According to the latest National Survey of Australian Secondary Students and Sexual Health, teenagers claim sex education in schools is inadequate and focuses too much on biology instead of issues such as the emotional challenges of relationships, sexuality diversity, pleasure and consent. This book presents the latest information on sexual and reproductive health for young people, and includes key survey findings and advice on a range of safe sex behaviours relating to teenage relationships, sexual pressures and consent, contraception choices, teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. The book sensitively explores the most effective approaches to sexuality education for parents, teachers and students. How can teenagers be encouraged to learn positive sex education in the digital age?
