It could be worse

Following my little rant the other day about sex education, here is an extreme example (via Dave Winer) of what happens when people don't know enough about their own bodies:

A German couple who went to a fertility clinic after eight years of marriage have found out why they are still childless—they weren't having sex. [...]

A clinic spokesman said: "When we asked them how often they had had sex, they looked blank, and said: 'What do you mean?' [They] were brought up in a religious environment [and] were simply unaware, after eight years of marriage, of the physical requirements necessary to procreate."

And here I thought natural urges would always sort things out.
