of this school year researching effective Sex and Relationship Education. I've just finihed training the other teachers, educating and informing the parents and putting the curricululm together to be taught over the next six weeks. The curriculum starts at nursery and goes all the way through the child's time at school. All lessons are age appropriate and focus on knowing your own body, understanding the changes in your life, being assertive, recognising danger signals in relationships and how to develop good informed decision making skills. All of this is a world away from the couple of very brief lessons I had in my entire school life. Sex education has moved on and is a really important tool to keep childern safe from being abused or manipulated. It at no point says that sex is bad.

    Same partner sex was not mentioned at all. Tampons are bad because they 'de-virginise' you. And being a woman is painful. That was pretty much it. I do remember it being a complete shock to everyone in primary school to finally find out what sex was. Everyone was terrified, so what you're doing Honeytongue sounds awesome! Oh, the clitoris wasn't mentioned either. When I was small I thought I was a hermaphrodite because I had a big clit. I mean that was just ridiculous. In secondary school we had a talk about STDs and STIs and the people asked us to name some. Naturally I put up my hand and named a few, and everyone was looking at me like I was a leprechaun. It was quite funny since I was the innocent nerd

    Sadly that's not the case in all schools.

    This topic was brought up by an article about faith schools possibly beoming exempt from the standard sex ed curriculum, or at least teaching it 'in the ethos of the school'. Which for some school might be be the greatest ethos for teaching tolerant sex ed.

    Reading about others experiences makes me scared about the way sexual education is taught. I dont know if my experiences are due to school in NI or if it was just my school but we didnt have any! (Protestant school btw not catholic as that could make a difference)

    In 5th year as part of our GCSE science course we learned about the reproductive cycle. Thats it!!

    No giving out condoms or even talking about sex or relationships. Just organs and overies. Even then all the guys just laughed about it. Plus I was part of the crowd who had to do PSHE and nothing was told then..we did careers, citzenship and drugs, no relationship talk.

    I was lucky I knew about all of this myself but when you consider that quite a few of the ones in my school got pregant (at least 3 a year) and you can see it needs an overhaul.

    I also think it should be regulated and the same across the whole of the UK and that the schools dont set the agenda but sex advice agencies on behalf of the Government do.

    BTW 5th year for NI is when you are 15/16 so a bit old for that. Also we didnt even learn about periods or puberty. Nothing!!
