Originally, Ellis assumed the poster to be a student prank, until he called the school and discovered it was part of the curriculum.

“Why would you put it in front of 13 year-old students?” he asked.

The poster, entitled, “How Do People Express Their Sexual Feelings?” lists sex acts such as: Oral Sex, Sexual Fantasy, Caressing, Anal Sex, Dancing, Hugging, Touching Each Other’s Genitals, Kissing, Grinding, and Masturbation.

Ellis said after being told by the school principal the poster was “teaching material,” he is now concerned about what his daughter is being taught in school.

I guess you could call it progress; what was once on bathroom walls is finally out in the open; saves on repainting/scrubbing the walls I suppose..!

I am very happy all my kids are grown with kids of their own...

I probably wouldn't agree with it being publicly posted, I think if kids are curious, they should be able to get answers for the school or their parents. Besides they will just seek it out for themselves on the internet, and we all know how that one goes
haha

Otherwise it is probably a bit irresponsible to publicly advertise it to minors... Especially stuff like anal! Haha

What the hell?

This has no place in a school.

That stuff is for learning on your own. Not a schools job.

what if " learning this stuff on their own " has resulted in the current teen pregnancy stats

I do not want to insult mr Ellis's daughter - but I suspect that she knows more about sex than her father thinks she does

God forbid parents have to talk to their children about what the internet has already taught them.

God forbid we use our public education system to properly educate our kids about sex and what it entails.

For shame.

American's outrage at teaching sex to children, while being 100% ok with selling sex to children is so ironic I can't even properly finish this sentence.

Ah, the kids today. When I was in school my teachers never taught us about sex, if you don't count the priest in kindergarten.

I suppose at their next meeting that school board is going to get an earful.

Teaching sex is one thing and something I whole heartedly support, however sexual positions... Why do kids need to learn that??

Also, I think only kids that are curious about it and want to know should be taught. Everyone is ready at a different age, which is why it is so hard to put an age rating on sex ed.

EDIT: Also, massively agree on the irony of parents not wanting to talk about sex, but are okay for a half naked girl with her double D's out selling their kids products... This world makes me laugh sometimes...

Exactly.

Its called a middle ground.

Teaching safe sex and how ones body will develope is great.

Teaching the ins and outs of positions and how to be a good lover? NOT NEEDED!

A complete education rather than one that doesn't hurt our precious feelings, is probably better IMO. Also, because of various societal factors, we've taught a whole generation of people to feel guilty about sex. To think it's something bad and wrong to be squared away and never discussed.

Yet we are constantly bombarded by it in the media. I'd MUCH rather the public school system, which I have some control over, be responsible for such things as sex ed, instead of Miley Cyrus and MTV.

Totally agree here, but the obvious divide that has already begun on peoples posts just goes to show how easily varied everyones view is one it. If you put up a poster talking about sex positions to 13 year olds, someone is going to loose their @#$!. This is why it should be taught to those that ask, it alleviates the responsibility (or irresponsibility) of the school and puts it all on the student.

To be honest it should be up to the parents, but what teenager wants to talk to their parents about sex? Haha

The great new HBO series "Masters and Johnson" shows what it was like when sexual education was totally off-limits and not studied or discussed in any polite circles (don't get me started on the impolite circles). And they eventually found the one position which was both easiest, the most popular once practiced, and enjoyable to men and women. Teaching that position to children? Well, maybe. I think the objection to complete sexual education in high school is that it may give kids who hadn't wanted to explore sex an excuse or a heightened curiosity to start.

What a charming thing for children to read.

Anyone would think people would WANT them to be eroticised.....

There's nothing wrong with being curious about the facts of life, it should just be when they're ready and not when society says they're ready.

Don't get me wrong, the whole 13 yr thing is too young for teaching sex acts like that. I wanna make that clear. 15 or 16 though, when honestly, most kids are sexually active in one way or another, is OK with me.

But yeah...this is the job mostly of parents, but we hardly have parenting anymore.

Well, 13, or any high school age, seems about right now. These kids aren't playing tiddlywinks in their spare time. My high school friends and I used to play softball every day in the park, ate greasy French fries at night, and collected sports cards and autographs. Now few high school kids are doing those things (except for the French fries), but are surfing the internet where sex education is a click away. So high schools at least putting a little discussion into their sexual curiosity, maybe not so bad if done well.

Nicely said. I'm amazed how easily kids can have access to porn on the internet. Google a picture of something and chances are you'll find an obscene photo. Parents can't be around their kids 100% of the time, so I'm sure they're getting most of their information from their peers and what they see on the internet.

Teens today talk about explicit sex in casual conversations with the opposite sex. The "F" bomb is used so casually they don't even realize when they say it. All I have to say is times have sure changed.

I appreciate that, I was already in contact with drugs and smoking at the age of 13, it wouldn't have bothered me! In fact I remember having sex ed at like 10 or 11 and finding it interesting.

However, like I said earlier, you say 13 is ok, and granted perhaps 70% of the students are ready to learn at thirteen, but what about that other 30%? The ones who don't want to know yet and don't take it seriously? It should be when your ready, not as soon as you hit your 13th birthday you are suddenly ready for all facts of life.

I've read about and even written about a few too many cases of gross abuse of children by school faculty to be anything remotely like comfortable. This isn't sex Ed. It crosses too hard into titillation and that's nowhere a 13yr old *EVER* needs to be by any adult guidance. "Educational" or otherwise.

Sex Ed for school to child ought to be about what it has been for generations. A biology lesson and a solid, well informed one at that....not a primer to porn. Society does PLENTY of preparing them that way and by 15-16, many could teach the style of class they propose here but still can't spell Gonorrhea or Chlamydia.

Priorities....they are ALL out of whack, IMO.
