For Oz students, oral sex “has become the new kissing”January 31st, 2010 - 4:39 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, January 31 (ANI): Teachers at a primary school in Tasmania, Australia are worried over students talking about having oral sex.
Roz Madsen from the Australian Education Union said that the teachers are increasingly overhearing kids in grades as low as 4 and 5 boast about having oral sex, using explicit language.
Madsen added that teachers “felt helpless” at how to deal with the problem, The Mercury reported.
“The students are talking about what they have done on the weekend, sexual experiences that they are having. It seems to be happening at earlier ages,” News.com.au quoted her as saying.
She added: “They are talking about oral sex and saying they are doing it. Who knows if they are or are just boasting, I hope they are not.
“And the language as well, it’s quite explicit, nothing is left to the imagination.”
Also, Family Planning Tasmania’s chief executive Sue Williams, said: “Oral sex has become the new kissing. It’s easy and you don’t get pregnant.”
Family Planning, the AEU and other groups including Parents and Friends and Relationships Australia will voice for sex and relationship education to be part of the school curriculum in March. (ANI)
