National newspapers have since interviewed the couple, and also published shocking details of the lessons that their children were expected to attend.
The Mail on Sunday reported that the teaching programme included telling children as young as six about touching or ‘stimulating’ their own genitals.
Other details of the lessons are too graphic to publish in this newspaper, and yet are being suggested for use in schools with primary-aged children.
The lessons are part of a controversial new sex and relationships teaching programme called ‘All About Me’…
Matthew Seymour, told the Mail on Sunday, “My wife cried the first time she read what was going to be in the lessons. This sexualisation of our children is just totally inappropriate. They are calling it self-touching and they won’t use the term masturbation, but when you read it that’s exactly what they’re talking about.”
An editorial in the Mail on Sunday said, ‘Critics of these classes have long suggested they are an attempt to undermine Christian teaching on such matters. Could this bizarre and creepy material prove their case?’
