    Yes, but that was due more to changes in social attitudes towards sex rather than purely because of the education available. Imagine if society was as permissive about sex as it is currently, but there was no sex education or freely available contraceptives!?!
    But, even though it is a good point, without the availability of state condoms/education etc social attitudes towards sex would unlikely have changed so much anyway. That wouldn't necessarily have been such a bad thing.

    No indeed. However, these things are here now, and I hardly think that stopping them will solve the problem. As long as sex is portrayed as it is in the media and socially, and not enough of sex education is dedicated to finding the right person etc (my real bugbear with the system) it's vitally important to teach kids how to do it safely, if do it they must.
