Malaysia bans 40-year-old illustrated sex ed book Why not ban sex?

KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia has banned a nearly 40-year-old sex education book written by a British author following complaints by Muslim activists that it is obscene. The Home Ministry says that Peter Mayle's "Where Did I Come From?" contains "elements that undermine societal morals and public interests." The book contains cartoons that narrate the reproductive process. It was first published in 1973 and is listed on some international websites on books as being intended for children between 4 and 8 years old. Members of the youth wing of Malaysia's ruling party who recently noticed it at a bookstore complained last week. The Home Ministry said in a statement Wednesday that people caught distributing the book could be jailed three years. REUTERS
