Hello. Thanks for visiting our evolutionary philosophy of human sexuality pages. We are currently researching good quality sites relating to our biological and cultural sexual evolution - as a way of collecting and presenting the most important / latest knowledge and research.
Below you will find summaries of articles & websites on Adolescent Sexual Health, i.e. on Sex Education, Puberty & Development, Behaviour (Masturbation, Kissing, Intercourse, Abstinence), Sexually Transmitted Diseases, Pregnancy, Statistics and Resources.
The top ten related internet searches show a low interest in adolescence and education ('teen' and pornography are obviously much more popular).
adolescent (1,000), adolescents (400), adolescent girls (340), programs for adolescent girls (200), adolescent development (200), adolescent breast development (170), adolescent depression (165), adolescent care (60), adolescent mental health (40), adolescent psychology (30)
Sex education (4,700), $ex education for teens (520), $ex education masturbation (500), $ex education video (370), $ex Education in Schools (230), child $ex education (230), $exual education (140), $ex education statistics (100), anal $ex education (95), $ex education online (93)
The importance of truth (from evolution) is the foundation of this sex
study. We believe open honest research on sexuality is important for educating
people to the truth of our complex human sexual behaviour (which results
in better health, behaviour and relationships).
Below you will find a study of the incidence of STD's and pregnancy amongst teens in the U.S., France, Germany and the Netherlands. The European countries have much better sexual health outcomes compared to the U.S. Given that America has become more conservative and religious - the obvious conclusion is that lack of education (ignorance) and cultural / religious myth are often (invariably!) detrimental to our health.
We hope you find the following articles & websites interesting and

From the website: 'In the United States, the teen pregnancy rate is more than nine times higher than that in the Netherlands, nearly four times higher than the rate in France, and nearly five times higher than that in Germany.
In the United States, the teen gonorrhea rate is over 74 times higher than that in the Netherlands and France, over 66 times higher than the rate in former West Germany, and over 38 times higher than that in former East Germany.
So, if Dutch, German, and French teens have better sexual health outcomes, have fewer sexual partners, and initiate sexual activity at the same age or even later than U.S. youth, what's the secret? Is there a 'silver bullet' solution for the United States that will reduce the nearly four million new sexually transmitted infections occurring among U.S. teens each year, or the 20,000 new HIV infections among 13- to 24-year-old youth, or the 900,000 teen pregnancies?
Unfortunately, there is not a single, 'silver bullet' solution. Yet, the United States can use the experience of the Dutch, Germans, and French to guide its efforts to improve adolescents' sexual health. Indeed, the United States can overcome obstacles and achieve social and cultural consensus respecting sexuality as a normal and healthy part of being human and of being a teen. If governmental policies created greater, easier access to sexual health information and services, adolescents' sexual health outcomes could improve markedly.'
An informative collection of documents on Teenage Sexuality and Reproductive Health. Topics include pregnancy prevention and care, nutrition, development, statistics, data and resources.
From the website: 'Sexual development is a normal part of adolescence.
Fortunately, most adolescents go through these changes without significant
problems. Nonetheless, all adolescents need support and care during this
transition to adulthood, and some need special help.
The main issues in adolescent sexual and reproductive health are: Sexual development and sexuality (including puberty), Sexually transmitted diseases/ HIV/AIDS, Unwanted and unsafe pregnancies.
The Common Agenda advocates the following specific measures to prevent
unsafe sex and early childbearing among adolescents:
*Create a safe and supportive environment through promoting delayed marriage and childbearing, expanding access to education and training, and providing income-earning opportunities.
* Provide information and skills (life and livelihood) so that adolescents are better equipped to make good decisions.
* Expand access to health services that are affordable, accessible, confidential, and non-judgmental.
* Provide counselling for adolescents.'

We seek help in finding the latest scientific (evolutionary) research on our biological and cultural sexual evolution and distributing content (overviews / summaries) to relevant pages.
This site is well respected. We are listed as the Top Philosophy Website on the Internet with around 600,000 page views each week. So your contributions will be seen and read, and will be providing humanity with a great source of wisdom about a very important subject (that currently suffers due to cultural / religious myths).

Analyse any human emotion, no matter how far it may be removed from the sphere of sex, and you are sure to discover somewhere the primal impulse, to which life owes its perpetuation. ... The primitive stages can always be re-established; the primitive mind is, in the fullest meaning of the word, imperishable. ... Mans most disagreeable habits and idiosyncrasies, his deceit, his cowardice, his lack of reverence, are engendered by his incomplete adjustment to a complicated civilisation. It is the result of the conflict between our instincts and our culture. (Sigmund Freud)
We get a lot of people writing to us asking questions about sex. So we have added an 'Ask a Question' feature to our sexuality pages - to help share questions and answers as a way of helping one another.
Please use Facebook Connect (below) to add your questions / comments - the best questions and answers will be added to the page.
