The Time for Inclusive Education (Tie) campaign, which has been building a case for inclusive education that teaches about the full range of human sexualities in school, will be bringing its message to the Scottish Parliament, at a public petitions committee meeting in October. Their presentation will include testimony from people who have experienced discrimination and abuse because of their sexuality.
The public petitions committee has the power to publish recommendations, which could bring Tie's goals closer to fruition.
A study of 101 men in the Boston area, the results of which were published in the Journal of Interpersonal Violence, showed that men who hire prostitutes tend to have less empathy for women, are more prone to sexual coercion, and are more likely to report a history of sexual violence.

Those behind the survey feel this may explain the recent increase in STDs among teenagers.At that age, there are no proper resources from which to gain sexuality-related information.
According to a new study, the results of which were published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, condoms aren't likely the cause of erectile issues, despite those who have reported difficulty maintaining an erection while using one.
