so I went out with single women this weekend and we talked about the Oprah show where two 14 year olds stated they were ready to have sex…

As you can imagine, there were many different opinions and some who preferred to stay quiet…

The questions Dr. Laura was asking the teens were amazing… I definitely thought it was a good way to talk about sex…

I don’t know that I would go as far as to buy condoms for my son… but I would give him the money and maybe even take him to a store once and show him where he could buy them… Although, in this day in age kids probably know where to get them…

I definitely agreed that the kids should be empowered by having all the information without encouraging them to have sex.

Sex has been such taboo for so long… I think it would help to talk about sex in as a positive expression of oneself… It’s another way to express ourselves to our loved one…

It might help to talk about sex as a normal and healthy action. It is a gift we give to others with whom we feel we want to share it.

Teenage girls need to understand that they have not committed a sin just because they gave in to temptation… They should be taught to feel it is ok for them to explore their bodies with or without someone…

We need to educate our girls about how to decide when they are ready to explore their bodies with someone else and how to choose the right person to share their bodies with…

Just like we need to teach our teenage boys to be respectful of teenage girls…

It shouldn’t be okay for the teenage boys to score and taboo for the teenage girls to score…

There is definitely an unbalance among the boys and girls… which is the same as the unbalance seen between men and women…

Give everyone options and the whole story, good and bad, about having sex. I think it will help us out in the long run…
