An Abstinence Question

I didn't know there are erotoxins, summer camps with workshops lead by advocates of the death penalty for gays, abortion doctors and adulterers, or that Jews do lead the abortion industry, and that pornography is training all [our] sex educators. But most of all, I did not know that Wilt Chamberlain can be used to sum up [Rep.] Waxman and every other person that's out there teaching the mechanics of sex.

I know a lot of professors read this site, and I have a question [or two] for all of you. Why isn't there an accurate abstinence program available? I mean, how hard can it be to put such a curriculum together? The literature is copious, well known, and easily accessible. It's not like you need to go look for sources in the Library of Alexandria.

Religious extremists are interested in imposing their beliefs. Politicians are interested in their careers. Who's up for some interest in science and pedagogy?

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to devise an accurate, fact-based abstinence program. This way, students can learn, clueless politicians can stop wasting hundreds of millions of dollars, and last, but not least, you, too, can conceivably receive an Abstie Lifetime Achievement Award.
