Indicative of how Thai education fails in understanding and accepting a teenager’s natural sexual desires was the 2012 O-NET (Ordinary National Educational Test) for Health Education. Upper high school students were asked, “If you have a sexual urge, what should you do?” The options were:

- Talk to a family member
- Try to sleep
- Go out with a friend of the opposite sex
- Invite a friend to watch a movie
