Should Sex be a Forbidden Topic?
Debate Rounds (4)
In our modern society, protective parents are everywhere. But is it justified to avoid giving a child "The Talk" simply because it involves the action of sex? While there are some dark and vulgar sides of the practice of sex, the basics are just facts of life.
If children are taught by their parents the basis of sex, a man produces semen and a woman produces eggs, then they are already exposed to this frankly terrifying world of sex. If we were told that there are sexualities that differ from the male and female normality, we would be used to the idea by the time we're exposed to such relationships.
Why should children be left to learn about sex through explicit sites on the internet? Why should it be the education system's responsibility to teach sex-ed?
I'd much rather a child have sex as a teenager and know how to do it under protection then be uninformed.
Humans delve into what we do not know. Sex is prominent in the modern media, and an uneducated child may decide to figure out the mechanics by practice. However, I am not arguing that teaching kids about sex will stop them from performing it. Sex will happen, regardless if it is taught or ignored.
Would you rather teenagers have uneducated and unprotected sex, or know what they are doing and be responsible about it?
Remember your grandfather's story, they heard about sex when they were about to marry !
And they didn't play sex until marriage !!
But consider these day when a child grow hearing about sex, seeing people play sex , Children easily get the urge to play sex and even unprotected sex because they also want to know about it !
Child A's parents were open in their household about sexual activity and discussed the issues of protection and sex since Child A was eleven. Child A loses their virginity when they are fifteen, but uses protection and faces no consequences. Child A and their partner go on to marry and eventually raise a family.
Child B's parents were protective and censoring. Child B heard no mention of sex until they were eleven, in which they heard it at school. In order to fit in, Child B loses their virginity at twelve, hoping to discover and learn by doing. By the age of fifteen, Child B is having to work to pay child support. Child B does not marry the person with whom they lost their virginity. Due to being raised in a nature of sexual activity since twelve, Child B has a tendency of one-night-stands.
Now these scenarios may be a bit biased, but the logical reasoning is evident.
That means that the world will have disciplined young people free from sex urges !
