My view is that sex education should be taught over stages and it should be taught by qualified personnel (doctors and nurses preferred), which is important.
Sometimes I think you come from another planet. Or at least from another time.
Sex education in modern countries (i.e., in Europe), is integrated in all curricula. If a topic of sex is brought up during literature class, it is discussed. Likewise if it is brought up during English class. Likewise if student have a private conversation and the teacher wants to raise it to general discussion. Teachers are prepared, and they are as knowledgable as anyone in the matters of sex.
Bringing doctors to the discussion will do no good, because all they can add to the topic is details how your body actually work. And that is physiology, not sed education. Sex is about emotions and behavior, not about body parts.
I won’t advocate that sex is a “beautiful” experience to teenagers and youths at schooling age (which I think is irresponsibility) as that would only encourage them, being naturally curious at that stage. Rather I would emphasise abstinence. I would stress on the consequences of sexual intercourse like babies will be produced and the sexual diseases associated with it, but more importantly how they should grow up to be responsible adults.
You know, sometimes I think you come from another planet or something... Oh, I already mentioned that? Nevermind.
Teenagers have sex to practice for sexual matureness in adulthood. They are ready to have sex whenever they have developed physically and emotionally, which is usually around 14 (give or take a few years). Practicing makes them responsible. If they have no practice, they can't be responsible.
Abstaining from sex is a religious method. It will do no good to the kids. It will only make them frustrated, and it won't work unless the majority of society also practices it (like in religious communities).
Teenagers, and kids in general, need to learn how to have sex, with themselves, and with others. Especially girls need to practice masturbation (the guys just do it anyway), in order to learn how to reach an orgasm. If they wait till they are adults, they may have a hard time reaching a climax, and the guy will not be able to help her reach it.
