We seem to actually be hiring experts:
Benedict Garrett, a sex education teacher who used the stage name Johnny Anglais, faces being struck off the teaching register after his way of life came to light while he was working at Beal High School in Ilford, Essex.
He faced allegations at a disciplinary hearing of the General Teaching Council in Birmingham yesterday that he appeared in a trailer for the pornography channel Television X and “performed as a stripper in public place”.
Of course, the teaching profession itself, now that they\’ve found out that they\’ve got someone who actually knows how to do, want to fire him.
It\’s perhaps not politic to say so, but do we think that the quality of sex education would rise if we deliberately and specifically hired ex-prostitutes to provide it? After all, the explosion of sex worker memoirs over the past few years does seem to be telling us that even when sex is supposedly what is being demanded and sold, sex is actually a pretty trivial part of what is being bought and sold.
A useful lesson, no?
