Students in Sweden, are angry after a school officially called girls who are sleeping with guys, a “mattress.”

The school has printed a test question as part of sex education that reads: “What do you call a girl who sleeps around? The answer is a mattress,” according to photo uploaded on Twitter.

Students at the school in Ostlyckeskolan, Alingsas, were asked more than a hundred questions on the topics of love, sex and relationships.

The test was given to 13-year-old students. Parents as well as students of the school have reacted angrily because of the test question.

School officials insisted that the test was part of efforts to inform students about love and relationships, and to explain some of the words that young people find in everyday life.

The photo of the test question, which was uploaded to the Internet, has since gone viral.
