You have got to love Spain, people. Some time ago, the government of Extremadura instituted classes that teach using your body for sexual pleasure (including masturbation) for schoolchildren 14 years of age and older. Before long, the government of Andalucia expressed its support for this program and vowed to introduce it as soon as possible in its schools. The campaign is called "The Pleasure Is in Your Hands."
As if that weren't funny enough, a conservative organization began an alternative campaign, fighting for the sexuality and masturbation classes to be abolished. This campaign is titled "Clean Hands." For now, all they have been able to cause is a lot of chuckles.
Spain's progressive attitude to sexuality is all the more surprising if we remember that until 35 years ago it was a Fascist Catholic dictatorship. It's truly striking how fast and how well the people of Spain have been able to overcome their heritage of repression and move on to a healthy attitude towards sexuality. In the US, where in most high schools you can't even show a condom to 17-year-olds without a bunch of old, repressed idiots having a conniption over it, Spain's example sounds like something out of this world.
