Sex education is undoubtedly necessary to teenagers, as sex education is not only provide physical knowledge about sex, but also teach adolescent how to behave well and have appropriate sex-orientation. Sex education is not simple as biology which is taught in China, it involves issue such as social support and behaviour correction in western world.

I don’t think doctors and nurses would be the right person to provide sex education to teenager.



Remember this – No accurate thinker will judge another person by what his enemies say about him.

In other words, don’t believe those stories and lies that my enemies have concocted for and about me.  Unless my mouth said them, they should be disregarded and taken with a pinch of salt.


I am an advocate of sex education and I am advocate of sex within the right premise.

If doctors and nurses are not the right persons to give sex education, then who is?

What do you understand about sex education and what is your expectation?  In other words, what should entail in a sex education?

Teen Sex: Fueled by Media Images or Curbed through Good Information?     6/5/2003
By Janice Shaw Crouse, Ph.D.

(CWA – Concerned Women for America)

Recent studies document physical, psychological and emotional damage from teen sex.

Pass any magazine rack and sexy images are on prominent display, not just in the popular magazines for adults, but also in those geared for the teen market. Watch any television show targeting teens and the sexual images are even more blatant and pervasive. The end result is that 20% of teens have sex before reaching age 15 and while teen sexual activity has declined, an astounding 48% have engaged in sexual intercourse. This is a remarkable failure for a nation that spends $219 million per year on comprehensive sex education programs. (In contrast, liberals raised a hue and cry against the proposed $135 million that the President proposed for abstinence programs.)


In February, our organization (CWA/BLI) released a poll conducted by the well-respected polling firm, the Zogby Organization, revealing that parents want their children to be well-informed –– they just don’t want their teens to get flawed and false messages and special agendas from comprehensive sex education programs and “safe sex” messages. Instead, they want their children to be taught the benefits of abstinence while they are getting straight-forward facts and information. In other words, they want their children to get the truth.


Parents face a challenge, however, in getting truth through to their children and teens. A study last month indicates that 70% of American teens get their information about sex through the media.


The good news is that, more and more, solid information about the risks involved with early sex activity is competing with the sexy images that bombard teens on every front. This week, the Heritage Foundation released a study indicating that “Sexually Active Teenagers are More Likely to be Depressed and to Attempt Suicide.” The Heritage data comes from the 1996 National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health, the study commonly called “Ad Health” from whose deep data resources so many organizations have analyzed specific issues and questions. The Ad Health study questioned 6500 representative adolescents and found that, in addition to the more commonly documented health problems associated with early sexual activity, there are significant psychological and emotional problems that accompany teen sex. One quarter of sexually active girls are depressed –– three times the rate of depression among abstinent girls. While less than 10% of sexually active boys are depressed, that is twice as high as the depression rate among abstinent boys. There is an even stronger link to suicide attempts among teens that are sexually active. The girls are three times more likely to attempt suicide and the boys are eight times more likely. This is very sobering data that cannot be ignored. Equally important are the personal reactions of teens –– overwhelmingly, they express regret at starting sexual activity. Two-thirds of sexually active teens express regret and fully three-fourths of the girls wish that they had waited.


Teens today live in the midst of a public health epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases. One in five teens has genital herpes. Half of the girls who have had sex contract HPV, according to the New England Journal of Medicine, and 14% of them will get cervical cancer, a disease that causes more deaths than HIV/AIDS. Over the past 20 years, more than 2 dozen STDs have been added to the two known STDs of 1960, syphilis and gonorrhea. And, while teen sexual activity has declined, it is still too high and more than 3 million teens a year come down with an STD. More than a quarter of sexually active teens have an STD.


Liberals tell those teens to just wear a condom. But the National Institutes of Health are unequivocal –– even with 100% consistency in condom use, there is only an 87% reduction of risk for HIV/AIDS and condoms decrease the risk for other STDs at an even lower percentage.


College counselors tell us that the physical risks pale in comparison to the psychological and emotional risks. Over the past 10 years, college counselors have seen their case loads expand dramatically –– depression cases have doubled, suicide attempts have tripled and sexual assaults have quadrupled.


Abstinence promotes the health and well-being of teens and is their best lifestyle choice until marriage. Young people are capable of developing the character, integrity, self-control and personal responsibility necessary for remaining abstinent before marriage. We do young people a disservice when we expect less. We endanger their health and well-being when we perpetuate the myths that “their hormones are uncontrollable; they are going to do it anyway” and “condoms provide protection so promiscuity won’t be harmful, let them live it up while they are young.”


No responsible adult can, in good conscience, seriously want to encourage teenagers to jeopardize their future by short-circuiting their character development and endangering their health and well-being.

Yeah :)

I can’t understand what you mean. Who are your enemies? I have not judged you yet, but I don’t like the way of your thinking. You rely on knowledge which gained from China to make judgement to things which happened in the other countries with different culture background. What is more, it seems you lack of common sense.

Do you have any idea what is social worker? What are their jobs involved? As sex education is not only biological knowledge of sex, it involves social control and moral values of the culture. Sometimes, parents can’t provide such support, as the teenager feel uncomfortable with talking person to person. What is more, they can learn the lesson from their peers who do group discussion with them. Such circumstance only can find from class-room of sex education expert.

Kids are curious about all kinds of things. There's a baby growing in Mommy's belly--how did it get there? Doesn't food go in there? Kids have a very basic sense of anatomy, and the concept of a person growing inside another person can sound kind of weird if you're young. Little kids, though, probably have little to no sense for genitalia, aside from the obvious functions of urinating/excreting, because they don't really have an understanding of what sex and sexuality is. Thoughts on sexuality among little kids is much more often of the "Eeeew, cooties!!" variety than anything else. Any old guy in his right mind should know that the kid has no idea what that thing in his pants can do. There's no excuse for such behavior.

A sexual experience at age 7 is definitely a little off the beaten path. Still, some girls discover their clitorises when they're young, not knowing what it is, just that it feels good to rub it. So... it's possible.

What concerns me is the lack of humanity with some of our posters....

To explain that: For some humans the sex act is a mechanical and get it done experience.

    For others, it is not only an emotional experience but even spiritual. It is a blending of the spirits, the physical and mental assets of two individuals. To experience a truly loving experience requires all the senses plus those many fail to recognize as senses at all. The term "beautiful" contains all these senses.
   Sadly, for others they will never know any more than "wham bam thank you mam" and that is so sad. Making love is an expression of tender love from the heart, the spirit and one's entire being.
   What was what I called a beautiful experience between the three of us was the added thing called "innocence" it was done without the knowlege of social and cultural mores. Noone told us sexual activity was good, bad or anything like that. It was innocent discovery. As we all became adults we all realized that that experience was a rare occurance directed by nature. There was no lust or and motives for our actions, there was no guilt or shame it was just a tender and natural response. That is what made it beautifu......
   Few humans have every been so lucky to experience sex in this way. It was something that just happened. No reason.  It gave me a much clearer insight into one of the most important things in relationships between men and women. Today my life is much richer for it because I understand things that so many others fail to learn.
