Sorry I can't seem to get all my thought down in one post :)
Just want to say that as a teenager I did not appreciate the risk that sex could potentially cause to my body. When you're a kid you just don't understand how valuable your health is. I plan on showing my kids exactly what STDs are. What they look like and how they will effect your body and your life. A penis is not much different than a used needle. I think that's the big challenge when teaching kids about sex, getting them to understand how 'life changing' a moment of pleasure can be.

I'm all for the vaccine. HPV is the most common STD and a known catalyst for cervical cancer. My DD's are 2 & 4 so I have some time to see how the vaccine does. I didn't read the article but I don't see how or why we would expect the vaccine to curb teen sex.
