Sex. It’s just a thing. A fun thing, a scary thing, a sexy thing—but it’s a thing. Let’s learn about it, and teach it, and do it right, and kindly, and responsibly—and stay safe. Knowledge is safety—not ignorance.

“This video has been age-restricted based on our Community Guidelines.”facepalm 

“Yet it shows videos of people bleeding and fighting and there is no problem with that. Violence is safer for children to watch than sex! Glad to know society cares more about destruction of humanity than its creation! :)”

“Well that was a refreshingly healthy take on puberty and sex, far better than children growing up feeling dirty and ashamed of their natural bodily functions.”
