With Valentine’s Day over, and the end of MUSE sex-ed week approaching, we can all go back to only being excited for this week because we get to go home, or at least take a break from school work for a little while.
But we got to thinking, while we were talking to the SHRC, and reading hook-up horror stories, and listening to our podcast about falling in love, about what we weren’t taught in health class about the birds and the bees.
We wanted to know if our sex-ed class ignorance was widespread, so we went to the most reliable source possible: you. And here’s the final product: what sex-ed never taught Queen’s students.
