Facts And Fear




The youth organisation SpunOut.ie has defended itself after a Fine Gael TD accused it of publishing inappropriate sex education content on its website.

Fine Gael TD Michelle Mulherin was quoted by a Sunday newspaper [Sunday Independent] criticising the organisation, which receives €124,000 in State funding a year, for publishing tips on threesomes. She said this was “incredibly regressive” and would raise it with Minister for Health James Reilly, according to the Sunday Independent.

In a statement, the charity said: “Young people are having sex whether the Sunday Independent or Deputy Michelle Mulherin like it or not. Some of them are having sex with more than one person, and sometimes with more than one person at the one time.”

Well, Holy God.
