Thesis Statement: Research has shown that comprehensive sexual education is the best way to educate and help teenagers about topics like sex, sexuality, gender and much more, unlike other biased and inaccurate methods like abstinence-only education. I. Introduction: The two major sexual education programs that are taught in public schools across the US are known as comprehensive sexual education and abstinence-only education. A. Sexual education is an important aspect of a teenagers ' development.
As well, it is safer for the teens that do have sex to know how to do so safely than to just assume that no teen will have premarital sex. Given that so many students will not abstain from sex, “programs have an obligation to help teens understand the risks and responsibilities that come with sexual activity. Survey after survey indicates that adolescents have a tremendous unmet need for information related to sexuality, contraception, STDs, and making sexual decisions” (Government Should Fund Sex Education). Comprehensive sex education will prepare teens in the event that they chose to not stay abstinent. It will teach them how to make good choices and how to weigh the benefits and consequences of their actions, because it is impossible to make an accurate decision without knowing all of

This isn't the only “pornographic” detail Luis states in his book, there are much more. He writes these details in his book because it is the reality of what teenagers do and he wants to teach teenagers life lessons about sex. Luis faced discrimination, arrests, gangs, drugs, and all kinds of street crimes.
However, this paper summarizes some of these problems. There are bases for claiming a link between the use of sexuality inthe media and individuals’ sexual and general attitudes and beliefs, For example, exposure to sexuality has been found to increase older youth acceptance of non-marital sexual behavior. In addition, it causes estimates of the amplification of more unusual and unethical sexual behaviors, less expectation ofsexual exclusivity with partners, less concern about sexual child abuse, and concern about thatsexual inactivity leads to a health risk. (Brown 2002).Although the government should put rules and regulations on the media channels to avoid this
There are different types of sex offenders which make recidivism complex to handle. Unfortunately, recidivism remains a difficult concept to measure, especially in the context of sex offenders. The surreptitious nature of sex crimes, the fact that few sexual offenses are reported to authorities, and variation in the ways researchers calculate recidivism rates all contribute to the problem. The containment model approach should be used which was developed by Kim English. It is one of the most effective models in managing sex offenders in the community.
This quotation goes to shows that by not teaching young women the responsibilties of their sexiality they will become what society considers sluts. Both of the quotes I have chosen show that there are many reasons to wanting to teach young adults about safe sex. They must learn about safe sex to avoid disgracing their families,large fines and or punishments. While transitioning from children to adults both children must learn to care not just for themselves but also their families. Saitoti writes, “Circumcision means a break between childhood and adulthood.
Sexuality, sterilization, and birth control all have a long history that has led to the current laws and approaches on these topics.

Following the history of children and their working classes, it is considered to very common in revealing that the history of childhood and youth was remarked to be the new subject that remained hidden for ages. If researching on children is termed to be difficult to find any source material, than we find more hurdles when dealing with the child victims of sexual abuse, and mostly the cases of incest, that is taken to be most hidden topics of all social illness. Pornography and child prostitution during Victorian era was at peak because of repression of obvious sexuality. With historical accounts relating to sexual abuse, has created large gaps in reporting and incidence rate. Thus children’s sexual exploitation during the era of Victorian
In other words, it is believed that individuals learn this behavior by experiencing or being exposed to sexual deviant behavior. Bartol and Bartol (2012) also suggested that any form of sexual abuse in childhood can shaped longstanding cognitive problems. With this theory, not only being exposed at early onset, but also being exposed at early onset can cause some type of psychological effects. These psychological effects can cause sexual deviant behaviors. Yackovich (2012) stated that many sex offenders suffer from some type of mental disorders.
The paramount question remains, what is the solution to avoid such consequences? Teens across the world are seeking help from internet, peers, and possibly experienced peers to answer most of their curiosities and questions. These sources don’t guarantee authentic answers and are mostly misleading. Here comes the role of sex-education. Educating capricious teens is already a tricky task.
