Official onanism...

"El placer está en tus manos" es el título de la campaña de la Junta de Extremadura para enseñar a los jóvenes a masturbarse; "autoexploración sexual y el autodescubrimiento del placer" [Telecinco, Spanish]

Pleasure in your handsNot sure how? Not sure when? Not sure what? No worries, "Pleasure is in your own hands": the Officials in the Spanish region of Extremadura have launched a campaign to teach young people about "sexual self-exploration and discovery of self-pleasure". [The Guardian]

Now being taught how to wank could be interesting. Owsblog touched on this sensitive issue (phnarr, phnarr) a few years ago by explaining what the original onanist was told to do, it's not what you think. Anyway, some "questioned why the poorest region in Spain was paying for a campaign to promote onanism."

"Extremadura should be pleased with itself," sniped Pilar Rahola, a columnist in the Barcelona-based La Vanguardia newspaper. "It may have the most unemployed young people in Spain, but they will be the best at masturbation."

The fact that there's a place in Spain called Extremadura always makes me smile - it just sounds like it should mean something rude.

A comedian on BBC recently said that given the availability of porn on the internet and the amount that is 'consumed' by the youth of today he was surprised that so many teenagers still get pregnant. He said that watching porn in the noughties gave you the impression that sex usually involved three people, a lot of anal sex and ended with the bloke jizzing (his words not mine) on the face or boobs of his partner.

I appear to have achieved the impossible and lowered the tone of one of your posts about sex!

hahaha, yes very good!

Re the name I almost wrote exactly what you say! ...that it sounds appropriate (like it should mean extreme hardness or something)!
