Case Study 16

You have been asked by the local secondary school to take some lessons for their 15 and 16 year old pupils. The brief is to cover issues of contraception, sexual health and sexually transmitted diseases. In order to get discussions going you ask each pupil to write down a question with the promise that all sensible contributions will be tackled. The first one you pull out is;

    " I have a friend who thinks he might be gay. Could this be a passing phase? My Dad says it is disgusting. What do you think?"
