    Now this seems it's US oriented but I'll answer anyway.

    At what point in your educational process (what grade) were you taught sex ed?
    A: 7:th grade



    Were you taught abstinence only education or safe sex education?
    A:
    Abstinence was never even mentioned as a viable sexual protection.



    At what point in the educational process (what grade) do you think sex ed is appropriate to be taught?
    A:
    When or before kids hit puberty and start having sex. Age 12-14 perhaps? That would be 6:th to 8:th grade.


    Did your class request that you signed a "purity pledge"? Did you sign it?
    A:
    No, that is totally alien to Swedish kids.



    Was your class taught by an existing member of the faculty or by someone who was meant to teach sexual education to minors?
    A:
    Existing member, it was our "class teacher". Each class had a teacher who had the main responsibilty for that class.


    Did your Parents have to sign a permission slip for you to be taught sex ed in school?
    A:
    No. The sexual education was part of the biology class and mandatory for everyone.


    Did your Parents ever have “the talk” with you? Did it consist of waiting till marriage or safe sex practices?
    A:
    No, my parents have never talked to me about sex.


    Did you feel like you could openly talk to your parents about your sexual questions?
    A:
    No and I never will talk with them about my sexuality.


    In school were you segregated by gender during sex ed class? (Meaning, were the boys and girls in two separate classes?) Do you feel they should be segregated by sex? Why?
    A:
    No. Again that is alien to Swedish classes. Hell, it might even be illegal to separate by gender.


    Was the topic of abortion and the mental and physical consequences discussed in your sex ed class?
    A:
    I don't remember. I think abortion was discussed but not the mental consequenses for sure.


    Was the proper use of condoms discussed?
    A:
    Yes.


    During the discussion of STD’s and Infections, were images of said diseases and infections used to show the physical effects?
    A:
    I believe so although I'm not sure.


    Do you feel that safe sex education promotes teens becoming sexually active?
    A:
    No, teens become sexually active no matter what you do.




    THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS DON’T HAVE TO BE ANSWERED BUT IF YOU’RE COMFORTABLE, PLEASE DO.


    At what age did you become sexually active?
    A:
    The question is kinda vague but I'll assume you mean when I first started to explore my own sexuality. Age 12 or maybe 13 I believe.


    Did you use protection?
    A:
    When I first had sex with a girl, yes I used a condom.

    A: 5th and 6th grade.

    A: Both.


    A: Looking back, maybe 5th was a little early but then again we *did* have one girl who was starting to grow boobs in class (and they only mature earlier these days) so maybe 5th wouldn't be so bad. Honestly I think 6th grade would be fine.

    A: Nope and nope.


    A: In 5th grade, both. We had one male teacher and one female teacher share talking about it, and they had a lady who was specifically for teaching sex ed come in to teach about condoms and how to put them on and the risks of STDs, etc.

    A: Yes.


    A: Nope.
    A: Nope.

    A: No, we all stayed in class together. I honestly think that keeping the class together is good. Sex is a two way thing, might as well learn about it together too. If there is an issue of embarrassment, they could always make sure there are both male and female instructors/teachers available to handle questions in private if need be, or perhaps they could provide both a co-ed and segregated QA session.

    A: Not that I can recall.


    A: Yes.


    A: I believe so, but I can't be 100% sure.

    A: No. Correlation does not imply causation.

    A: 14.

    A: Yes.

    To verify, "sexually active" means when did you first insert your penis into a vagina.

    Thanks so far for the answers guys and gal. :) It's really helpful to see into different generations and what/how teaching is involved and more importantly, how our parents are involved in our sexual development.

