How unprotected sex is on the rise - The Standard Digital News (satire) (press release) (registration) (blog) | Mia's Yr 9 Journal | Scoop.it
Long gone are the days where you got to meet a girl in decent places, woo her, court her, and if you were lucky enough,ahem!..take her home.
Mia Whitehall's insight:

This article is about the changes in society that have lead to things such as unprotected sex that rarely happened before. It is factual whilst bringing a personal side to the article making it suitable for adults as they can relate to what it was like when they were younger.

 

I think this article is good even if it doesn't not provide the statistics or all the information needed to know about unprotected sex, it is a little more in a personal tone and not all factual which people can then relate to as an audience and learn more about the changing society.
