SEX EDUCATION FOR GIRLS

Click on the image to enlarge for easy reading.

My daughter sent me this extract from 'a sex education textbook for girls printed in the 60s'. Are we referring to the 1960s? Seems more like the 1860s! This extract is so sexist. But then again, there are cultures that expect women to be completely submissive to their husbands, especially in the bedroom. Few women today would subscribe to such a subservient role.

Education has liberated women, and this applies to sex education too, but certainly not of the textbook type.

Investment in education for girls increases the economic & social returns of development investments in all other sectors. Educating girls contributes to creating wealth through its impact on economic development.

I almost fell out of my chair reading this- simply couldn't control myself and laughed so loud that my husband heard and had to explain to him ( he's not into computers yet!)
Typical reply- 'its not that bad an idea to go back to!! I almost choked him..... ha ha ha...

"... should your husband suggest congress, then agree humbly...."

OMG, most of this I read with my jaw on my knees, but the one that nearly knocked me off my seat is the quote above!!!

Thank you for making this a smiley day for me :)

And if congress proves too limp, take the matter up to the senate! ;-)

these days girls are more fast than boys. They are very much familiar with the sex they opt for.
