Sometimes Coming First Isn’t Everything

Tuesday 12th March / presented by Daniel Cleary

Sex is everywhere.

On a billboard, during an ad on TV, walking down the street - a child can easily witness sexualisation in our society

So why are kids made to feel shameful, confused and embarrassed about something that could change their lives forever?

Sexual education is not mandatory in our schools, but maybe it should be - an estimated one in five young people have Chlamydia, for example, and this has increased three fold in the past decade.

Such a stigma and lack of education combined with an extreme prevalence of sex in our society seems like a recipe for an uninformed, spur of the moment decision and quite possibly, disaster.

Youth Affairs Council of Western Australia CEO Craig Comrie has called on parents, teachers and government to stop being so squeamish about sex and talk to their kids, and is leading a campaign to bring sex ed to schools.

He’s joined Daniel Cleary in the studio.
