  4. 4. Sex.Sex. Basically, it is one of the few words that catch our attention. Whenever we see the word “sex” in magazines, newspapers and other print materials, we tend to stop at some point and become interested to read the article where it is written. It’s not because we simply feel the urge to read about sex but perhaps the “questioning self ” wants to clarify and discover the truth about this matter. In liberal democracies, sex is viewed as a normal activity for both adults and teenagers. Whether they are married or not, in a serious relationship or just in a fling, they engage to this kind of human activity. In fact, most of their High School youngsters have this “get laid plans” before entering college. For them, sex is not a big deal. So, their state colleges and universities came up with a decision to integrate sex education into their classrooms as a regular part of instructions. Back to Table of Content #Slide 1
  5. 5. In the Philippines, it’s very different. Whenever we say the word “sex”, we are labeled as “rude”. No wonder why if we heard of “sex” we directly associate it to “vulgarity”. We cannot blame ourselves because we are living in a society with a stronghold of moral standards and conservatism. Some of us are still walking around the circular path of Father Damaso’s preachings in Noli, dictating us not to do this and that, which made us all hypocrites at the end of the day.

  6. 6. For sure, you haven’t heard your parents explain to you what sex is. We only encounter this word when we meet our friends, classmates, neighbors and the internet. We’ve got bits of information from our peers of the same age, brought about by curiosity and eagerness to know. We’ve got nothing from our moms and dads. It feels like everyone in our family is keeping his or her mouth shut when it comes to sex. Maybe, it’s not because they don’t want us to know what it is all about, but because they don’t know how to convey their thoughts. They find it awkward to share what they knew since they themselves have no backgrounds on sex education. Frankly speaking, majority of the Filipino families doesn’t have proper socio- cultural background in dealing with this particular matter. They find malice in educating us about sex. That’s why you can still hear children up to now, calling their organs “bird” and “flower”. Back to Table of Content
  7. 7. If the family, as the basic social unit and the ideal source of first learnings, is not capable of providing sex education, then it would be better if the government takes the responsibility in order to address these needed knowledge and values. It would be difficult for the children to understand things that are hidden and not well explained. Just like how my friend, way back in his childhood days, asked his dad why his mom got pregnant. The only answer he got was that “kapag masayang-masaya ang isang babae, mabubuntis sya.” Now tell me, is my friend’s dad a good sex educator? Does this statement would help him know what the truth about sex is?
  8. 8. We cannot deny that we are in the state of adolescence, whereas we have these raging hormones that are easily stimulated by uncensorable knowledge from non-school, techno-social environment. Such stimulation could possibly bring us all to the world of undesirable consequences. The Young Adult Fertility Survey conducted by University of the Philippines Population Institute said that there’s a significant percentage of early to late adolescents who are already into premarital sex. This resu reflects our society today. Talk about our friends in High School who have their babi before or after graduation. Talk about Nene in “Katorse” who feared about her nanay’s reaction rather than the burndens she’ll carry after having unsafesex. Problems regarding ignorance in sex are indeed rampant.
  9. 9. With SexEd, the intention is not to encourage young ones to engage into sex but to propagate learnings instead. As long as highly influential institutions, like the Church, are there, willing to guide and give assistance, we will not forget how to draw the line between what is moral and not. If our government will continue to adhere to all the medieval age thinking, I doubt if we could help this country from preventing Rapid Population Growth. As what Conrado de Quiros said “It’s the Education, not the Sex”, true indeed that we’re for education and not of sex. However massive screening and studies must be allotted regarding this matter if ever our government would implement sex education as part of our private and public schools’ curricula. We can never say “never”, when in fact we’re not blind of the rampant controversies around us and when our eyes are all open, widely open to see those problems. Let us not be miopic in these issues. Let us think of the future and most importantly, THINK OF TODAY.
  10. 10. TheImportanceof Sex Education for Our Generation Today
  11. 11. Sex education is needful and necessary for our young ones. Being mindful of the exposure given to our young ones in school, in the media and among their peers, sex education teaches our young ones about sexual intimacy, but also enlightens them on their reproductive systems, birth control, and sexually transmitted diseases. It also exposes them to their gender identity, gender role, family role, body images, sexual expression (what it entails and how to tame it), intimacy and the marriage relationship. In sex education relevant important and accurate information about sexuality in both boys and girls are given depending on their age. It will be unfair and criminal to ignore or push aside the fact that they are aware of their sexuality; in whatever stage or state they are. Sex education should naturally be integrated into their lives as they grow up both by the parents, teachers and the society in a very mature way. Parents should answer their children's questions properly and information according to their level of exposure and maturity. It will not be appropriate to look embarrassed or pretend sex never exists. We might be fooling ourselves and exposing these children to untimely dangerous curiosity. The children must be taught how to cope and handle their own sexual feeling, use of drugs and urges. Prior to the time of sex education, parents should develop good communication with their children. Be their friends, have positive attitude to sex, yourself. Back to Table of Content
  12. 12. Good relevant sex education providesknowledge, knowledgeisinformation, and information is confidence. It hasbeen noticed that well-informed children on maleand femaleAnatomy handlepuberty better than theuninformed ones. Sex education affectsachild'sattitude positively. Each sex (maleor female) becomesmoretolerant of theothersbehaviour pattern and option. A sexuality oriented child learnsto believein thequality of men and women, the sacrament of marriageand parental responsibilities. With well accepted sex education, thereisusually alower rateof unwanted pregnancy and spread of sexually transmitted diseases. To thepure, all thingsarepure. When sex ispassed down to our children from apureheart, they too receiveit with apureheart. It isnot truethat when children aretaught anything about sex, they out rightly go and experiment with sex, with contraception, masturbation and homosexuality. Theseoccur when they areignorantly curiosand when they areuneducated and exposed to unprotected sex and pornographic materials. Back to Table of Content
  13. 13. What is sexual health? Taking care of your sexual health means more than being free from sexually transmissible infections (STIs) or not having to face an unplanned pregnancy. It means taking responsibility for your body, your health, your partner’s health and your decisions about sex.
  14. 14. Your body's changing When you become a teenager, your body changes and develops towards sexual maturity (basically, you go from being a child to an adult). This is called "puberty". There are visible changes to your body as well as changes inside. Girls start having periods every month and their breasts grow. For guys, erections become much more frequent and unused sperm is released in semen during a "wet dream" (usually at night during sleep). Being aware about these changes to your body and knowing they are a normal part of puberty is important. Back to Table of Content
  15. 15. Being safe with sex Being safe with sex means caring for both your own health, and the health of your partner. This means being able to talk freely with your partner, both being ready for sex and agreeing on the use of condoms and a suitable type of contraception. Being safe protects you from getting or passing on sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and an unplanned pregnancy. You will enjoy good sexual health if you take care of your genitals (parts of your body that are involved in sex) and avoid any risky behaviour. Back to Table of Content

