I don't really remember any focus on actual pleasure from sex or anything about consent, sex ed was more focused on sex as an act solely for conception and how to safely have sex without getting pregnant but our main advice was to stay celibate until married although we covered types of contraception I would say sex was generally considered pretty casual in quite a good way but any unhealthy relationships that I see are usually based around one member of the relationship being really controlling and taking ownership of their partner rather than a fair relationship which I think is really bad In terms of my friends I think we all have pretty healthy attitudes towards sex, relationships etc but there's definite issues amongst my wider peer group which some of my friends have been victims of e.g being manipulated into sex, being in emotionally abusive relationships.
There's way too many young people (mostly men) who seem to have little knowledge about the boundaries of consent and clearly demonstrate a weakness in the system I feel like you get quite a lot of those relationships where the boy is very controlling and won't allow the girl to post certain things or talk to other boys although they wouldn't meet these standards themselves or vice versa and you have the really controlling girlfriend. What sex education did cover was fairly doom and gloom with little focus on pleasure or even consent, they said.

I think the general subject often makes people uncomfortable I remember everyone including myself would be super immature about it in year 7 and even in year 10 but it's a pretty serious topic and I think the only way to break down that stigma is more education General information about psychologically abusive relationships and more about saying no if you're put in a position where you don't want to be sexually intimate should be talked about and definitely more focus on the other side of that, like understanding if someone isn't interested and how to take no for an answer The teens described healthy relationships with their parents, with Tim saying his would "fill in the gaps" in his knowledge if he had questions.
He would rather speak to his parents about that stuff than a teacher, he said.
I feel that I didn't take much away from it at all and since it was year 10 I don't think it was very relevant and everyone was laughing since they were too young to be mature about it so it wasn't very effective.
The three panelists bonded over their lack of formal sex education at school.
“Teens used the service to flirt through text, engaging in a form of written flirtation that looked a lot more like letter-writing practices decades before,” says Danah Boyd, author of “It’s Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens.” That written flirtation allowed young women to construct their identities as carefully as their away messages. But online, my friends and I who fashioned ourselves as budding intellectuals who didn’t need to always talk like characters in a Woody Allen movie.
