Spain's autonomous region of Extremadura has sparked a bit of a rumpus by issuing an educational leaflet entitled Pleasure is in your hands, detailing the best way to achieve solo satisfaction. The offending literature is part of a €14,000 campaign aimed at raising sexual awareness among the region's 14 to 17-year-olds, and …

Is a Playmobil dramatization unreasonable?
It's a plot..
.. to sell more handsfree sets..
I'd like to congratulate you on the headline - its' that sort of quality that makes me come (cough) back to El Reg again (the story itself isn't new).
Is it available to download in pdf format?

Ironic that you write an article chastising a leaflet giving information about masturbation but post a link to the subject underneath it
Oh and shouldn't you be putting a NSFW marker on this?
Paris: as if you even had to ask...
So it's true

I used to own a Mitsubishi Pajero - which is called a Shogun in Europe. The reason it has a different name over here compared to over there is that "pajero" is wanker in Spanish.
"The PP's leader, Mariano Rajoy, has yet to blame president José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero for the Extremadura outrage. This is a bit surprising, since he blames the poor bloke for everything else - from the global economic crisis to some Madrid pensioner's pet cat getting stuck up a tree."
Change that to David Cameron and Gordon Brown and you get the same old story.
NSFW? Maybe if we say the pamphlet or have some material in the article to assist us in trying out the techniques...

He insisted that if teens "don't how to masturbate or whether they should masturbate or not, that's a personal matter for the young person, which should be dealt with at home"
"Mom, it's gone all hard again what should I do?" I hardly think that anybody has asked that question ever.
Wish I'd had a manual
Wouldn't have wasted the money on the trampoline and the arc welder. SIGH
NOW ON E-Bay, used, some stains.

Eeuurrghh! I now have to purge my mind of a picture of father giving his son the birds and bees speech, but one-handed.
There will be more cases ..

Depends what the details are
If the focus is on explaining that masturbation is natural and healthy then this is quite enlightened. How many male people have suffered from masturbation guilt, even just from the social stigma attached? I know I have, just from the fact that all the other boys made fun of the idea. At 14 you didn't really consider the fact that they're probably all at it too.
At least they didn't claim it was unsuitable for moral reasons, that is something of a relief. If you want to believe in organised religion be my guest, but keep god out of my pants. Er, that didn't come out right...
FFS you hardly need a leaflet, you try stopping any gent from the age of 5 upwards, from "adjusting" himself 50 times an hour! You don't written material, well not to teach about it anyways, maybe for some mental "warm-up" before the main act commences!
Ant they fall for it… again
Our current Leftoid government is a master at throwing this kind of moral outrage silliness targets to its Rightish opposition, so that it does its usual foaming mouth act and gets both distracted and painted as retrograde. Abortion law reform, euthanasia, etc., now this. Please don't see it as another idiotic act from government: the dosage is too precisely measured. You could argue good reasons behind every initiative of those, but they usually are all too well designed to push the Right's right buttons. It doesn't help that the Right has too many of those, plus its eagerness to froth at the mouth whatever the real level of offense.
Yes, being a Spaniard IS fun these days.
The manual, by the way, is a simple sexuality Q&A guide covering everything from masturbation to peer pressure, A bit disorganized and faux-hip, but nothing to worry about.

I love it!!! made me smile
There are two types of people when it come to masturbation.
The first are those who admit to doing it, and the rest are liars
Paris? Well a young chap has to start somewhere......
Byline: "Pleasure is in your hands"
But it might also be in the "eye of the beholder". Gotta be careful where you point that thing.
Did the €14k campaign
include the distribution of man-size tissues? Or were they also trying to teach 14-17 year old teenage lads to clean up after themselves as well?
Do lasses actually use/need tissues to clean up?
and he probably enjoyed cracking it off too...
Do 14 to 17-year-olds really need lessons in how to wank? I'd have thought the real task at hand (fnarr) was persuading them to make an effort to try anything else.
Do you engage in safe sex?
Yes, I wear a rubber glove!
