Here's another charming story about English life. Where do they get the people who think up these things??
"CHILDREN as young as 10 are being shown how to use condoms as part of sex education lessons in primary schools. The lessons, run by Southeast Sheffield Education Action Zone, include a demonstration using a plastic phallus of how to fit a condom. The scheme has caused anger among family campaigners who believe the children year 6 primary pupils are too young to learn about contraception. Telling them about reproduction is one thing, said Robert Whelan, director of Family and Youth Concern. But demonstrating on condoms is just gross at that age. Children should be protected from this sort of thing.
