Sexual Health Weekly Roundup! This Week In Sex

June 7th, 2013 by Sondra

News Roundup 6 7 13

 

Each Friday, The Naked Truth will round up weekly sexual health-related news stories. Hot off the presses this week: Trans-Health, HPV, Syphilis, Google Glass Porn, and Canada.

If you are in Philadelphia next weekend, you may want to attend this: “2013 Philadelphia Trans-Health Conference – June 13th-June 15th” (Trans-Health.org) 

Let this news story continue to be a step toward public sexual health awareness, not a sensationalized opportunity to blame women: “HPV Vaccine Awareness Returns to Surface after Michael Douglas Cancer Claim” (The Guardian) 

Syphilis News Story Spreads like, well, Syphilis: “Mr. Marcus Sent to Jail for Exporsing Co-Porn Stars to Syphilis” (HuffPo)

Google Glass Porn App Banned by Google: “It’s Just a Matter of Time Before Porn Returns to Google Glass” (Bloomberg Business Week)

Canadian Province of Ontario Urges Government to Update Sex Education Curriculum: “Bring sex education into the 21st century, [Premier Kathleen] Wynne government warned“ (Ottawa Citizen)

“[The] Ontario Physical and Health Education
Association’s (OPHEA) latest reports attempt to dispel

some commonly-held myths about sex ed programs,
such as the suggestion they may be responsible
for increasing the frequency of sexual behaviour
— which studies have shown they are not, and in
fact often delay or decrease sexual activity”
