Three Sex Education Lessons From The Teen Pep Stories

One of the oft-repeated comments by characters in my novel, The Sex Ed Chronicles is that, in the absence of sex education, children learn about sex from their friends. However, the novel was based in 1980, before New Jersey high schools started to involve students in peer counseling.

On Valentines Day 2008, I read about a mini-controversy involving peer counseling on a New Jersey radio news Web site. The news coverage came out of one New Jersey high school: Clearview Regional High School in Harrison Township in the southern part of the state. There, parents object to peer counselors, high school juniors and seniors, counseling freshmen on a variety of topics related to sex education. The counseling model comes from a program called Teen Pep. Designed by the Princeton Center for Leadership Training (not affiliated with Princeton University), Teen Pep has been implemented in over 50 Garden State high schools for the past eight years. Therefore, Teen Pep is not a new program and school districts have had time to investigate its merits-only now, one school has made the news.

Teen Pep trains not only students, but also faculty advisors, to work one-to-one, but also as a team in various counseling situations. Schools contracting for Teen Pep work with the Princeton Center for a minimum of two years and there are supervisory field visits by qualified professionals to help ensure the program is running smoothly. A school that engages in Teen Pep makes a considerable intellectual investment, as well as a financial investment, to make it work. Part of this investment is to explain this program to parents.

Which takes me to lesson number one: if you are not ready to take these investments seriously, don’t make them.

As I read about the incident at Clearview High, it became clear to me that the fault is not with the program, but with the school administration. It would have been easier for them to consult parents and clergy from the get-go, as they are supposed to do. I realize that teachers have objected to this-they did back in 1980 as well-but sex education is a subject where parents and clergy believe they have important opinions and knowledge.

I found it interesting to read that an advisory board would be formed after parents objected to individual aspects of the program. That should have been in place from day one.

Which takes me to lesson number two: after consulting parents, decide which topics students are qualified to discuss with peers.

Parental objections at Clearview stemmed from the idea that “kids were teaching kids to have sex. But there had to be clear differences between the topics teen peer counselors were allowed to teach, and those that had to be covered by a qualified sex education teacher-but they didn’t make it in the press. Parents deserved to know, if they asked before school started. I realize that pro-abstinence organizations also use young speakers; their programs should be subject to the same parental review as the peer-counseling program.

Then I get to lesson number three: make sure you have qualified teachers.

The federal No Child Left Behind Act emphasizes a need for qualified teachers, meaning that a teacher should be certified in the subject they teach. That applies as much to sex education as any other subject. In the example of Clearview High, the program leader was an English teacher. When I reached family life education, I learned that sex education instructors were most likely to come from health education, home economics or social studies as well as nursing. I would also assume that guidance counselors could become qualified sex educators; they handle personal student issues as part of their job description.

It appears Teen Pep is working in most schools; only one school is in the news complaining, but those involved with this program should consider offering an alternative: to use degree candidates in counseling and education to counsel students.

This would not be peer counseling, but it would appease parents who worry about kids teaching kids about sex. It would also help provide professional development for sex educators.

The Parent’s Responsibility in Sex Education

Parents ought to be the first source of sex education for their children. Don’t think that because children can learn about human sexuality in school, your responsibility to teach them about sex has been removed. Especially now that there is confusion as to how to teach human sexuality in school, the parents must be ready to assume the role to educate their children in everything they need to know to understand their sexuality.

Who’s better to teach about morality and the ramification of sex and sexuality to your children than you their parents? Often times, the school only teaches about the anatomy of human sexuality and the issue of morality and the taboos related to sex are often placed on the sidelines. This is where you should come in – teach your children their moral obligation when it comes to sex.

Sex education does not involve only teaching the children about the anatomy of the human reproductive organ. It’s much more than that. Sex education also involves teaching the children their moral obligation towards the opposite sex. Even more so for teenagers, you need to teach them their moral obligation towards their boyfriends or their girlfriends for that matter.

More so if your teenagers are already sexually active. You have an obligation to open their eyes about the possible ramification of their action. Your son could get a girl pregnant or your daughter can become pregnant if they are practicing sex at a very young age. They should understand the implications of their actions.

Another very important aspect of sex education you should teach your children is the issue on sexually transmitted diseases. If they are already sexually active, they must understand that they can contract disease by sleeping around with many partners, or even from their very first sexual encounter

Sex education is always a difficult topic to discuss with your children at home. But this is yet another role of parents that they cannot escape from.

Watching Adult Sex Videos Together – Movies Make Magic

Although they still have a stigma for many people, watching adult sex videos with your spouse can be a really great way to improve your marriage sex. Available in as many different varieties as there are types of people in the world, you can watch everything from very basic, “soft porn” as it is called to more graphic and experimental types of adult films. Sensual and erotic imagery is both visually and mentally arousing and may even plant an idea or two in your minds for what you would like to try with one another. Rather than being something that only single men watch in the dark, by themselves, while they masturbate, adult films are actually a really effective type of foreplay for many married couples.

