Coming from a diverse high school in a suburb of Chicago, the sexual education I’ve experienced was very informative, unbiased, and respectful to all individual preferences and views of sexual health. Therefore, I was surprised with the various close-minded forms of sexual education that many of my fellow classmates have experienced. I found many of the stories told to be ridiculous and appalling. In my opinion, sexual health education should solely provide necessary information to understand the physical, mental, and emotional effects of sex as well as how to practice sex in a safe and healthy manner. Educators should not force biased believes upon youth, especially when it pertains to their sexual health. Like we mentioned in lecture, these educational tactics (abstinence-only, fear-based, etc.) have only decreased the sexual health among students. Sexual health is important because an unexpected pregnancy or contraction of an STI can not only affect an individual’s physical and mental health, but also hinder an individual’s educational and career goals in the long-run. In order to improve sexual health, sexual education needs to be standardized so everyone receives the same comprehensive education. How should we better educate our youth about sexual health? Why has research shown that biased health educations decrease the sexual health of students?
