Sex Positive Parenting May Reduce STD's in Teens & Young Adults

According to the Center for Disease Control, in 2011 over 8,000 Americans under the age of 24 years old were diagnosed as HIV positive.  Many of these young people admitted to not using protection during intercourse.  This is without debate, a health care problem.  

There is always hope for a solution though and part of the solution may lie in the hands of those who are parents of teenagers.  Children need a trusted source of information to make educated decisions.  The objective of this post is not to blame parents but rather to offer assistance in dealing with these delicate matters.  

As a health professional who is childless by choice, I'm going hand off this topic of 'Sex Positive Parenting' to my colleague and friend who is the mother of two wonderful teenagers...Melissa Lopez, Sexual Health Educator.  She regularly posts these very helpful vlogs for the Center for Sexual Health and Pleasure.  Be sure to subscribe to their YouTube Channel so you will be notified of updates!
