Hey, Mr. President! Let's talk about sex

Let’s be honest: Sex ed is seriously awkward…but it’s also seriously necessary. This year, sex education is standardized across the U.S.—kids from Maine to California are learning about the male and female bodies and sex based on one set of guidelines. The National Sexuality Education Standards have created these guidelines in hopes of providing clear, consistent, age-appropriate sex education to students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
But when it comes to the future of sex ed, our presidential candidates don’t exactly agree.
President Obama promotes a sex ed program that focuses on abstinence, but also believes teaching kids about things like contraception is important to reduce risk of teen pregnancy and the spread of STDs. This guy is all-science, all-the way.
Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, however, believes abstinence-only education is the right choice for American kids, and is the best way to prevent pregnancy and other consequences of teen sex.
Our stance? Sure, abstinence is the only form of safe sex, and teaching it is important. But studies have shown over and over again that teaching just abstinence in schools increases the rate of teen pregnancy—not exactly what we’re goin’ for with this sex ed stuff, right?

Where do you stand? Tell us what ya think should be taught in schools in the comments, babes!
