Personally, Id never been given an assignment like that and dont think it would be allowed in my school because its seems a bit innapropriate without any context to what theyre studying in class).

In these days with the Internet in every corner of once life, porn is easy accessible for everybody, including your little sister. And as we know or should know porn is totally different than erotic love, it is a good thing children learn the difference between the two early in life.

I think that your statement is extremely aggressive. It sounds like you are obsessively trying to protect your sister. She has the right to life her own life and do what she thinks is right, I am sure she is intelligent and wise enough to make her own decisions on this.

And the assignment does sound a bit borderline -- although it's a genuinely intellectual question. But if it's for math class, then yeah, the alarm bells should be ringing.

Will you tell us more as you learn more?

Well, like all first year classes, they did the "Epic of Ghilgamesh", but when I look at what I and my peers wrote regarding that book, sex, eroticism, etc. was borderline mentioned. I mean while there is one erotic element in the book, the whole book is not based on that.

That's what ticked off my alarm at first. I asked around after learning that and no person I know be it my age, older or her age had nothing similar to do. The parents know, her mother is indifferent, while dad got angry, but did not go all code red like me. Still I told her if any of them asked her to stay alone with them after class to call me so I can be somewhere nearby ready to respond. I saw and have been through many things when I was her age, things she shouldn't go through, not just in puberty, but in life in general. I am not talking about those little mistakes and bad things that shape you into a stronger person, but things which can scar you for life. I just don't want her to go through that. I am currently just on the lookout. If something happens to her, I will be first to respond. I don't see myself as overprotective, I just let her do her things and am there to be relied upon when needed.
