ABSTRACT
This article discusses on the issue of sex education in the U.S. Abstinence-only sex education is naive and wishful. It spectacularly misunderstands adolescence and eros. It confuses sex and moral education, twisting human sexuality and reproduction into the foundation of character. Unfortunately, leaders of broad-based Christian pressure groups such as Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council are making "abstinence only" a nonnegotiable educational demand nationwide. While sex education is popular — a large majority of Americans want instruction in schools — aggressive sex education bothers many different groups and individuals.
