You might want to keep this in mind the next time you go to sign that school field trip form for your 12 year old. (Progs will undoubtedly rush the signed form back to school and ask if the younger sibling can tag along too...The rest of us may want to consider keeping our child home that day. )

"Sex: A Tell-All Exhibition," at Canada's Museum of Science and Technology in Ottawa, includes screens displaying aroused genitals, naked statues with light-up erogenous zones and video displays prompting visitors to answer sexually explicit questions, the Ottawa Sun reports."
"The exhibit was reportedly designed to "fill in gaps" left by changes to sexual education programs in the region."
"The exhibit initially targeted children as young as 12. The age for admission has now been raised to 16, but younger children can still see the exhibit on field trips, the Ottawa Sun reports."

From the OP's link..." naked statues with light-up erogenous zones"

Are there signs that say "touch me here" ?

Probably. I like the part that says the exhibit was designed to "fill in gaps" left by school sex education programs. Honestly, I didn't think there any "gaps" left in the public school's sex ed programs.

The question is do you want to teach them everything by the time they are 12 ? Not every kid goes through puberty at 12.

Pssst - the museum is in Canada. In the US of A, we like to teach them that genitals are for peeing only until you're married. Then you can figure it out on your own.
