On Wednesday night, "The Daily Show's" Jordan Klepper filed a report on the state of sex education in Sin City. Students in Clark County, Nevada are lobbying for better sex education so they can make safer more informed decisions about sex. (According to Advocates for Youth, comprehensive sex education can create positive outcomes: increasing the use of protection, and over the long term lowering the risk of STIs and pregnancy.)
