Compared to many other countries the Netherlands has one of the lowest teenage pregnancy rates and scores low on STIs. Young people are generally well informed on sexuality and contraceptive use is high. We are often asked about sex education in the Netherlands, and how we have become so open minded about sex. Our film 'Dutch Lessons in Love' has tried to answer these questions.
The family should be the ideal environment for children to grow into confident adults, ready to have healthy relationships and families of their own. But it doesn’t always work like this. Rutgers helps boys and men in their roles as sons and brothers, husbands and fathers.
Young people are naturally curious about sex and sexuality. Rutgers asserts the right of young people to receive adequate education to make well-informed choices in relationships and their sexual lives. Comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) means providing information and guidance about the physical and emotional aspects of growing up and starting relationships.
The documentary 'Sex in Class' in Great Britain has proven that young people need to counterbalance what they 'learn' from porn. They need to learn about their body and how it works, boys and girls should learn to share views and ideas, and girls in particular need to learn how to stand up for themselves. Has the time come for the Dutch Approach?
