Heads out of the sand? It's no secret the ability of the female human body to deliver a baby even in teenage years. What does seem to be a mystery in our society is how to educate young adults and pre adults how to handle becoming a young man or woman. The plumbing is taught in high school, unfortunately a whole lot of unlearning has to happen to prevent unwanted or unplanned pregancy. Our society has made too big a deal about sex and everyone feels he or she has to "complete a mission" before they are recognized as adults. Our schools aren't able to teach that. It is really something that is learned from society at large. The old phrase, "it takes a village to raise a child" seems to apply more to learning accepted societal norms.Maybve our villages need more honest dialog about the power of the young libido and how to advise teens to handle it. It seems a shame to have 20 minutes of fun handicap someone's life and limit their child's chances as well.

buzzwhack..well said, I must agree with you...it is the old "don't touch and don't discuss" routine which makes the temptation even greater...kids think, "what is the mystery here if they won't talk about"???...it is taboo in this country and most parents will not discuss it...it is like it a dirty...

"it is like a dirty..." Oh yeah, the trailing periods say it all. Germany has nudist beaches, America produces Knocked Up and American Pie, Sigh. Once guys and girls get over the horizontal rhumba, they learn life has many more important things going on. Now maybe the crass commercialization of it by Paris, Pammy et al looks like free thinking but it only shows me how bound up they were in the first place. Me, I like the French. They drink wine at the lunch table, the dinner table, the young kids have little portions as well. result? Alcohol is no big mystery or lure to them. Now that immersion approach would be a disaster with sex. No, I'm saying we need to demystify it somehow in a tasteful way. Don't ask me how though!

Pleasant images?

Kids groping each other under the dinner table while sipping watered down Chateau du Dundas??

Of course that's not what was meant, but you may be on to something with the demystifying approach.

Open and frank communication between parents and their kids would be a pretty good place to start, though.

And please, let's not get any form of government involved; they would only screw things up (pun most definitely intended)!
