The San Joaquin Valley is home to some of the state’s highest rates of teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.

The California Healthy Youth Act, which went into affect last year, aims to change that, and mandates schools teach comprehensive, medically accurate and unbiased sex education.

The Bee is doing a series on sex education and teen pregnancy, in partnership with the USC Center for Health Journalism.

On Tuesday, at the Central California Women’s Conference, we asked 20 women what they wished they would have learned about sex when they were younger.
