Can someone be too old to take sexual education?
There is no age to learn. It is important to keep learning and discovering yourself. Do you know what non-binary is? Have you considered polyamory? Are you well informed about your partner’s anatomy? Do you know how fluid gender and sexuality can be? Are you curious about anal sex? Are you being safe? Do you know enough about STDs? Learn more. Explore more.

What age is right for sex education?
No age is right! Sex education is important at every stage, for your sexual needs vary according to age. It is important that children receive sex education at an early age that normalizes sex and creates a sex-positive frame of mind. This not only prevents them from acquiring misinformation but also ensures that they grow up to be well-informed individuals capable of having sexual and emotional relationships responsibly. It is also important to have sex education for adults for better experiences related to sex, pleasure and orgasm.
