Provide a 5 pages analysis while answering the following question: The Postponing Sexual Involvement Curriculum Among Youths. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. The issue is not whether or not we need sexual education. the issue, rather, is how much of it, and of what kind we need. Based on growing trends of teenage pregnancy, it seems apparent that our society needs an increased awareness of practicing so-called “safe sex”, perhaps even at an earlier age. Nevertheless, we also need a different kind of sexual education: a shift away from the conservative, Christian-based abstinence-only curriculum, and to a more expansive, more intrusive support of sexual relationships. Only by making sex education more expansive (although being careful not to cut into other subjects), and of a more effective sort, can our society solve this problem.An increased presence of sexual education has been empirically proven to address several key issues involving young adults—the most pressing of which is teen pregnancy. A so-called “comprehensive sexual education” refers to programs that “respect the diversity of values and beliefs represented in the community and will complement and augment the sexuality education children receive from their families” (Collins, Alagiri and Summers). As we shall see later on, abstinence-only sexual education is largely ineffective and, at worst, destructive. Studies of comprehensive sex education programs, particularly those that include HIV/AIDS, indicate that “they do not hasten the onset of sex, increase the frequency of sex, and do not increase the number of sexual partners. To the contrary, some sex and HIV education programs delay the onset of sex, reduce the frequency of sex, or reduce the number of sexual partners” (Kirby). This finding comes in stark contrast to the objection of many abstinence-only advocates, who claim that an expansive sexual education program “encourages” or “makes more likely” young adults having sex.
