A new study published by the Archives Of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine concludes that an abstinence-only approach to sex education works.
Actually, the study proves an abstinence-only approach to sex may have worked for a very small sample — 662 Philadelphia students, to be exact. …And, of course, the kids had to self-report if they were having sex…to adults…which is super embarrassing and scary.
…Aaannd 33 percent of the kids still ended up being sexually active (hopefully they used condoms).
Oh! And the program also avoided the crazy extremes of other abstinence-only classes by not advocating abstinence until marriage, but instead until students were “more mature.”
