Swedish TV unveils another ridiculously twee sex ed video



They've done it again. Swedish Television’s Bacillakuten, a show about health for preschoolers, has followed up their viral video about sex organs with one about conception:


It's not quite as catchy as its predecessor, but it does have anthropomorphic sperm.

But is it too cute for its own good? Maybe. I recall my only Swedish friend, Åsk Wappling from Adland, hated the first video's made-up names for genitals. And I think she has a point. The sex education curriculum where I live — in Ontario, Canada — is presently being updated to include teaching kids in Grade One the appropriate names for their genitals. You'd think that sexually-progressive Swedes would demand no less than real biology.

  2. Snopp (penis) has been used for decades, but snippa (female genitals) is relatively new. I like it. :) There was no proper name for female genitals, not one that was playful and felt appropriate for preschoolers. I work in preschool and snippa is widely used there.

    1. What's wrong with the actual "proper" names (penis and vulva, but in Swedish). That's what's really appropriate for preschoolers!

  3. Those words just aren't as widely used in Swedish as in English.
