The Birds and the Bees: 53 Sites If You Teach Sex Education

Yesterday, my colleague and friend Alex stopped by my office to ask  if  I could post a load of resources for sex education class. I immediately checked my blog to see if I had already done this, (I just can't remember everything, you know...) and after doing a search, noticed the need for these resources. This list will also be added to the PE and Health tab at the top of the page. If you are ever looking for any resources in particular, feel free to comment at the end of the post.
