Sex Education in 1900, 1940, and 1980: An Historical Sketch.
Penland, Lynn R.
Journal of School Health, v51 n4 p305-309 Apr 1981
Sex education in the early 1900s was antisex in nature, discouraging sexual behavior and thoughts. The 1940s brought a moralistic view of sexuality as a part of family life. Sex education in the 1980s reflects the continuation of the sexual revolution and the idea that sex is healthy and normal. (JN)
