This Sex Expert Thinks Primary School Children Should Be Told About Masturbation

Might have made things easier.

Sex education is always a murky subject when you’re a kid because it’s just completely weird and scary learning about all this stuff and then actually doing it for the first time. Don’t tell me you want nervous.

One so called sex expert thinks that it will be a lot easier to normalise these things though if we start talking to kids about masturbation as early as primary school. Speaking to This Morning, Kate Dawson said the following:

I think it’s really important to start talking about how it’s normal to explore your own body in a private space, if that’s something you want to do, and that it can feel nice.

It’s because we’re meeting a lot of young girls particularly who are absolutely disgusted by their genitalia. We do this activity where we show a very realistic kind of illustration of the vulva and the penis. We take the penis out and there’s a big laugh, everyone finds it really funny, and then we take the vulva out – you sometimes hear, ‘Oh my god, that’s disgusting’.

I think there’s a lot of pressure on young girls to have genitals to look a certain way.

The only place we get to see other people’s genitals is porn and people in porn are hired because of the type of bodies they have.

Boys are definitely more comfortable talking about it.

But when we’re talking about self-pleasure and what it’s like, and what might feel good for a person who has a vulva or a penis, it’s really important for the person of the opposite gender I guess, can have an idea of what it might be like.

Because sometimes we’re talking to young girls and they’re being really badly hurt by their partners who don’t understand you have to be quite gentle with that part of the body. Physically hurt. Where their vagina might be bruised or cut even.

Sometimes they just don’t want to make their partner feel bad because they don’t want to embarrass them so they don’t say anything. What we do, it’s really about giving people the skills so they can say, ‘This is what I like and this is what I don’t like’ and how to communicate that.

I mean she had kinda got a point there. Sex is an important and natural part of life so why is it such a taboo subject for young children? Growing up and being an awkward teenager is hard enough, might be easier for our kids if we normalise sex so it isn’t completely weird for them on top of everything else? Just saying it’s an idea.
