My sex ed courses were somewhat lacking, but thankfully what was there was accurate. For example male masturbation was given some passing mention, but the clitoris and female masturbation were left out altogether. Abstinence was encouraged, but we weren't told the common lies about condoms being ineffective, so that much at least was fair.
What disturbs me is the fact that abstinence-only programs exist at all, and the lies and misinformation they spread concerning birth control. Areas that use abstinence-only sex ed have much higher
teen pregnancy rates than those that use comprehensive sex ed. This being the case, shouldn't folks have woken up by now?!
Preach abstinence all you want, that's fine, but the bottom line is that many young folks will
follow their natural drive and end up having sex, and it's better that they be prepared to do so as safely as possible.
