Sex, Etc., a website providing comprehensive sex ed information geared toward young people, offers a more youth-friendly resource called “Sex in the States”. Youth can click on the interactive map to learn their state’s laws and policies on topics ranging from HIV/AIDS testing to age of consent for sex and from sexting to the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.