    At what point in your educational process (what grade) were you taught sex ed?
    A: formally in sixth grade I think, back then in Norway that was twelve years of age. However, our main teacher told us the basics of "how it works" at least two years prior to this



    Were you taught abstinence only education or safe sex education?
    A:Safe sex. Waiting was also recommended




    At what point in the educational process (what grade) do you think sex ed is appropriate to be taught?
    A: 5th or 6th was fine. Don't wit until the kids have gone too far into puberty (or seen too much porn)



    Did your class request that you signed a "purity pledge"? Did you sign it?
    A: no




    Was your class taught by an existing member of the faculty or by someone who was meant to teach sexual education to minors?
    A: both



    Did your Parents have to sign a permission slip for you to be taught sex ed in school?
    A: I don't think so



    Did your Parents ever have “the talk” with you? Did it consist of waiting till marriage or safe sex practices?
    A: I asked, they answered with no BS. This was before any mention of sex in school. I can't remember anything about marriage or safe sex actually



    Did you feel like you could openly talk to your parents about your sexual questions?
    A: They were slightly embarrassed, but still quite open about it



    In school were you segregated by gender during sex ed class? (Meaning, were the boys and girls in two separate classes?) Do you feel they should be segregated by sex? Why?
    A: Yes, we were given slightly different versions of the sex ed class. This was one of the few times when the teachers segregated by sex. No, I don't think this was strictly necessary, but I suppose they thought it was a way to avoid some of the embarrassment



    Was the topic of abortion and the mental and physical consequences discussed in your sex ed class?
    A: I think so. Not sure



    Was the proper use of condoms discussed?
    A: yes



    During the discussion of STD’s and Infections, were images of said diseases and infections used to show the physical effects?
    A: no



    Do you feel that safe sex education promotes teens becoming sexually active?
    A: probably not. We were given a lot of reminders that it's good to wait until the time is right, and boys were specifically told not to be too pushy.





    THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS DON’T HAVE TO BE ANSWERED BUT IF YOU’RE COMFORTABLE, PLEASE DO.


    At what age did you become sexually active?

    Did you use protection?

    At what point in your educational process (what grade) were you taught sex ed?
    A: I was taught on 2 separate occasions: 4th grade and 9th grade(this was just in my health class, which could be taken at any time between 9th-12th. I just decided to get it out of the way early).



    Were you taught abstinence only education or safe sex education?
    A: Abstinence only in elementary school, but the proper usage of condoms was discussed in high school.


    At what point in the educational process (what grade) do you think sex ed is appropriate to be taught?
    A: 5th-6th grade.



    Did your class request that you signed a "purity pledge"? Did you sign it?
    A: Nope, I wasn't requested to at any time.




    Was your class taught by an existing member of the faculty or by someone who was meant to teach sexual education to minors?
    A: Someone who was meant to teach sex ed to minors. In high school, our health teacher would go over some of it to us in class as well.



    Did your Parents have to sign a permission slip for you to be taught sex ed in school?
    A: Yes, both times.



    Did your Parents ever have “the talk” with you? Did it consist of waiting till marriage or safe sex practices?
    A: I don't remember if I ever had the talk, and I don't remember how I first learned about sexual intercourse. I do know that my mom would prefer for me to wait until marriage.



    Did you feel like you could openly talk to your parents about your sexual questions?
    A: I can talk to my mom about it if I want to, but I usually don't have any. Sex was something that was never on my mind until around when I turned 16.



    In school were you segregated by gender during sex ed class? (Meaning, were the boys and girls in two separate classes?) Do you feel they should be segregated by sex? Why?
    A: Yes, on both occasions. I don't feel they should be separated by gender. If a guy and a girl are going to have sex, I feel they should understand each other's bodies.



    Was the topic of abortion and the mental and physical consequences discussed in your sex ed class?
    A: Not in the slightest.



    Was the proper use of condoms discussed?
    A: Yes.



    During the discussion of STD’s and Infections, were images of said diseases and infections used to show the physical effects?
    A: Yes.



    Do you feel that safe sex education promotes teens becoming sexually active?
    A: No. If kids want to have sex, they'll have sex. If anything, abstinence-only courses might push kids to want to have sex more, since all they do is tell them that sex is bad, don't do it. Since I think kids will have sex if they want it anyway, they might as well be prepared and knowledgeable.





    THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS DON’T HAVE TO BE ANSWERED BUT IF YOU’RE COMFORTABLE, PLEASE DO.


    At what age did you become sexually active?
    A: I'm still a virgin.



    Did you use protection?
    A: When I do have sex, I will use it.

    At what point in your educational process (what grade) were you taught sex ed?
    A:

    I was in a public school in a county of Maryland that is split politically between liberal and conservative. Everything is pulled in two directions, including sex education. I think, though, that the sex education I got was ok. Sometimes it seemed like they talked about it constantly, LOL, but really I think it was ages 8, 13, and 15.


    Were you taught abstinence only education or safe sex education?
    A:

    Definitely not absitence only. Quite a lot about safe sex. Really it was about being mature and making responsible decisions and making informed decisions. Waiting was mainly waiting until you felt you were ready, and so on.

    At what point in the educational process (what grade) do you think sex ed is appropriate to be taught?
    A:
    I do think 8 was too young for whatever it was they taught us back then. At 13, we wanted to know what sex was like, and I think it's ok to tell students about it at that age. At 15, we were really ready for the safe sex and decision making part.


    Did your class request that you signed a "purity pledge"? Did you sign it?
    A:

    No. We would have destroyed whoever had the unforunate task of trying to get us to sign it by ridicule alone.


    Was your class taught by an existing member of the faculty or by someone who was meant to teach sexual education to minors?
    A:

    Existing members. Science teacher at 13, P.E. teacher at 15.

    Did your Parents have to sign a permission slip for you to be taught sex ed in school?
    A:

    Yes. And some parents didn't sign it.


    Did your Parents ever have “the talk” with you? Did it consist of waiting till marriage or safe sex practices?
    A:

    When I was very little, my parents sat me down and gave me a scientific talk about sex. I felt very mature being told about it, but I'm not sure I actually understood it. No talks since then, though my parents checked out the curriculum and made sure they were satisfied that it covered what they wanted me to know. My mother sometimes hints about waiting until marriage. My parents still think I'm a virgin.


    Did you feel like you could openly talk to your parents about your sexual questions?
    A:

    Yes, I've felt that I could, though it doesn't come up very much.


    In school were you segregated by gender during sex ed class? (Meaning, were the boys and girls in two separate classes?) Do you feel they should be segregated by sex? Why?
    A:

    Yes, we were separated. I think it was a good idea. No embarrassment and nudging and snickering. But after class we would get together anyway and compare what we were told. Even though it was comfortable in the separate classes, it was also important to know what the other side was being told. So it's a dilemma.


    Was the topic of abortion and the mental and physical consequences discussed in your sex ed class?
    A:

    I can't remember abortion being mentioned. I think that was for political reasons.

    Was the proper use of condoms discussed?
    A:

    Discussed in the age 15 class, but no visuals.


    During the discussion of STD’s and Infections, were images of said diseases and infections used to show the physical effects?
    A:

    In the age 13 class.


    Do you feel that safe sex education promotes teens becoming sexually active?
    A:

    Actually, it helped some students decide to wait longer than they thought they might. It made it a serious thing that you had to think about before you just did it. Other students, including me, felt empowered to be safe about what we were going to do anyway. It didn't make us want sex. But I think it made us confident that we could now go ahead and do it maturely and safely.


    THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS DON’T HAVE TO BE ANSWERED BUT IF YOU’RE COMFORTABLE, PLEASE DO.


    At what age did you become sexually active?
    A:

    16

    Did you use protection?
    A:

    Yes, and it was a direct result of the class at age 15. I know myself pretty well, LOL, and I think I wouldn't have been as smart about it without the class.

