The Doctors weigh in on the app Juicebox, that lets teens ask questions and share experiences anonymously from their phones – even the most embarrassing inquiries will be responded to by the app’s “sexperts” within 24 hours.
With only 24 states and the District of Columbia requiring that public school teach sex education classes, and many parents and kids afraid to discuss sex with each other, is an app the way to get the information to teens?
“As a second line maybe. Sex education should start at home with the parents and in school, and if there is something you didn’t get between those two, maybe you go to an app and fill in the gaps,” Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says.
Urologist Dr. Jennifer Berman questions if some teens might not be “emotionally or sexually mature” enough for the app.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork commends the concept, saying, “Let’s say you are in a state where you get no sex education, and your parents are too uncomfortable to have a conversation, you need answers! You don’t want to get them from your buddies who don’t know anything. So, I think some sort of resource, if done appropriately can be beneficial.”
