Does sexual education in high school impact the rate of sexually transmitted infections?

PC correct or not!

Std
Zealots argue that sex education prevents STDs by explaing how to have unprotected sex, and also sAY IT DECREASES TEEN PREGNANCY. Well both have gone up in the era of "sex education." The schools should focus on core knowledge and have sex ed elsewhere!

How do you talk to your partner about sexually transmitted infections prior to having sexual with them?

Openly and honestly

Std
What a great question. There is not easy way to address the subject but it is so important. The decision to become sexually involved with someone involves trust. If you can not trust someone to have this conversation then it may not be time to be intimate. Protect yourself and your partner by being responsible and having an open dialogue about STD testing.
