This fabulous story came out on the BBC website today…with the title “Spanish ‘self love’ lessons row”.
In brief, the government of the region of Extremadura in Spain has launched a campaign based on the slogan “pleasure is in your own hands“, which gives advice on masturbation.
Of course, with the large Roman Catholic population in Spain, it has got a few people’s backs up. Pilar Rahola, a columnist in the Barcelona-based La Vanguardia newspaper, wrote:
“Extremadura should be pleased with itself…It may have the most unemployed young people in Spain but they will be the best at masturbation.”
