Open Features: Don’t Tell The Boys

Joseph Meakin tells of his convoluted sex education.

Sex education in the 1950’s was a convoluted affair. Especially in a suburban catholic mixed gender secondary modern school. This is how it was conducted.

One day the Nuns came to the school and took the girls on one side to teach them the facts of life.

After the lecture the girls were told “whatever you do don’t tell the boys”.

But of course the girls did tell the boys and that is how we got our sex education, second hand from Nuns!
