This is public service posting. I am trying to limit the amount of smutty innuendo that is typically generated when a noteworthy news source broaches the subject of ‘thingy’.
The Torygraph, peace be upon it, this morning has an article about sex education in primary schools. This is a very serious subject, so let me clarify some of the points that they make to prevent an outbreak of sniggering and other generally immature behaviour. I will take the unintentionally ambiguous sections of the report in turn.
“ … may be employing classroom materials that cover subjects such as orgasms and foreplay.”
‘Materials’ refers to printed, descriptive items. It does not mean any kind of object used to achieve orgasm. The British education system is founded upon the principles of children being denied any avenue of enjoyment, and has worked successfully on this premise for many years.
“One book for children aged just five contains cartoon images of a couple having sexual intercourse and another compares sex to skipping.”
The skipping reference is entirely to do with (and you would know this if you read the entire article) the sort of activity that “you can’t do all day”.
Is that clear? There are no other similarities.
I have not skipped for over 40 years. The last time that I did, I fell over and got a nosebleed, and took several minutes to extricate myself from the rope.
“The Christian Institute – a charity that promotes Biblical teaching – said parents were being kept in the dark”.
There is nothing wrong with this. Some people are shy. How and when they conduct ‘thingy’ is entirely their own concern. On balance (no innuendo intended), it is probably better that they conduct these activities in their own homes in the dark than in full daylight in the middle of a nearby traffic island, Pamela.
