The Problem, Not The Solution
"Sex education" is not the solution to the problem of the epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases sweeping Britain. It is that problem. No one older than seven or eight can now be in the slightest doubt as to where babies come from, and no one older than 11 or 12 can now be in the slightest doubt as to how to put on a condom. Yet ... well, we all know yet what. When something is as spectacularly unsuccessful as this, then, at the very least, it ought to be discontinued as a matter of the utmost urgency.
