I Hope Kids Make Out Tonight

Saturday, September 21st, 2013

WARNING: This post contains graphic descriptions of human sexuality.  It may not be suitable for parents.

Parents don’t like to think about their teenage kids having sex. I understand that. We just get into trouble when they DENY their kids are having it.

“My little Susie doesn’t do THAT!” Right.  I used to know little Susie and she did do that – plus a lot of other stuff.  These kids aren’t getting pregnant and STD’s from the Tooth Fairy.  It’s time we accepted reality and help them make better choices.

People believe we have sex education in schools but what we mostly have are organ recitals.  A clear list of choices (including abstinence, “Sex IS NOT Love” and “How to Tell Your Boyfriend “No”) should be taught early. One of those choices should be outercourse.

Although definitions vary, outercourse is sex play without vaginal, anal, or oral penetration.  Outercourse can include bathing together, hot talk, erotic fantasy, spicy role-plays, sensual massage, mutual masturbation, and dry sex (aka: dry humping or frottage).

Outercourse is simple, convenient, and free and can satisfy both partners.  But the main advantages are there’s virtually no chance for unwanted pregnancies or diseases.

Skeptical?  Think kids will just slide into “home” without rounding first, second, and third base?  I don’t think so.  When the sexually-naive ones learn there are many other exciting, acceptable end options to intercourse, we’ll have fewer problems.

We should convince young girls that their boyfriends don’t have to hit “homers” right away and often just playing the other bases can be enough for a whole season or two or more.
