British schools are being recommended a teaching resource suggesting that ‘sex at 13’ is normal, a Parliamentary committee has been told.
Appearing in front of the Education Select Committee on Tuesday, Sarah Carter of the Family Education Trust, pointed MPs to the “Traffic Light Tool” produced by “sexual health” group Brook, which features a booklet labeled Supplementary Advice to the Sex and Relationship Education Guidance and produced by Brook, the PSHE Association and the Sex Education Forum.
The “Traffic Light Tool” suggests that “interest in erotica/pornography, sexually explicit conversations with peers and consenting oral and/or penetrative sex with others of the same or opposite gender who are of similar age and developmental ability” reflect “safe and healthy sexual development” and “provide opportunities to give positive feedback and additional information.”
‘Encouraging Illegal Activity’
Sarah Carter highlighted that the legal age of consent for sexual intercourse is 16 and suggested that the advice therefore encouraged illegal activity.
In response, the Committee’s Chairman, Graham Stuart MP, suggested to the Chief Executive of the PSHE Association, Joe Hayman, “not to send out a message, that it’s wrong, that it’s harmful, it’s dangerous, is in fact to almost collude with something which we know is damaging to young people.”
