An Oregon high school has parents livid after it was discovered that a health teacher assigned homework asking students to write sexual fantasy stories and mark the initials of a man or woman next to the sexual activities they would perform.
First reported by local television news station KEZI in the city of Eugene, a parent exposed the assignment via a screenshot on Facebook, which asked students at Churchill High School to “write a short story of a paragraph or two […about] a sexual fantasy that will have NO penetration of any kind or oral sex (no way of passing an STI).”
According to The Oregonian, Kirk Miller, health teacher and football coach, gave the assignment to students taking Churchill’s Health 2 – Human Sexuality course, which directs the class to show that minors could “receive loving affection without having sex” while choosing three items for the story.
Such items could include “romantic music, candles, massage oil, feather, feather boa, flavored syrup, etc.”Students at Churchill High School in Eugene, OR, were required to describe, in detailed writing, a sexual fantasy and turn it into the teacher. The assignment is part of a statewide curriculum called “Our Whole Lives.” I think there’s a word for this…? https://t.co/CZ4DZItOHG pic.twitter.com/BSdsRCcJE8Hundreds of comments flooded the post within an hour of the screenshot being made public on social media. “This is so inappropriate,” one post read. “Does he still have a job?”

Another parent expressed outrage over the idea of an adult male teacher asking their daughter to share sexual fantasies with him. “I would be livid and be going to the police,” the comment said. “No teacher has any business asking this of a child.”
Katherine Rogers, whose 16-year-old daughter attends the high school but was not in the class, told The Oregonian that Miller previously gave the students another assignment that encouraged bisexuality, called “With Whom Would You Do It?”
The classwork required students to initial males and females that the student “would do each activity with,” which were sexual in nature, such as kissing and oral sex.
“You may use the same person for multiple activities,” the assignment added.
Forget it Jake, it's Eugene.
