Young people are taking part in a wider range of sexual practices, including anal sex, with opposite sex partners, research reveals. Experts looked at responses to a national sex survey that has been carried out every 10 years since in the UK. Vaginal and oral sex are still the most common types of sexual activity between young men and women, however. The age that young people start having sex - vaginal, anal or oral - has not changed much in recent decades. While the study in the Journal of Adolescent Health shows what types of sex people are having, it doesn't shed light on why preferences are changing. Experts can only speculate, but say society has become more accepting and less judgemental about sexual experimentation. Prof Cynthia Graham is a professor in sexual and reproductive health at the University of Southampton.
Sex education in Canadian schools continues to be highly politicized and young people are paying the price. In Ontario, sexual health curriculum is also at the mercy of the province's political climate. In many Canadian classrooms, factors like inadequate teacher training and discomfort impact what topics are addressed or avoided. Unfortunately, these circumstances mean that youth may not get the information they need to engage in healthy, positive sexual relationships. Meanwhile, sexual health resources flourish online. Studies show that many youth seek out information about sexuality in digital spaces. Within today's participatory social media platforms and networks, many of these resources are produced by youth, for youth. Young girls and women specifically are taking sex education into their own hands. As a doctoral student at McGill University and a sex education practitioner, I have had the privilege of studying how young YouTubers use their media to talk to their audiences about sexual violence and sexual consent, both in my own dissertation and in collaborative research. In these studies, I looked at a mix of YouTube videos and vlogs or video logs from youth of all genders , aged between 14 and 30 years old.

Feb My just barely l5 year old 9th grade daughter now has been spending time for 4 months with a l4 year old very nice 9th grade boy from a different school who lives about miles away. When he is over, they seem to be pretty physical, though respectful. However when we want to go out , I am confused what to do. Do I make them come with me even to the store, like younger kids?
