In brief: Type of Sex Ed Info?

The results of a recent poll on sex ed in the USA conducted by NPR, the Kaiser Family Foundation, & the Kennedy School of Gov at Harvard, get us thinking abt *sources* of different kinds of sex ed info! Where kids learn "the basics/birds & bees" (at least in reference 2 heterosexual activity) may B different from where they learn about types of sex, sexual orientation, birth control, etc.

In brief: It varies

Parents, school, other kids, online, books, television and many other sources are all sources.
In my opinion, the ideal situation is where the parents start the education at home.
