ABSTRACT
The author discusses the question of sex in childhood and sex education. He says he agrees with Doctor Bernard Sachs who stated that the alleged over-sexed age is over-sexed chiefly in the amount of talk about it. He argues that several advocates of classroom sex instruction are ignorant of human nature. He criticizes a sex instruction text which only arouses the curiosity of children.
