In South Australia, sex education has been controversial since its inception. The Australasian White Cross league and the Family Planning Association of South Australia were the pioneers of sex education in South Australia. The framing of a national framework and the implementation of the SHARE (Sexual Health and Relationships Education) project in recent years have contributed to the field of sex education; however, not without controversies. This study traces the development and the major incidents in the history of sex education in South Australia to date.
