HOW I SEE IT - Gina Hebden, PR director, PMW Communications
Children learn about sex at school, in the playground and through the media. So it seems unnecessary to bring the subject up in their leisure time. The poor kids are probably dying for a bit of sex respite.
Presumably the move was less to do with gaining publicity and more to do with showing responsibility towards their members, and this is commendable. But parents like to think of their children enjoying innocent camping adventures, not learning how to roll on a condom and show the Guides a good time. And who are these people giving our children sex advice? Are they suitably qualified for the job? My thoughts on the Scouts' initiative: Britain needs you and loves you but leave the sex ed to parents, schools and the German channel.
