The sad reality of today's world is that mainstream culture is now filled with images of physical intimacy and intercourse, allowing kids to see and learn about these mature subjects at a much younger age. We've come a long way from the dated beliefs about intercourse and the reproductive system, some of which are pretty outrageous.
Here are the most bizarre moments in sex education videos from a time when adults had nothing better to do than carry around diagrams of the human body and invade the personal boundaries of children.
I Had A Wet Dream Last Night
Though it's worth watching the entire video, the strangest part occurs after the 3:45 mark as these young boys awkwardly recite dialogue that their parents probably haven't yet explained to them in real life.425Agree or disagree?
How Does It Get Hard?
In this clip, a young boy is taught about the physiological processes that lead to male arousal by a much older man. What makes this bit worse is the scuzzy couch they sit on together in what looks like the older man's basement.
The cringe-worthiness is accentuated by the graphic diagrams of male arousal and how often the man asks the boy if he experiences such stimulation.
Shake it off! Shake it off! Next...3112Agree or disagree?
Some Women Still Call Menstruation the Curse
Skip to 00:28 for a kind moment between mother and daughter – quickly interrupted by the awkward, smirking father who almost blames the mother for his child's body rhythm.
4:24 is where the young girl, Molly, learns how to put on a pad that is less revealing than some bikinis seen at an everyday beach. Why should you see this? The pad comes with a belt. Accessorize!
5:39: Here we learn what can and can't be done while on your period. Any girl can dance on her period, but square dancing on her period is unheard of.3417Agree or disagree?
One Never Knows When The Homosexual Is About
This video teaches kids what about homosexuality...sort of.
This is a 1950's video that warns kids to avoid older members of their own gender who are too friendly because those people might be "sick in the head." The "sickness?" Homosexuality. How does one spot a homosexual? Well, it's not easy because *cue dramatic music* he may appear normal.
This one's pretty much an outdated, bizarre gem the whole way through.279Agree or disagree?
