Your parents are doing more harm than good sheltering him that much
@5 exactly. This is why teenagers come up with ideas like you can't get pregnant the first time and that the pull-out method is safe. No wonder teen pregnancy is such a problem in some places. I'm just glad that almost all the schools here have mandatory sex ed, just in case parents suck at informing their kids.
When I got sex Ed (I've lived in Texas since I was 3), we actually were not taught about condoms, but we were taught about abstinence, the penis, the vagina (only the inside), STD's, & not to do anal. That's really about it. Then at the end of the year, we watched the miracle of life video and that was that.
I went to a public school in Texas and they actually gave us an hour presentation specifically on condoms and spent over ten minutes of it demonstrating how to put one on (on a dummy). I understand that Texas has a lot of religious overtones, but I never understood where people get the idea that we don't know how basic medicine works.
