GENEVA, November 18, 2021 / PRNewswire / – According to a statement released today by the International Raelian Movement (IRM), on November 20, World Children’s Day, Raelians around the world will celebrate the 7th annual Sex Education Day and make the promotion of early sex education, as recommended by the experts in the UNESCO Report.

“Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE), as defined in the report, is exactly what international spiritual leader Rael has been advocating and teaching for over 45 years,” explained Clemence Linard, Raelian bishop and spokesperson for SexEd Day. “The goal is to provide children and adolescents with sex education and tools adapted to their age and culture, and which focus on pleasure, fulfillment and well-being in terms of sexual health. as defined by the WHO, ”she added.

“Those who oppose the science-based sex education program are simply conditioned to sexual guilt by their medieval Christian education. birth and even before! Sexuality education simply allows them to avoid developing guilt about their own sexuality, ”Rael said in a previous statement from the IRM.

Linard emphasized: “Comprehensive sexuality education teaches young people that sexuality is a normal and healthy part of human life which can enable them to make more informed decisions later in life. This includes information on masturbation / self-pleasure from childhood just to understand how their body works and that self-stimulation is normal and healthy. “

And for twelve years, the Raelians have campaigned for this language to be reinstated in the UNESCO report, but no change for the moment. According to Linard, “It is absolutely scandalous that a scientific report is censored due to backward religious pressure.”

“If we cannot work on normalizing positive sexual messages about masturbation to reduce the associated feelings of shame, guilt and fear, as well as to improve the overall sexual health and literacy of children, it will have no effect. doubt a negative impact on their physical and mental well-being in the long term, ”she concluded.
