Porn as Sex Ed


Do you remember your sex ed class? Yeah, me neither. I went to Catholic school, so I vaguely remember a virgin lay teacher (yes, she proudly told us she was a virgin. At 42.) talking to us about sexual morality and saving ourselves for Jesus or our husband, which worked so well that two girls were preggers by spring semester.

I assume sex ed has improved in the public sector, yes? Or at least you have a somewhat erudite understanding of biology? (I remember a roommate in college telling me proudly, “Did you know, guys have two holes, and we have three!”, as if she had just solved the Pythagorean Theorem. I congratulated her and wondered how she had managed to go through life without being potty-trained.)

And now, with the onslaught of online porn, our future generation is learning sex ed at warp speed – forget ass hole, how about the glory hole? And boobies aren’t nutritive lactating resources for newborns, they’re for pearl necklaces! Well, one school in London has decided to take matters into its own hands and invite the dirty neighbor into its classroom – i.e., discuss online porn in the context of sex ed (you can read it here.) Basically, what is the bloody difference (pip-pip, cheerio and all that) between what you see at 11:30PM when your parents have gone to bed, versus what’s really going to go down in the backseat of mom’s minivan in a few days-weeks-months. I think it’s wonderful. In fact, I would recommend this class to all the male patrons who frequent The Shack Bar & Grill Fridays and Saturday nights. They could use a few pointers.
