Blogger Alex Schulman objected that the clip is too sexualised, with the vaginas “prudent, innocent and sweet”, while the apparently erect penises are “wild things”.
Parents in Sweden complain about a cartoon video for children’s channel Barnkanalen showing penises and vaginas smiling and dancing.
The one-minute clip for Barnkanalen – Sweden’s equivalent of CBeebies (a BBC early childhood network)– shows cartoon penises and vaginas smiling and dancing to the tune of a song which employs words perhaps sometimes used by small children to refer to their private parts.
“Here comes Willie at a run, he has no pants,” goes the song. “Twinkle is cool, you better believe it, even on an old lady … Willie and Twinkle, what a great gang!”
The clip, viewed almost three million times on YouTube and Facebook, was produced for Bacillakuten, a programme that aims to educate children aged three to six about the body.
