Parents are being warned that an explicit sex education resource is being used in secondary schools in England which teaches teens about sex acts by using “body parts dice”.
‘Sexuality aGender v2’ is a part Government-funded “sexual health toolkit” created by LGBT group The Proud Trust and is aimed at youngsters aged 13 or over.
The ‘LGBT inclusive’ resource for teachers features a range of graphic lesson plans and activities including a “genital gallery”, an “identity search puzzle” and a page where young people are invited to customise genitals with glasses, bow ties and badges.
Body parts dice
In the ‘dice game’ session, pupils are given two dice with body parts on them, including penis, hands and fingers, vulva and anus.
Groups are asked to roll the dice and discuss how the combinations might work in practice, with the teachers’ guide detailing every possible outcome, as well as describing almost every combination as “fun”, “enjoyable” or “pleasurable”.
The guide tells teachers that “Not all combinations will be easy to discuss and some might seem impossible”, but adds: “Every combination is worthy of a conversation!”
Radical gender ideology
The teaching pack has also been criticised for downplaying the risks of sexual behaviour. It says: “It’s important to remember that some people find ‘risky sex’ pleasurable” and states that teaching children about sexually transmitted diseases “isn’t always a positive method of learning”.
Radical gender ideology is strongly promoted, with teachers told to refer to a “person with a vagina” and a “person with a penis” because “not all women have a vagina, and not all men have a penis”, while claiming that biological sex is ‘assigned at birth’.
In one lesson, young people may be invited to decide where they would place themselves on a ‘gender spectrum’ that explains that your gender identity “is how you think about yourself”.
After the lesson, teachers are encouraged to ask students if they know where a local LGBT youth club is, and if there is an LGBT group in school they could join.
The resource, which received almost £100,000 in public funding, was launched ahead of the new laws on Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) which came into force in England this week.
The Christian Institute’s Education Officer John Denning said: “This appalling resource exemplifies the lengths to which some campaign groups will go to foist their agenda on naive schools.
“RSE law does not require children to be taught how to engage in risky sexual acts. But it does require schools to consult parents before they start teaching RSE. This is an opportunity for parents to engage positively with schools.
“Our new guide for Christian parents in England helps explains this and gives parents tips on the best way to raise their concerns with schools.”

There are good things that can be taught under the new arrangements but unfortunately the changes also provide an opportunity for campaign groups opposed to Christian teaching to push forward their controversial agendas in schools.
Jackie Doyle-Price MP also criticised the teaching materials, explaining that while she had “fully supported” the introduction of RSE in schools, she had done so under the illusion it would empower girls to fight against “increasingly sexualised behaviour in schools and abuse of under-age girls”.
She said: “It is with horror that I see materials being produced which do the exact opposite.”
