What is Comprehensive Sex Education? 

Comprehensive sex education includes information about abstinence, condoms and contraception as methods to help reduce the risk of unintended pregnancy and of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV. It also teaches interpersonal and communication skills and helps young people explore their own values, goals and options. The information is medically accurate and culturally inclusive, affirming of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth.  

The Benefits of Comprehensive Sex Education:

Evidence shows that youth who participate in comprehensive sex education programs: 
  1. Wait LONGER to have sex for the first time
  2. Have FEWER sex partners
  3. Have sex LESS often 
  4. Use condoms and birth control MORE CONSISTENTLY
