Sex Education Deters Teenagers from Pre-marital Intercourse

Source: Morocco World News:

I don’t have to be a parent myself to definitively say that all parents have the same concerns regarding their children; they want to protect them and prepare them for success in their adult lives. All loving parents do these things. Parents differentiate themselves by the inexhaustible variety of methods they employ. These differences can largely be attributed to social and cultural differences.

Regarding the subject of sex, there are various concerns parents have toward protecting their children. In secular or more sexually liberal societies, parents are generally concerned about protecting their children from STDs, unwanted pregnancies and broken hearts. While in more religiously influenced, family-oriented, or conservative societies, parents are concerned with the aforementioned issues as well as protecting their child’s virginity, virtue, reputation, or spiritual purity. Sex education presents an effective and pro-active way to address these concerns. And it can even encourage pre-marital abstinence.

As a Canadian, brought up in the public school system, I went through several variations of sex education and experienced some of the radical changes in the public sexual education curriculum. Two of these changes include the distribution of “the sex book” to students, as well as the new development of the HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) vaccine.

  1. We have had unlimited sex education for years sexualising children as young as 4.now the answer is show children phonographs at school,anything rather than taking it down from the Internet all together..And educating the adults who use it. Secondary schools were criticised for concentrating on the mechanics of sex during sex education classes rather than the importance of loving relationships and the report called for primary school pupils to be taught about the difference between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ touching.

    Teenage pregnancy rate in Great Britain is the highest in western Europe. It is a civilised country and Yemen is a backward country because it allows young girls to get married. It is also gross hypocrisy for the police to prosecute paedophiles when the government is overseeing boy scouts being given condoms from the age 11 and girls of the same age being told it is OK to have sex if they use ‘protection’. Boys and girls at age 11 are not allowed to marry but they can have sex and produce children. Every parent is worried about his child being indoctrinated into the idea that gay and sexual promiscuity is “normal” modes of behaviour. At the same time, all parents have the right to control their children and it is their Duty to control them.

    However, each year in England and Wales around 300 under-13s become pregnant. Since 2002 there have been 63,487 pregnancies among under-16s including 15 aged ten, 39 aged 11, 268 aged 12, 2,527 aged 13, 14,777 aged 14 and 45,861 aged 15. So it is clear that many young people either don’t have the information, access to help and advice, or the self-confidence to take precautions or say ‘no’.

    The thought of being a virgin on your wedding night forget it, where are our morals and values. The answer, down the toilet. These are children having sex, getting pregnant exploring with partners. Just where is society going, I’m not psychic but from what’s going on in society today the future does not look pretty.

    More than a quarter of young women today lost their virginity when they were below the legal age of consent, NHS figures reveal. This does not surprise me at all, Britain has the most teen pregnancies in the whole of Europe. . Very sad that despite sexual education in schools nothing has really changed in the last 30 years, if anything it has become worse. Britain has the highest rates of abortion, STDs, crime, obesity, divorce, illiterate school leavers, teen pregnancies, excessive drinking and drug use. Makes me ashamed.

    Some 27 per cent of 16 to 24 year-olds admit they were 15 or under when they had sex for the first time.

    One in eight of this age group have already had sex with at least ten different partners. MPs and campaigners yesterday blamed the ‘pornification of society’ for encouraging young girls to dress themselves up as sex objects before they have even reached puberty. Critics say the rise in promiscuity over the generations is linked to increased sex education in schools that has ‘broken down the natural inhibitions of children with regard to sexual conduct’.

    This research confirms why the UK has the highest teenage BIRTH and ABORTION rates in Western Europe !!!!!!!

    What’s the point of the legal age being 16 when you are being taught at school that it’s ok as long as you practice safe sex. Nothing about love, respect, serious relationships or more importantly abstinence! Oh and something needs to be done about BOYS, too! Girls can’t be the only ones responsible for resisting pressure you know. More sex education in schools = more teenage pregnancies= more abortions. One of the problems is that now in schools we are taught safe sex at an early age, and not abstinence. The message was basically that sex at a young age is fine as long as it’s practiced safely. It should be taught that at such a young age, neither protected or unprotected sex is ok. The message is simply not clear enough.

    • “Some 27 per cent of 16 to 24 year-olds admit they were 15 or under when they had sex for the first time”. This is the crucial point, to be put before those who complain about ‘under-age marriages’. (but actually ‘the Westerners’ do not understand, because they do not believe that ‘sexual activity’ have anything to do with ‘marriage’).
      Confusing?
