(KNTV-TV) Too much information. That’s what parents are saying about the “birds and bees” lessons in a new health textbook for high school freshmen.

Parents say the book mentions vibrators and bondage and is inappropriate for 13- and 14-year-olds. More than a hundred parents showed up at the district offices to check the book for themselves.

The book at the center of the controversy is “Your Health Today.” In less than three weeks 2, 400 ninth graders will be using the text book in their health classes. But already more than 1,200 people have signed a petition to pull the book, claiming it exposes students to sexual games – even sexual fantasies and bondage with handcuffs, ropes and blindfolds.
