No, I don't believe it increases promiscuity, and in fact, lessens babies born out of wedlock to young kids not ready or in any way prepared to become parents.

Seriously, though, sex ed scared the cr*p out of me. All those nasty germies. All those crying babies. If you don't want your kids to engage in early sex, support sex ed.

^ plaid mom lol I am laughing because Sex Ed doesn't not promote sex but the consequence of sex! and I was taught in a very liberal school in 7th grade!
Then it came down to the implications of STD's where HIV/AIDS wasn't huge then!
The implications of teen pregnancy and the ensuing hardships afterwards.
Kids need to know this stuff and I know many parents are scared of approaching the subject but before it used to be get a anti biotic or another cure.

HIV/AIDS kills now and parents can no longer deny or inform their kids of the risks involved.
I have buried over 6 friends now to HIV and only one was gay. All of them in their prime of their lives in early 20s & early 30s with kids.
If you want to raise your child the right way? make them aware of the world and do not fear sexual education.

I guess it does but isn't that better than being clueless about contraception? "Taking a bath or staying upside down for two hours after sex can prevent pregnancy" are some of the misconceptions (pardon the pun) that are prevalent among young adults in Asia Pacific.

A survey that was conducted among 1800+ participants of ages between 20-35 from nine countries in Asia Pacific found that young adults are unclear about the effective use of contraception to prevent STIs and unplanned pregnancies. 8 out of 10 respondents in Singapore say they have had sex with a new partner without contraception. The figure is among the highest in Asia Pacific, just behind China at 89%, Indonesia at 88% and Malaysia at 84%. Equally worrying, 6% of respondents in Singapore are not aware of any contraceptive methods.

Part of the problem is access to accurate information, citing the internet and friends as the most common sources of misinformation.
