Conservative MPs have voted to block plans for sex and relationship education (SRE) to be made compulsory in schools.
Government guidance on Sexual Education currently allows free schools & academies to opt out of teaching the subject in class. As the law stands, state schools are obligated to cover sex education from a biological aspect, but no British schools are required to teach pupils about the social or emotional aspects of sex, or make classes LGBT inclusive.
This obviously leaves a LOT up to the parents. How does EVERY parent approach the subjects of sex and relationships, same-sex relationships, sexual consent, sexual violence and domestic violence in the right way and without help from schools? These are ALL important topics which are growing more concerning as time goes by, and at a younger age for children!
The rejected amendment comes amid fresh criticism from charity campaigners, who claim present teachings are seriously out-dated for the “smartphone generation” of children who are exposed to the internet and influenced by social media.
SRE guidance for schools has not been updated in close to 17 years – making the current legislation older than the majority of pupils learning about the subject.
We at GiftCondom.com that this is abysmal from the current Government. How can children learn more about extremely important and sensitive topics from Twitter and Facebook, than their own schools?! There is some serious misguidance at play here and TOO MUCH is left down to parents.

The ways in which women are being negatively affected by austerity has today been bolstered. This time, reproductive health is on the menu for the Government.
According to research by the Advisory Group on Contraception, GPs in England have stopped giving out and providing contraceptive methods.
IUDs, IUS, the more well-known contraceptive injection AND implant are no longer being provided or are at risk of being removed by ONE in THREE councils across the country. What worries us most at GiftCondom, is that a quarter of councils have already shut some of their contraceptive services!
What it boils down to is the lack of funding for public health budgets of local councils. If the current Government won’t change their standing with the £200m cut from the budget, more and more women will not have the ability to protect themselves from falling pregnant.
First sanitary towels, and now this? Contraception is an INVESTMENT, not a LUXURY! – GiftCondom.com
The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS), has also said that a third of women live in areas where contraceptive services are restricted.
We think this is appalling, and it is only going to bring about a rise in unplanned pregnancies and abortions, which many young women could live without, as well as more costs for the government in the long run! There is one way around this issue, though… USE CONDOMS!
This is why we exist at GiftCondom.com Send a discreet package of condoms to your children, nieces or nephews in secret so you know they’re safe!
Where life is possible, it always tends to find its way toward procreation. Whether you’re Human or a randy Ladybird, intercourse is commonplace in life, But just so with Humans as it is with poor little ladybugs, sex comes with risks. With rising STD rates in both species, let us explain why Condoms are the best form of protection in the bedroom.
Birth Control pills are an excellent solution for contraception in many cases, but they are not a fail-safe method and they do nothing to prevent STDs. If you forget a pill then you may get pregnant, and even if you luck out, using a condom for a while is still advisable until you’re schedule is back on track with the prescription. Another thing to note is that, according to the NHS, some illnesses and antibiotics can affect how well the pill, or any hormonal birth control works. If you’ve been on antibiotics or have been sick with anything causing vomiting, you will want to use condoms as a secondary measure to protect against pregnancy.
Unplanned pregnancies are a major concern the world over. In today’s world, there are many contraceptive methods, but when one of these methods fails or isn’t present in a sexual scenario, condoms inevitably turn out to be the right answer. Many medical professionals recommend using two methods of contraception simultaneously to be completely fail-safe. Try to name me a safer combo than hormonal birth control and condoms, I’ll wait…
Some people now use a method known as “Natural Family Planning.” This is where the girl tracks her menstrual schedule and during the two weeks closest to her ovulation when she could get pregnant, unprotected sex does not occur. Most couples use condoms to protect against pregnancy.
There are many ways to have protected sex, but every single one of them is either better with a condom as well or better with a condom instead! Help someone stay completely safe today with GiftCondom.com
