Kernow King Delivers Safe Sex Message

A new safe-sex video is launched, hoping to help keep Cornwall's teenage pregnancy rates falling.
The number among 15 to 24 year olds fell 15% last year.
STIs like chlamydia are down too.
Now a film written by Kernow King and urging youngsters to talk to teachers is being shown in schools across the Duchy.
Kelly from Troon starred in it: "I feel proud of myself just because my sister's at that young age now where she needs to know everything and she goes on social networking sites a lot so hopefully she'll see it and pass it on to her friends and they'll stop being as naive as they are being."
Kelly adds it would have been useful when she was younger: "It would've been a lot clearer in knowing what to do and where to go but we weren't told really. Younger children really kind of need to know about it more and the way to publicise it is through video because most kids these days use social networking sites."
The Kernow King said: "I think humour's a great way of overcoming any serious issue, regardless of what it is. The video's a flashback of my first love, fictional, and our first experience together but importantly I wanted it to be able to encourage debate."
You can listen to excerpts from the video here:
