Many articles seem to support programs that are abstinence plus over abstinence only. I have yet to see any real evidence why abstinence only would be a good program to implement, but I did find the following article that claims that abstinence plus programs doesn't work either.
The report refers to another article that reports ""Virginity pledges are ineffective in curbing teen STDs, study finds."
It lists programs and calls Panned Parenthood and other organizations simply repackaging their "everyone is doing it so use a condom" sex ed programs into "abstinence plus". It claims that that the contents of abstinence plus is ineffective and "typically have condom use exercises in which middle school students practice unrolling condoms on cucumbers or dildoes."
"The sad story is that kids who are trying to preserve their technical virginity are, in some cases, engaging in much riskier behavior,"
The writer is a abstinence only supporter and supports "education that teaches the value of sexual purity".
What do you guys think about this? Are you convinced?
