Sex Education

Sex education is a lifelong process that begins at birth. Parents/caregivers and other trusted adults, family, peers, partners, schools, religious organizations, and the media influence the messages people receive about sexuality at all stages of life. All people have the right to accurate information and age- and developmentally appropriate education about sexuality.

Sex education should address the biological, sociocultural, psychological, and spiritual dimensions of sexuality within the cognitive learning domain (information), the affective learning domain (feelings, values, and attitudes), and the behavioral learning domain (communication, decision-making, and other skills).
