Teenage girls would be given lessons at school on the benefits of abstaining from under-age sex under a Bill presented to the Commons yesterday.

Nadine Dorries MP said pupils were shown how to put condoms on bananas and to self-diagnose sexually transmitted diseases, but not taught about the virtues of virginity.

The Labour MP Chris Bryant said it was "the daftest piece of legislation I have seen".
