I went to a public high school in California, where my freshman year sex ed course emphasized abstinence. I remember pretty clearly that a woman came in to warn us that even masturbating too much would make it difficult to fall in love. I think they were expecting it to go like this.
Luckily, I have awesome parents, and by that time I had seen Never Been Kissed enough times to know how sex ed was supposed to be. Most of us knew our teacher was either wildly misinformed or lying, but we had pop culture to show us the light.
Today is World Contraception Day, and organizations around the world are doing their best to spread the word about contraception options in the US and abroad. In celebration, here is sex ed with Molly Shannon, or rather, Anita from Never Been Kissed. Rufus.
