Why Is Sex-Ed in Schools “For Girls Only?”

Forty-nine percent of boys have had sexual intercourse by the time they finish high school. One in four has an STD. Yet sex ed by and large still focuses on the needs of girls. How do we teach in ways that resonate with all students, regardless of their gender?

If you’re an educator–or anyone who works with boys–you may want to check out an online workshops offered by Answer, a Rutgers-University-based national organization that provides and promotes unfettered access to comprehensive sexuality education for young people and the adults who teach them.

The workshop is called “Boys and Sex Ed: Beyond Statistics and Stereotypes,” and is designed to help us understand how boys think, feel and learn about sexuality, and to give educators the necessary tools for teaching in ways that resonate specifically with boys.
