I think that a proper sexual education is the key for everything. The more we talk about this issue the better. Most young people ( usually teenagers don't know the basics when they decide to have sex. And that a scary thing).
Sex is a pleasure, but it has to be done with knowledge. Only then it becomes unforgettable experience. :-)

Interesting but surprised that any one still believes these things. It reminded me of a comment a young friend of mine who said, "I only did it once!"

Do people still really believe that you can't get pregnant the first time? (Or even that you can't get pregnant if you have sex standing up? Really?? If so, there's something seriously missing in the sex education programme!
