From the Paper:

" Cindy Patton, in Fatal Advice: How Safe-Sex Education Went Wrong, argues that the more graphic and explicit efforts of safe-sex educators were simply the result of an increase in HIV infection among young people. The previous, more conservative educational approach was both ineffective and contradictory for all youth, and especially for gay youth who most needed such education. That earlier approach advocated abstinence, use of condoms, and compassion for those who have HIV, and was aimed at heterosexual youth (34; 62). The "national pedagogy" controlling such education believed that graphic safe sex education would promote sexual activity among the youth, and that gay-oriented safe sex education would promote homosexuality (117). As a result, with respect to gay youth, the highest risk category, education was not only ineffective but hard to find."
