Prepare yourself for tons of terrible '90s sex ed videos. A little NSFW.
We all know the horrors of sex ed class, but despite it causing a classroom full of fifth graders to blush and giggle hysterically, I think we can all agree that sex ed in schools is better than having your parents say the word "uterus". John Oliver agrees and calls out the outdated laws in plenty of states that limit sex ed courses or require abstinence-only programs.
"Human sexuality, unlike calculus, is something that you actually need to know about."
Plenty of people assume that schools are not responsible for sex ed and that kids will just learn that stuff elsewhere. However, as John Oliver points out, it's not just about teaching anatomy or putting a condom on a banana (which Mississippi outlaws, by the way). It's about teaching young people the real decisions regarding sex and the importance of consent. This, he thinks, could reduce the sexual assault cases that plague tons of college campuses.
To make up for what schools lack in sex ed courses, John Oliver enlists some friends (Nick Offerman, Kristin Schaal, Laverne Cox, etc.) to make a real sex ed video. It's informative, funny and most importantly reminds us that "YOU CAN ALWAYS SAY NO."
