We spent $875 MILLION (that is *not* a typo) to fund abstinence-only education over the last 10 years. The results? Absolutely no differences in abstinence between control groups and abstinence-only education groups. (Okay, actually, those in the abstinence-only group were 1% more likely to have 4 or more sexual partners. Oops.)
Can we go back to teaching safer sex practices now?
Healthbolt’s got the graphs.
