'More sex education needed' for 13 to 16-year-old girls

Girls aged between 13 and 16 in the UK should be given extra sex education.

This is according to Conservative MP for Mid Bedfordshire Nadine Dorries, who noted society is "saturated in sex".

Under a bill she has proposed in front of the House of Commons, young ladies will be given additional advice about the issue of intercourse.

The result of such discussions could be that they are more likely to use condoms when fornicating, or they could choose abstinence.

"Peer pressure is a key contributor to early sexual activity in our country. Society is focused on sex, Ms Dorries observed.

If school children do receive more teaching about these issues, then there could also be a reduction in the number of sexually transmitted infections in teenagers.

Last month, research carried out by the University of Gothenburg on behalf of the Swedish Institute for Communicable Disease Control found not enough adolescents are wearing prophylactics when having sex.
