I would like to emphasis on the rates of teens and young adults( under 25) getting STD's. The numbers are growing, especially those with chlamydia and herpes. It is really important for schools to provide sex education as a form of intervention. Having an STD affects your life in significant ways. For example your social life. The fear people have to date, the anxiety of telling someone with whom it seems to be serious that they have an STD. I'm really glad that there are websites such as PositiveSingle to help, knowing most of the people in the group age I mentioned spend a lot of their time online.
