I find this very encouraging, sex is a fact of life and it needs to be discussed openly with children as soon as they have the mental facilities to
start to understand it. I live in the borough of southwark in london which has one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in europe. I know these
girls, i went to primary school with them and see them every day. In many cases it is down to ignorance, although the high levels of social
deprivation play a major factor in this.
It seems perfect sense to 'promote' masturbation, it satisfies sexual urges without running the risk of pregnancy or disease. I think the fact that
teenage pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases increased in the states during dubyas term while abstinence was promoted as the preferred option
speaks for itself, dont you?
