Sex ed in the UK isn't all about STDs and birth control. A leaflet being handed out in schools by Britain's National Health Service hopes to educate students on the pleasures of sex.
With the slogan "an orgasm a day keeps the doctor away," the material reads:
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?
One of the officials behind the leaflet says that instead of encouraging teen sex, the message could prompt youth to delay having sex until they're sure they will enjoy it. Maybe with the failure of a teen pregnancy prevention program that actually increased the risk of pregnancy, Britain is ready to try just about anything when it comes to sex ed.
While encouraging daily sex might be a little extreme, I find the positive attitude toward sex refreshing and I hope it will encourage responsible and fulfilling practices among teens. What do you make of it?
