Partly, yes, except that people need to pee to get urine out of the system, but one does not need sex to live.

@Nacklefoodle Partly, yes, except that people need to pee to get urine out of the system, but one does not need sex to live.

Actually you are entirely wrong. Someone does not need to pee to get urine out of the system. You could hookup a tube to the bladder filtering out the pee into a bag, and then disposing the bag and replacing it when its full (like how they do it in hospitals). And with out sex there is no reproduction, ending the human race, meaning that we NEED to have sex to essentially "live".

No, I know about catheters, but that's not quite an option is it? An average person does not just think "Oh I don't want to use my 1 little muscle it takes to force pee out of me, I'll just shove this long tube through my urethra even though it's one of the most uncomfortable things to experience". No.
People pee because that's how nature made it, catheters are only there if the natural way of peeing is blocked in some way, because otherwise one would die because as I said, one needs to pee to get pee out.

Having sex does not let a person live any more than abstaining does, because sex provides nothing vital to the body. Pee, on the other hand, is the important removal of toxins in the blood, one that every single person has and needs. Two comments above, "@1614864 (BobWilson):" I explained your human race thing.
People have lived whole lives without sex. People have not lived whole lives without peeing (or using catheters if they need to).

"...sex provides nothing vital to the body." Well that's just not true. There are actually many mental and physical benefits to having a healthy sex life.

Okay, since you're either a bit slow or very lazy, here:

vi·tal Adjective /ˈvītl/
Synonyms: essential
1. Absolutely necessary or important; essential
2. Indispensable to the continuance of life

@Nacklefoodle Okay, since you're either a bit slow or very lazy, here: vi·tal Adjective /ˈvītl/ Synonyms:...

It's always much better when people can have a discussion with no one stooping to insults or name calling.

Anyway, my dictionary came up with

vital |ˈvītl|
adjective
1 absolutely necessary or important; essential : secrecy is of vital importance | it is vital that the system is regularly maintained.
• indispensable to the continuance of life : the vital organs.
2 FULL OF ENERGY; LIVELY : a beautiful, vital girl.
3 archaic fatal : the wound is vital.

I'd say that sex is full of energy and provides something lively to the body.

and I did all that without a single needlessly concescending remark!

Yeah, sex is healthy. That's not the argument here, is it though?

I agree with Nacklefoodle. Sex isn't vital to a human life to create it yes but they have been many people to live their entire lives without having sex, it may have caused them not not be a happier or as livelier as you so put it but it ISNT NEEDED. to be able to rid your body of waste whether it be forcibly or natural is NEEDED!!!!

Look, I really don't want an argument here, but the fact is that you started an argument over semantics. Like Courage Wolf said, the original argument was whether or not sex provided anything VITAL to the body, so ALL definitions of vital need to be taken into account. By one definition of the word, yes, sex DOES bring something vital to the body. Full of energy or lively. Whatever the definition is, you started throwing insults about needlessly just because you didn't want to admit you were wrong in this case and that's just not cool. I've said what I need to say. I don't think I wanna spend any more time on this as I really don't want this to turn into a full blown argument.

I hate debates like this. There's nothing controversial or interesting to debate; you two are just misunderstanding a simple term. It's like, If I'd said "I'm not gay" and you two would argue that I am gay, because I was acting happy. No. I didn't mean that, and you know I didn't mean that. I meant peeing is vital/necessary/needed/can't live without it. I meant that sex is NOT those things. And you two went on to describe how it's healthy, which is irrelevant.

@Nacklefoodle Okay, since you're either a bit slow or very lazy, here: vi·tal Adjective /ˈvītl/ Synonyms:...

My original point was that you were mistaken when you said sex doesn't provide anything vital to the body, not that sex itself is vital. If I drink a glass of orange juice I'm giving my body essential nutrients, am I not? Will I die if I don't drink it? No, because I could just take some vitamins supplements or somehow get them elsewhere. Same with sex. Sure you can abstain but sex reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, provides exercise, and people who orgasm frequently are said to live longer. (Just to name a few.) Now a person is able to receive most of these benefits from many other ways, definitely. But that doesn't change the fact that sex still does provide these things which are vital to your overall body health which, again, was my point. And it's kind of funny how you went off on that tangent about synonyms when you yourself provided them as your dictionary definition in your earlier comment. Just saying. Anyway I hope you understand my point.

