Student or Learner
I have read news and I have found a strange sentence: The Chancellor and her colleagues don't need a lesson in the birds and the bees of statecraft, but they must appease the cries of domestic anti-American outrage.
What does "a leeson in the birds and the bees of statecraft" means?

Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
Not a teacher nor a native speaker.
Is it used this way in AmE (fundamentals/basics)? It sounds odd to me.
