Sex Talk Part 3: Getting Solid Sex Information!
It has been brought to my attention (by observation, since I’m perfect and it has never happened to me…) that teenagers tend to take their first relationships far too seriously. This is probably due to a mixture of hormones and the absence of a fully developed brain. Today I thought I would discuss how this situation turns us into total idiots whenever we are around “hot” members of the opposite sex (or the same sex as the case may be).
Everything revolves around sex. Our biological meaning in life is to pass on our genes. So it makes perfect sense that our hormones would drive us to complete this objective.
So if it’s only natural, why have people, throughout human history, opposed premarital sex and sometimes sex entirely? What reasons would they have to take this stand?
Well I don’t know if any of you have noticed, but sex can have consequences and sometimes these consequences can be bad. For example:
- Sexually Transmitted Diseases
- Unwanted Pregnancies
- Emotional Problems
- Social Problems
So it’s understandable why there are and have been so many taboos that surround sex. However, ignorance is not the answer to these potential problems. The best protection against an unwanted end result is KNOWLEDGE!
I thought about what resources teens might use if their parents or schools fail to appropriately inform them about sex. While searching, I found some interesting sites. The first place I’d like to share is a video podcast called “The Midwest Teen Sex Show.”

I would like to add a disclaimer: This site recognizes the existence of sex, so don’t say I didn’t warn you. I like what the site’s disclaimer says:
“Teens and sex. It happens. Not every teen is having sex and not every teen is abstaining. We hope the Midwest Teen Sex Show will create a space for frank discussion of all things related to teen sexuality.” I hope so too!
