Sex Education, Romance & Pregnancy

This matter is correct for educational purposes and addresses sexuality in a straight forward manner. While correct terminology is used, at times "street language" is used to reach the broadest section of people. If you think that you may be offended by such material you should automatically disconnect now. We believe that this matter is appropriate for those who are teenagers and older. Our hope is that it can provide you with some answers to sex related questions or concerns that you have. If you have doubts about anything given here, and even if you don't, you should always take the advice of a qualified doctor or a Public Health Unit.

Teenagers have many questions about sexuality. One of the most common is "Am I normal?" Most teens are concerned about body changes, fantasies, being sexually attracted to others and having sexual feelings. Teens are also curious about heterosexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality, masturbation, sexual satisfaction and just feeling OK about being curious. You may also have questions about birth control, pregnancy, abortion, sexually transmitted diseases and how to make decisions. It is normal to be interested in all of these. You may find answers to most of your questions in here.

It's also normal to be curious about heterosexuality -- sexual relationships with someone of the opposite sex, homosexuality -- or sexual relationships with someone of the same sex, and bisexuality -- sexual relationships with people of both sexes. You might find it helpful to talk over your thoughts and feelings with someone you trust, such as your parents, a counselor, a teacher, a school nurse, your doctor, or a friend.

We get ideas about sex from television, movies, music, ads, jokes, friends and family. You need to sort out your own ideas and values, what it is you want. Sometimes, one partner tries to pressure the other into becoming sexually active. Knowing your values and what you want will help you in this situation. No means No. Respect your partner and respect yourself. Sexual assault, even in a marriage or dating relationship, is a criminal offence. Only yes means yes.
Neither guys nor girls know all about sex. Take time to communicate your feelings and get to know your partner.
If you want more information, find books, or talk to an adult you respect and trust. You can call a local Planned Parenthood organization or Public Health Unit .
