i was reading through a few posts today on how some of you get things like safe sex workshops and get free stuff like lube, condoms etc.. i live in northern ireland and we NEVER get anything like that EVER! The only sex info we get is a crap talk in school when your twelve which tells you the very basic info on periods and how babies are made. Were never taught about how to use a condom about masturbation that would be evil in the eyes of our schools system and i didnt even know dental dams and latex gloves existed until i read this site! ive had to find everything out via this site and experience.also use of lube is also basically unheard of the only place i can think o get most of these materials is ann summers and its a rip off! give me ur thoughts on this of any info or similar experiences u have encountered

luv moonbeam *)

Yeah. I actually got sex ed in school, but when I came here, I was shocked at how much we hadn't been told. That's basically the reason this site exists, though. The information's deperately needed, and just not getting to the people who need it half the time, so we're doing what we can to promote this site, and keep the information on it relevant and accurate.

Why not print out some Scarleteen flyers, and put them in your school's washrooms, bulletin boards, or folded up in the library's magazines?
The page for it is here: http://www.scarleteen.com/flyer/index.html

And you know, I think I'll send this to Ethics and Politics, so the guys can respond too.
