Watch John Oliver Humorously Explain the Importance of Sex Education
August 13, 2015

In this segment from HBO's Last Week Tonight, Oliver points out that the range of laws on sex education from state to state means that students across the country receive different levels of information, with some receiving incorrect information or messages of shame and fear.
