Personal, Social and Health Education for Young People with Learning Disabilities
through music and song
Songs by musician and registered nurse
Edwin Humphreys
The songs you can hear on this website are designed to help a person with a learning disability learn about personal, social and health education and sexual health.
The songs are appropriate for a range of ages – each song has its age-relevance.
Click on a menu item to the left to hear samples of the songs. To buy the CD and activities book for educators, please click on the Songs for Your Body title at the head of this page.
This is a sample of the full song on the CD.
FEELING GOOD is aimed at the person who masturbates and has little insight into the need to do it privately, and the person who possibly does not masturbate as a result of misunderstanding the social culture and attitude towards masturbation, thinking it is ‘wrong’, ‘dirty’, or ‘bad’ to do it at all. The intention of the song is to give an accurate message about masturbation: that it is OK to masturbate if you choose and OK not to; that it can feel good; and that you must masturbate only in a private place.
