ONTARIO, Calif.Sept. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — A recent survey conducted by CalExotics, one of the largest adult novelty retailers in the U.S., reveals that sex education has significantly lagged over the past several decades, leaving adults today uneducated and misinformed. Without a comprehensive curriculum, adults may feel unprepared to meet the changing attitudes around sex and sexual identity, and the ever-evolving spectrum of tolerance and acceptance. According to the survey, 79 percent of adults never formally learned about consent and 75 percent never learned about sexual harassment, which are two issues that demand attention given today’s cultural and political climate.

According to the 426-person survey, respondents between 18 and 29 years old and those between 45 and 60 revealed their most recent sex education class focused on the same topics, despite the multi-decade gap: abstinence, pregnancy, reproduction, sexually transmitted diseases, and contraception.

“That’s three generations of stalled learnings,” said Dr. Jill McDevitt, resident sexologist for CalExotics. “Because the topics around sex are always developing, sexuality is a subject we need to be addressing in medically accurate and culturally appropriate ways not just in middle and high school, but also throughout adulthood.”