  18. 18. Contraception Contraception is a way to prevent pregnancy, and is sometimes called "birth control". Some forms of contraception such as condoms can also help reduce the spread of sexually transmissible infections (STIs). Contraception is a very important part of making sure sex is safe and being responsible for your actions. Back to Table of Content
  19. 19. The pill The pill, which is another name for oral contraception, is a very popular type of contraception and involves girls taking a tablet at the same time every day. There are two main types of pills available: Back to Table of Content
  20. 20. Condoms A condom is a rubber sleeve worn by guys on their penis. Using a condom is very important to help protect you from STIs, including HIV. But remember, some STIs such as genital herpes and genital warts can spread from person to person even when condoms are used. Back to Table of Content
  21. 21. Sexually transmissible infections Sexually transmissible infections (STIs) are infections that can be passed on from one person to another during sex. The most common STIs in Australia are genital herpes, genital warts, chlamydia, trichomoniasis, gonorrhoea, hepatitis B, syphilis, and HIV. Back to Table of Content
  22. 22. Find out more about these and other STI's • Bacterial vaginosis • Candidates/thrush • Chlamydia • Crabs/pubic lice • Genital herpes • Genital warts / HPV infection • Gonorrhea • Hepatitis A • Hepatitis B • Hepatitis C • HIV/AIDS • Non-specific urethritis • Scabies • Syphilis • Trichinosis
  23. 23. Symptoms Many STIs have no obvious symptoms, so a person can often have an STI without knowing it. A person with an STI may look and feel perfectly healthy. While some infections appear to go away without treatment, they actually stay active in the body (eg. in the bloodstream or lining of your throat, cervix or anus). This means that you can pass an STI onto other sexual partners and even your baby without knowing that you are infected.Back to Table of Content

  26. 26. Sexual health checks A sexual health check is a check-up by a health professional for sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and othersexual health problems. It also gives you a chance to ask questions relating to your sexuality and sexual and reproductive health. Back to Table of Content
