The Hunger Games is a very intense series featuring loss of innocence, violence, drama and love. Our favorite characters have a lot going on since, you know, they have to fight each other to the death due to a seriously corrupt and oppressive government. It’s not an ideal way to live, but they make it work.
Somehow, in the midst of all the drama, everyone manages to fall in love and raise families. I know that all of the kids go to school, but I feel like that’s not really a focus. So how are they learning anything about sex education? Sure, throw children into an arena to murder each other, but let’s not talk about condoms.
We’ve got a few questions about sex ed in The Hunger Games.
Corruption From The Capitol
Is the Capitol like those schools that have abstinence-only sex ed? Does the Capitol even allow sex ed?
Who Teaches It?
Who's teaching sex ed, really? Do winning tributes from each district teach their own districts? Do they send someone from the Capitol?
Is it accessible to people in less wealthy Districts like District 12? Do you have to get a sponsor to get the pill?
Are you allowed to get it on with people from other Districts? I feel like Finnick didn't care about rules. Is there inter-district sex?
I bet STDs evolved in this post-apocalyptic world. Do people in higher Districts even get sick?
Everyone Is Watching
Um, the Capitol is always watching. Is everyone aware of this?
Hunger Games Role Playing
Do you think that's ever a thing? Like pretending you're in the arena fighting and then you're just all "JK sex"?
If you're pregnant, can you still become a tribute? Is that even legal? Can you sneak into a different District to have your baby to make them be from that District?
Are they available to all Districts? Do condoms in the Capitol have fancier packaging? Do you have to trade for them in District 12?
Age Of Consent
What's the age of consent for sex in this world? Does it differ by District like states?
