"Abstinence-only" : The American sex psychosis
This culture of abstinence is subsidized by the federal government and has been distilled to public school for twenty years, particularly under the two terms of Republican George W. Bush. Who, as governor of Texas, had spent at least $10 million in 1995 in the sex education program "abstinence-only", designed to teach young Americans that the best way to protect themselves from dangers of sex - sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and teenage pregnancy - is to remain a virgin as long as possible, if they can not wait until marriage. Learning that is not accompanied by information on contraception.However, as shown in the American think tank Think Progress, numerous studies have shown that abstinence programs failed to prevent early pregnancy among U.S. adolescents, quite the contrary. For example, Mississippi, whose program public sex education is that abstinence-only, in 2010 had the highest rate of teenage pregnancies in the country (55 per 1000).
