Ashley Xiong Professor Schoolcraft ENG 122 15 October 2019 Increase Sex Education Over forty percent of boys and girls reported having sexual intercourse by the age eighteen. This percentage has decreased by seventeen percent since 1988 but sexual interaction is still happening today and can increase if good sex ed is not provided (Charles). I remember only having a half of a semester of sex ed in middle school, and it was based around why kids should be abstinence or the risk of having sex. It only briefly taught me that condoms can prevent the risks such as pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. Society must increase good sex education to teach teens the risk of unprotected sex, as well as provide free condoms to kids. The thought of having the birds and the bees talk with parents is always an awkward topic to overcome but increasing good sex education is a way to start. As a child, my mother was in charge of giving the talk since my father was no longer in our lives. My mother never gave me or any of my siblings this awkward conversation even though she knew we were sexually active.
