Whether you're preparing for those inevitable questions from your kids or just brushing up on the basics, this quiz will challenge your understanding and help you become the confident, informed guide your children need.

Dive in, learn something new, and bust some myths along the way—because when it comes to sex ed, being well-informed is key to fostering healthy, open conversations.

Why bother knowing the answers to sex ed questions?

Understanding sex and all that comes with it is an important facet of being human. Especially being human. It's about more than just the mechanics (that goes there); it's about equipping yourself and your loved ones with the knowledge to make informed, healthy choices.

For parents, having a strong grasp of sex ed means you're ready to answer those tricky questions with confidence and accuracy. It also creates an open space for these kinds of questions to come up freely.

Instead of dodging questions or giving vague answers, you can provide clear, honest information that not only satisfies their curiosity but also lays the groundwork for future discussions about consent, boundaries, and healthy relationships. This approach builds trust and opens the door for ongoing, open communication as they grow.

Even if you're new to understanding sex yourself, knowing about safe sex practices, consent, and the emotional aspects of intimacy can lead to more fulfilling and respectful interactions. For instance, understanding different contraception methods allows you to make informed decisions about your sexual health, promoting a sense of confidence and empowerment.

By embracing sex education, you're fostering a culture of openness and respect, both within your family and in your personal life. This knowledge not only benefits you and your loved ones but also contributes to a healthier, more informed community.

How to improve your sex education

How did you do on the sex ed quiz?? If you got more wrong than you were expecting, then you're not alone. Many of us didn't exactly get comprehensive sex education!!

Here are some key areas to focus on:

  1. Sexual Organs: Get to know the basics. Learn how to identify and explain the function of all sexual organs, all the way from the vagina down to the sperm and the fertilized egg. Understanding how this all works allows you to speak plainly and without reservation about sexual organs.

  2. Reproductive Health: Dive into the details of reproductive systems, menstrual cycles, and fertility. There are lots of ways to prevent pregnancy, sure, but more importantly: there are lots of ways to support womanhood by understanding menstrual cycles and hormones. I recommend In the Flow by Alisa Vitti to get an in-depth exploration of the menstrual cycle and how to support it.

  3. Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs): Stay informed about common STIs, which are transmitted through sexual contact. Be able to identify their symptoms, prevention, and treatment. Regular testing for sexually transmitted infections, as well as safe sex practices, are an important part to maintaining sexual health.

  4. Sexual Practices: Get to know different sexual practices, including everything from oral sex to anal and vaginal sex. Explore healthy ways to practice consent, communication, and safe sex measures for positive and respectful experiences.

  5. Gender Identity: Familiarize yourself with the spectrum of gender identities and the distinction between gender and biological sex. Respecting and understanding gender identity fosters an inclusive and supportive environment for your children throughout their own sexual journey. It also prepares you for discussions about friends at school who may lie outside of heteronormative expectations.

  6. Pregnancy Prevention: Knowledge about various contraceptive methods and their proper use is vital. Understanding the options available helps in making informed decisions about birth control. This might also be a good time to consider the options in the event of an unexpected pregnancy.
