Beijing schools have, after extensive testing, begun using a brand new, progressive textbook for sexual education that is aimed at children as young as seven. The book, which was put together by Beijing Normal University nine years ago, teaches readers about sexist gender norms, same-sex relationships, sexual fantasies, and even AIDS and HIV prevention.

There are even illustrations throughout the textbook that depict things up to and including the act of sex and the fertilization of the egg.

Korean Schoolkids Still Among Unhappiest in the World

Korean schoolchildren remain among the unhappiest in the OECD, a survey suggests.

Korean children ranked a poor 20th among 22 OECD member states with 88 points on the subjective happiness scale, according to a recent survey of 7,343 schoolkids across the country by the Institute for Social Development Studies at Yonsei University.

The results published on Monday show that only children in Belgium (86 points) and the Czech Republic (81 points) are less happy than those in Korea. That is an improvement from last year, when Korea finished dead last.
