Definitely, these days youngsters get to know more about sex, a lot faster than we were enlightened about it. Usually, the information that is passed on to them is by their friends, porn magazines, adult films and such kind of material. In most cases, information passed is either incorrect, distorted or exaggerated. Further, teens and youths must be taught about sex education, not just in schools in urban areas but also in rural areas, so that they do not fall prey to HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies. Whether one likes it or not, sex has moved from our bedrooms to living rooms and teenagers are exposed to sexual material, adult content and porn. So if it is so much evident, then one might as well make sure that they get the information in the right manner, isnt it?

No, It will spoil the life,culture, tradition etc.
If sex education is implemented, To samajho desh ka satyanash ho jayega.
we should not forget, that what is country, culture, tradition. etc.
I am strongly against this.

I think, sex education is nessacary after the 10 th standard. Before that, if we teach them, then childrens may tend to know more and go the wrong way.
The Childrens will try to learn more about themselves and their bodies practically with thier freinds of opposite sex, from thier own school or neighbourhood.
Ultimately, the childrens will loose intrest in thier studies and get out of the way.

Afcourse, chid hasbeen came of this time a mode of turn , these days youngsters get to know more about sex, a lot faster than we were enlightened about it.

I think the people who are opposing are the hypocrites. Its very much known fact...that childrens do know about sex.....from various other ways.Mostly from friends...who share the information...with other friends, and its natural ....that their information has lot to do about the way they interpret. and thats very different from the real facts. Parents, teachers and other elders avoid to talk with kids.... so there's a gap in communicatin with the kids. which is the reason---why kids normally dont ask about it, when they wanna know some information --coz they feel shy. so who they turn to---their friends "someone who got bits and piece of information. So, they assume their friend as right and believe him. This is the fact. AND those who say....we dont wanna talk about it n all......maybe they are the ones who came to know about all these through the same ...way...from friends and enjoy that sort of wrong and mis informations..and its very stupid to know that they also want the new gen ...more

Yes definitely but that should be implemented only after 10th or 12th standard.It is a subject that should be a part of our studies inorder to aware the consequences.Lets be practical, We are living in a world of science, when science cannot invent the medicine for a dreadful diseases like AIDS and others, that is transmitted through sexual transmission 95 % than why not be aware of this.There is already the famous sayin"Prevention is better than cure",than lets apply this in our day to day life ya.This can be done only through sex education,If our sibblings,colleagues and our young generation becomes aware of this than we can have a good chance of eradicating it.But it shouldnt be taught below the 10th standard as what the other have told i woudnt say much,it will lose the identity of the young genaration.Sex will become nothing.So let the government decide the good the bad and the ugly..Lets pray and hope for the best..

Not necessary but the way our electronic entertainment media is serving sex as brand of of pepsi generation, i think there is no problem to provide sex education in school as our new generation is leaning too much from our movies n other sources in bad manner.
atleast we can expect from school they they will provide in a better way.
