It’s hard to argue that “an orgasm a day keeps the doctor away”, but is it something we should tell our kids? Well that’s what the National Health Service in the UK is doing according to the Times Online. What vexes me is why tell kids this and not adults? Moreover, why can’t the U.S surgeon general say that to adults in America?
Well, back to the Brits first.
Everything about this campaign to promote delayed sexual activity in kids is questionable but one has to applaud the British government for at least trying to take the stigma out of nookie, something they’ve been working at since at least 2007, when a national conference about “pleasure principals” was held. Still, consider that the title of the document reportedly given to kids is called “Pleasure”. Pleasure. An item of literature given to kids is called “Pleasure” and its about sex? Yikes.
