Many Teens Give Sex Ed a Failing Grade

Posted 13 Sep 2016 by Drugs.com

MONDAY, Sept. 12, 2016 – Teens around the world are getting sex education in schools that fails to address their needs and concerns, researchers report. By not addressing the complex nature of sex education and offering a curriculum that isn't practical or helpful to young people, educators are missing a key opportunity to protect students' health and well-being, the study authors added. "Schools should acknowledge that sex is a special subject with unique challenges, as well as the fact and range of young people's sexual activity, otherwise [they] will continue to disengage from [sex ed], and opportunities for safeguarding and improving their sexual health will be reduced," the British researchers wrote. The research team, led by Dr. Pandora Pound of the University of Bristol School of Social and Community Medicine, analyzed 55 studies that examined sex education programs in schools ... Read more

Posted 21 Apr 2016 by Drugs.com

THURSDAY, April 21, 2016 – Despite what's often portrayed in movies and on TV, most women can't orgasm with penetration alone during sexual intercourse. And simple anatomy is to blame, a new evidence review suggests. Each woman's ability to orgasm during sex depends almost wholly on physical development that occurred while she was still in the womb, according to the review authors. During gestation, the clitoris begins to drift up and away from the vaginal opening, the researchers said. But among women whose clitoris drifted too far up, it may be very difficult or even impossible to have an orgasm during sex, because traditional lovemaking doesn't provide enough friction to stimulate the clitoris, said Dr. Maureen Whelihan. She's an obstetrician and gynecologist in West Palm Beach, Fla., and an expert with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. "It's not her fault. ... Read more

Is 'Sex Addiction' for Real? Study Says Maybe Not

Posted 23 Jul 2013 by Drugs.com

TUESDAY, July 23 – Sex addiction has often made headlines, with celebrities blaming their romantic foibles on the condition. However, a new study questions the notion that people can truly be "addicted" to sex. The new study from the University of California, Los Angeles, suggests that self-professed "addicts" may simply have a high sex drive. "It is the first time scientists have studied the brain responses specifically of people who identify as having hypersexual problems," study senior author Nicole Prause, a researcher in the department of psychiatry at UCLA, said in a university news release. Sex addiction is typically diagnosed in people who have sexual urges that feel out of control, who engage frequently in sexual behavior, who have suffered consequences such as divorce or economic ruin as a result of their sexual behaviors, and who have a poor ability to reduce those ...
