Are Online Sex Ed Classes Better For Kids??

By kids we mean middle schoolers.

There's nothing more awaked than having a gym teacher or a sports team's coach trying to explain sex to a bunch of giggling tweens.

Researchers from the University of Toronto and Yale have found that internet-based sex education actually improved students' knowledge and attitudes toward sex!

That's great news to all the awkward P.E. teachers out there, dreading the classes reaction when they ask everyone to say "penis" three times without laughing.

The study reports:

"The sensitive nature of this issue can create discomfort and lead students to avoid engaging with the material or participating at all. The anonymity and privacy which are possible with computer-based learning may actually be better suited to teaching adolescents about sexual health."

So the whole online aspect protects kids from feeling awkward, so that's good.

But what about having a face to face back and forth with someone relatively knowledgeable about the subject?

That's something we don't think should be entirely done away with.

No matter how uncomfortable it is.