But, you do not NEED to pee to get the urine out of the body, there are other ways.

And sex does not help people live longer, but it does keep the existence of humans last longer, which is pretty important. So sex is necessary.

I'm currently in a sex Ed class, and my school is really cool about it. The health teacher said abstinence is great and all, but he knows it's unrealistic for all teens to practice. So he just told us the best forms of birth control, how to put a condom on, and many clinics where teens can get free birth control without out parents knowing.

Maybe if my district taught proper protection alongside abstinence, there wouldn't be so many pregnancies in our school and there wouldn't be two whole pages in the yearbook about it.

We had sex ed in 8th grade and we were taught "abstinence plus" which is basically "don't do it yet, but if you do here's how to be safe." The class wasn't required, and in high school we had child development which wasn't required either, though I really think it should be.

The Catholic school abstinence education classes everyone's talking about aren't any different than my school's, and it's a regular ol' suburban public school.

@their parents need to!!!! That is their job not a school teachers job.

An average parent doesn't have the expertise to teach a good Sex Ed class unless they have a really strong background in medicine or science. Comprehensive sex education usually gives very in-depth explanations of human anatomy, development, and sexuality and covers things like STDs/STIs and their symptoms, fetal development, various hormones, fertility, ect. It's a lot of science, not just common knowledge stuff that any parent would know.
Why shouldn't schools teach it? It makes sense to learn about human sexuality from people with expertise in health and medicine instead of just a relation. Besides, sex isn't something evil and dirty. There is nothing wrong with talking about sex in a mature classroom setting.
I think the parents and the schools should teach sex ed. The more you know about sex, the better your descisions will be.

Obivously, if you study anatomy and biology at an advanced level, you'll learn about the anatomy and biology that is relevant to human sexuality. But if you study Chemistry, Physics, and Environmental Science instead, you might miss out on important info on birth control and STI testing. It hard to make sure everyone takes all those science classes and covers all the important stuff. Even the kids who hate school and take the easiest classes possible need to learn this stuff, even if it means we have to force them to take the class. I see no disadvantage to learning sex ed twice but not learning it at all dangerous.
The way I see it, Sex Ed is one of the most important classes you can take in school. You can get along just fine without taking 10th grade English but if you don't know how to protect yourself against STDs you could get sick and die.

The schools responsibility is to teach the many, not the few. Their job is to provide the students with an education. Abstinence is mostly a religious and moral thing that should have no place in an educational facility.

The Broadway guy was right. Holding your pee for long amounts of time over your life can lead to bladder cancer. And yes, there are some problems that multiple methods can solve. I also said one way is usually best. But this isn't an argument about algebra; abstinence has been proven to work 100% of the time while no other method has. And I also thought Face had some good points. First, yes it is the parents job to educate their children on this subject. Also, these teachers aren't preaching about the morality of premarital sex, they are trying to educate kids about making good choices. Why do you think they teach the benefits of abstinence? They don't do it because they like to ruin your fun, they do it because it's been proven to be the safe and responsible thing. And while a qualified instructor to teach about pregnancy might be nice, it doesn't take a genius to say "If you don't have sex, you won't have a baby!" But again, I'm not trying to argue that sex is bad, but the "hold-it potty training" analogy was flawed.

@WinniethePooh The Broadway guy was right. Holding your pee for long amounts of time over your life can lead to bladder cancer...

You don't have to educate kids about what can easily be explained in one fucking sentence. That isn't any type of education. You need a qualified instructor to fucking teach the actual goddamn symptoms of STDs and how pregnancy works. Sex Education isn't just to where a goddamn condom. If teaching about safe sex should be left to the parent, so should teaching about abstinence. You can't have one fucking thing in there just because you like it better. We learned about safe sex and abstinence at my school. Those are two smaller parts of sex ed. They teach about the diseases and all of the different things that have to do with sex and pregnancy. Then they tell you that abstinence is the only 100% way to prevent these things, but if you do have sex you can use a condom. They also taught about other forms of birth control, like the pill, and said that you should use a condom with it. They also taught about many different side effects from these different methods and about why this might happen.

