British council urges teenagers to get busy jerking off

Busy Jerking OffThe UK is habitually at the bottom of lists when it measures up against anything in Europe, but for one thing it is top of the charts by some way – the problem of teenage pregnancy. Britain has more pregnant teenagers than any other European country.

Now a local government initiative in northern England is trying a new, and to say the least, controversial approach to sex education, by encouraging teenagers to masturbate.

In a new National Health Service leaflet entitled "Pleasure," teenagers are encouraged to exercise their right to "an orgasm a day."

Health promotion ‘experts’ advocate five portions of fruit and vegetables a day and 30 minutes' physical activity three times a week. The leaflet goes on to suggest; “What about sex or masturbation twice a week?" Is that with or without the accompanying fruit or vegetables?

Sheffield's Primary Care Trust has happily circulated the leaflet to parents, teenagers and youth workers in and around the city. Not surprisingly, it has caused quite a stir. Many people say they believe it will encourage teenagers to engage in underage or unsafe sex – as if they weren’t already.

It will come as no surprise that author Steven Slack, disagrees. He explained that the leaflet does the opposite, (i.e. it discourages teenage sex) and, in fact, encourages teenagers to delay losing their virginity until they are certain they will enjoy the experience.

Slack also said that by encouraging teenagers to experiment with sex, the pamphlet could dispel the myth that "there is only one way to have proper sex.'" Psychologists who specialise in sexuality and family health in the United States generally supported the message, but disagreed about this particular method to reach minors.

"These are still minors, and the parents, even if they are supportive of the idea, might be a bit scandalized to see their children being talked to directly without taking the parents' consent into account," psychologist and columnist Pepper Schwartz wrote in an e-mail to ABCNews.com.

British County Councils have a long history of allowing strange and sometimes bizarre agendas and activities to see the light of day. One council famously backed a British ‘environmental artist’ with a £50,000 grant to carry out an experimental work of ‘art’. It involved kicking a tin can from one end of the town to the other and filming the reactions of the general public.

It makes a leaflet inciting young people to masturbate seem positively conservative.

About the Author

Hi, I'm Joseph O'Connor. I am a twenty-six year old man from Texas, USA. I fell into writing about sex toys when I was looking for a way to both try new things and explore my body... Things progressed rapidly. It turns out there aren't many (straight) men that can talk about sex the way I do without getting downright ridiculous. I'm always reading more/learning about the human body and sexual response and always looking for ways to improve my sex life (and that of those I come in contact with).
