Porn belongs in the classroom, says Danish professor

A leading sexologist in Denmark has called for pornography to be shown in the classroom, claiming that starting a debate about the industry could help teenagers become “conscientious and critical consumers” who are able to tell the difference between pornography and the reality of sexual relationships.

Prof Christian Graugaard of Aalborg University caused a furore in Denmark when he suggested on public television that pornography should be shown in schools. This was preferable, he told the Danish public broadcaster DR, to sex education classes that were “boring and technical, where you roll a condom onto a cucumber”.

Graugaard’s proposal is not simply following in the long tradition of sexually permissive Scandinavia. It is, he insists, a sensible way of teaching teenagers that pornography is nothing like real sex.

“My proposal is to critically discuss pornography with 8th and 9th graders [age 15 – the legal age of consent in Denmark – and 16 respectively] as part of a sensible didactic strategy, carried out by trained teachers,” he told the Guardian…

      The problem is ususally that it remains in the system as an addiction.

    And Danish professors should be horsewhipped.

    And all of the actors and actresses should look like Kathleen Wynn, Maxine Waters, Harry Reed and Henry Waxman.

    If that doesn’t turn the little buggers off of porn, nothing will. Some may even choose to remain celibate.
