Why is it important to have sex education curriculum?

In India, it is seen as taboo to talk about sex openly

Like it or not, most of us have been fascinated just by the word "sex" even if we do not know the real meaning behind it.
In India, it is seen as taboo to talk about sex openly and that is why most people don't enquire about it even if they wish to educate themselves properly on the subject.
It doesn't matter where we come from or what type of society we live in because a day will come when at a certain age, the need to know anything and everything about sex will arise.
That is why a proper curriculum on sex education is a need of the hour.
It may be cringe-worthy in the beginning, but we are beings of different genders and each gender plays a role in satisfying their opposite gender.
Therefore, just as different genders need one another, having a proper education on sex education is not just a requirement but a necessity.
When the teachers can imbibe a sense of teaching and learning mindset in the minds of the students, anything can be taught and learned.
Also, the best place to learn about sex in schools and colleges since if we are taught about sex education at home, it will be of utmost discomfort and that is why schools and colleges are the perfect places to learn about sex education.

When the teachers can imbibe a sense of teaching and learning mindset in the minds of the students, anything can be taught and learned.
It is not only about sex education, but other subjects such as diseases, war, death, etc. which all sound unpleasant at first.
But with the right environment and the right mindset, we can all imbibe proper knowledge which will be of great help in the future and in the days to follow.
It can also be very perilous since many young children think that they know a lot about sex without having proper education on it.
And since young minds are vulnerable to excitement when it comes to knowing about new things such as sex education, the difficulty in teaching the students about it is zero to none.
