I agree that sex is something that can only be taught verbally. Romance is maybe something that could be more interactive. I remember a term at school where one session a week we'd discuss many things from what rape actually is (and paedophilia) , many scenarios around how to interact in relationships, making sure that understood that we could say no at anytime, what the first experience might be like and what to do if you feel like your being pressured into sex. In some ways, it was like a sex and relationship ethics programcarnex said:My view on that is following
Romance and sex are perhaps the most individual preferences and expressions of preferences one has.
I mean, basic mechanics are usually taught by either schools and/or parents. Also there are books with more detailed instructions, techniques etc. And I do think young people should be exposed to material. But quite soon everyone understands that most of the people have some preferences that are not really covered in books. Experimentation and expression of wishes and preferences is much more important than preloading with theoretical knowledge.
Not necessarily. But that certainly is the most fun way to learn it!krazykidd said:...does sex really need to be learned by trial and error?
admittedly I am a virgin, but one of my old flatmates was a bit of a player, had a massive dick, shagged a load of girls etc... But all the girls I knew that shagged him agreed that he was terrible. No foreplay, no nothing, they hated it, they said it was almost like he had no idea what a girl actually wanted!TopazFusion said:This is also why it doesn't matter if you're a virgin. Because everyone's a virgin whenever they sleep with someone new.

That was halarious! And probably very usefull information .
No there are ways to learn before doing some more frowned upon than others.krazykidd said:
