Where are teens supposed to learn about sex, asks student speaker Thea Holcomb. From alarmist imagery about sexually transmitted diseases? From the Internet and all its attendant judgment, bias and dysfunction? The answer, she suggests, lies with peer educators. In this talk, Holcomb explains why properly trained peer educators are the right people to disseminate both accurate information and healthy attitudes. As she says, "When you get accurate, judgment-free information from your peers, you realize that sex ed doesn't have to be scary."
