Here's how health class goes:
1/3 off the students are literally choking themselves trying not to laugh, 1/3 are answering questions and reading out loud, and another 1/3 are really pale and look like there gonna barf.

Weird but WE Need to KNOW!
It all can be kind of awkward, even with my mom who is very open it can be weird at times talking about stuff. But we are so open and find a way, I think the weirdest is to talk about masturbation and why we do it or want to do it. Its just awkward.
The weirdest ever in school was last year when our teacher showed us actual STD pictures, and it was all actual pictures of guy's 'down there' areas. Our teacher was so great and she was so open but my friends and I still talk about seeing close ups of 10 different naked guys, and some were even shaved, eww! But that is stuff we all need to know about, awkward or not.

Ya we got that a long time ago. 4th grade. Now that I'm in the seventh grade we do life science and our last unit is human reproduction. So we get to talk about sex. The boys in my class make random comments bout it all the time.... A whole 2 weeks with immature boys oh goody! NOT!

I got the talk like 4 months ago now we are learning about sex in class. No one else has had the talk yet so they are all grossed out. Just like I hit puberty earlier so I knew everything. Don't worry its actually not that bad. You will be glad once you get it.Its better than not having it like my friend lost her virginity when she was 12 so I am glad I had the talk early. IM 13 BTW

The 1 week we have that talk and the the "talk (boy)" talk at school I had to have my tonsils taken out. And I would never talk about this with my mom. It's just toooooo weird, she doesn't mind but I do.
Now i dont think we get another one of either of those talks in school.
I know all the basics but i dont know details
