Teenagers most likely to ask Google for information about sex
Share This Article:
More than one third of teenagers go to Google for information on sexual health, new research reveals. This might have something to do with the fact that 76% of teenagers also never received ‘the talk’ from their parents. The birds and the bees isn’t the only subject not being discussed; 71% of 18-21 year olds don’t think they were educated properly on sex and sexual health topics during their education. Plus, around two-thirds of them still feel like they’re unsure about some elements relating to STI’s, STD’s, birth control and more. In an effort to find out more about young Britons’ attitudes regarding sexual health, online pharmaceutical company www.MedExpress.co.uk conducted a study. The research revealed the different methods used by teens to learn about important aspects of sexual health. Aside from the often relied upon Google, 25% of teenagers acquire information about sexual health topics from their friends, 19% from their older siblings, while 7% learn the most through school and only 9% from their parents.
