Did a Florida substitute teacher demonstrate to a class of sixth grade students an explicit sex ed lesson involving a strap-on sex toy to satisfy Common Core requirements? There is no truth to reports that a Florida woman taught sixth grade students an explicit sex ed lesson which involved a strap-on sex toy.
The InfoWars web site published the article on 15 Sept. 15, 2014, reporting that a shocking story occurred at a Jacksonville, Fla., school. The story alleges that a 39-year-old teacher had been suspended for giving an explicit sex-ed “lesson” to sixth grade students. You can read it below.
Shocking images out of a classroom in Jacksonville, Florida illustrate how 11-12 year olds in 6th grade are being taught how to use strap-on dildos amidst a debate about sexual content finding its way into other Common Core subjects, material which has been attacked by some as pornographic.
The pictures were taken by a student with a cellphone camera. They show a teacher demonstrating how to use a strap-on sex toy in a number of different positions.
In one image, the teacher even shows how to insert the strap-on while her buttocks are in the air and her legs up over her head.
In another image, the woman shows the children how to wear a harness to which the strap-on is attached.
The photographs included with the InfoWars story were not actual pictures of a Florida substitute teacher named Sharon Mercer, but rather pictures of Carlyle Jansen, who is the founder and owner of Good for Her. Jansen’s company is a progressive, female-friendly sex store in Toronto, Ontario.
Jansen told Snopes that she teaches sex ed classes for adult audiences and that the photos displayed in the InfoWars article were taken at a university-level and not a sixth grade. class. Jansen noted that she “would not have done those positions and discussed strap-ons to that extent in a high school setting.”
Here are some examples of people sharing the fake news on social media.

Rather, it would appear that the photos were reused for the outrageous story. As quickly as it appeared, the InfoWars post evaporated as it was scrubbed from that site. Snopes explained that another source for the claim about Sharon (or Sandra) Mercer, the “proud LGBT” teacher was traced to a post made by someone whose biography Go to the full article.
