This online activity challenges teens to think carefully about what they might do in a number of risky sexual situations through a series of interactive scenarios.
Kenny is excited to support and partner with The National Campaign in complimentary campaigns that drive home the point that sex has consequences. He states, "We have a major problem. Nearly three out of ten girls in the United States get pregnant before age 20. That's two thousand girls every day. We have the highest teen pregnancy and birth rates in the fully developed world. 1 in 10 babies in the United States is born to a teen mother. And teen pregnancy is a problem that is 100% preventable."
Pugh's bestselling title, "Can You Do It Standing Up? A Different Position on Relationships" has spawned countless media appearances and speaking opportunities with media such as: BlackEnterprise.com, HLN, The Tom Joyner Morning Show and several others that has allowed Kenny to elaborate on his own personal choice and explain why he believes it's the best approach for unmarried individuals to take in order to have the best outcome in a marital relationship.
