Youth sex education programs works only to delay teen sexual activity according to a new study by Center for Disease Control. See reports in USNWR, Reuters and others. See the abstract of the report in Journal of Adolescent Health.

According to the study teen girls in the nationally representative sample were 59 percent less likely to start having sex before age 15 if they had received sex education, while teen boys were 71 percent less likely. That is impressive. But no way it guarantee sexual abstinent life afterwards, especially in late teen and college years when sexual temptation is the maximum.

But the study does not distinguish between sex education approaches among teens. Abstinence by far has produced more favorable results. Most public schools and liberal curriculums still promote contraceptives, which may not have much success overall, particularly in late teens and college years.
