We started a sex series with our middle school and high school groups this week. One word can describe the environment: awkward. We get the nervous chuckles, silly smiles, nervous seat-shifting and the "don't-make-eye-contact" looks. And with an anonymous question box, you never know what you might get.
But the highlight of the week was this exchange with some middle schoolers:
Me: "What have you been taught about sex?"
MS #1: "Masturbation"
MS #2: "Uhh...what's that?"
Yeah...a room full of teenagers and a conversation about sex is the ultimate recipe for "interesting".
