When I was a youngin we had these really boring clinically depressing classes on sexual health. They were obviously trying to teach us something they thought was really important because we had virtually the same course in 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th grade. Of course there some slight increasing complexity in each iteration, but the basic material was the same.
This is a penis. It is connected to the testicles. They make the spermies, which want to get out, but you must never let them.
This is the vagina. It is a collapsible tube that the penis is inserted into during intercourse. At the end of the vagina is the place where babies are made. And so on…
I was, as always, the ultimate nerd in these classes. I studied and studied…and I memorized all of the material. It was very exciting stuff!! It combined my natural science geekitude with my normal teenage hormonality. It was great!
The majority of our time in each of these classes was devoted to all the ways that sex would hurt you: pregnancy and stds. The worst possible thing you could ever do is end up pregnant with chlamydia. If that happened, you were the a lost soul and life as you knew it would end forever. Of course they told us all the things you could get and that you could prevent getting them by not having sex (big duh!) or using a condom. It got really redundant.
In my fooling around on the internet, I found a preview for a Sex Ed oriented video game. I am not much of a gamer, but somehow I doubt it is going to be the latest fad amongst the kids. Shooting pubic lice with a gun will never be as exciting as those Grand Theft Auto games are intended to be.
What do you think? Am I wrong? Will Privates be the latest crazy for tweens? How many levels do you think this game will have?
