(DAILY CALLER) -- Sex education must talk about all the elements of sex, even the graphic details, because teenagers and young adults are trying non-conventional sex way more frequently than generations before them, according to a U.K. study.
“At a time when much sex and relationships education is being updated, keeping pace with current trends in sexual practices is crucial so that curricula are tailored to the realities of young people’s experiences,” said lead researcher Dr. Ruth Lewis, according to the Telegraph.
Researchers from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and the University College London studied the behavior of young adults starting in 1990 and found that their activities have changed significantly, attributing these changes largely to the rise in pornography.
