America's battle over sex education could be boiled down to one question: Would you let your teenager spend the night with his or her sweetheart in your home?
When 32 American parents were asked this question, 29 said no, including one mother who blurted out, "No way, Jose!" said Amy Schalet, author of the new book "Not Under My Roof: Parents, Teens and the Culture of Sex."
"I do not think Americans should emulate the Dutch. I don't think that's possible, even if it were desirable," said Ms. Schalet, an assistant professor of sociology at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
