Sex Ed Teachers Share The Funniest Things They've Heard In Class

[rebelmouse-image 18359737 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Being a teacher is already hard, but being a teacher for a subject like sexual education comes with a huge set of challenges. The subject matter can sometimes be awkward or uncomfortable, it's hard to ask or answer questions without revealing way too much about yourself, and the materials for sex ed classes are notoriously awful. One Reddit user asked:

Teachers of Sex ed, what is the most funniest/interesting things you've heard?

We picked a few responses from non-teachers as well - cause a great sex question is a great sex question. Obviously, some of the stuff here won't be safe for younger or more sensitive readers. So move forward with caution.

Hear That?

[rebelmouse-image 18359738 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A guy asked if size mattered when it comes to sex. The teacher replied no and reassured the class it was okay no matter the size. Then the guy that asked the question looked down and said out loud, "Hear that little guy?" Everyone was crying their eyes out from laughter.

Sex While Pregnant

[rebelmouse-image 18359739 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

As a teacher, I was about six months pregnant when a pair of high school girls asked me, "Can you have sex while you're pregnant?" I answered honestly that yes, one can as long as doctor says the pregnancy is normal and one can comfortably do so. They were absolutely scandalized. The looks they gave me for weeks were silently screaming, "OMG she's all big and pregnant having sex!"

Yup, Some Women Ejaculate

[rebelmouse-image 18359740 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I was in Sex Ed class when I was about eleven years old. When we got onto the subject of ejaculation, the teacher went on to explain that men ejaculate and where it comes from. I put my hand up and asked where a womans ejaculate came from since we didn't produce semen.

I was told that women can't ejaculate.

I was told they can't, my parents were called, and I got into a world of s***.

Mom-Teaching Moment: Failure

[rebelmouse-image 18359741 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

About a year ago my 9 year old son asked about periods, so I explained it in as straightforward and relatively age appropriately way as I could. Basically, every month, a woman's body gets ready to have a baby, and if there isn't a sperm there to fertilize the egg, then the body gets rid of the lining of the uterus and there won't be a baby.

Fast forward to about a month ago, and my son asks me, a little fearfully, "So, do you just kill a baby every month?"

Holy crap, for about a year, he thought I've been killing babies every month!!

Vulva And Volvo Are Not The Same Thing

[rebelmouse-image 18359742 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

In my question box I often received "What is a vulva?"...

As always, I read the question aloud and immediately a student's hand shot up and he goes "ooo! ooo! I know this one"

... I don't usually take student answers during question box time, but he was just so thrilled to know an answer to something that his peers seemingly didn't that to not call on the poor boy would have crushed him. So I did... To which he smiled the biggest smile and proudly exclaimed:

"That's a car!"

I managed to pour tea down my shirt as I did my best to keep from breaking down in the kinds of laughter that destroy a student... He was pretty mortified when I explained what it actually was...

The Series Of Facial Expressions

[rebelmouse-image 18359743 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A student asked in class about oral sex... We had talked about how it was mouth to nether region contact for sexual stimulation, and the various risks that it carries (STIs/STDs, social stigmas, peer pressure, etc), but he just didn't quite grasp the concept...

Until he did... The series of facial expressions I'll never forget:

  • OH! (excited that he finally figured it out)
  • OH... (awkward and a little grossed out by the concept)
  • Oh. (beet red at the embarrassment of now knowing)
  • Thousand yard stare.

"So, Are You A Virgin?"

[rebelmouse-image 18359744 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I went to a pretty conservative Catholic grade school and our sex ed (or "reproductive education" as it was called) was, as you might expect was pretty conservative. It stressed abstinence before marriage, masturbation as a sin, etc... The class a year behind me had a kid who was weird, mostly misunderstood, but weird... They were discussing virginity and waiting until marriage and weird kid raises his hand. Teacher stops and calls on him, she was young, unmarried, and pretty hot (many of the middle school boys had a crush on her...). In full deadpan he asks, "So, are you a virgin?" Cue silence in the room... Red-faced teacher composes herself and says that is not appropriate. He shoots back, "So, that's a no..." He was suspended for a week and every student knew.

