Sexuality- The Scarlet Letters: “SE” for Sex Ed

In a perfect world, every child-guardian relationship would be punctuated with down-to-earth, all-your-questions-answered talk about the young person’s emerging sexuality.

In the reality, we need websites that do what Scarleteen and similar websites do: provide regularly updated, objective, medically accurate information about how the human body works, sexuality issues, emotional health, interpersonal abuse and other subjects teens need information about to make informed decisions.

Modern Love Muse’s “The Heart and Heat of Sexual Education,” recently published in SexIs, brought up the furor that ensues whenever sex education crops up in public discussion. Teenage ignorance, it seems, is thought by large sections of alarmed parents to be bliss. Parents, Muse said, need to hold frank, frequent talks with tweens and young adults that communicate parents’ sexual values and attitudes.
