After learning the sorry state of sex education in America, John Oliver and his friends redefined the curriculum on “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” on Sunday.

Sex education is only mandated in 22 states, with only 13 states requiring the curriculum to be medically accurate, according to Oliver’s research.

“You wouldn’t accept a history class not being historically accurate,” Oliver said. “Prince started the American Revolution in 1984 and his Purple Rain lasts until the present day.”

This wouldn’t stand, so Oliver was joined by Lavrene Cox, Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman, Kristen Schaal and many others to give a non-judgmental, medically accurate education video on sex.
