    Holy crap, my middle school used the pancake puberty video too! The girls were weirded out and the boys were intrigued for a whole year until the genders got to watch each others’ videos.

    Kudos to all you sex educators. You’re doing good works.

    Looking forward to the survey. :)

    Thank you so much. I wish there had been an open dialogue when i was younger, and that it didn’t take until now, at 23 for me to feel like I owned my sexual identity.

    Also, I found this video addressed some of the same conversation points:

  3. Yes, Go Team Fun! The census is in the works. Won’t be available for a few more weeks. It’s gonna be big. BIG! And I’m gonna need every last sex nerd to make this puppy count. STAND UP AND BE COUNTED, SEX NERDS! … literally.

    Everybody take a deep breath…aaaand…let it go…ahhhhh…

    I liked this episode a lot. Definitely the most interesting part of “sex education,” to me, anyway. It was a well paced episode, you guys got through all your topics and stuff, yet I still want 3 more hours of classroom techniques & cute/hilarious questions.

      Wow thanks for insightful and helpful comment Markus although I am fully aware this is not facebook what I am not aware of was the location of the census her website seemed like a reasonable place to ask the question so again thank you! You will notice that everything on this comment is not in short hand so you don’t have to stretch your brain capacity to much : ) xxx
