    Agree, agree, made a similar video about the lack of education involving
    LGBT history in US schools and you make a good point in that our sexuality
    from a sex-ed standpoint isn’t taught adequately either. Can’t remember my
    sex ed classes mentioning more than a sentence about gay people being
    “attracted to the same sex,” and then moving right on. Great video, David!

    Once again Canada leading by example. Everything I ever learned about
    “being gay” was through friends, porn, and the homophobic attitude that was
    so prevalent in the US during the 80’s and 90’s kudos to our friends in the
    north.

    and this will never happen in Australia, because we are a backwards nation.
    Moving to Canada ASAP. We got our education scheme removed from the
    Government Budget and put into Mining and Resources, and our College taxes
    increased. I didn’t even learn about condoms or safe sex in High School.
    Canada seems to have their shit together tbh.

    This video spoke to me so much, my sex education was basically one existent
    but what it did talk about was all within a heterosexual context. There
    really needs to be more talk about how to have all kinds of safe sex, not
    just straight safe sex. And not just that, there needs to be education in
    terms of what a healthy relationship looks like within both a straight and
    gay context (there isn’t much talk about healthy relationships at all, or
    at least not in England where I live).

    I live in Ottawa and I am a Lesbian, I’m very glad that Ontario is doing
    this. The only kinda down part is every time someone says gay my class will
    look at me… So I think I’m going to get looked at through out the whole
    lesson (possibly) but on the other hand, people will understand that
    anybody can get Aids and all those infections, not just LGBTQ! Thanks David
    for making these videos! ❤️

    I’m from a tiny country in Europe, and in our biology class we didn’t learn
    about relationships at all (not even heterosexual one’s) but I remember
    when it came to SexEd, STD transmission, etc. MSM was listed under “other
    practices” together with ..I don’t even want to mention that.. lesbian sex
    wasn’t in it at all. My teacher was mentally ill, and hospitalized for it
    the same year. So my sex education SUCKED! I’m so glad that other countries
    and regions finally include more of non-hetero-normative information,
    allthough I think it still very much depends on the teachers whether or not
    this content in particular is well presented. Just look at Lavern Cox, she
    has done so much for a better dialog of what it means to be transgender (I
    know different subject, but it’s along these lines of missunderstanding or
    misrepresentation in the classroom/TV/…). Then again there was no
    representation or discussion plattform before, so I think it is a step in
    the right direction.
    Thanks for making this video.

    Growing up in Germany I was ensured to have some sort of sex ed during
    elementary, as well as high school, because it is a mandatory part in the
    curriculum. However I personally found this to be highly dependent on the
    teacher. My primary school teacher was a very dedicated person and thus I
    feel like we talked about it very in depth while still maintaining an age
    appropriate context. I also can’t help but think that the interdisciplinary
    nature of primary school lessons (my teacher was giving about 2/3rds of our
    lessons) made this far easier for our teacher to give us the big picture.
    Later on in high school it is only a mandatory topic in the biology
    curriculum and thus I only remember some highly ashamed teacher going over
    the private parts in one of the last lessons of the year, believe me, I
    wouldn’t have gotten much of an education on sex from that even if I were
    heterosexual.
    There were honourable exceptions though, in 9th grade I had a great
    religious ed teacher who devoted a HUGE part (I’m talking like at least a
    third of the school year) on relationships, sexuality and even AIDS. I
    think homosexuality was talked about a bit but probably more like as a side
    note while tackling AIDS.

    +Davidoutt. Thanks for making this video, have been watching your vlogs for
    some time now. Also a big shoutout to everyone for writing YouTube comments
    actually worthwhile to read!

    My sex-ed classes (called Family Life Education) were extremely general.
    They covered male and female genitalia, but nothing on sex at all. Not even
    heterosexual sex. They only briefly covered safe-sex practices, focusing
    almost exlusively mostly on abstinence. If this is coming from Loudoun
    County, VA, I can’t imagine what’s happening elsewhere.

  11. Matthew Daniel says:

    I to believe that same-sex couples and relationships need to be talked
    about in schools! Most of the information I got on gay sex was from my
    straight friends sending me gay porn which we all know isn’t a very
    appropriate or an accurate source. In school I didn’t learn a dang thing
    about lube or really about intercourse between two people in general
    besides “the penis goes into the vagina.” They tell you about condoms and
    STDs/STIs but it is never in the right manner. I walked into my high
    schools health class one day to my teacher passing out pictures of the male
    and female reproductive system and all he told us to do was label and
    color. Nothing else. The boy sitting next to me didn’t even know what his
    scrotum was and had to ask me. Talk about awkward.

    this is the first time im hearing this, this is pretty awesome.

