Principal Who Plans to Hire Adult Film Star to Teach Sex-Ed Is Brilliant

by Ericka Sóuter

XXXTalk about a progressive teaching plan. A high school principal at a private school in England wants porn stars to teach sex education to students. This will initially freak out any parent -- myself included. It's outrageous, to be sure, but brilliant too. Here's why.

No one knows more about sex than someone who has sex for a living. I know. I know. Who the heck would want a porn star to teach their kids anything? Most of us can't even fathom agreeing to having a known porn star teaching anything nor acting as a role model in any way, shape, or form. But one thing that I have learned in my five short years as a parent is to broaden my perspective. There is no longer one time-honored/tested way to do things these days. Who knows about the dangers of sex better than a porn star? In a way, it’s like asking a champion boxer for boxing tips ... well, kind of.

Principal Mark Slater sees a real value in the lessons a "pro" could provide. Certainly listening to someone who has to navigate such a dangerous, sex-filled industry would have an impact. I am sure every single student would show up for this particular guest lecture just to get a glimpse of a porn star. But wide-eyed fascination is only half of it. She (or he, I suppose) can provide real-life examples of what can happen if you don't protect yourself. 

I know many of us would rather our kids just not have intercourse at all. But truth of the matter is, kids are having sex. Even worse, they are having unprotected sex. Sure, those health textbooks go through a laundry lists of diseases, but that still doesn't scare enough teens into abstinence or using a condom. This could work better than traditional sex ed lessons have been. Why not give it a chance.

Would you be okay with a porn star teaching your kid sex ed?

No I wouldn't and here's why; I consider myself pretty knowledgable when it comes to birth control, good values, and open communication, and I didn't have to become a porn star to learn these things.

I would imagine a porn star could teach a thing or two about different positions, toys, how to act it up for the camera, etc. hhhmmm not exactly what I want my high schooler to learn. They will learn the art of making love through exploration with a committed, single partner, when they are adults.

Now I am not naive enough to think that my children won't at least try sex while teenagers. So I believe that sex education should teach them different ways to say no to peer pressure, teach them about all birth control methods to also include that both partners should each be using a form of birth control every time. I also think they should be taught realistic consequences for not using BC; STD's and teen pregnancy. None of these things qualifies a porn star more than a well informed teacher, to teach sex Ed.

Just because she is a porn star doesn't mean she is a perv, that was her line of work, I read a article years ago to where many college students were working the pole so they could survive while in college...pole dancing put them threw school so they could have a better job.

Quoting 02nana07:

Maybe she did this to put herself threw college, she has to have a degree in teaching.

Yes, I would be. I have a friend who was a porn star, through her I've met another woman who currently is a porn star. They are both awesome people, I have no worries about them being around my kids, though they obviously aren't teaching them about sex. They're both independent, strong, self-sufficient women, they are excellent role models.
