PositiveSingles.com, a leading STD dating website, asks parents to inform and educate their children on STDs so they happier and healthier lives.
Sex and sexually transmitted diseases are often taboos in many households. Parents are hesitant about discussing details on sex and how unprotected or unsafe sex may lead to contracting an STD down the road. PositiveSingles is voicing its concern over this matter and is encouraging parents to discuss with their children all matters related to sex so that they can make better decisions in their lives.
According to research, 6 in 10 sexually active teens in high school claim to have used condoms in their most recent sexual intercourse. This leaves 4 in every 10 teens in a precarious situation because unprotected sex can lead to contracting a sexually transmitted disease. In addition, 46% of high school students in the United States have already had sexual intercourse, and are at risk for STDs. This leaves a huge responsibility on parents’ shoulders to educate and create awareness about sex among their children.
PositiveSingles is leading the campaign by offering its dating site, which allows people with STDs to register for free and learn about them and how to prevent them. The website also caters to those who have contracted STD Dating and are looking for a partner to date, marry, or simply talk to. PositiveSingles gives people from all over the world a chance to voice their opinion on STDs and help others become more aware of avoiding certain mistakes they have made. The website has a section of Inspirational Stories, which contains more than 1300 stories of people with STDs who are learning to live happy lives.
PositiveSingles.com is also asking parents to take a proactive role in educating their children on the pitfalls of unprotected sex. While some parents may have contracted an STD at some point in their life, they often avoid mentioning this to their children out of embarrassment or the fear of being judged. To this, PS says that parents should help their children realize that there is a price to pay for unprotected sex.
According to a representative at PS, ” As parents, we often avoid discussing sensitive matters with our kids. Sex is on top of this list. If you were ever infected, did that infection make you want to educate your children? It is important to know the risks teenagers take because most are unaware of the dangers of unprotected sex. So it is important for parents to protect their children from mistakes that they may have made while young.”
PositiveSingles continues to offer its support to people globally. On one hand it allows people with STDs to find inspiration and affection, while on the other, it lets them learn how to be safe and avoid contracting an STD in the future.
