Summary Holland's teenagers practise safe sex. Less than 1% of them get pregnant every year compared to 6% in England. Much of that can be attributed to the Dutch culture of tolerance and pragmatism which allows open talk about sexuality between children and parents at home. Helping to keep the teenage pregnancy rate low are Holland's sex education teachers, who, because they are not bound by a National Curriculum, teach sex in very different ways. In Amsterdam's Lyceum, biology teacher Ruud Winkel discusses sexuality by getting his students to question each other from specially prepared cards. Like many teachers in Holland, he is direct and informal with his students but thinks the key to communicating with them, is to be yourself. But in a multicultural society not all children have the experience of being spoken with so explicitly, according to Yuri Ohlrichs at the Dutch Sexuality Centre.
Long Live Love is Holland's most widely taught sex education programme for 12 to 15 year olds. Subsidised by the Dutch Government, the Long Live Love Programme was developed in the early 90s in response to the threat of HIV and Aids. The package includes a video featuring a group of teenagers who sing in a band and have very different views on sex, as well as a magazine and a teachers pack. Sex education teacher Claire Barr joins a group of students and their teacher Inge Lammers at the Winkler Prins school in the north of Holland as they prepare to embark on their first lesson. The students start in the school library where from a staggering selection of more than 30 books on sex education, they learn how to find reliable sources of information. At the whiteboard, students are invited to write up slang words for vagina, penis and sex and then choose the most appropriate ones.