    Surprisingly, I was fortunate enough to have a very liberal health teacher
    that taught sex ed, which was refreshing because where I’m from in So Cal,
    my home town is not very liberal at all (this was back in 2007-8 when I was
    in high school). My teacher taught both methods in a sense. She made no
    distinction,and I mean that as in she taught us how both work individually
    (straight, lesbian, gay, etc. sex ed), but the way she spoke about it to
    us, it felt as if there wasn’t even a difference, which I really valued.
    She didn’t say “If you’re into this, then this is how this works” but
    rather “sex is a consensual act between partners” (and then proceeded to
    explain each “method” of sex, and how to have safe sex depending on the
    genitalia you were working with, and also explained the concept of
    virginity and that it’s different for everyone, and that having sex with
    more than one person in your life is not shameful and that you should just
    be safe whenever you’re engaging in sexual acts).

    I think it’s great that sex ed is becoming more inclusive of same sex
    education. It’s important that now with the changing times, our concept of
    sexuality has “evolved” and so must our sexual education programs in
    schools. I believe the idea of pan, asexual, gender-fluid etc. may take
    some time to be included in sex ed programs, only because that it’s not a
    commonly known idea to the average citizen, which it is important to learn
    about, but with same sex education, I think it is a great place to start.
    The use of LGBT clubs on school campuses could also help out those who are
    struggling to discover their sexuality.

    “Don’t have sex. You will get chlamydia. And die.”

    ^Sorry for making light of the subject, but couldn’t resist. Great video.

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful brain with the world. You honestly
    have the most attractive personality of any youtube person. Keep it up. 

  16. Neal Coryell says:

    The students in Ontario schools are very fortunate that opposite gender and
    same gender relationships are being discussed. There are several states
    that do not allow sex education at all. And if it is allowed, it focuses on
    abstinence. That is why there is such a problem with teen pregnancy in the
    US.

    Totally digging your long hair. I didn’t know English well enough to
    understand what sex Ed was, add to that the rise of the aids virus plus
    people’s paranoia much like today with Ebola. Good on you guys for taking
    that first step in education.

  18. Lancelot Murra says:

    Agree. Let alone homosexual sex education, sex is a taboo subject and there
    are not a lot of sex ed in Asia. In my high school, our teacher only taught
    us ways of contraception but not how people have sex.
    BUT, people have argued that if homosexual sex were taught in schools,
    should the education system also include 3somes (e.g. double penetration),
    anal sex for heterosexual couples (both men and female receiving), or even
    more controversial sexual acts like necrophilia or sex with animals? 

  19. Jack Seshat says:

    YES THANK YOU THIS IS SO CLUE
    I mean to this day I’m still not 100% how lesbians have sex and I was
    really disgusted when I learned that as a gay person me having sex would
    involve someone putting stuff up my butt. I think adding same-sex education
    to the curriculum is a great idea.
    ALSO YOUR LONG HAIR REALLY SUITS YOU 

  20. like-an-umlaut in-english says:

    I totally agree with you . I think that school schould be teaching about
    gender aswell and other sexual oriantations.
    My sex ed at school was not abstinece only, but still very hetero and cis
    normative. Our teacher didn’t know that intersex people exist… .-.

  21. Simona Omina says:

    This is weird. Just realized I never had sex education and I’m 16 and
    I’m at high school :D

  22. Greggo Holloway says:

    Damn, same-sex education in America? HAHA, I wish.. especially in the
    south?… we will get there kicking and screaming. Damn, Canada seems to be
    on top of their shit compared to America. 

  23. garysdeskcom says:

    I am glad that they are including same-sex education information. Straight
    sex ed is almost completely useless for gay and lesbian students. I think
    helping straight kids get a sense that same-sex relationships are still
    loving and are OK is important. I have to give Ontario 100% for taking the
    step. My hope is that the religious right will not become nasty and
    political over the planned changes. Even the traditional sex education is
    not always helpful. I read a news report recently indicating that most
    students are getting sex education from pornography, which is not the most
    realistic place to get good sense of what sex is about.
