Is Insufficient Information Really the Problem?

A parenting column in The New York Times discusses a presentation offered at the Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center by a "sex educator," first to teens, and then to their parents.

One snippet of the piece in particular caught my eye:

The teenage group discussed nitty-gritty information more than the adults, including how dental dams could be used for infection protection during oral sex and how the sugar-flavored condoms that were used for oral sex should not be used for vaginal sex because they can cause bacterial infection. 

When Ms. Levkoff asked where they got their information, many mentioned health courses at their middle and high schools as being very good.

They also said they got information from the media, the Internet and friends.

The sexual envelope pushers in our society -- organizations like Planned Parenthood, for example -- inveigh constantly about the need for "comprehensive sex education."

But judging from the snippet above, it seems obvious that there's plenty of "information" out there -- yet fallout from the sexual revolution (like one in four teen girls being infected with STD's) hasn't improved one iota. 

Has the "comprehensive sex education" crowd ever considered that the problem isn't that teens lack any "information" about any aspect of sex -- rather, it's that they're being exposed to it without any moral or ethical context?
