Teens, More "Sexually Confident," Enjoy Much More Oral Sex!

"Sexually confident" was the phraseology the Washington Post used to describe teens' increasing indulgence in oral sex.

Before the WaPo deleted the phrase from the website.

Liberalism is weird. In many ways, it does seem to be the ideology parodically assigned to Repubicans on the Simpsons -- "We want what's worst for everybody!"

It is simply bizarre that adults should appluad teenagers' increasing acquaintance with sex and oral sex as a sign of growing "sexual confidence."

I suppose I get the liberals' basic point on this issue: It's not the worst thing in the world that could happen, and perhaps conservatives do spend too much time and energy fretting about it. (Although I suppose many people with teenaged kids would disagree.)

But even if one finds some agreement with that basic point -- "let's not go crazy and start saying this is the end of civilization" -- how does increased sexual activity among teens barely removed from childhood constitute a good thing to be applauded by the nation's cultural elites?

The worst possible thing? Perhaps not. But a good thing? A sign of "confidence"?

Maybe we should just label it a sign of "maturity and sophistication," too. Like smoking cigarettes!

Because, you know, everyone says that smoking makes you look "cooler" and "older." And damnit, aren't they right?

Next in the WaPo: Condoms Are For Cowards!!!
