‘Be safe with a condom’ has been the predominant message in sex education in this country for 20 years. More recently a further message has been added, ‘If you make a mistake, use the morning-after pill as a fall-back’. After such a long time two things are clear. The approach has been a failure and they are the wrong messages. And it has failed because they are the wrong messages!

Our young people know more about the condom and have easier access to it than ever before. Yet all time high rates of sexually transmitted diseases and teenage pregnancies out of wedlock prove that more of the same message will make things worse not better.
