Gotta love the comments.
UK health officials to students: Get it on!
A revamping of Britain's public sex education course has raised more than just a few eyebrows.
Starting with the idea that sex can be and usually is quite pleasurable, educators are about to embark on a revolutionary (read: honest) new approach to sex ed.
The advice appears in guidance circulated to parents, teachers and youth workers, and is intended to update sex education by telling pupils about the benefits of sexual pleasure. For too long, say its authors, experts have concentrated on the need for "safe sex" and loving relationships while ignoring the main reason that many people have sex, that is, for enjoyment.
The document, called Pleasure, has been drawn up by NHS Sheffield, although it is also being circulated outside the city.
Alongside the slogan "an orgasm a day keeps the doctor away", it says: "Health promotion experts advocate five portions of fruit and veg a day and 30 minutes' physical activity three times a week. What about sex or masturbation twice a week?"
Now that's one odd question to be asked by educational materials.
So, what about it? And, can you imagine the media cacophony we'd be subjected to if such an idea gained popularity here?
