I sometimes hear people say that young people need more sex education and stuff. Are teens really that clueless about sex?

I think it's more of a combination of not really knowing about it but thinking they know everything (or at least everything they need to). Couple that with raging hormones and the typical youthful sense of invincibility and you have a dangerous mix.

They're definitely NOT clueless, but they are more than likely misinformed about certain aspects of sex.

For one, most will probably shut their ears the moment they hear, "The best sex is no sex" or "Abstinence is the safest sex". What they need to know more about is the consequences and issues that arise from having sex, and that there are different forms, practices, etc.

I was ignorant af. Then again I never had a massive drive to have sex.

All the girls at my Uni/HS/MS/Ele in Texas/Kansas/Missouri were all nowhere near my taste. If I found the right girl, I may have had interest.

A lot of states prohibit teaching about contraception. Not coincidentally, these states typically have higher teen pregnancy rates.

^ For real

It's 2016 and people can be just as clueless. We have so much knowledge around and everyone waits for it to be handed to them.

They're not clueless. They just have a "shit won't happen to me" mentality.

When abstinence speeches and porn are their first encounters... there is a problem. Luckily for me I was raised to always seek knowledge and to dig deeper. I actually learned mostly from medical books and college sex-ed books (which had a much more positive view on the matter).

I learned about sex way before I started high school.

Clueless about sex? Lmao, not even close, they're clueless on certain things when it comes to sex, but not sex itself.

They might be clueless about the repercussions, risks, etc of sex for example.

A lot of them are clueless about why condoms would be so helpful and why they shouldn't rely on "My pullout game is too strong!" Shit like that.

I don't think it's about ignorance. At that age it's about social acceptance, having friends and relationships. Relationships can go either way. I don't think I need to say more...
