MONTREAL – With cuts to sex education in Quebec schools, and some parents unavailable – or unable – to talk about the most awkward of topics, a new Montreal-based project is on offer to help teens with their sex questions.
AIDS Community Care Montreal is asking sexually curious teenagers to send them their questions about sex via text message.
Teens can text their queries and will get an answer back from trained volunteers within 24 hours.
HIV educator Kimberly Wong shares how the program works and reflects on how Quebec’s decision to eliminate sexual education from the curriculum is affecting Montreal teens.
To reach a Sext ed volunteer with a question, send a text message to 514-700-0445 or visit sexted.org.
