A study conducted by LELO.com carried out research to identify the top 10 countries with the best sex education. Initially, countries where sex education is obligatory were identified.

The study then collected data on education levels, STDs, teenage pregnancy, and abortion rates for each country.

Poland tops the list of countries with the best sex education, with a composite score of 67.1. The quality of sex education in Poland contributes to having one of the lowest STD rates and second-lowest abortion rates on the list, highlighting the success of comprehensive sex education here.
