Young adults who have gone past the puberty phase need to be educated about body parts and their reproductive system. Sex education is not just an option but also a necessity for teens these days. They are meant to learn something deeper about relationships and safe sex, as these will educate them how to act maturely when the time comes.

Waiting to experiment is a better choice
Most of the adults will advise that waiting to have sex is better than using contraceptive method. Parents would rather that their children be taught of the right values in schools instead of teaching them which birth control pill is better to use. Preventing teenage pregnancy can be also done through encouraging teenagers to practice self–discipline and chastity.

But it is important that the issue of practicing safe sex should not be ignored altogether, because in the end, the choice is always made by the teenager. Parents cannot really impose upon them what to do and what not to do in these matters. They cannot control their children. And so all teenagers should make sure that they make the right choice at all times – and always as if their future depends on it.

Unwanted Pregnancy and STI’s
Immature teens are more likely to acquiring sexually transmitted infections if they choose not to listen to their teachers, doctors or mentors for following the principles of safe sex. Protected sex must be practiced if sexual relations cannot be postponed until the right time. If safe sex is not practiced, the outcome is usually either a disease or a pregnancy. Whichever it is, the long–term effect of this is very unpleasant. Children having children of their own is reaching alarming figures.

Peer Pressure
Statistics show that most teens give in to sex if they experience too much pressure from peers. This is especially true with boys, who may feel as if they are forced into a sexual relationship way before they are ready. Most boys feel pressure from their male friends, especially if these friends have had sexual relationships in the past and expect their friends to prove their ‘Manhood’

Teenage girls also feel pressure, but not as much as boys do. In a recent survey, a larger percentage of the boys who were questioned admit that they had felt the pressure compared to the girls. Only a handful of teenagers don’t feel it at all or opted to wait for the right time to have sex.
