Don’t stop pupils watching porn… teach them about it!

Teachers should not tell teenagers to stop watching porn, according to U.K government-backed guidelines.

Pupils must instead be taught the difference between real-life relationships and the ‘distorted’ world of X-rated films.

This could involve playing card games in class to decide whether various sexual scenarios belong on ‘Planet Earth’ or ‘Planet Porn’.

Youngsters need to learn that pornography does not reflect real life, often showing ‘perfect’ bodies and exaggerated sexual prowess’, it says.

The document – which has been criticised by an education campaigner for ‘taking children’s childhoods away from them’ – also calls for students to be told about the dangers of ‘sexting’ – sending explicit text messages – and sharing sexual photos and images.

The new guidance has been drawn up by sexual health charity Brook, the PSHE Association and the Sex Education Forum in a bid to give schools advice on how to teach pupils about the topic.

It comes in the wake of a report published by Ofsted last year which found that sex and relationships education (SRE) needs to be improved in more than a third of schools.

I’m all for sex education but this sounds like political indoctrination from the usual subjects and constitutes more government interference in matters that are none of their business.

If parents want to talk to their kids about porn in a non-judgmental way, I’d encourage it. If they’re to be taught the party line of the Nordic Model gang, I’d say it would be no more educational than watching porn itself.

Give kids a little credit. By the time they care enough to even watch porn they probably have already figured out that it’s entertainment, not instruction. Duh.
