Sex and young people. Where are we up to?

Sex and young people. Where are we up to?

I recently spoke at a conference for youth workers in the Illawarra. I was asked to speak about young people and sex, is there a sexual revolution? the latest national survey, which gives us interesting data…

In preparing for this I was in touch via email with Melissa Kang Senior Lecturer Department of General Practice The University of Sydney at Westmead Hospital. All round good person I reckon. In amongst a lot of other very useful things, she had this to say:

 ‘We’ve given young women the ‘right’ to feel and want pleasure from sex, but I’m not convinced they know what that is a lot of the time. Young men are still expected to want pleasure and not feel too much, and they often want intimacy and love just as much.’

Something to think about.
