Maxwell Thomas Moore's insight:

Young people who get drunk aware of risk of sex attack (Aus) | Year 9 Alcohol and Sexually transmitted infections | Scoop.it

Having umwanted sex that you later regret can be linked to binge drinking. It's crazy the way people think that if they don't drink with their friends then they aren't socialising.

This is a very good video about contraception because at the begining it gives you the statistics of how many teenagers have sex before 16 then it gives you some thougths about sex from teenagers themselves. the rest of the video is done by a doctor and she talk about the methods of contraception and how that there is not only the condom to stop pregnacy's. T his video is also very good because she shows and tells you what to do when putting a condom on and taking one off. She also gives you lots of tips about the condom and other methods of contraception.

This video shows the multiple ways of contraception and how to use them correctly this is useful for young teenagers in learning how to prevent them self from haveing a child.

This fits well with the contraception topic because it shows the correct way to put on a condom and make sure it doesnt break or tear. Also preventing std's in the process.
