The Critical 'I'

Read. React. Repeat.

Serious part:

Because of the growing epidemic of AIDS, other STDs and illegal abortions among schoolchildren, the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou will start sexual education coursework at the kindergarten level. Presumably, the rest of China will eventually follow suit.

Humorous part:

Life mirrors art as the "South Park" episode "Proper Condom Use" saw the quiet mountain town institute sex ed from kindergarten on up. The highlight was Mr. Garrison instructing his tykes on the names of all the different sexual positions known to man and woman, and giving a demonstration on how to put on a condom--with your mouth. Presumably, China will find instructors who will teach an alternative set of methods.