Many couples may secretly want to watch an adult film together, but are hesitant because they are afraid to suggest it to their mate. For some women, there is a fear that their husband will find the women on film more attractive than they find them. For some men, there is concern that their wives may be turned off or find fault with their arousal. The reality is that watching adult films together can be a real bonding experience. It may take several tries to find a particular genre of adult film that works for you both, but in most cases, just the simple act of being “naughty” and watching other people getting physical is enough to start something fun for the married couple watching.

If you and your spouse have decided to watch an adult sex video together, then you should discuss what kinds of films are “OK” and which ones are “off limits”. For instance, your spouse may be uncomfortable watching a film that depicts more than one partner at a time. The object of watching an adult sex video together is to get one another turned on, not turned off, so be sensitive to one another’s preferences. One of the benefits of watching a sex video together is that you may get ideas for positions to try out. Also, having the noise in the background may also help lower your spouse’s inhibitions when it comes to expressing their pleasure vocally.

If you are looking for an easy way to improve your marriage sex life, watching adult sex videos together is a great way to start. Sit back, relax, pop in a video and let nature take its course. You may find that you are having the hottest sex of your marriage, in no time flat!

Sex Videos – How to Keep it Hot in the Bedroom So You Can Rest Better

If you have ever had a bout of insomnia, did you consider sex videos as a remedy? No? Why not? Sex is considered one of the best tools to battle insomnia. It’s also considered one of the most fun antidotes! Sex videos can play a major role in fighting sleeplessness by exciting your libido and allowing you to enjoy some pleasurable and satisfying sex just before slipping into a restful and restorative sleep cycle. Sex videos are great for spicing up your sex life, so they really can serve a dual purpose. Fun and sleep, they sound like a pretty good pair, right?

Sleeplessness can be dangerous to your health both physically and mentally and using sex videos to crank up your experience in the sack can really help reduce harmful effects due to insomnia. Besides the obvious negative effects like poor performance at work or school, relationship issues due to surliness, there are some major diseases that can be brought on by lack of sleep. Having sex to help stave off these illnesses sounds like a pretty good solution. The key is the release, or orgasm. That is what brings the body and mind back into a restful and satisfied state, ready to fall asleep.

So, keeping it hot in the bed room becomes important, and watching a sex video or two before bed can really help keep things interesting. It may seem counter intuitive to get excited before going to bed. That’s true if you are exciting your brain through exercise or other stimuli before bed. Sex is the big exception. Even though you are building up endorphins that excite the brain, you eventually release through orgasm, and the brain decompresses. Not so with exercise or say, watching a scary movie. Those activities excite the brain with no release and keep the brain working long after the stimulus is gone. That’s what keeps you up looking at the clock every two minutes.

Great excuse for watching sex videos isn’t it? But it truly is a legitimate one. There are lots of studies that prove conclusively sex is good for sleep and good sex is even better. Sleep is so important for your mental health and physical health, so is sex, and here you have a solution for both problems, sex videos. The best thing about sex videos, you don’t necessarily need a partner to get the job done. Get the drift! Wink! Wink!

How to Market Your Tube Videos

There are two key points of this article; how you can market your YouTube videos and why? We will start with how you can market your videos which are already present on YouTube. Suppose you have made a video related to a specific niche and you have it uploaded and ready for an audience on YouTube. Now you want that audience to arrive and be as big as possible.

Let me assure you that the very first step that you have taken is absolutely wise which is to select YouTube as the home for your video efforts. You might have known that YouTube has good traffic to advertise your video. But it’s again a matter of being found. Therefore on a personal level you may advertise your video by telling your friends, family and colleagues about it. They may search for the title and may even watch it, that is unless you have used this strategy far too often before. Therefore swap it about, talk to them, email them, text them or even send them an image from the video. Just do not harass them or you will become a lonely and moody film producer.

There is another and safer way to advertise your business videos, which is by adding their links to any blog you may own. Just make sure your video is related to that blog. It is a common observation that images and videos are more attractive than text so whoever reaches your blog and begins to read your post will see your video for sure. YouTube allows you to add a few html codes in any blog or post online. Those codes will enable you or any other Internet user to post a video online. This is a common practice in the world of Internet blogging, to add the code for a related YouTube video in the post. If the correct video is selected it can enhance the post, you can of course offer this video to other blog owners whose sites are related to the theme of your video, they will be more than willing to add these links under their blogs as it adds value to their post.

A third way to market your YouTube videos is through message boards. There exists a vast array of message boards related to almost every topic on the Internet. Thus all you have to do is search for a message board which is related to your video title, then post the link there. There are only a few websites/boards which do not allow such links in their posts but most of them have no such issues. Placing these links in your signatures is the best way to do this as it does not appear too pushy and allows you to add value to the site in the comments box. As your comments get reviews from members; they may see your video and you could get feedback from visitors about how to improve your work.

Now comes the part why you should market your videos. Well, you must have got some idea that marketing is to achieve popularity. The more your products or business are being viewed by people, the more your profile rises and thus many will contact you and your business. YouTube itself will attract many viewers to your website through your videos and you are now aware of some free methods to advertise your videos. So if you think that you are not getting enough viewers on YouTube, spread the link on message boards and blogs all over the web and get that traffic that you deserve.
