I'm doing a project on the problems and anxieties associated with sexual roles, sexual activity, and expectations placed on us by society. i've been looking at information on sex education and america's approach v. the better approach of other western nations. can you think of any links or information that might be helpful? thanks in advance.

Well, for good online sources per how things can go here, and data relevant to that, you likely want to look at the Alan Guttmacher Institute (agi-usa.org) and SIECUS (siecus.org). AGI also publishes a journal called International Family Planning Perspectives (http://www.jstor.org/journals/01903187.html): bear in mind that you might discover that not all "better" approaches are western, AND that even here, there is a diversity of approaches, they're just not all funded and socially acceptable to all groups/areas.
Planned parenthood's global section lives here -- plannedparenthood.org/global/ -- and Population Action Int'l -- www.populationaction.org -- is a great resource.
For more, visit your library. With any paper, it's good to have BOTH print and online sources, not just online.
