Planned Parenthood Says Promiscuity "Nothing to Worry About"

On Planned Parenthood’s Facebook page for teens, they posted an article answering the question: “Is promiscuity a bad thing?”

According to Planned Parenthood, “there’s nothing bad or unhealthy about having a big number of sexual partners.”

Grammar critique aside, there actually are several health risks to having a large number of sexual partners. Some of the major risk factors for HPV and cervical cancer is multiple sexual partners and having sex at an early age. Even the Guttmacher Institute, the former research arm of Planned Parenthood, considered “a person to be at direct risk for STDs if he or she had had two or more partners during the 12 months preceding the interview” during one of their research studies.

Additionally, a person with low self esteem has been shown to engage in sexual relations earlier, and engage in riskier, unprotected sex with multiple partners. That does not sound like “nothing bad or unhealthy” to me.

The article continues, saying that as long as a girl feels “satisfied and confident” with her sexual decisions, she is okay.
