A couple of great sexual health websites for teens
In the wake of our recent reports on pro-life rhetoric masquerading as unbiased information, I just wanted to report on some great sexual health websites I recently stumbled across. The first, sexualityandu.ca, you may already be familiar with, but its worthy of note because it offers this fantastic Birth Control Selection Tool. As someone who was in the market for a new bc method, I found the easy to complete questionnaire (and the report it produced to take with me to my doctor) a really handy tool for exploring my options. The site, put together by The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada, does a nice job of being unbiased and not resorting to scare tactics - just smart, realistic and informative, while giving teens the tools they need for making informed decisions.
Sexetc.org is yet another unbiased, practical and intelligent resource for a variety of sexual health related concerns and questions. The site is put together by Answer at Rutgers University, a leading national organization dedicated to providing and promoting comprehensive sexuality education in the US. Their print magazine and website reflect the idea that young people can be trusted with honest, medically accurate and balanced information about sexuality. They’re even looking for teen Editorial Contributors to write for them.
