Young People, Online Sexual Health Information, Science and Skepticism

Upper secondary
A Qualitative Health Research article authored by Adrian Farrugia, Andrea Waling, Kiran Pienaar and Suzanne Fraser. The article is useful to people teaching RSE given it provides information on the extent to which young people trust online sexual health information. Most interesting is that the evidence supports the idea that young people desire information that acknowledges the varied, contingent nature of sexual life. Accordingly, RSE should include not only "facts" and "science" but experiences.
