I was going to title this post 'the Metro is going down the pan' but that seems superfluous at this point. Why you should buy your kids sex toys | Metro News At the risk of being a little TMI I didn't need my father to give me wanking tips, as a teenage lad I worked it out myself. I'm not sure, but I'm betting young girls didn't need their mothers to explain it either. However, in this uber cringy article, the Metro think that the moment you suspect your offspring is rubbing one out you should rush out an buy them a fleshlight or a vibrator. Nothing over the top mind you, as the author points out - you wouldn't want it to be 'scary or intimidating' no no no you want your 13-year-old to feel comfortable and relaxed as she unwraps the Lovehoney present you just got her. According to the author young girls need special guidance because without it; well you can read for yourself. It all seems a bit condescending to me.
