"'All These Contraceptives, Videos and That...': Young People Talking About School Sex Education". Alison Woodcock, Karen Stenner, and Roger Ingham. Health Education Research, Vol. 7, No. 4, 517-531, 1992. Oxford University Press. http://her.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/abstract/7/4/517.

In this article it is talking about how sexual education comes too late for teenagers before they've already had their first sexual encounter. Media and peers pressure kids to experience sex earlier than they should be learning about it. Some kids are embarrassed through peer pressure if they haven't done something sexual by age 12. Overall, this article is about how students are pressured into sex at a younger age.
