There are major differences in beliefs about human sexuality among the approximately 30,000 Christian denominations, sects, and faith groups across the world. There are also differences among religions and among secular belief systems. One particularly contentious topic is the teaching of "sex ed" in schools. Beliefs range from:
- Teaching only that sex should be restricted to married couples,
- Discussing the full range of common sexual activities with effective techniques for preventing pregnancy and the transmission of sexually transmitted infections (STI) such as Chlamydia, Genital Herpes, HIV/AIDS, Syphlis, and Trichomoniasis and over 15 others, They are spread via bacteria, parasites, yeast, or viruses. 1
