The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) is a division of the American Library Association that likes to offer sexual advice for teens (check: Healthy Relationships for Teens). One of the web sites they recommend (under Resources for Teens: Sexuality and Sexual Behavior) is the Coalition for Positive Sexuality. The organization can be also found at Wikipedia. Parents of teens, meet the
Just Say Yes is about having a positive attitude towards sexuality — gay, straight, bisexual or whatever. It’s about saying “yes” to sex you do want, and “no” to sex you don’t. It says there’s nothing wrong with you if you decide to have sex, and nothing wrong with you if you decide not to. (Is it just me, or did you also notice they start with “gay”? And why is there no link to “whatever”?)
Let’s be a bit more explanatory, shall we?
Women have sex with women, men have sex with men, women have sex with men –and sometimes the best sex is with yourself! (They did it again!)
And you have a thing or two to learn, Pa and Ma. Heterosexuals “feel sexual and/or romantic attraction mostly to people of the other sex” (bold emphasis added). The
BDSM is a combination of three terms: BD (Bondage & Discipline), DS (Dominance & Submission), and SM (Sadism & Masochism). BDSM includes a wide range of activities involving safe, sane, consensual playing with erotic power. BDSM is NOT about abuse. Everyone involved understands and plays by the rule (bold emphasis added).
OK, but what about just good ordinary “intercourse”?
Intercourse is when something (a dick, finger, dildo, cucumber, whatever) penetrates your butt, which is ANAL SEX, or your vagina, which is VAGINAL SEX. Both women and men can enjoy anal intercourse (bold emphasis added). (Anal fixation, anyone?)
More useful advice for teens from these very thoughtful people:
– get into role play (for instance, tie someone up and pleasure them) …
– look at sexy pictures and videos …
– make up or act out fantasies, talk dirty, dress up, strip down, or cross-dress (dressing in the clothes of the other gender) …
– use cock rings, nipple clamps (or clothespins), or vibrators on your own or someone else’s body …
– cum on someone’s belly, back, feet, chest –instead of in them …
– play with your own or someone else’s ass or vagina, put your fingers, dildoes, vegetables, or buttplugs into them.
So, next time they decide to experiment sexually, don’t send your teens out to the world ignorant. Let them read the
And if that inconvenience happens –you know, like pregnancy— and your daughter, like “can’t handle having a baby right now,” never mind: she can, like count on abortion. Like totally! And don’t let her forget: “it’s harder to get an abortion after 3 months, so get help soon!” Like stat!
Oh, and if your teens are addicted they “can still protect themselves from HIV. The best thing to do is to USE A CLEAN NEEDLE
A friend of mine [That would be D.Laigle] was so shocked with the site, he decided to pass for a 14 year-old girl and wrote them an E-mail. He wrote that for her parents she was “too young to even think about having sex” and asked what age was the right one to start. The answer came from (children’s Yoga teacher) Andrea Abrams Creel: “There is no ‘right’ time to have sex. However, having sex takes a lot of responsibility. […] you have to be responsible for preventing pregnancy and STDs. That means using a condom EVERY time you have sex, going to the doctor regularly to get checkups and tested for STDs, discussing birth control options with your doctor -and making sure you use your birth control consistently and correctly, and discussing previous sex partners and
Andrea –who was aware she was advising a minor— did not hesitate: “Having sex is a very big step, and it should be something that YOU want to do”! The girl mentioned her plan to have sex with an 18 year-old boyfriend. The advice came: “Many states have laws that say it is illegal for someone over 18 to have sex with someone who is not an adult. The laws are different in each state -in some states you have to be 16, other states 14. […] If it is illegal in your state and your boyfriend gets caught, he could go to jail. This website can tell you the laws in your state: http://www.ageofconsent.com/.” Nowhere does Andrea mention the minor’s parents, but “a trusted adult.”
The second letter my friend sent, Andrea realized she was dealing with an adult male. Her advice changed: “It might be a good idea to talk about these things with an adult who you trust such as a clergy member, a teacher, or guidance counselor.” And according to Andrea, “No one has the right to make you feel uncomfortable or do things that invade your privacy.” In short, parents, the “right to privacy” applies to your kids and supersedes your authority –like, don’t even think about, like, telling your kids what to do.
In a series of E-mail exchanges with me, Andrea (*) explained that butt, cum and dick “are not vulgar words [but] names of body parts and sexual identity.” These “are generally the words used in the medical sphere.” Teens should have access to “accurate and comprehensive information about how their body works and about sex.” “
