Take Care Down There!

TEXT SIZE: A A A
I found a great web site by Planned Parenthood called "Take Care Down There" about sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The site includes some great short videos about STIs, talking to your partner, oral sex and HIV risk, etc...

Definitely for older teens, but a great resource to start a conversation. The first time I took the quiz I was concerned that during the quiz one "correct" answer was that condoms should be considered not effective, but the comment below is true - he says (not very clearly) how effective is an improperly used condom - to which the proper answer is "not very effective." I also think it is a little creepy that the male educator keeps walking up and touching the female teens, but all in all - a great resource.

Teens - I would love to hear what you think after reviewing the site!
