he teenagers tucked their hands into their sweatshirt pockets as they shuffled to form a circle. Some gazed at the asphalt, trying to avoid the game they had been drafted to play.

“It’s like hot potato/musical chairs, but with a penis,” said the girl leading the group.

The kids gathered on a spring morning in South Los Angeles were about to get a hands-on lesson in sex education.

Many health experts say that public health problems are best tackled outside the doctor’s office — that fixing the culture that perpetuates them is more effective than changing a single patient’s behavior. For sexual health, that means combating the stigma around sex.

Blame everyone else but not the person actually engaging in dangerous sex.

Here is what I want to see

Compile the information regarding STD’s and compare the Public School System to those in Private Schools.

I would bet that the STD rate in Private schools is less than 10% of the Public Schools.

Correction: "STDs in L.A. County are skyrocketing. Officials think racism and stigma promiscuous rutting behavior may be to blame."

The cure: respect God, respect yourself, respect others. Sexual union is the spouses' wedding gift of love --- to each other.

Don't do the nasty. Do the lovely.

If "officials" don't know what's causing STD's, then perhaps a refresher H.S. health class might be in order for them.

Mr Card was pretty descriptive in ours. I'd guess that the military could provide a good class on what happens when you put it where you shouldn't, as well.

Racism and stigma. Yeah that’s it. I’m sure it has nothing to do with bad sexual behaviors 🙄

Yes. Rich white males subliminally forcing brown teens to have dangerous, anonymous sex with each other.

My God, white people are all-powerful! Is there nothing they can’t do??

There was a time it was generally understood that if you don’t sleep with anyone you’re not married to, you avoid all manner of complications.

Iowa just passed a big pro life bill.

The response has been “Well, if you are pro life WHY DON’T YOU SUPPORT THE LIVES OF TEENAGERS DESTROYED BY UNPLANNED PREGNANCY!!! THEY CAN’T HELP THEMSELVES!”

My bride typical tells them to keep the pee stick out of the baby hole, and all will be good. But no, it is never the people doing the deeds responsibility but mine for saying “There is a price to having random unprotected sex outside of marriage”.

Liberal mindset is to do whatever makes you feel good and damn the consequences. Liberal think is you’re never to blame for whatever you do.
