Besides physics, sex ed is probably the most painful class you'll ever take. Talking about pregnancy, condoms, and tampons is awkward enough when you're doing it with your friendsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦but when you're doing it with your teacher? ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s basically asking for embarrassmentÃ¢â‚¬”and Liam Hemsworth had it worse than the average sexual education student, as he shared recently in an interview on Live with Kelly and Michael:
"We had this one time where we were given out cards of different sexually transmitted infections and you had to stand up and talk about the card, and she picked me out of the whole room. It was like, 'Well, I have chlamydia Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ thanks for this, Mom. Good class.'"
Our condolences, Liam. But if it makes you feel any better, WomenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Health readers also have some pretty cringe-worthy stories of their own. Check out these funnyÃ¢â‚¬”if mortifyingÃ¢â‚¬”sex ed nightmares:
"Everyone had the same sex ed teacher in my high school. One day, he had all of his classes practice putting a condom on a bananaÃ¢â‚¬”but he used the same banana each time. When my class showed up, the fruit was turned to complete mush! We wanted to laugh at the situation, but he threatened us with detention if any of us started cracking up."
Say My Name
"There was a boy in my class whose last name was 'Hymen'Ã¢â‚¬”no joke. Our teacher excused him during the entire vagina portion of the course because, obviously, we had to talk about hymensÃ¢â‚¬”and he felt super embarrassed every time the subject came up. It didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t help that people joked about it constantly."
Blow and Tell
"My sex ed teacherÃ¢â‚¬”who doubled as the gym teacherÃ¢â‚¬”told us never to believe a guy when he says a condom won't fit. To demonstrate, she pulled a condom around her head and over her nose so that she could blow it up like a balloon with her nostrils. Now I know that condoms can fit anyone."
"Our sex ed class was separated into boys and girls so that we were taught by a teacher of the same gender as us. Mine cast a diagram of the female anatomy on a projector to show each individual part of the vagina. As she pointed to the clitoris, she described it as 'A pea-shaped buttonÃ¢â‚¬”and when someone touches it, you go, "WAZAM!"'"
