To fight against sexual violence – sex education helps teenagers to biologically understand themselves . It also empowers boys and girls to speak if their sexual boundaries are being violated and they do not fall victim of sexual predators . It is also proven that countries that have positive attitude about sex education also have better health outcome .

Barriers to providing sex education :

Opposition of government – people think that teaching sex education in schools is equivalent to teaching them about sexual intercourse . And they view it in a wrong way and thinks that this will spoil them and morally corrupting them .

Lack of knowledge – though some teachers are determined to provide sex education, some find it difficult and inappropriate. Also there are lack of skilled teachers .
