Great Britain has long struggled with the highest teenage pregnancy rate in Western Europe. Now a local government initiative in northern England is trying a new and somewhat controversial approach to sex education -- encouraging teenagers to masturbate.
In a new National Health Service leaflet entitled "Pleasure," teenagers are encouraged to exercise their right to "an orgasm a day."
The discussion I am seeing every where with this story is "Is it moral"? Personally I see nothing wrong with Masterbation. However Many religious groups DO.
So, here is my question, would you support the government (US or local) if they decided to come out with a statement like this one, would it go against the thing you are trying to teach your children or allign with them? What are your thoughs about this in general, if nothing else?
Here's the link to the full story...

I think better yet, how about encouraging self-control. Seems no one at all wants to have to show any kind of restraint at all in any area. As a result, we have sky rocketing, obesity, teen pregnancies, drug & alcohol use, abortions, child abuse, domestic abuse and on and on. Pathetic really that no one wants to take personal responsibility for their thoughts, actions etc.