@WinniethePooh The Broadway guy was right. Holding your pee for long amounts of time over your life can lead to bladder cancer...

Also, don't say you aren't trying to argue about it when you bring up multiple points on the goddamn subject.

@Brettward95 Also, don't say you aren't trying to argue about it when you bring up multiple points on the goddamn subject.

Well someone is a little sensitive.

So what exactly is a qualified instructor? Someone who went to college and got degrees in education and sex ed? That sounds like most health teachers. Or maybe your idea is a porn star? And I can't really tell whether you're arguing that sex ed should or shouldn't be taught at school. In my health class we learned about stds, safe sex, abstinence, the reproductive systems, etc. It isn't just wannabe priests screaming "FORNICATORS GO TO HELL!!!", they actually TEACH. And yes Jacob two-two (obscure movie reference...google it), there are methods of birth control other than abstinence (to see a full response see above comments, thank you). If parents are mad about this being taught, they obviously aren't teaching it themselves which is why someone else should. If the parents are already teaching this like they should, why would they care?

And you started it. I said these two things aren't alike and you said safe sex should be taught, not abstinence, thus sending a simple unrelated comment into a perpetual battle of words about the morality and logistics of sex.

Yes. A health teacher. I am arguing for sex education. Where the fuck did you think that I assumed sex education was wannabe priests? lol I don't know if you're actually reading the comments or not. Maybe you're just trolling. Did you read your own first comment? It can very easily be construed as saying that sex causes cancer. And if you didn't really want to argue about this, you wouldn't be arguing about it. Simple as that.

@Brettward95 Yes. A health teacher. I am arguing for sex education. Where the fuck did you think that I assumed sex education...

Alright friend. And I will give you one thing: you're right I can see how my first comment wasn't clear

self-control is not taught enough in our world today. Sometimes it is just not the time and place to void.

That was the point of my comment. It was a joke, people. Sorry if I offended anyone. I probably could have been a little clearer. Or made a better joke...

Yeah, sorry. I should have paid a little more attention. I probably would have understood it was a joke. lol oops.

"Slut". I'm pretty sure you are the fucking dumbest cunt i've ever seen on the internet. Please refrain from living any longer.

I'll be a bitch if you call someone a slut for wanting sexual education in public school.

Well it seems as if my sarcastic comment that I had meant to point out the stupidity of abstinence-only education by linking sexual urges to the urge to go to the bathroom did not go over as well as I expected.

@Dameequa Maybe I was a little harsh, so I take back my last first comment.

It's ok. I didn't make it clear that I was joking and there are some pretty ignorant people on the internet who would probably say the exact same thing I said and mean it so I can understand the confusion.

@fEMMAnist Are you talking about not having sex or not peeing?

mostly not having sex... you should learn to control your hormones

@thatsjustmii mostly not having sex... you should learn to control your hormones

Lot's of people have sex because they think it's a good thing to do, not because they don't have the discipline to control their hormones.
Besides, comprehensive sex education doesn't teach you to have sex, it teaches you everything you need to know to make safe healthy decisions about sex.

@fEMMAnist Lot's of people have sex because they think it's a good thing to do, not because they don't have the discipline to...

It's mostly because they can't control their hormones especially teenagers... Tell me one time where a teen was like " Oh let's have sex because it is a good thing to do." Ummm, no. It is more like whoa that girl is hot I'd do her -_-

Ludacris taught me how to control those. And I'm sure he's more than willing to teach you, too.

self control isn't the issue, education is. If a student knows how to protect themselves and why they need to do so and they still make the decision to have sex that's their decision. If a student has no idea of anything and just does it they have a better chance of getting pregnant or STDs

I don`t think whether or not your educated matters when you or a minor. Your body is still developing, your brain is not fully formed, and you must deal with so much at once. I don`t think its wise for ``children`` to be having sex just because they have adult bodies.

@thatsjustmii I don`t think whether or not your educated matters when you or a minor. Your body is still developing, your brain...

I didn't say I think minors should have sex, I'm just saying they will. Not everyone, but I guarantee you there is virtually nothing you can do to prevent ALL minors from having sex. The best thing you can do is educate them
