I Hope Kids Make Out Tonight

WARNING: This post contains graphic descriptions of human sexuality.  Teenage discretion is advised 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.

    If you’re talking about the kids in the burbs, I agree with you 100%.

    However, we also have to consider the teens from poorer backgrounds in the cities and rural areas. Let’s face it, it’s the girls who call the shots, so to speak, and many of them WANT to get pregnant. Having a child brings status, something to love and be loved by, a ticket out of a crappy home, and an emotional bond with the daddycita. If smoking a stupid cigarette makes a kid feel “grown up”, you can imagine what pushing a stroller does for a fragile ego. They don’t lack knowledge; they lack self-esteem (a term I’ve grown to loathe, by the way).

    You know, we currently have an epidemic of grown women deciding to have children out of wedlock because they see marriage as a step down. Why be tied down to and take care of a man if it can be avoided? Seeing millions of adults making that choice can’t help but influence the behavior of the younger set,
