“The new materials for the sex ed program are being distributed to 30 primary schools and kindergartens in Basel, containing dolls, puzzles, books and other educational material for 4 to 10-year-olds, and a box with the more explicit materials for older kids, according to the newspaper Blick.
The guide included with the kit instructs kindergarten teachers to “show that contacting body parts can be pleasurable.” It also recommends having children massage each other or to rub themselves with warm sand bags, all accompanied by soft music.
“Children should be encouraged to develop and experience their sexuality in a pleasurable way,” Daniel Schneider, a deputy kindergarten rector for Basel who helped develop the sex ed curriculum along with experts, told the paper.
Thomas Steffen, a school doctor in Basel, told Blick that the taboo around sex and sex ed “is a problem that only adults have.”
