The article discusses the importance of sex education to students in the U.S. Not only should sex education convey the correct information, biological and psychological, but ethical ideals should be instilled. Traditionally, men were allowed to do things for which women were more severe punished. However, this seems to be changing somewhat. Those who teach in colleges sometimes hear girls complain that some men are too forward, they are too insistent, they will not take no for an answer, they make themselves boorish by their advances. Frequently after they have secured what they have been trying to get, they lose interest in this particular girl as a serious possible future mate.
