  •  So what terminology do you use? (5+ / 0-)

    In England, they use the term "lady garden" (in much the way we use the term "lady parts").  Neither seems terribly appropriate for a secondary school sex education class.

    Of course, since they won't teach the kids the proper anatomical terminology, they'll be like the kids whose parents opted out of sex ed classes when I was in 7th grade, who preferred a four letter term best not used, even by a commenter known to say "shit" and "fuck" in his comments, and definitely not appropriate for secondary school sex ed.

    This all in places where the teen pregnancy rate is off the charts.
