Instead, the first thing I do is establish ground rules. Only then can we get to work. In the back corner of my classroom is an old shoebox with a hole cut into the top of it.
Next to the box are scraps of paper and some pencils. This is the Question Box, a place where kids can drop any question they have about human sexuality. I answer the questions both during class time and on a blog I maintain at school. Here are some actual questions from students and my answers to them. They run the gamut from innocent to downright technical. My answers are exactly as I gave them, to show how even a simple question allows for both information and value clarification to be offered in response.
Here goes:. There are two ways to answer this question. From the biological perspective, sex feels good for an important evolutionary reason. Our bodies have evolved so that our genital regions, as well as many, many other parts of the body, are sensitive to sexual stimulation.
A part of the body that brings sexual pleasure when stimulated is called an erogenous zone. This does not mean just our genitals. All of us have many places on our bodies that result in sexual pleasure when stimulated.
The mechanisms of sexual pleasure involve a combination of nerve impulses, blood flow, and muscle tension. The second reason sex feels good is that humans have developed the emotional capacity to feel love, intimacy, and passion. These emotional states highlight and deepen sexual pleasure. While pleasure can exist without these emotions, it is much more ificant when they are present. As you can see, I think it takes a lot for a couple to be ready to engage in sexual activity. Condoms are made to be condoms; balloons are made to be balloons.
Condoms, when used correctly, are an essential tool in reducing the risk of pregnancy and STIs. No condom substitute balloon, plastic baggie, sock—whatever will provide the same level of protection, and some can do more harm than good.
So insist on the original! Condoms can be purchased at any local drugstore; there are no age requirements for buying condoms and no prescriptions are necessary. Free condoms are available from many health clinics, sexual health agencies, and even some schools although ours does not provide free condoms at this time. People can react in all kinds of ways when they like you. Some people get really quiet around you. Others will make sure you notice them. Some will tease you or act annoying. Some will just silently stare at you yes, that can feel a little creepy. The best way to figure out if a guy likes you is to ask him!
Might it feel awkward to do that? You might want to resort to the middle-school tactic of asking your friends to ask his friends if he really likes you or not, but that makes the whole thing so much more public than it needs to be. In an I message, you describe the situation, say what you feel, and say what you want or need. Below are two different I messages you might try or make up your own! So, I was just wondering, do you like me? Believe it! Then go ask him.
