New Sexuality Resource From SIECUS

TEXT SIZE: A A A

I thought many of you might be interested in a fairly new website aimed at youth from the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS). The web site, Talk About Sex, is pretty interesting, has a self-test, and a "choose your own adventure" activity which focuses on communication and negotiation skills.

There is simple and interesting information about bodies, HIV, sexual orientation, sexuality, and reproductive health on the site. I particularly loved the interactive body section, and the suggestion that boys see a doctor annually after they start being sexually active.

There is never too much information and this would be a good site for parents to explore with teens. Have fun exploring!
