Straight Talk on Teen Sex

Posted Friday, February 1, 2008

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

Most parents dread having "The Talk" about the birds and the bees more than their kids dread hearing it. But experts say one talk isn't enough. Parents need to keep talking about sex. Teen birth rates are up for the first time in sixteen years. Teen actress Jamie Lynn Spears is expecting. The new movie "Juno" about a pregnant teen has become an instant hit. Is your teenager having sex? Does he use a condom? How many partners has she had? Makes you cringe, doesn't it? Straight talk on teen sex ... Friday at 9 on The Sound of Ideas.



Linda Bradley, OBGYN Cleveland Clinic
Philip Fragassi, Medical Director of both the Juvenile Detention Center and New Directions, an adolescent treatment center for substance abuse
Lita Townsend, Responsible Sexual Behavior Supervisor for the Cleveland Metro School District
