Does sex education need to include sexual etiquette training?

This post really thoughtfully discusses the kind of problems we have in terms of, for lack of a better term, sex etiquette. The OP even goes as far as suggesting we teach it as part of sex-ed in schools (which I think is a really interesting idea). I have no moral objection to the idea, but I certainly think that, since teenagers are all at extremely different places in terms of sexual maturity, it would be difficult to pick an age at which the students would appropriately receive that information. The process by which one might select students to attend such a class if it weren’t based upon age just sounds unspeakably awkward.

I suppose the adults could try creating an atmosphere of trust and allow an actually open, and honest, dialogue, but that would never happen in America.
