WE’LL BE HAVING A TEST NEXT FRIDAY….Sometimes you have to go to the Drudge Report to find links to the news that’s truly, um, stimulating:

A GOVERNMENT-backed course is encouraging pupils under 16 to experiment with oral sex, as part of a drive to cut rates of teenage pregnancy.

….It aims to reduce promiscuity by encouraging pupils to discover ?levels of intimacy?, including oral sex, instead of full sexual intercourse

But there’s bad news for American teenagers: this is a British program. Better luck next time, kids.
