Parents in Fremont, California are alarmed and demanding the removal of a health textbook that talks about masturbation, foreplay, vibrators, oral sex, and erotic touch, as well as other sexual education topics such as bondage.
Teri Topham, whose daughter is going into ninth grade in Fremont and who teaches high school at a Fremont charter school, said she would throw the book, titled Your Health Today out. "I flipped through it and saw sections that mentioned bondage with ropes and handcuffs," Topham said. "Not only does it have material that is too explicit and inappropriate, it doesn't meet their need for their ages. I am astounded the health teachers and school board said, 'yes, this is the best book we could find.'"
The school is planning to keep the book.
