ABSTRACT
The article discusses the negligence paid to the sex education in the U.S. In the U.S., where progressive education and psychoanalysis took roots more deeply, sex education has fared no better than anywhere else, and sometimes worse. The reason for concern is that educational neglect and trouble in the sexual area are not isolated phenomenons but have a great deal to do with learning or not learning in other areas as well. Sexual curiosity awakens early in the growing child, and if it is not satisfied but squashed and discouraged, it may produce a more general intellectual inhibition or dulling of interest and set up learning blocks which are not directly related to sexuality. Sex education is not a matter of choice or special interests, but of a more fundamental nature, especially demanding of attention in the U.S. society. The conception of sex education not as an isolated subject, but as an integral part of the total curriculum should make the task easier for the schools and should make educators less vulnerable to outside criticism and attack.
