Transcript of Safe Sex
These STIs and pregnancies can be protected against or avoided with the use of contraceptives.
What is Safe Sex?
Safe Sex for Teens in High School
Sex Education is essential for teens especially in high school ages 15-24.
Teens need to realize the risks that they are taking when having intercourse and they need to be aware of the diseases that they can possibly spread.
• Half of all STIs occur in people that are 25 years old or younger.
• One in four new STI cases occur in teenagers.
• Ages 15-24 have five times the reported rate of chlamydia of the total population, four times the rate of gonorrhea and three times the rate of syphilis.
• In 2006, there were about 5,259 young people, ages 13-24, diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, representing about 14% of the people diagnosed that year.
The primary teachers of children are their parents. It is their right and responsibility to teach sexual morality to their children.
Providing Sex Ed. does not reduce the exposure or transmission of HIV/Aids.
Teens don't need sex ed, they need chastity ed. Kids need to learn how to say "no" and why saying no is in their best interest
