I think it's a great idea.
All they do by text here is to remind you when you need check ups / test results.

This seems like a really great idea.

They do it where I am. You send a text to someone and they'll text you back, it's called sexions. I thought they were all over the UK.

Wow, this is extremely cool. I'm sure parents are about ready to have a field day though.
Sucks people can't be happy with simply having someone help and make sure their kid is safe.

I do like this idea, though I find the number of people uneducated in sex shocking. My mother was positively embarrassed by me last night when I started on about safe sex, and contraception at dinner, it was her fault she bought me cocktails
But really, by age 13/14 I knew almost everything I know now, with the exception of the implant and injection, as those are fairly recent options. Children need to take an interest in this for their own health, and hopefully a 'cool' way like this will be a great benefit.
I know my parent's would be glad that this information is available, and people who practise abstinence as the only form of safe sex are deluding themselves quite frankly.

Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.

That's pretty awesome. I'm surprised no one thought of that a few years ago, to be honest.

But uh-oh. Competition for TH!

Haha. The thing I like about this, is hopefully it can educate people about safe LGBT sex too. Really, you learn so much about using a condom and what not with straight sex, but how much do you hear about gay sex?

I agree, it's a great idea. Health class they sometimes have "anonymous" questions where people put questions in a box, but this is even more private and easier for kids to ask questions. I think it will prove to be a good thing.
