Middle School Students Had Oral Sex in Class

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

An eighth-grade boy and a seventh-grade girl in an Oxnard, California, middle school allegedly engaged in oral sex during reading class -- and other students watched and even took video and photos of the incident, say parents.

KTLA reports that one parent says she has seen the sex tape, and that the reading teacher at Haydock Intermediate School was aware of the incident but did nothing to stop it. The district says it cannot confirm that any sexual encounter occurred in the classroom. According to the district, the teacher (who has not been identified) has been placed on paid administrative leave, pending the outcome of the investigation.

While certainly shocking, this story unfortunately comes as no surprise: It was the subject of our very first momlogic investigation in 2007, wherein we explored this trend of sex in schools. Our national survey revealed that one in five kids has witnessed sex at school. In our survey of 500 teens between 12 and 17, only 14.8 percent of kids said they'd ever tell their parents if they witnessed sex in school.

blame it on parents…and pop culture.

I really do not know why people are shocked that the kids knew about oral sex. … Most kids do know what it is, they’re not innocent little angels. Unless you’ve managed to completely seperate them from the outside world…?

I do not at all think the problem is too much sex education, or too early sex education. Not at all. It is the; “Abstinence only”-sex educations that are the problems, as they strongly undermine the intelligence of children. They deserve to know WHY they are not supposed to have sex, and even so, why should they listen? They’re always going to think they know better than you, no matter what you say.

Therefore, it is better to teach prevention, as at least then, they won’t go about getting STDs.

I don’t know why these two kids did what they did, but I also do not believe 1/5 kids see sex at school.

Being 15, I can say that nobody has witnessed sex at our school, as far as I know.

Of course, it could just be America, however, that would be funny to me, being European. I do believe we are more open about sexuality here, so if those things occur more in America, I’d probably ask: “Why might that be…?”

2 things:
1. Stupid teens…
2. At least the girl didn’t get pregnant.

I don’t understand why is every one is so uptight about sex. All of you people freaking out on here it is most likely your kids having sex in public places. Kids are going to have sex even if you don’t let them date, have the opposite sex over, or have any privacy, they are just going to do these things when you are not around. The people with the most uptight parents were always the most wild when I was in high school. Really the person who was blaming this on Bill Clinton? Oral sex is all over the media (current media mind you not something that happened when these kids were in the womb), the internet, their friends, etc. Also teens having sex is not for any of the reasons listed in this video they have sex because there bodies are telling them to, and it feels good. Do you have sex “to be cool”or for any other silly reason we make up for kids having sex? No, you have sex cause it is fun.

Can I make a suggestion? I think youve got something good here. But what if you added a couple links to a page that backs up what youre saying? Or maybe you could give us something to look at, something that would connect what youre saying to something tangible? Just a suggestion.
