The Goodnight Kiss.
February 1, 2010 | NeW Staff
A friend recently sent me this horrifying video of a Good Morning America segment called What You Don’t Know About Teen Sex. This segment was based on a documentary called Oral Sex is the New Goodnight Kiss by Sharlene Azam. Ms. Azam exposes the new trends in teen dating and sex practices. She spoke of girls as young as ten engaging in prostitution and shared that girls are so far beyond an innocent goodnight kiss that oral sex is becoming the standard.
“If you talk to teens, they’ll tell you ‘It’s no big deal’. In fact, they don’t even consider it sex. They don’t consider a lot of things sex, which is how much has changed in just, you know, a generation. Where something as intimate as oral sex can be…. nothing.”
We must encourage girls to value themselves and protect their hearts and bodies from the negative repercussions of the casual hook-up culture. It is terrifying and heartbreaking that young girls value their virtue so little. Sexual activities like oral sex and prostitution are considered “no big deal” and girls are even proud to engage in these activities. These pre-teens exchange everything from homework to clothes for their sexual performances. It seems that this is precisely where the sexual revolution has led women astray by making them believe that sex is “no big deal” and that there is nothing wrong with experimenting and liberating oneself by means of sex.
How can we fix this trend to save a generation of disillusioned young women?
