Do you know everything you need to know about sex? More importantly – do students in elementary and high schools? We explore the often hilarious, sometimes troubling, and always awkward world of sex ed, with help from contributor Sierra Bellows – who did a fantastic putting together these stories. Sierra also points us to this great article about sex ed from the New York Times.
[Update: Astute listeners may notice that one of the stories has been removed from this updated version of the episode. In the interest of transparency we felt we should pass along what happened. Sierra spoke to a sex educator who requested that her story be removed, presumably for professional reasons. We stand by the story and Sierra’s work on it, but we decided to comply with the request. We don’t want to put anyone’s job at risk. It’s just unfortunate that the interviewee only came to us after the story had been published.]
