I note that some christians are against sex education, particularly about gays, as it will apparently corrupt the delicate minds of the kids, bla.
Well perhaps this incident in Australia turns the tables on that argument. This bizarre pentecostal sex education happened in a public school in Victoria to year 7 students. It gives entirely pre-20th century even views of women, telling year 7 girls that having sex with multiple partners will destroy any chance of a close relationship in the future.
It said that a chemical called oxytocin, is released when "two people touch", and was produced by women more than men, making them needier.
"If a woman becomes physically close and hugs a guy for 20 seconds it will trigger the bonding process, creating a greater desire to be near him. Then if the guy wants to take the relationship further it will become harder for her to say no," the booklet said.
It warned that having too many relationships could break "this special chemical bond" and harm a woman's capacity to form future relationships.
"Having multiple sex partners is almost like tape that loses its stickiness after being applied and removed multiple times. So the more you have the harder it is to bond to the next," it said.
The booklet was given out during a weekly youth program run by Epic Youth, which is part of a Melbourne Pentecostal megachurch called CityLife, and was delivered during school hours in June.
A mother of one of the students, who did not want to be named, was shocked when her daughter came home with the booklet last week, after attending the classes for a month. The school had not sought parental consent to deliver the program. more
