Sex – why our kids need to know about it

Recently some (notably the BNP and our beloved Jacob Rees-Mogg) have joined the moral outcry – ‘why are we teaching our children about sex’. It ‘corrupts them and leaves ‘lasting damage’ claims Mr Ress-Mogg. It ‘borders on pedophilia’ claimed the BNP. I cannot stress enough that this is simply not true.

Review after review of international research into the subject show that when combined with access to contraception promiscuous behaviour does not increase but pregnancy rates and STIs do decrease.

This is simple fact – not the outdated opinion of the extreme right.
