As Long as it's Education

I think it's time we reconsider the popular belief that our neighbor to the north is just like America but boring. From Cnews:

Parents opposed to New Brunswick's sex education curriculum say the program's resource material includes Internet links to pornographic websites.

A group of parents met Tuesday with Education Minister Madeleine Dube to outline their objections to the sex-ed curriculum for grades 6, 7 and 8, which includes discussions on oral sex, mutual masturbation and sexual pleasure. The parents also presented Dube with a list of websites for youth from a reference document for the program, including one site that offers links to an online sex-toy store that sells "bedroom adventure gear."

"The resource document is entitled Beyond Basics," said Dr. Carolyn Barry, a Fredericton-area physician and one of the leading opponents of the new curriculum.

"It should be called beyond belief."
I'll say. I guess Beyond Basics is like Spanish II. Once you teach 12-year-olds how to perform oral sex and masturbate mutually it's only practical you give them the bedroom adventure gear to enhance the experience.
