Let's Talk About Safe Sex

The Grave Digger

A survey of 1000 UK Girl Guides revealed What (young) Women Want: to be prepared for the 21st century.

Girls under the age of 15 want instruction in a broad spectrum of activities, from the more traditional cooking healthy meals and pitching tent, to standing up to boys and safely surfing the web. Girls over 15 requested instructions on assembling flat pack furniture, managing their budget, and safe sex.
The demands emerged in survey ... by Girlguiding UK, which is striving to keep itself relevant to the lives of young women. A spokeswoman said that the movement would act on the findings and make sure that the appeal for more information on sex and money was met.
Link (via BoingBoing*.) While the badge may be new to the Girl Guides, it seems that the demand for basic information about sex has been around for quite some time. Just ask Spiderman (BoingBoing again).


* I'd like to point out that last part of this url reads 'girls_want_bad' (short for girls want badges) which I had misread as girls_want_it_bad which is a completely different take on this story, and not an entirely fair one either.

I hope you have to actually practice safe sex in order to get the badge.
