Education teaches people how to live. If you are educated about sex, you begin to live with sex.

This is not a theory. This is fact. Look at the world today and you will observe that societies that are more open in their discussions about sex with minors also have more minors actively engaging in sexual activities. Whereas, societies that are more reserved and modest about sexual discussions, have less minors engaging in such activity.

Education teaches people how to live
There is an accepted view within Jewish orthodoxy that sex education should be taught when people are ready to have sex. When adults are ready to get married, they are ready to learn about sex.
