From the growing Things are Getting Even Worse Across the Pond department
Mr. Shea and various others have posted this link . Apparently, the British Government is taking the Clintonian position: this sort of thing isn't really sex. Therefore, they un-reason, why shouldn't the kids have all the fun they want ?
I was reminded of something the inimitable Fr. Neuhaus wrote in First Things , all the way back in 1998.

Britain’s New Labor government has a few tried and failed ideas of its own. Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Seminary in Louisville, brings to my attention that Her Majesty’s Government promoted a first-ever Sexual Awareness Week. An official explained, "Young people are less likely to have early sex if there is good communication about the subject at home. We are emphasizing that sex is fun and talking is the key to a healthy sex life." Right. "It’s really fun, kids, so don’t do it." I can’t help thinking that it’s a sad commentary on the younger generation when they have to be instructed to take an interest in sex. What’s really interesting, however, is the assertion that talking is the key to the thing. "Brits do it verbally." It’s downright kinky.
