But a visit to the local sex shop didn’t go down too well with their parents.
Pupils at a small private school in Minneapolis, US, were taken to Smitten Kitten as part of a sex ed class.
Kids were able to look at love toys and some even bought condoms.
But Lynn Flod, whose 11 and 13-year-old daughters attended, said parents weren’t informed of the outing.
He said: ‘I just struggled to think that I wasn’t involved in that. It’s just a major breach of trust.’But, Starri Hedges, director of Gaia Democratic School, explained she wanted to provide a safe and welcoming environment for students to learn about human sexual behavior.
She said: ‘What I saw happening on our trip, I thought it was beautiful because kids could talk to these sex educators without any shame, without any fear.’
