Parents fuming over graphic book aimed at children as young as four-years-old

PARENTS have been left outraged over a children’s book aimed at children as young as four that discusses “spraying semen”.

Shocked mums and dads have slammed author Dagmar Geisler after reading segments from her book, My Body Is Growing.

The picture book is listed as a “Guide for four to eight-year-olds” to learn about their bodies and sex.

The book discusses a man “spraying semen” into a woman’s vagina.

It also discusses various forms of contraception, including birth control pills and the coil.

As well as writing of “stiff” penises, the book discusses how a male character “sprays semen into” a woman’s “moist” vagina.

Hundreds of furious parents have hit out at the author on social media this week after extracts of the book were shared online.

A passage from book, which is accompanied by a sketching of a woman laying on top of a man, reads: “They snuggle together for a long time. They kiss each other all over their bodies. Behind the ears, on the neck, on the chest and stomach, even on the bum and between the legs.

“Sabrina’s vagina becomes moist and warm and Marco’s penis gets very stiff. Marco then pushes his penis into Sabrina’s vagina.

“Always in and out. That feels great for both of them. When the feeling is nicest, Marco’s penis sprays semen into Sabrina’s vagina.

“‘That’s how you get babies,’ Toby said.”

A blurb of the short book on Amazon reads: “In My Body is Growing, Dagmar Geisler works to show preschool and early elementary readers that we’re really not all that different, regardless of whether we’re boys or girls.

“Though we may all seem similar on the outside, we are each our own person on the inside. At this age, our bodies and our minds are changing–we’re growing up!

“By getting to know the students of Class 4B, young readers will learn how their own minds and bodies work. They’ll learn about friendship, about gender stereotypes, and about the rights they have, even (and especially) as children.

“Dagmar also addresses sexual abuse and why it’s so important to report it to an adult.

“Additionally, through stories and antics of the older siblings of Class 4B, readers will be introduced to the topics of puberty, falling in love, having sex, and becoming pregnant.

“Dagmar Geisler’s My Body is Growing is the perfect introduction to body awareness and sexual education for preschool and early elementary school students.”

The book includes some very graphic content.

An outraged parent from Bristol shared images of the book on Twitter on Monday, writing: “This is disgusting, this book is made for 4-8 year old kids, they’re grooming our children and no one is talking about it or even trying to do anything about it.

“I bet they show this stuff in school. This is how they destroy a whole society.”

The post has now collected thousands of likes with hundreds of retweets and comments from appalled parents.

One said: “I’m about to contact my kids’ school and demand an inventory list from their damn library!

“The book is called ‘My Body Is Growing, a guide for four to eight-year-olds.’

“Read that again.

“Four to eight-year-olds!”

Another wrote: “Disgusting. If I got that sent home it would be ‘lost’.

“I would offer to pay for a more appropriate one. FFS!”

A third commented: “Why the hell can’t kids just grow up in their own time instead of having stuff like this forced upon them from such an early age.

“Although a certain culture encourages this behaviour, innocence is non existent nowadays.

“Leave it ’til at least high school age.”

One person added: “This is totally inappropriate. I would be home schooling my kids.”
