      And Republican squeamishness about discussing intimacy with children, and their insistence upon 'abstinence' education is probably exactly counterproductive, and leads to a greater number of rapes, rather than a smaller number.

      Where progressives have likewise fallen short is on focusing entirely upon sexual mechanics and prophylactics, rather than pushing for more comprehensive classes that discuss the psychological and emotional aspects of intimacy and healthy relationships.
