Sex Ed. Works


A study just published in the Journal of Adolescent Health verifies what countless other studies and certainly informal experiences of us sex educators have found: that sex education in school encourages teenagers to put off having sexual intercourse!

Importantly, the boys said that they were more likely to use condoms the first time they had sex since receiving sex education.

Now girls from rural areas and female high school drop-outs were less likely to delay having sex. But it still reinforces that fact that the more we teach our youth about sexuality, the better prepared they will be to handle this powerful, emotionally charged and even life changing experience that is making love.
