So I was glancing over my usual hard news blog when I came across an new and interesting “Orgasm A Day” British health campaign. Say what? Well apparently there’s a movement in Britain to get students to masturbate to fulfillment regularly:
A National Health Service leaflet is advising school pupils that they have a “right” to an enjoyable sex life and that regular intercourse can be good for their cardiovascular health… Alongside the slogan “an orgasm a day keeps the doctor away”, it says: “Health promotion experts advocate five portions of fruit and veg a day and 30 minutes’ physical activity three times a week. What about sex or masturbation twice a week?” (via the Huffington Post)
This of course got some family groups upset because they’re concerned it’s only going to encourage underage sex. Personally I think the family groups are looking at this all wrong - change a few words and suddenly this is a great way for students to feel comfortable with their first sex toys! Sex toys are generally safer than sex and, especially for females, a more certain route to orgasm than sexual intercourse with inexperienced, over-eager and inattentive young men. Of course that does present another problem – once young ladies get hooked on the joys of their favorite toys, how do you get them to give them up and play with the boys? There has to be a downside to too much mechanical lovin’ out there somewhere…
Oh yeah, we could be headed toward planetary annihilation at the hands of aliens – at least according to the Space Pope.
