Germany has launched a new website to help school refugees on the sexual etiquettes in the west, in a new bizarre campaign created to deal with the crisis.

Refugees in Germany are being taught how to have sexual relations properly, in the latest odd attempt to help those that have arrived on the shores of Europe.

A $136,000 sexual education website created by German's Federal Centre for Health Education has just gone live, detailing explicit information designed to help migrants understand how to perform both basic and advanced sexual acts.

The move, one suspects, stems from several sexual assault incidents attributed to the new arrivals on New Year's Eve.

It is expected to 're-educate' refugees on the sexual norms in the West and follows informative pool-side signs in Munich that urge migrants not to grope females in bikinis.

Among the topics discussed are sexually transmitted diseases, LGBQT rights and ways to heighten sexual pleasure.

But for the majority-Muslim refugees, the website is unlikely to excite and critics are already accusing the campaign to be condescending.

Sex scientist, Heinz-Jurgen Voss said said assuming Syrian and Iraqi refugees know less about sexual pleasure than Germans was "racist".

"People have bigger problems," Nuri Koseli, a spokesman for Islamic Relief Germany told The Washington Post.

"Most of them are staying in emergency shelters for a long time without any access to private spaces. To confront them with such an issue in that situation might be counter-productive."

The Syrian refugee crisis has been labelled the worst humanitarian disaster since the Second World War and has sparked fierce international debate.

More than one million people clandestinely crosses from Turkey to Greece in 2015, and some 150,000 have made the trip since the start of this year, with over 700 dying while trying to reach the camps scattered across EU countries.
