That abstinence-only sex ed is really working, huh?

Oral and anal sex increasing among teens. Instead of putting blinders on, Dear Leader and his abstinence-only friends need to address what represents a serious STD issue with real information and instruction. Jesus head chastity rings are clearly not cutting it.

During the past decade, there has been a significant increase in the proportion of teenagers and young adults engaging in oral sex and, less commonly, having anal intercourse, according to data from STD clinics in Baltimore, Maryland.

The finding is not all that surprising, Dr. Emily Erbelding from Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore told Reuters Health.

She explained that “a few national surveys conducted recently have suggested that oral sex may be a behavior that teenagers are increasingly participating in. For example, in the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth, most teenagers reported having oral sex and many had not had intercourse.”

* Newsflash: fundies are f*cking before marriage
* Abstinence ed is really working: oral sex safe and not really sex, say teens
* Texas teens increasingly knocking boots after abstinence program
* Score one against abstinence-only ed
