Sexual Risk Avoidance Resources & Organizations

  • Thrive St. Louis http://www.thrivestlouis.org/index.php
  • Focus on the Family http://www.focusonthefamily.com/
  • National Abstinence Education Association http://www.abstinenceassociation.org/index.html
  • Christian Medical Association (CMA). CMA supports the truly comprehensive breadth of Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) programs, which provide students with medically accurate information to build a realistic understanding of both the potential benefits and risks of protective technology and techniques designed to prevent pregnancy and inhibit the spread of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. SRA education provides medically accurate and theoretically sound information in an approach consistent with proven public health models that address other youth risk behaviors such as smoking and drug abuse. Basing content in peer-reviewed research, SRA programs address the considerable risk to adolescent physical and emotional health in a realistic, comprehensive and effective program. SRA education offers a proven effective model that provides teens with the accurate information and personal strategies they need to make well considered, evidence-based healthy decisions. Millennia of societal and religious standards, combined with contemporary social researchi , attest to the protective and strengthening value of marriage (Source: See familyfacts.org, http://www.familyfacts.org/charts/marriage-and-family and Marriage and Religion Institute, http://www.marri.us/home). SRA programs appropriately emphasize the value of marriage, consistent with the stated policy of the U.S. government to advance “a mutually faithful monogamous relationship in the context of marriage as the expected standard of human sexual activity.”(Source: US Government SEC 510 [42 USC 710]:2005.)  http://cmda.org/library/doclib/Sexual-Risk-Avoidance-Education.pdf

  • Gay, Lesbian, & Straight Education Network (GLSEN). http://www.glsen.org/
  • Safe Connections. https://safeconnections.org/
  • Sexuality Information & Education Council of the United States (SIECUS). SIECUS “believes that sexually explicit visual, printed or online materials can be valuable educational and personal aids…such materials can help reduce ignorance and confusion and contribute to a positive view of sexuality while supporting the sexual rights of all.” (SIECUS position statement) http://www.siecus.org/
  • SexEtc.org. Markets itself as a site made “by teens, for teens.” It is a graphic sex blog that disparages abstinence, promotes liberal sexual rights activism and encourages youth to exclude their parents from knowledge regarding medical treatments for STDs. http://sexetc.org/
