Teenagers in the Netherlands are dissatisfied with the sex education they receive at school, giving their sexual education classes an average score of 5.8, according to a study by Rutgers and Soa Aids Nederland. Dutch pupils would like more information about homosexuality and sexual diversity, as well as on how to treat each other in a relationship or during sex, the researchers found, Trouw reports.
Two thirds of Dutch 9 to 12 year olds are regularly confronted with graphic, sexual images online, according to research by Rutgers knowledge institute and broadcaster NOS. A quarter of these pre-teens regularly see images and footage of real sex. Rutgers director Ton Coenen calls for schools and parents to pay more attention to sexual education.
