Utah students will now learn about the harmful effect of pornography and the importance of “no means no”, that is if their parents give the school permission.

The two subjects were added to the curriculum during the last legislative session, but in order to take the updated sex ed portion students need permission from their parents.

Under current law, students are required to learn about the physiology of sex and refusal skills, but all other elements are open for parents to exclude.

Topics up for exclusion: sexual abstinence, human sexuality, human reproduction, reproductive anatomy, pregnancy, marriage, childbirth, parenthood, contraception, HIV and AIDs (including modes of transmission), and sexually transmitted diseases.
