Silicon Valley Parents Freak Out Over Sex Ed

Even parents in one of the richest, most progressive cities in the nation worry about what their kids are learning about sex.More than 1,600 parents in Palo Alto, California, have signed a petition to stop their school district’s sex education program until it’s changed. These Silicon Valley parents say they are concerned by descriptions provided to middle school students that describe explicit sexual experiences including masturbation, premarital sex, and the use of sex toys.The parents’ petition argues the curriculum is seductive rather than educational, and “leads 7th graders to follow the examples of a wrong age group and encourages 12 years olds to try sex for ‘wonderful orgasm.’”“Are you willing to let your 12 years old learn how to have sex from high schoolers?” the petition asks.The Palo Alto Unified School District curriculum provided to middle school students includes a range of fictional situations with characters older than the 12-year-old students being taught. Examples range from positive (“I’d had orgasms through masturbation before, but sharing yourself with someone you love and respect was really different and it felt wonderful”) to negative (“I started to cry”).
