Young people get information about sex and sexuality from a variety of sources, including through the media including advertising, television, books and Web sites. Some of this will be correct and some incorrect. Providing information through sex education, so it's about finding out what young people already know and enhance their existing knowledge and correcting any misinformation they may have had. For example, young people may have heard that condoms are not affected with HIV or AIDS treatment (Turansky,and Miller,2014), it is important to provide the correct false beliefs.

Talking about sex must not be a stereotype, it must be a way to inform and prevent.

As a result of this study, we are able to understand the importance of learning about safe sex. This generation is not aware of the consequences of a pregnancy at a young age or the implications that a sexually transmitted disease has. For this reason, MEP prepared different programs to teach and guide students to the best path.

So when we bless, purify, or honor the body as part of a sexual encounter, when we bond more deeply as a result of lovemaking, or when sexual union have us into higher consciousness, we make sex sacred.They should also be informed so that they will know the true purpose of sex when they grow up as adults. In conclusion, sex education should be taught in schools because it is better to consider health than beliefs and we should consider reality. Since immorality cannot be eliminated and teenagers cannot be stopped from becoming sexually active, we should implement sex education in schools, as early as primary school.

The resistance stem from deeply embedded cultural values about sexuality, intimacy, sex role appropriateness, and religiosity. Opponents of sex education often think that sexuality should only be taught within the home.

Sex education should occur throughout a student’s grade levels, with information appropriate to students development and cultural background.

The prevention of transmitting STDs has proven to be a controversial subject in the United States. The argument comes not from the objective of eliminating STDs, which everyone shares, but the differing strategies for arriving at that goal. The theory is that even mentioning condoms, much less admitting that they dramatically reduce the possibility of HIV infection, sends a “mixed message” about the worth and value of total abstinence up until marriage. Groups such as the National Abstinence Education Association (NAEA) state that avoiding sexual activity before marriage is the only surefire or secure method of protecting oneself from STDs. According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, the average age for Americans to lose their virginities is around 17 for both men and women.

These programs help students to know more about sex education even when they are not taught in school.

The Chief Executive of the Family Planning Association, Julie Bentley said “Parents are concerned that if they are told about sex they will go straight out and have it but research shows the complete opposite. They have sex later and when they do, they have safer sex”(Richie).
