So is this biology-textbook-x-rated, or porn-x-rated?

Ah, biology-textbook-x-rated.

Anyone able to check out what the "advice on how to lose their virginity" is? I'm betting it's something like "wear a condom" or "be respectful to your partner" that some ninny got worked up over.

I'm not even going to bother mentioning the pictures. Any teen with an iPhone has access to all the x-rated shiat they want. Parents who give their kids iPhones have officially forfeited the right to be outraged when their kid sees porn.

As a conservative christian I gotta say.... this seems like a good idea, and the information seems useful and important.

Are we going to pretend our kids are NOT going to ever interact with their own or others bodies? Why not have the information on hand.

And if I have raised my kids right, there is nothing there that is a threat. If I have raised them wrong... well at least there is a good information source out there.

That is most certainly not the way to lose your virginity.
 
2012-10-24 10:07:51 AM  
If we can just nip this "virginity" thing in the bud before people suffer too long with it, we could solve a lot of the world's problems.

A frustrated, horny teenager goes to war, gets in fights, and becomes emo. A teenager with something on the side and a joint? Not so much.

Don't believe me? Start comparing Holland and Pakistan.

Plenty of kids who were raised right could use some info about sex.

Along with the 'wear a condom' and 'be respectful' advice it also includes a link to stiles project.

" ... how to lose their virginity"?
Are the kids it doing it the old fashioned way by farking? If not, then it's no wonder they need instruction.

After having actually looking at the site, it seems pretty reasonable. Most of it reads like this:

"Finally, sex isn't like in the films, it is sticky, messy, clumsy - you will bang heads, fart or get cramp at the wrong moment, but it should be fun."

I can understand why the fun-haters don't like it.
 
2012-10-24 10:09:21 AM  
I would say that, if anything, that app is guilty of being grossly responsible.
 
2012-10-24 10:10:17 AM  
They're only complaining because it's government-funded. A few years back the series Embarassing Bodies (and for those in the US who haven't seen it, it's because it showed you EVERYTHING, literally warts and all, so there's no way it would be on any channel over there), which showed regularly before the 9pm watershed with full on nudity because it was educational as opposed to sexual, had a mini-series for Teens. They set up a similar website, it was heralded as a fantastic idea, useful, informative etc. Privately funded from advertising revenues.

/won't somebody think of the children!?!?!?!?!
//but only if it's paid for by the state
 
2012-10-24 10:10:35 AM  
I dunno, maybe this is the nerd in me talking, but I really wish sites like that wouldn't ret to be 'fresh and hip' and use things like 'Girl's Bits' and 'Boy's Bits' and such to describe their sections. Treat it professionally; as a teacher I find students respond at the maturity level you speak to them at. Speak as a mature adult, and they'll treat the subject maturely. Treat it like slang, and they'll just giggle and roll their eyes and miss the point.
 
2012-10-24 10:10:39 AM  
That virginity advice is bunk. It's just ladder theory all dressed up in Government-ese. That crap doesn't work at all. They might as well be telling guys to get big floppy hats with giant feathers in them and call themselves "Enigma" or some crap.

5 posts in a farker is looking for advice on how to lose their virginity... I honestly thought it would be the Boobies...

I guess the rest of you are satisfied with sitting at home masturbating alone or are still busy reading the advice on how to lose your virginity...
 
2012-10-24 10:12:13 AM  
If the advice on losing your virginity included was tips about how to find and talk to girls with low self esteme and recipies for deceptively strong drinks I could see people having a problem. I kinda doubt the government would share those secrets which are probably useful in to help spys score and recover valuable inteligence.

Seems a lot more than used to be in my textbooks, as far as I remember. While naked people were shown, I don't think they had open genital pictures in anything more than drawings and diagrams. Still, while I'm very pro sex-ed, a quick glance seems to show they're not teaching much but naughty bits are fun and don't play too roughly with them. Still, I suppose the comparison shots of many different body shapes and what not will help kids understand they're within the norm even if they don't match what they see in porn.

I agree with you on that. I think the only thing I have an issue with is that its more of a government involvement then a family issue. This is something that is, again coming from my opinion, a personal issue that should be left to parents talking to their kids.

Now I can see where a parent might use this to help with that talk.

I think the complaint is about the "x-rated" pictures of naked adults for teens. Teens don't want to see adults, they want to see other teens.

In other news, pornography and nudity are now the same thing.
 
2012-10-24 10:24:00 AM  
If I was still a teenager, the last place I'd look for advice is on an app the government made for us.

I still remember our sex-ed video in middle school..."The boys have the baseball bat, the girls have a catcher's mitt" which actually still doesn't make sense. But come on, don't people have Google? We had no internet, basically no sex ed, and we somehow still figured out how condoms work. In fact, I'm still baffled that anyone can't figure them out. I mean... well, it's just pretty self-explanatory.

"Run your fingers gently over her belly, down her sides, under her breasts - for a lovely tickley torture."

"When you are making out, copping a feel can feel nice and a bit naughty, but remember they are breasts not stress balls..."

"Most women get more pleasure from being stimulated manually with hands or orally by kissing and licking around the vulva, as the majority of women find it hard to orgasm (to cum) through penetration alone.

Now, contrary to what you hear in porn, a vagina shouldn't feel tight - as a girl gets turned on her internal muscles relax (and she will get nice and wet), if her muscles are tight, its a sign she's not quite relaxed or comfortable and not properly turned on."


Seems like that's the sort of advice they mean, something to help teens fumble through their first awkward sexual encounters. Better than having them learn just from porn, and they are all watching porn, but you could see why certain types would be offended that it was made available to their kids by the government.

Because you prudes can't seem to decide to give them even A-through-E, at ANY point, yes, yes they do.

When and how can be debated. But "not telling them ever" isn't an option, you twat.

Considering that kids these day use the "hershey highway" to avoid pregnancy, and then still refer to themselves as virgins who have only "fooled around a little bit".. they could use SOME direction beyond birds/ bees and flower pollination. Wait.. in the Hershey Highway scenario.. the girls ARE still officially virgins, but are the guys?
 
2012-10-24 10:50:17 AM  
Hold on...

Your child has a computerized mobile phone and you're worried about a government piece of software that has pictures of the human anatomy? Have some people just NEVER heard of Google? It's much faster (and more explicit) to go to Google and type something stupid like "womens mammeries" then it is to download this software and look at some photos.

Holy shiat. If I ever saw the pictures of the penis and vagina that they used (under the diagram when selecting the genitals), I wouldn't WANT to lose my virginity. It's like they decided to use the worst looking vagina's and penis's to try and scare kids from sex.

You'd still look, though. Remember being a teenager? If it had anything to do with sex it had priority over just about everything else in your life.
