Touching your private parts IS pleasurable. That is the whole point of reproduction. Shuck off this religious "guilt" and be a human.

There are many people posting in this thread who seem to be in denial. If the kids don't get a hint from the teacher in the class setting (a link in the OP actually says the whole education wouldn't be very hardcore), then surely a year, two or three later they'll get "educated" by their peers. If you don't believe that, please read up on studies done and prevalence of various practices in different age groups.
There is nothing wrong with this education of it's done properly.

If a 5-6yr old girl, told their friends that "Mommy and daddy have been explaining that if I touch my Minnie Mouse it feels good" in the privacy of the girls own home and said friends parents overheard this - The police would be called and that girls parents would be facing charges of child sexual abuse and pedophelia(sp?) - So why the f&%k should it be okay for strangers in our educational system, to do it!?

Some people seem to think that one of the proposals is to teach children HOW to masturbate. The proposal is to teach them WHAT masturbation is.

Whatever happened to letting children BE children for as long as they can?, why are they in such a rush to adultify every youngster these days?
I was also taught that masturbation is WRONG and SINFUL and all that good jazz. Had I had ANY education on it being okay to do, I guarantee you I would not have started having sex at 9.
