Pupils ‘should see explicit sex videos’ (UK)

UK Telegraph 27 Jan 07
Children should be shown explicit videos of masturbation as part of sex education, campaigners said yesterday. Many pupils form impressions of sexual activity from internet pornography and need better lessons at school, said Rebecca Findlay of the Family Planning Association. Sex was still seen as too “embarrassing” to be discussed. “We need to be able to look at someone masturbating and see it not as pornography but as instructional.” Using such images in schools might help lift taboos around sex, she told the Times Educational Supplement.
