Live Action has released the second undercover video in its new series, Planned Parenthood Exposed, which so far has focused on its sex education to teens — efforts that earn them millions in federal funding. Last month, teen sex education included instruction on sadomasochistic practices, which initially prompted Planned Parenthood to announce that the “educator” had been terminated, a claim that turned out to be false. Education has improved since that last tape, as we see below from the Colorado office of Planned Parenthood. It’s been expanded to discussions of golden showers, scatology, and encouraging underage teens to browse at sex shops, which is illegal:
Again, remember that the student in this educational setting is supposed to be 15 years old. The counselor encourages the teen to pursue pornography and hide it from her parents. Some of this wouldn’t be very good advice even for an adult, but for a teen it’s entirely inappropriate. Sex education at that stage should consist of the basics, encouraging safety rather than deviant and dangerous activities for thrills.
One piece of advice that really should offend across the spectrum is the suggestion that the teen should read 50 Shades of Grey as a textbook on how to explore sexuality. The book features a series of submissive fantasies involving the main female character, a motif that drew some considerable criticism on publication for its message to adults. Should taxpayers fund education that encourages young girls to learn submission to pain-inducing practices as a normal part of sexual expression?
