Sexual health and its education are a very important part of everyone's life. Many people say that this is one of the most important aspects of life, so it should be provided to children at an early age and that’s true age-based sex education is important and must be given for a healthy life.
One of the most misunderstood aspects of sex education is that it just teaches people how to have sex. It tells them what to do with their bodies and how to take care of their sexual organs. It is not, and cannot be, a simple matter of teaching people about sex, but rather about educating people about our sexuality.
Sex education should be an active process — taking place in the classroom, society at large, and even within a couple’s bedroom. There are several reasons for this. The first is that it gives us an opportunity to discuss issues such as sexuality in a way that isn’t judgmental or demeaning. It can also help us to accept others who are different from ourselves. Secondly, we have the chance to understand what others go through because it isn’t all about having “one right answer.” Everyone has his/her own set of experiences and needs which must be taken into account when designing any form of sexual education that assumes knowledge and experience only common sense can provide help around these issues.
When the subject of sex education is discussed, many people are concerned about the type and quantity of education that should be provided to young children. Education on this issue typically focuses primarily on the positive aspects of sex, such as physical arousal and orgasm. While these factors are very important in their own right, they are not the primary objectives of sex education programs. The primary goal of most sex education programs is to teach children about healthy sexual practices and how to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STI).
The debate over whether to provide comprehensive sexual health education for young children has been ongoing since then. Many organizations have endorsed comprehensive sex education with age-specific content that explores all aspects of sexual health including reproduction; prevention; safe-sex practices; contraception; sexual relationships with multiple partners; sexually transmitted infections (STIs);
gender identity issues; birth control methods, condoms, sterilization methods;
anatomy/physiology/anatomy-based learning materials that address each person’s anatomy and physiology; information about homosexuality/bisexuality/transgenderism/queer culture; gender identity issues for adults as well as teens and adults; information about human relations based on different cultural backgrounds including race, ethnicity, religion or lack thereof; laws related to homosexuality or bisexuality or transgenderism or whatever other personal preference one may have.
Sex educators believe that providing age-specific information allows teachers to retain more control over teaching topics while avoiding potentially confusing narratives or topics that make students feel uncomfortable. They also believe that age-appropriate conversations between adults can help students learn more about their own bodies. Some educators also feel that empowering youth with age-appropriate information can help them develop healthier relationships with their bodies through healthy communication with others around them—not just within close personal relationships but also romantic partners or friends.
Age-based sex education is a fine idea. There are many reasons why people should have regular sex education. Age-based sex education is helpful in developing sexual maturity and having a healthy sexual life./p>
One of the biggest advantages of age-based sex education is that it helps one know their body better. One’s body responds to certain elements differently than others. Having knowledge about his/her body will allow one to avoid some health risks.
The other advantage of age-based sex education is:
Kids: Get’s to learn as per their age what they must understand while growing up
Teenagers: They smoothly passes this most confusing age which brings a lot of first time experience around human sexuality like periods, body changes, sexual feelings, STI’s, etc
Adults: With the right knowledge and skillset an adult can have a safe, fulfilling and healthy sexual life, which is a very important aspect.
Sex education is not a modern concept in India, we have had it for ages, haven’t you heard of Kamasutra? Though ancient Kamasutra is way more than just sex, yes it surely helps one with amazing knowledge on human sexuality to live a healthy and fulfilling life but one thing is clear that sexuality was not treated as taboo subject at that time also.
Sex education helps us understand ourselves better, helps us understand each other better, and helps us all live more happily ever after.

Sex education entails more than just imparting facts on genital-centered sex; it also entails instilling correct ideals, balanced attitudes, and solid views. It is critical that we raise children in mature and responsible ways so that they will become adults who will use their sexuality.
It is our obligation to keep the next generation informed so that the right scientific information can contribute to the development of healthy views toward sex, high standards of conduct, responsible behavior, and wholesome personalities.
Why is it necessary to formally educate children, adolescents, and adults about human sexuality? Formal sex education is designed to achieve specific goals:
