I think I can safely post a light hearted anecdote here. I teach classical guitar as a second job, and I have a ten year old genius among my students - he's already doing grade 4 and his feel for music is way ahead of mine or anyone else I've known. This evening he sat down and said "we had sex education at school today" - I asked if it went okay and he shuddered and went "Mostly it was fine, but then we had to watch a film and we had to see right up inside a girl's vagina!"
I talked about how interesting I found looking at how the heart works, how the lungs work, etc, and he said "that's great but we've all got them!"
I think in the end I heard myself saying something close to , "oh well, unless you decide to become a doctor you won't have to look inside one again."
