In the “why didn’t I have this when I was young” department, the socialist government of Extremadura (in Spain) has begun a campaign for 14- to 17-year-olds to help them out with their masturbation techniques. The campaign’s slogan? “Pleasure Is In Your Hands.” According to the Guardian:
The campaign includes leaflets, flyers, a “fanzine” and workshops for the young in which they receive instruction on self-pleasuring techniques along with advice on contraception and self-respect.
Yes, a masturbation ‘zine. A government-printed masturbation ‘zine. Again, I really could’ve used help like this back when I was first discovering my sexuality… Christ, that last year of college was tough.
