Porn Stars Could Teach Sex Education Classes

Porn stars could be the way forward in teaching sex education to students, according to recent claims by a Cambridge headmaster.

The headteacher at The Leys, Mark Slater, has commented that using a guest speaker experienced in the porn industry might have a more positive influence on students than the system currently in place.

However, Slater has stressed that the guest speaker would have to be someone who reinforces good judgements and good morals in order for them to be considered for this role, which leaves the awkward question of who gets to decide what’s good and what isn’t?

After all, the porn industry churns out hundreds of videos that are all about your preference in taste, and therefore surely the porn stars from the films could also bring a diverse range of opinions to the topic of sex education.

That being said, with claims that sex education misinforms students anyway, is this idea really such a bad move, should it ever happen?

There is then the issue of how all the parents of the students attending would feel about this idea; the school charges up to $43,000 a year in student fees and reflects a certain social class of those enrolled; with so much money being spent on their children’s education, would parents endorse a porn star teaching students?

However, when you consider that education laws have already been passed to allow five-year-olds to learn about sex, there seems little reason to stop education techniques like this; when all is said and done, these students will be taught about sex whatever the end decision.

Though when you hear that Slater intends to retire this December, you begin to question why he’s suddenly decided to openly discuss the introduction of porn stars in the education system; if his opinions should land him in hot water, he knows that he hasn’t got long before he leaves and can avoid criticism altogether.

Nevertheless, with porn being such an inescapable source of ‘entertainment’ for Internet users, maybe having porn stars teaching students isn’t too much of a scandalous idea?
