Utah legislators are so scared of comprehensive sex education that they recently voted down a bill that would have allowed parents to have the option of letting their children take a sex education class that included lessons on consent and contraception.

Lucky for the people of Utah, though, porn site xHamster has them covered. (Literally?)


Anyone from the state who visits the site — and Utah residents love their porncurrently have the option of clicking through to PG-13 sex ed videos.

We’ve come up with a solution that we will hopefully satisfy them on both fronts. Beginning immediately, we’re rerouting all xHamster traffic from Utah to our comprehensive sex ed series, The Box. We’ve been working on The Box since last year, producing videos based on questions submitted by porn viewers.

While we love porn, we don’t think that it should be relied on for sex ed any more than Star Wars is a substitute for science class.

That series, which appears on family-friendly YouTube, is apparently more informational than anything you’ll find in a Utah classroom.

When a porn website shows a greater desire to educate students than elected officials who prefer to keep them sheltered, you know your state is heading in the wrong direction.
