I've thought about this issue for 30 years, and now it seems to me that not even biology class has any need to talk about human sex.
First of all, the human sense of privacy is bound up with sex. This is glaringly obvious in school bathrooms, where boys are so sensitive about their equipment that they go to inordinate lengths to prevent anybody from "peeking." I also saw this in Latin American men during my years in the region.
Pubertal girls are at their most sensitive about their bodies right at the time schools most want to teach them sex ed. Making the discussion clinical does rob it somewhat of privacy, but at the risk of damaging some girl's sense of sexual activity as private. We don't want the subject robbed of its privacy.
Second, it is not necessary to discuss human sex in discussing sexual reproduction. Talk about dogs or cows and let the kids make the connection themselves. They are as hot at school age as we were and will have no problem connecting the dots.
Third, nobody needs to be told that pregnancy results from unprotected sex. It's the oldest "secret" in the history of man. Pretending that boys and girls need "training" in how to don a condom or give a blow job or choke a chicken or use the asshole as a vagina is the most asinine (and profane) notion I ever heard of. Teens know all about condoms, they know how to put them on, they know how to check them for leaks, etc.
The push for sex ed in schools is all about queers and perverts wanting to get an early start on their victims.
It's way past time confused conservatives quit enabling those deviates, expecially on OUR buck.