Bleached

[rebelmouse-image 18359745 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Am a teacher, the weirdest one wasn't weird because of assumptions, but because I'd never thought about it. Two girls had a passionate discussion during sex ed, whispering fiercely. One decided _*"We can ask the teacher. Miss, why do women bleach their butts?" *_They both were dead serious, looking at me with big eyes. I had to look it up.

Forty-eight Inches

[rebelmouse-image 18346431 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Not a teacher, but a student at the time. A girl asked the teacher how big a penis can be.

Teacher: On average, four to eight inches.

Girl: Forty-eight inches!?

Class starts laughing lol.

So Unfair

[rebelmouse-image 18345178 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'm a science teacher. Teaching about sex is the easiest bit of it because the kids really want to know all about it.

It's difficult when I explain all the changes that girls go through. Like: grow boobs, get special underwear for that, bleed for five days, possibly suffer horrendous pain so that the lining of your uterus can come out into the new thing in your underwear. After that, when I explain what happens to guys some of the girls quite rightly say "so that's all that happens to guys? This is so unfair!"

And I haven't even told them what happens when they are actually pregnant yet.

Ooh Ribbing

[rebelmouse-image 18359746 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Not a teacher, was a student in the same class as a teacher was passing out condoms for us to see different types. Teacher was quietly droning on about something when suddenly a girl at the back of the class exclaims, "Oooh! Ribbing!"

It was so sudden, and so passionately delivered, that the entire class promptly descended in to hysterics. The condoms were collected quickly by the teacher.

Video Games Are A Good Reason To Abstain

[rebelmouse-image 18359747 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My brother teaches Sex Ed and has shared a couple entertaining stories.

My favorite is from an exercise his school runs where the students list all the good reasons to have sex and all the good reasons to abstain (trying to get the kids thinking logically about the choice).

He said that every class he ran the exercise with ended up keeping "Fortnite" and "PUBG" as good reasons to abstain.

Where?

[rebelmouse-image 18350539 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When I was in sex-ed my teacher had the idea of us anonymously writing questions we wanted to know on notecards so we could learn without being embarrassed or calling attention to ourselves. The first question she got was "Where do you put the penis in the vagina?"

She answered "Yes."

Sneezed Out A Tampon

[rebelmouse-image 18350060 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Sex educator here, middle school through adults. one year, a student interrupted my flow about menstrual tools to say she once sneezed out her tampon and it landed next to her on the sidewalk.

I took a seat at an empty desks in the circle and finally advised that this was yet another reason to wear underwear while bleeding.

Circumcision

[rebelmouse-image 18346664 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I wasn't a teacher but my mum was.

She once spoke how a bunch of twelve year olds thought you got circumcised the first time you had sex. Like your foreskin would rip off when you lost your virginity.

I can sort of see the logic, sort of similar to people thinking the hymen breaks the first time when a girl has sex.

Wet Math

[rebelmouse-image 18359748 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

This one just happened! My boyfriend had to teach sex ed at his school, and a student slipped him a note that said, "Can you get wet dreams when you're awake in math class?"

My boyfriend didn't know how to answer that. I guess if you had an excellent imagination?

People Describe The Real Reason They Cut Ties With Their Best Friend

Friendships are one the most important and intimate connections young people make. Friends are the people you are close to, who you grow up with, and who are always there for you when you need them.

A majority of people have best friends. That's the one friend who you trust and love above everyone else. The one who has proven he'll always be there for you and the one you're ready to drop everything for.

However, not all friendships are meant to last. Sometimes, one or both of you will change. Other times, you'll just drift apart. And sometimes, the friendship will end because of malicious actions. Redditors seem to have a lot of those stories!

People Describe How The Smallest Amount Of Internet Fame Went To Someone's Head

Thanks to the internet and social media, it's never been easier to become famous.

Indeed, some people have used social media to such an effect, that they are as or more well known than any number of movie stars.

But others might have put something on the internet just for fun, unaware that they had a viral sensation on their hands ("Charlie bit my finger" anyone?).

Some people soak in this unexpected fame for a moment or two, and then let it pass as they go on with their lives.

Others, however, might enjoy being unexpectedly famous, and will relish in their unexpected celebrity for the rest of their lives.

No matter how small an audience their internet fame reached.
