To prevent students from being infected by sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and unwanted pregnancies, sexual education is important. Many high school students and even higher education students face the aforementioned consequences in their school years and it's best, for their future, to avoid them. Unlike typical high school courses such as geometry or algebra, sex education is a course that young people will apply in their lives.
Learning about sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies are not the only aspects of sex education. It can also include the biological development of the human body, sexuality, sexual activity and relationships. Though some may deny it, out of religious fear and dogma, sex is a natural experience.
Since it is so natural, it is important to teach students, at a reasonable age, the dangers of sex and how to prevent them. Having comprehensive sexual health classes in schools ensures that students and teens alike are taking preventative measures to keep themselves and their partners safe. Sex has its consequences. Therefore, it’s very necessary that students understand these consequences, using methods they learned in their sex education class.
