Sex ed professional sits in abstinence only class

#1  Postby Aca » Apr 17, 2015 8:18 am

I loved it :D

Professor live-tweets her son's abstinence-only sex ed class


Professor Alice Dreger is no newcomer to the study of human sexuality. In 2010, she hosted a TED talk focused on how anatomy often determines fate, and in 2015 she published Galileo's Middle Finger, which covers controversies in academic medicine, specifically those related to sexuality.

When the author and bioethicist's son invited her to sit in on his abstinence-focused sexual education class, she knew she was stumbling into a situation ripe for live-tweeting.

She's a bioethicist, not a sexual educator.

You could be a raving idiot and clearly tell how bad the sex ed class she sat through was though. Jeepers.

She's now telling story of condom box in which EVERY SINGLE CONDOM HAD A HOLE.

Yeah, otherwise it would be hard to put it on one's dick.

that's hilarious until you realize that there now people out there who will open a condom see a hole in it and think there's no point in using it because it's defective.

Topologically speaking, that isn't a hole.

Correct, the dent in the condom is called an invagination.

No shit. :lol:

I thought it was called, "Imagination".

At least that's what the holes in my condoms are called.

You do need to get it out of your wallet occasionally you know.
The problem with fantasies is you can't really insist that everyone else believes in yours, the other problem with fantasies is that most believers of fantasies eventually get around to doing exactly that.

Condoms are scary, sex is scary, everything is scary just be a good boy/girl and sit in the corner quietly not even thinking about anything in case that leads to something scary. Your parents will thank you for it because now they don't have to think about you and the things that scare them.

Yup. One shouldn't pop them in the mouth and let them slowly dissolve.

As for the sex ed class referred to in the OP, not even in 1979 did we have anything so backwards in Sweden.

Only if you want to become pregnant from all the holes in them.

Or become addicted to crack...cause they start with the same letter and I bet people who smoke crack have sex. SCARY!

Seems pretty obvious that an Abstinence class would be dedicated to persuading people to be abstinent.


Know what could be almost as much fun? Mandating classes on how it's bad to be rich (to discourage cheating, drug dealing, thievery, etc, of course).

I'm not sure how it was in my school. I remember very little from sex ed. I don't know if that was due to inattention or if it wasn't presented. The latter probably. If my memory is at all a good guide then they spent more time on how not to rape someone then on condoms.

All I remember from sex ed was sitting there thinking, "I know all of this shit."