    Here is an aussie point of view (for what it's worth) :)

    Grade 6 in primary school then again in first year of high school (year 7)

    Were you taught abstinence only education or safe sex education?
    A:
    Both

    At what point in the educational process (what grade) do you think sex ed is appropriate to be taught?
    A:
    I think that the last year of primary school is appropriate - bodies and thoughts are changing from childshood into puberty/adolesence

    Did your class request that you signed a "purity pledge"? Did you sign it?
    A:
    Not something we had at school

    Was your class taught by an existing member of the faculty or by someone who was meant to teach sexual education to minors?
    A:
    Both by existing teachers.

    Did your Parents have to sign a permission slip for you to be taught sex ed in school?

    Did you feel like you could openly talk to your parents about your sexual questions?
    A:
    I know I could if I needed to but I never have

    In school were you segregated by gender during sex ed class? (Meaning, were the boys and girls in two separate classes?) Do you feel they should be segregated by sex? Why?
    A:
    We were not separated.
    I think that separating kids initially would be a good idea as it may allow for more open and frank discussions specific to the gender.

    Was the topic of abortion and the mental and physical consequences discussed in your sex ed class?
    A:
    not that I recall - was more about the physical bodily changes and reactions.

    Was the proper use of condoms discussed?
    A:
    yes - with practical demonstrations on a carrot or banana - all students participated.

    During the discussion of STD’s and Infections, were images of said diseases and infections used to show the physical effects?
    A:
    Yes - we had an entire booklet dedicated to STD's/STI's with symptoms, pictures and treatments.

    Do you feel that safe sex education promotes teens becoming sexually active?
    A:
    No.

    THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS DON’T HAVE TO BE ANSWERED BUT IF YOU’RE COMFORTABLE, PLEASE DO.

    At what age did you become sexually active?

    Did you use protection?
    A:

    Great questions Mitts. I think another important part of sexuality that should be mentioned is being gay and being ok with it. I was taught this in HS and we had to watch a few videos about it. Its true though, its important to be able to discuss that it is ok especially in HS where kids (mainly men) will be confused about life and also will get harassed by that fact by others.

    At what point in your educational process (what grade) were you taught sex ed?
    A: 6th grade



    Were you taught abstinence only education or safe sex education?
    A: safe sex ed with an emphasis on abstinence




    At what point in the educational process (what grade) do you think sex ed is appropriate to be taught?
    A: 5th or 6th grade. The earlier the better for girls IMO.



    Did your class request that you signed a "purity pledge"? Did you sign it?
    A: No and no




    Was your class taught by an existing member of the faculty or by someone who was meant to teach sexual education to minors?
    A: A very unqualified member of the faculty.



    Did your Parents have to sign a permission slip for you to be taught sex ed in school?
    A: Yes. Parents where invited to audit the classes after school.



    Did your Parents ever have “the talk” with you? Did it consist of waiting till marriage or safe sex practices?
    A: I got the talk from both parents. My mother pushed waiting but tried to educate me on safe sex practices. My father told me he knew asking me to wait was like asking me to stop breathing. Then he said to remember " remember, a roll in the hay can be the kiss of death. " I listened to my Fathers advice the most. ( except when he told me to "stay single and teach my kids the same" )



    Did you feel like you could openly talk to your parents about your sexual questions?
    A: Yes but never really did.



    In school were you segregated by gender during sex ed class? (Meaning, were the boys and girls in two separate classes?) Do you feel they should be segregated by sex? Why?
    A: We where separated. Yes, kids should be separated initially. I believe most girls are more mature at younger ages and are more likely to understand the importance of the education. I believe they are better served alone before being combined with the boys.



    Was the topic of abortion and the mental and physical consequences discussed in your sex ed class?
    A: Never.



    Was the proper use of condoms discussed?
    A:Yes



    During the discussion of STD’s and Infections, were images of said diseases and infections used to show the physical effects?
    A:Yes.



    Do you feel that safe sex education promotes teens becoming sexually active?
    A: Yes, a little.

    A: Curious enough to dabble at 13 - 14 but truly active at 15.



    Did you use protection?
    A:Yes
