This paper is a rejoinder to an earlier article critical of today's sexuality education. The major theoretical contentions of the earlier article are examined and refuted. The inaccuracies and myths used to buttress the critical thesis are documented. The positive values that more accurately describe sexuality education are delineated. The paper concludes that in its primary values and its observed effects, contemporary sexuality education represents the essence of democratic society.
