Most Parents Suck At Talking About The Birds And The Bees

Maybe you have kids and are already dreading having to talk to them about sex. Or maybe you’re still trying to recover from that super uncomfortable conversation with your own parents. Seriously, is there any way the experience cannot be traumatic for all parties involved? A new study proves what we always knew about our parents; they suck at talking about the birds and bees. The sad stats say that more than 40 percent of teens surveyed in the study had already started doing it before their sheepish parents broached the issue. Forty-two percent of girls reported that they had not discussed birth control and 40 percent admitted they had not talked with their parents about how to refuse sex. And about 70 percent of boys said they had not discussed how to use a condom. OK, that’s scary bad. No wonder teen pregnancies and STDs are increasing at an alarming rate. [Time]

Feeling a little nostalgic, I did a search for “vintage sex ed” on YouTube this morning and found this gem from the ’70s. Poor Ricky! Not only does his mom walk in on him at the most inopportune time, she proceeds to ruin any chance he might have to “feel good” in the future. Then again, as her voice plays back at the end, it’s hard not to wonder if maybe she didn’t just give him more fodder for the job… Keep reading »

“Condom Worshippers” Rejoice!

Federal funding for abstinence-only education was stripped from the budget in the House subcommittee, and the Christian News Wire isn’t too happy about this. According to them, “There is evidence that abstinence education is an effective primary prevention strategy.” It’s just, um, nowhere to be found. When Congress ordered a study in 2007 on abstinence-only ed, it was (shockingly!) revealed that “students who participated in sexual abstinence programs were just as likely to have sex as those who did not.” The study also found that these students were just as likely to use contraception when they did have sex as those who did not participate.
