Abstract Quality sex education for young people is crucial for promoting the development of their sexual knowledge, maturity, self-confidence, communication skills, and well-rounded personalities. However, much sex education appears to be anchored in Blooms' lowest levels of thinking namely Remembering, Comprehension and some in Application. Bloom's top three levels namely Analysis, Evaluation and Creating, exhibit the sorts of thinking that a meaningful adulthood requires, especially in all kinds of human relationships, and in personal management skills. So, helping to elevate young people's thinking skills to these higher levels may assist this development. In order to help young people develop higher level thinking skills in sexuality education, a variety of educational activities using Bloom's Revised Taxonomy are suggested here to guide the teacher and/or parent.
