Is Sex Education Effective? Sex education is designed to help young people gain the information, skills and motivation to make healthy decisions about sex and sexuality throughout their lives. There is a wide range of sex education programs which can be delivered by anyone from health professionals to parents and community members.
Worldwide, sex education programs vary greatly in their structure and approaches. Nonetheless, most forms of sex education have three main aims: to provide information about sexuality; to promote healthy attitudes about sexual relationships and sexual behaviour; and to promote safer sexual practices, including abstinence and the correct use of condoms.
This book reviews existing research on the effects of different types of sex education programs. The authors conclude that comprehensive education which includes information about relationships, contraception and risk-reduction has a positive impact on young people’s sexual behavior. They suggest that programs should be designed to avoid common weaknesses in order to ensure effectiveness, including an ideal structure and clear goals.
