8 Books That Helped '80s Kids Fill In The Blanks On Sex Ed | HuffPost Canada ParentsIf sex education were anything like the typical hormonal teenager learning about it in classrooms, it would probably be hunched over in its desk right now, hoping it hasn't sweated through the armpits of its shirt from all the attention it's getting. First, there was the uproar from more socially-conservative folks and concerned parents over Ontario's revised curriculum in , which included the concepts of gender identity, sexual orientation and masturbation. Then last week, there was outrage from the curriculum's supporters as new premier Doug Ford rolled back the curriculum to its version, which many have said puts LGBTQ children in danger. As Ontario's education minister goes back and forth on what students will actually be taught in the classroom, we don't expect that sex education will be out of the spotlight anytime soon cue sex education sinking even lower into its chair, wondering if its forehead is shiny. And all of this attention got us thinking about how we learned about sex back when we were too humiliated to ask our parents or teacher about the hair down there or whether you could get pregnant in a hot tub. Perhaps we read them by flashlight under the covers of our beds, or confidently out in the open, while munching on a fruit roll-up and waiting for the "Sun In" we'd sprayed in our hair to dry. Either way, the s and '80s were a veritable goldmine of books that gave us many of the answers we didn't even know we needed at the time whether they were official sex ed books or not.
