Sex-ed teachers of reddit, what is the craziest misconception you have cleared up?(r/AskReddit)
So im not a sex ed teacher. But my little sister was 13 and my brother had just gotten married. I mentioned to my sister that i thought it was weird that my brother is going to the same cabin as my father had for his honeymoon with my stepmom.
My little sister said it wasnt weird because sex is only for having babies, and since my brother didnt want kids for five years they wouldnt be having sex, and that my dad was too old to have kids so they also never have sex.
Explaining to her that there are more reasons for sex was awkward.
Also, my sister in law until she was 16 thought that sex meant you layed side by side and the sperm crawled out of the guys belly button and into the girls belly button.
We were all homeschooled, and christian.
In case anyone was wondering, my mother never gave any of us any kind of “growing up talk” no birds and the bees, no puberty nothing. She did put a copy of “the care and keeping of you” under my door with a note saying I should read it, it is an american girl company book on your changing body. Bras appeared in my drawers but nothing was ever said. There was a steady supply of sanitary products, but I never even told her I got my period I just figured it out. So yea, unless you looked it up yourself, you knew nothing.
