Private school considers porn star sex-ed teachers

“I wouldn’t rule it out,” says the headmaster of a private school in England.

The headmaster of an English private school wants to teach children the difference between pornographic sexuality and intimate sexual relationships. But he’s suggested a controversial method: allowing porn stars to lead the class.

Mark Slater, the head of a $43,000-a-year private school in Cambridge, says he believes pornography can damage a young person’s ability to “form fulfilling relationships.”

Discussing the possibility of inviting a porn star to speak to students, Slater told the Telegraph:

“I wouldn't rule it out simply because of what they have done in their life if I felt that person was going to put across good values and be a good influence.”

Slater’s comments follow a recent study on pornography and sexual education from the University of Middlesex. Researchers recommend sex-ed curriculum to include lessons on pornography.

Typical inflammatory article title followed by an actual reasonable discourse. He's clearly talking about people who have left the business, and now regret the decision to be porn stars in the first place. It's no different that having teen moms speak in a sex ed class. It's all about scaring the kids into seriously considering how the decisions they make now can affect their lives and options in the long term.

 Maybe we can further demonstrate the difference between commercial and intimate sex, by paying a hooker to turn a student trick. While were at it, lets legitimize street walking and making porno films as  a future career path for students. I know this is a private school but this  is exactly the type of sh...t  I think about every time they want to raise my taxes for schools. Where do they find teachers like this scumbag, and how do they get in classrooms. Worse than that, how do they stay there?

Yeah....it's understandable. Reminds me of what my girlfriend asked me a few weeks back. We were sitting in the living room and she asked me to if I wanted to make love like they do in the movies. I got really excited and well.....grabbed hold of her bent her over the couch and pounded her a.ss, then got the other side, pulled out and j.erked off on her face. Out of nowhere she started crying and carrying on, I guess we don't watch the same movies. Go figure.

The school could also invite mobsters involved in organized crime to speak to the students about entrepreneurship and free enterprise.
