Posted on 08/16/2013 8:40:31 AM PDT by madprof98
Forget traditional sleepovers full of facials and chick flicks, sexual sleepovers are the latest fad or so The Huffington Post Blog says.
The Huffington Posts Soraya Chemaly asked parents in her latest article, How Do You Feel About Sex and Teenage Sleepovers? She argued that parents should encourage them, unless they just like porn and think it's a fine substitute. Chemaly schemed, Why would you create a situation where your children are forced to hide, sneak around, be dishonest, be uncomfortable, take unnecessary risks and make uninformed decisions about their physical and emotional health?
Drawing inspiration from the book How To Think More About Sex by Alain de Botton (perhaps more well known for authoring Religion for Atheists), Chemaly built her argument. Why not teach children, she asked, how to have sex well, the way you teach them how to do other things?

If people were wondering what the next leftist "liberation" cause is likely to be, we may have found it.
These used to be called “orgies”. And forgive me, but “they’re going to do it anyway” sounds a little weak when it comes to orgies.
You can find nearly identical articles in Readers Digest back issues from the late 60’s/early 70’s.
Which pretty much explains how we got to where we are today.
May be a bad choice of words.
I'm thinking she might have only been a few decades off. I wouldn't put it past some lib kook to propose every school have an "Exploration Room" where kids can explore their sexuality with individual or group of their choosing. Since according to libs, your "right" to sexual freedom is the most important right in existence and shouldn't but up to the whims of uptight moralistic parents.
Wasn’t Readers Digest just a conglomerant magazine of other magazine articles?
I don’t think they had much of thier own content did they?
And people wonder why so many prospective parents are taking a pass on having kids.
RD went through this weird period where they would select articles to the right of Genghis Khan on foreign policy and defense issues, and from the streets of Haight-Ashbury on social issues and sexual mores.

Huff Post etiquette also calls for the progressive parent to provide marijuana, some alcohol, condoms and easy referrals to planned parenthood. Brownies optional. Decadence on display.
It would be nice if somebody wrote
“How to connect your loving heart with your horny body”.
“How to take other people seriously, and quit using them.”
“The real value of sexual purity”
“How to get people who don’t know what innocence is and why it is important to shut up.”
Given that this is a Leftist article, the choice of words is probably intentional...
“If people were wondering what the next leftist “liberation” cause is likely to be, we may have found it.”
No...that will be when parents are encouraged to ‘join in’
Ohh. You went there! :D

Congratulations! You have won the internet.
Where would you like it delivered?
Leave it in the trash can out back. :-)
Any idiot who touts the Netherlands as a great example of the joys of sexual liberation for teenagers is a jackwad of the first degree. The Netherlands is rather infamous for their tolerance (heck outright affirmation)of pedophilia.
Wealthy European families would sometimes call on a young man of good stock to be with a daughter so as to insure her coupling would yield a healthy, intelligent child. Left to her own, she might join with a lesser boy.
Even today a similar thing happens in some countries under an arranged marriage system.
I'm not sure what the answer is. My feeling is that any new social rules ought always be made in such a way that they harmonize with God (or nature, or higher power, etc).
I know that anything is preferable to what we have now -- girls and boys making kids they can't take care of, that go on to make more girls and boys they can't take care of. It's out of control and the country is filling up with base born products of base beds. Chicago is full of out of control youth that are killing each other.
Adults need to be more involved with guiding reproduction and sex because teens, if left to themselves, are not always going to make the right choices, and society at large will pay a price.
I don't teach them other things with everybody naked, grinding and bumping against each other, thank you very much.
A generation that has no idea of the necessity of writing “Thank you” notes after a social event where gifts were exchanged or received has no business at an orgy.
I knew the writing of “thank you” notes after such a event would be more time consuming than not so I always declined invites to such soirees. Besides who does not dread that awkward “haven’t I seen you before?” moments already without bringing into just what you might have seen before into the mix?
Age of puberty has declined to approx. 12.
Age of typical first marriage is now in the 30’s (after we get a career on track and get the student loans under control.)
Is that a problem? Sure. HuffPo is proposing an absurd remedy though.
I married at 24 and my wife was 20. Not being Mormons, most around us thought that to be absurdly young. But perhaps that is a discussion worth having.
More than twenty years ago Rush Limbaugh announced that a member of his studio staff had converted the guest bedroom in his house into a place where his teenage son & son’s girlfriend could have safe sex without the risks of cheap motels or car backseats. The staffer’s name was Joel Santesteban.
Callers were outraged, especially one woman who was so livid that she couldn’t even say his name right and kept referring to “Mister Aldo La Screwerini” as a poor example of a parent. Rush tried to correct her but she kept fuming about how he should fire “Mister Screwerini!!!”
As Rush says, truth is always stranger than fiction because fiction requires logic.
When I had young impressionable children I wouldn’t let my 75 YO father and his girlfriend sleep in the same room when they came for visits. It would have given my kids the wrong message. I still won’t let my grown daughters and their boyfriends stay in the same room during visits. My house, my rules.
Oh, gee, I don't know. Maybe because of THE LAW!!!? Putting aside the amorality of it, does the phrase "statutory rape" ring any bells, you morons?
And don’t forget the community organizers ground forces who will be paid to offer instructions and register the participants to vote...democrat.
Yeah, I think the age of consent is what, 14 or 15 in Holland?
And one routinely hears stories of couples that were together for 50+years after running away together as teens because their parents disapproved.
There's got to be an approach to all this that is compatible with the spirit of conservatism. Turning a blind eye to what is happening right now among teens with respect to sex and pregnancy is going to lead to disaster. We're on our way to becoming a poverty stricken socialist 3rd world country that spends all its money taking care of the poor that go on to make more poor.
I think teachers that call for contraception in schools see this coming. They're on the front lines. They see the next generation. Many of them are out of control and wild making more young and wild kids.
I'm not sure contraception in schools is the right move, though, but something needs to be done and done quickly.
Heading towards Brave New World at warp speed.
So the huffpost is becoming more like cosmopolitan. That’s the nearest ariana huffington will come to ever being on the cover of cosmo.
Damn! Where was HuffPo when I was a teenager? The backseats of cars were just SO uncomfortable, especially the backseat of a Mustang.
