  1. as a BU student and BLS alum, I wasn’t too impressed with the sex education I receieved there; it did emphasize abstinance heavily. I realize other schools are in need that have no programs whatsoever, but as Peer Health Exchange expands, looking into the curriculum there and see if they think they can make any positive changes there.

  2. … but can someone please explain how genital to genital contact can involve the mouth? Are these kids contortionists?

    I hope this *isn’t* the correct answer according the Peer Health Exchange, or some of the ninth-graders are going to end up confused exactly where they need to be clear.

  3. Re: Maybe I wasn’t properly educated myself

    Genital to genital contact is exactly what it sounds like, thus it doesn’t involve the mouth. Some STD’s e.g. herpes, can be transmitted via G to G contact.

  4. can you define genital for me? i support the sex education in schools. it is needed badly. it should be started in our asian countries too…….

  5. The sex education is a very good thing and should be generalized in schools and high schools because it allows to ask questions and to approach subjects which are sometimes complicated in family!
