For parents, it was a rare, perhaps uncomfortable, glimpse into the sorts of situations they hoped they'd instilled enough sense into their children to avoid.
The film, based on a book of the same name by UOW Honorary Dr Kathy Lettealso gave audiences a glimpse into what health researchers Teen sex in wollongong the 'sexual economy' - not a phrase thrown around in everyday conversation.
Yet, it's a phrase that accurately and bluntly captures the essence of how, for some teens, sex is a tradeable object in the market for approval. Like all market economies, there are hidden costs and powerful vested interests seeking only their own gratification. For many teens, the costs have come in the form of sexually transmitted infections STIssuch as chlamydia, syphilis and gonorrhoea, as well as the spectre of violence toward young women and the emotional bullying of 'slut shaming'.
Medical anthropologist Associate Professor Kate Senior, who has spent close to two decades living in remote and rural communities talking to young people about sexuality and health, says not all that much has changed since Puberty Blues first caused waves in mainstream Australia. Using a body map, painting a life-sized body outline with feelings, thoughts and responses to situations and creating hypothetical situations, Professor Senior and her colleagues were able to get young people to open up about sensitive topics, lifting the lid on the sex lives of teens.
Professor Senior says their research revealed that issues of self-worth and how young people navigate relationships with each other were strong influences on their sexual behaviour. As one young person said, 'I'd have to wear a hoody and sunglasses just to go through the door [of the sexual health clinic]'.
Young people, Professor Senior says, seemed to be able to distance themselves from those who were rumoured to have contracted an STI. They often said that people who get STIs were 'dirty', and often associated them with being from another town or another school. Yet, they felt safer with their own peer group, who they'd often characterise as 'clean', despite having no real knowledge of who they'd slept with and if they'd been tested regularly.
The obvious reder would be that if you can't control nature, at least use a condom to prevent pregnancy and the unwanted transmission of infection.
Condoms are cheap, easy to access and use and are an effective protection against disease. Yet, if rates of STIs in Australia remain high, the logical conclusion is they're not being used as much as they should. To turn a 'should use' into a 'want to use'. It has the added bonus of being more skin-like to touch. Neural testing has shown a preference for the hydrogel-based material. Now researchers want to include young people in the discussion to make a condom that appeals to their needs and desires. That essentially was the theme of Puberty Bluesand it remains the theme now," Professor Senior says.
Young women particularly want to trust their partners and therefore may be pressured into not insisting on safe sex. This relationship inequality puts young women in a vulnerable position and compromises their feeling of control and being able to negotiate safe sex. A new material called a hydrogel has the potential to make condoms more 'skin-like'.CAESAR AGAINST THE PIRATES // Full Action Movie // English // HD // 720p

Professor Senior says young people are bombarded with conflicting messages, from the misguided to the downright inappropriate and Teen sex in wollongong in between. The difficulty is providing meaningfully sex education in a way that overcomes stigma and sensitivity.
In many cases, they knew this information wasn't very trustworthy, but they are critical of prevailing sex education that just 'focuses on the organs'. They say it's not relevant to them. Life Happens is an interactive game to help young people talk about relationships and sexual health. Life Happens uses life-size bodies and a series of challenges to guide its characters through a relationship or navigate a sexual health issue. The characters are not ased a gender - it is up to the participants to decide which gender they want to be - and can deal with both positive and negative challenges when working through the story.
PhD student Laura says the game enables young people to discuss the risks and issues, such as dealing with a sexually transmitted infection or an unexpected pregnancy, and pose hypothetical questions without feeling as if their own vulnerabilities are being laid bare. At the end people are given the opportunity to talk about where they can access information or help on topics raised throughout the game. There's nothing to be ashamed of, everyone has their own experience. Let's talk about sex.
