Somerset Youth and Community Service,The boiling frog story brief. A lovely green frog is hopping along one day and she comes across a human. offering her a big juicy fly yum She s seen the human before so she thinks. she ll take the fly, The next day the human is there again with more flies This is great free flies She decides. she likes the human it gives her nice things, The day after whilst eating a few more lovely flies she is suddenly picked up by the human.
and put in a saucepan of water The frog is a bit frightened by this but the pan is big and the. water pleasant and you never know there may be more snacks The human tells her it s fine. and gives her a beetle Double yum So she decides to stay in the pan and continue with her. adventure rather than hopping straight out which she could do She is frog who likes the thrill. of a new experience, Whilst swimming around she notices the water is getting warmer but the human tells this is. OK warm swimming water is all the rage at the moment and she should relax and enjoy it. which she does after all the human has treated nicely so far Another beetle would be good. A bit later she notices the water is getting still warmer and she s having to. swim a bit faster to keep comfortable frogs are cold blooded and getting too. hot is bad for them The human tells her it s fine and describes exotic hot tubs. and saunas The human tells her she needs to grow up a bit have some fun. try new things It reminds her about all the flies she s had and gives her. another beetle She knows she is an inexperienced frog and there a lot she. doesn t know so she goes with it and tries to enjoy it. The water continues to get hotter and hotter She has to swim faster and faster to keep her. temperature down She complains to the human The human shouts at her and tells her to stop. whining If she knew the water would get this hot she would ve jumped out immediately that. she was put in She decides to leave the pan now she s had enough she doesn t like this. adventure anymore Unfortunately she s tired herself out with all her swimming so she has no. energy to jump Also the circles she s swimming in have made her dizzy She can t jump out. She can t escape she doesn t know what to do so she just keeps swimming and swimming. and swimming in the hope it will all be OK It isn t the poor adventurous frog is gradually boiled. to death And the human The human has a very tasty snack Next day it is back looking for. another frog to fool, Sexual exploitation is a bit like the boiling frog it s feels OK and even fun when the grooming. starts but before you know it you re in too deep feel you can t get out and end up being a. tasty snack for an experienced abuser, So look for the signs and avoid getting in to it and remember that unlike the poor frog there. is always always a way out just tell someone, NB The analogy is true if you drop a live frog into boiling water it will jump. straight out however if you start with cold water and heat it up the frog will. just swim faster and faster to try to control its temperature and finally be boiled. to death Please don t try this out though take our word for it.
