The absolute state of Sweden.
From The Local:
Sweden’s government has funded a series of films to teach immigrant women about sex, their sexual organs, and their reproductive rights.
The Swedish Association for Sexuality Education (RFSU), a sexual charity, has so far made eleven films, which are currently being translated into 14 different languages.
The animated films, the first of which were put online at the end of March, cover all aspects of sex from pure enjoyment, with titles such “Lust and Pleasure”, and “Female Genitalia”, to pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, abortion and female genital mutilation.
“We want it to be absolutely not condescending, or demeaning, we want it to be empowering, that in Sweden you have these rights,” Magdalena Abrahamsson, who led the project, told The Local.
The videos, which are closer to slide shows than films, communicate Sweden’s matter-of-fact approach to sex in Arabic, Dari, Somali, Persian, Northern and Central Kurdish, English and other languages.
…On Thursday Social Minister Annika Strandhäll announced that the project would receive a further 3.7 million kronor ($416,000) in funding.
Judging by the comments on YouTube, the video isn’t going over so well:
