Sex education is one of those things that is too important to leave in the hands of the family unit. I know many people who got bad information, or simply no information from their parents about the "facts of life" - the result of this information deficit is real and costly. Unwanted pregnancy, high rates of STD infection, and sexual abuse/violence are all side effects of restricting information about sex. As difficult as it may be for some parents to accept, all young people deserve facts and knowledge about how to conduct themselves sexually, and what the consequences of their choices will be.
