What Does Mean?


We’re happy you stopped by 216Teens. Although this website was created especially for teenagers, we welcome parents and guardians too. We think it’s great that you want to know what websites your teens are visiting for information about sex and reproductive health.

We know that there are tons of places on the internet where kids can find unhealthy and downright dangerous information about sex. In fact, that’s why we’re here. Our goal is to provide age-appropriate and medically accurate sex education materials for parents and teens to educate and motivate teens to avoid sexual health risks. We also want to encourage them to utilize trusted local healthcare services and resources.

We understand that many parents feel awkward talking about sex to their kids. Here are some sex education materials for parents to help you be more confident and comfortable: Our Top 10 Tips for Talking to Your Teens About Sex and Resources for Parents. Don’t worry that your teens will think you’re saying it’s okay to have sex because you’re talking to them about it. And remember – just because your teens are curious about sex, it doesn’t mean they’re sexually active.

Drop us a line if you have any questions, concerns or would like to get involved in sharing this campaign with the teens in your family and local community.
