An organization opposing a new sex-education curriculum in a Maryland school district has posted online part of the videotape that will be shown to 10th-graders this spring: a young woman putting a condom on a cucumber while giving her pupils helpful tips.

Citizens for a Responsible Curriculum features an excerpt from the seven and a half minute video on its website. The group is fighting a decision by the Board of Education of Montgomery County, Md., to show the video, entitled "Protect Yourself," to students as part of its new sex-education curriculum.
"Remember to use a condom for oral, anal and vaginal sex," the young actress says, noting that if the condom is accidentally put on inside out, it must be discarded for a new one.
"Don't unroll the whole thing and then try to put it on," she advises as she rolls a condom onto a vertical cucumber. "It won't be easy, and the condom is much more likely to tear."
The organization says it obtained a copy of the video directly from the school district through the Maryland Public Information Act.
The community group, which will show the video in its entirety at a town hall meeting March 19, also opposes the sexual-orientation emphasis of the new curriculum.
"[It] goes beyond the ethic of tolerance by demanding affirmation of a homosexual orientation and behavior, and in fact violates the value systems of many families," the site states.
The new curriculum will be piloted at six schools this spring. A decision will then be made in June about expanding it to the entire school district.
As WorldNetDaily reported, the Montgomery County board appointed an 11-year-old girl to the panel charged with recommending a new sex education curriculum.
