My kids are watching their Sex Education movies this week in school the same way I did many moons ago when I was in elementary school. We had to sign a permission form and the school invited the parents to screen the movie, so I went and watched. I was intrigued. I thought it was very good, a bit more contemporary than when I was in school. The production value has gotten a lot better and the material was pretty much right on spot. Still, I found a few things in the girl’s and boy’s videos that were quite funny, and a bit inaccurate.
Regarding the boys, there’s a scene where the young male actor goes to his father and discusses penis size. The boy is concerned about having a small penis and the peer pressure surrounding that. He basically says to his dad, “What if I’m not big enough?” I thought that was pretty funny because nobody is going to know his penis size unless he shows them. And, surely at that age, he’s not showing anybody.
Plus, 4th grade boys in this society are not at all concerned with penis size: it’s a fact. I’ll go on record stating that I know with 100%, absolute certainty that penis size is the furthest thing from their minds, because 4th grade boys today are consumed with:
1. Mario Kart 7
2. Mario 3D Land
3. Luigi’s Super U
4. Luigi’s Mansion
5. Mario Kart Wii
7. Super Mario Bros. 2
8. Super Mario Bros. University
9. Xbox fitness
10. Super Smash Bros.
As far as the girl’s video is concerned, the young, female actor went to her mom concerned about menstruation. The whole process was daunting to her. Her mom tells her that after awhile, she won’t even notice that her periods are there. I laughed to myself because boy-oh-boy that couldn’t be further from the truth. Hello! Girls will always know when it’s approaching, when they’re on it, and when it’s about to leave because you will have many years of:
1. Getting pissy at the drop of a dime
2. Murder tendencies
3. Breasts swollen like watermelons
6. Water retention
7. Uncontrollable hunger
8. Mood swings
9. Acne breakouts
10. Weight gain
Last, the parents failed to tell the kids straight-up that if they’re caught doing anything inappropriate their arses will be in a lot of trouble. So, the movies were good, but they left a few things out: wink-wink.
