my wife used to work at a video rental store. she would frequently have people asking her if a movie had any sex in it because they didn't want
their kids watching sex. she would reply "no, but it's VERY violent." they would say "oh, that's ok, i just can't let them see people having
sounds pretty f'd up that something natural is taboo but killing people is ok.
just wanted to add that maybe if kids were exposed to sex more and educated then we wouldn't have pregnancy epidemics. think of it this way: kids
in america get drunk, have parties, go wild, etc because as far as society is concerned they won't drink until their 21. which is obviously naive.
we had an exchange student from germany stay with us for a year. he said they don't really have as much problem with that because they can drink at
16 and it's not a big deal like it is here. point is, shielding someone from something is just going to make them more curious. i'm not saying you
should sit your 10 year old in front of a porn video, but if you can manage to take away the mystery, you take away the curiosity.
