Posted on 11/12/2010 2:31:51 PM PST by sebastianbock
Purpose: Promote and protect the sexual health of the Department of the Navy (DoN) population to support mission readiness and accomplishment, minimize avoidable health care costs and personnel losses, prevent morbidity and mortality, and support quality of life.
Definition: Sexual health is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination

Safe sex = padded headboard
Does it seem odd to anyone else that the generation who has had the most information available about sex, the most education in school about sex and the least judgmental culture about sex in modern history seems to need this?
Ping for later
or they could teach abstinence outside of marriage between one man and one woman. 100% safe, effective, and biblical.
Most women today keep their favorite recipe ingredients more secretive than their sexuality.
Sex is now just another bodily function. Witness TV advertising and sit-coms.
Our children know more about birth control pills, oral/anal sex and condom placement than how to write letters, wash their clothes or clean a toilet.
If only we had less food, less sex and more rules we would be back in the golden era of self control and self worth.
Sailor! We’re issuing you a Norplant!
You might be surprised, however, how ignorant they really are about all of those things, including birth control. The information is out there, but they still don’t know much. My point is simply that they don’t really want information. They just want to do what they want to do. Our culture has given them a green light, and being kids, all the information in the world is not going to make them *safe*. What they need are responsible adults who keep them from doing all these things they are not mature enough to handle until they too are responsible adults.
(I taught sex ed up until about 7 years ago in a public school. Believe me, the kids didn’t know much and they didn’t care to know more).
So a service member is not allowed to DISCRIMINATE in his sexual preferences now?
When I was in basic infantry trainining at Camp Hood ,Texas in WWII we had good venerial disease control,i.e. regular ‘show it’ inspections and lots of pictures particularly in the latrine saying ‘ She might look clean-but?’ Enough education to fill the pipe line with thousands of healthy fighting young men.
Rush said good sex is a flat headed woman....on his program, in public for all to hear....

Good idea. Sailors traditionally have always responded positively to the concept of abstinence.
