Sexual health agency Family Planning says school pupils should be taught about pleasure zones in sex education, but the idea has left some school principals feeling uneasy.
Christchurch Boys’ High principal Nic Hill said it was “interesting ground” but he could not imagine his staff wanting to “get in to technique”.
“I’m a little surprised. I don’t think that will be happening at Boys’ High.”
Burnside High School principal Phil Holstein, who is also Canterbury Westland Secondary Principals’ Association chairman, said he did not feel comfortable with the advice and he was sure his teachers would feel the same.
“Nor is it appropriate in the form of the health syllabus. I don’t think it was ever intended that those things be discussed.”
