Secondary Students and Sexual Health. 2008. 4th National Survey. This is a big report. So check it out

One goodie…
‘Most students (88%) had sought information regarding sexual health. Students most commonly sought information from their mothers (56%), female friends (55%), the school sexual health program (49%) and pamphlets (44%). Despite not being used as frequently by students, doctors (39%) were the most trusted source of information on sexual health.’

It’s the seeking information that I regard as positive. The source might be more of a discussion. What happened to fathers?

And one not-so good…stat from the report:
‘For young women, experience of unwanted sex has increased significantly between 2002 and 2008 surveys. In 2002 28% of young women reported ever having unwanted sex and in 2008 this figure had increased to 38%’.
