Public school to hire porn star for sex ed

The headmaster of a £28,000-a-year private school has indicated he is considering inviting a porn star to teach sex education to his pupils.

Mark Slater, head of The Leys in Cambridge, said students at the historic school need to be aware of the unrealistic nature of the online material. It is vital that children are made aware of the differences between online porn and genuine, fulfilling relationships, he argued.

Referring to the possibility of inviting a porn star to speak to his pupils, Mr Slater, 59, said: “I wouldn’t rule it out simply because of what they have done in their life if I felt that person was going to put across good values and be a good influence.

“I don’t think you can escape porn given that it’s almost impossible to legislate against what goes on the internet.

“There are young people who have got easy access to all sorts of material which wasn’t accessible years ago.

“And I think what we have got to do is empower them with good judgment and make them understand that this kind of thing can be addictive, it can be damaging and a certain amount of willpower is necessary.”

    Sounds like a sensible idea to me but I think the Headmaster may be about 50 years too early. The mystification of sex may (or may not) have had some justification for our primitive forebears but it no longer serves any useful purpose.

    What a clear sighted Headmaster! Pupils need to emerge from school fitted for reality not living in a world of fantasy. If only the same could be done to dispell the culture of Celebrity.
    Well done Mr Slater.
