How to make your students feel comfortable and comfortable is what sex education should be all about.
But we’re not going to teach your kids about masturbation, or how to use a condom, or the benefits of birth control or safe sex, or if you can have a threesome with your partner, or when to take your first-ever sexual-education class.
Instead, you’re going to show them how to read, write and speak about sex.
You’ll teach them about sex and the sexual act from a sexual education perspective, but you won’t teach them the scientific facts about sex, nor the myths and misconceptions surrounding sex, and how to talk to your students about sex in a respectful and informed way.
Your sex education students won’t know what a condom is or how they can get one, and they won’t even know if they’re allowed to use condoms or not.
But they’ll be taught how to have sex safely and without being afraid.
They’ll also learn about safe sex practices, like condom use, safe sex techniques, and the right amount of lubrication and lubricant to use.
And they’ll learn how to do safe sex in their own homes, from using a condom to sharing the bedroom.
They’ll be introduced to the idea that safe sex is about using a safe, non-exploitative method, not about “having sex” at the wrong time.
You’ll also teach them to ask for help when they’re unsure of their sex-education instruction.
And you’ll teach your students that consent means something, that the only way to have healthy, fulfilling sex is to get consent from the person who is consenting.
So what do you need to do to teach safe sex to your sex education children?
The key is to be sensitive, respectful and responsible.
“It’s a very difficult thing to teach to children, because they are so young,” says sex education researcher and sex educator Dr Jennifer Ladd.
It’s incredibly difficult to get a student to understand what consent is, or to know how to give it.
We have to be respectful of their privacy.
But we also have to understand that consent is a very important part of sex education.
“It is not a matter of telling them that sex is okay if it is not consensual.
It’s a matter about consent and respect.”
What can I teach my students about?
There are a lot of things you can teach your children about sex education to help them to understand consent.
For example, if you want your sex-ed students to understand the differences between anal sex and vaginal sex, you can explain to your kids that anal sex is a lot more dangerous and painful than vaginal sex.
And if you’ve ever tried to teach a child about the benefits and risks of condoms, you might also explain that condoms can cause STIs.
“Consent and responsibility for sex is the foundation of any sexual education,” says Dr Ladd, who runs the Sex Education Program at the University of Western Sydney.
The best way to teach consent is to use safe sex as a foundation.
“You can’t teach safe sexual behaviour without also teaching consent.
But it’s not as simple as telling children that condoms are okay or safe.
What is consent?”
I’m really concerned about the impact of sexual education and safe sex on our students.”

What do you teach your sex students about consent?
The BasicsYou can tell your sex ed students to tell you about consent when they are asking you for permission to use certain sexual activities.
If you are the teacher, you should tell your students the basics of consent: that you want them to tell your partner if they want to, and you want to have the opportunity to hear their response.
However, you don’t have to tell them everything they need to know.
“When you are talking about consent, you are not saying ‘do this or don’t do this’,” says Dr Sarah Pemberton.
In the context of sex ed, consent is about giving the other person permission to do something, or not doing something.
If you donít give consent, it doesnít mean that you donīt want them doing it.
It means you want permission to make a choice about whether to do it.
In the US, consent laws vary from state to state, so your students need to ask questions about what consent means in different states.
For some students, the basic questions to ask will be: “How much of this is consent?”
“What is the relationship between me and my partner?”
“Is this about me or about our sex life?”
“Do I want to participate in this sex act?”
“How can I get consent?”
As you introduce the basics, teach them that the best way
