I came across this article on Gulf News during a day long meeting I'm having today! This will last for two days before I go on vacation! I naturally planned to start my trip by heading to Jordan, but after reading this I have a not-so-mysterious drive to go to London, and actually settle there for good!
Their National Health Service body is so KOOOOooOL!
There you go.. Have "fun" reading:
London: The National Health Service (NHS) is telling school pupils they have a "right" to an enjoyable sex life and that it is good for their health. A health service leaflet says experts concentrate too much on the need for safe sex and loving relationships, and not enough on the pleasure it can bring. But family campaigners condemned the guidance, saying it encouraged underage sex and could increase rates of sexually-transmitted diseases.The advice, which also claims regular sex is good for cardiovascular health, has been circulated to parents, teachers and youth workers. It came to light just a week after it emerged that teenagers who took part in a Dh35.74 million (almost 10 million dollars) government initiative to reduce teenage pregnancies were more than twice as likely to fall pregnant as other girls.
The scheme tried to persuade girls not to get pregnant by handing out condoms and teaching them about sex. The NHS leaflet has been drawn up by Sheffield primary care trust. Its author, Steve Slack, director of the Centre for HIV and Sexual Health at NHS Sheffield, defended it by saying the advice could encourage young people to delay sex.But Anthony Seldon, master of Wellington College, Berkshire, who introduced classes in emotional well-being at the public school, described the approach as "deplorable". Dr Trevor Stammers, of the pressure group Family and Youth Concern,said the leaflet would encourage "risky" behaviour and an increase in sexually transmitted diseases. "It is unbelievable that this is being sent to schools" he said. "I'd like to know what scientific evidence there is to back this up. There are an awful lot of overpaid and under-occupied health promotion officers around who are obsessed with sex." He added that inciting underage sex was "nothing less than encouraging child abuse".
I'm not quite sure how to react to this! I mean, is this just over the top, or do you think that this is actually the right way to go aboutit?!... Any thoughts?
