Right here at a public school in my hometown, a four-panelist discussion titled: "Sex, Teens & Drugs".
What are Boulder High School kids really learning about sex and drugs?
AUDIO <<- Click here to listen to excerpts from a Conference on World Affairs panel discussion at Boulder High School. Is this sex ed gone way too far? (less than 10min.)
Dr. Joel Becker, a professor of psychology, grabbed the attention of the audience by opening with a bold statement: "I am going to encourage you to have sex and encourage you to use drugs appropriately...why I'm going to take that position is because you're going to do it anyway."
Dr. Becker told the audience what research supports: that, regardless of whether parents and other authority figures tell teens to abstain from sex, they won't. A national study conducted in 2002 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that at the age of 15, 25 percent of boys and 26 percent of girls engaged in sexual intercourse, and 35 percent of boys and 26 percent of girls engaged in oral sex. Eighteen-year-olds' sexual activity was more than double: 70 percent of girls and 62 percent of boys engaged in intercourse, and 74 percent of both girls and boys engaged in oral sex.
Since most adolescents, by the time they graduate from high school, will have experienced an intimate relationship, the comments by the panelists addressed many of the questions that teens privately ask and most sex education classes do not communicate...

Here are some more quotes from the four panelists of "experts":
“Find some balance with having the fun and experimenting and enjoying what you’re doing, whether it’s learning sexually, or with drugs and alcohol, and hanging your with your friends, but keep focused, because you know, it is your life…”
“I want to encourage you all to have healthy sexual behavior. Now what is healthy sexual behavior? Well, I don’t care if it’s with men and men, women and women, men and women, whatever combination you would like to put together...”
“But when you’re 13, 12, 13, 14, certainly probably one the most appropriate sexual behaviors would be masturbation, masturbate, please masturbate...”
“We all experiment. It’s very natural for young people to experiment with same-sex relationships…But you know, if you’ve had that indoctrination, you think well, maybe there’s something wrong with me, maybe I’ve sinned, I’m dirty, all these other things that take a bad situation and make it much worse, in my opinion.”
"One of the problems we have right now is that religious communities are trying to give us information and sometimes that information isn’t correct.”
When a female student asked, “should you have sex with someone you like, but he doesn’t love you?” Three panelists giggled and said "yes", followed by roaring cheers from the audience, then one panelist said, “it depends...”
“From a female’s perspective, it [sex] doesn’t always have to be about love, and it doesn’t always have to be about long term relationships, it feels the same way both ways.”
Dr. Becker criticized abstinence-only programs and, according to research studies, rightfully so. Many of these programs give bogus information to our teens...
Some allude to religious customs by emphasizing monogamy and fidelity, stating that sexual relationships outside of marriage can cause psychological and physical harm. And others give the impression that babies born out of wedlock impair society and the families to whom they belong.
Yeah, because waiting until marriage to have sex and children is so destructive to a person's emotional and physical well-being, right?
Gee, I wonder why we have such large percentages of teens having sex, STD's, unwanted pregnancies, drug addictions, fatherless children and abortions? It's a good thing our tax dollars are going to these extensive public school sex-ed programs so the "professionals" can teach children what they really need to learn in life.
When you lower the standards for children by assuming they are "going to do it anyway" then encourage them to engage in reckless, harmful behavior and perverted sexual encounters, we shouldn't surprised when kids reach those low standards.
