Having practiced as a gynecologist in Salt Lake City from 1984 to 2005 (and now in Europe), I can only support explicit and specific sex education for Utah's teens.

The shameful news about the high rate of sexually transmitted diseases in the woefully neglected and uninformed U.S. teens is big news around the world and rightly on all the talk shows.

Most of my Swiss patients would never consider having sex without a condom. "Just say no" has obviously not worked for our U.S. kids. When the only source of information is equally uninformed peers, the reported catastrophe ensues.
