WHAT?

Yesterday, I overheard a kid talking very knowledgably about a topic with which adults would have had problems understanding just 10 years ago. It was about an abnormal sexual fetish. The kid was explaining how it worked, and how the person got 'pleasure' from it. When I was a kid, there was very little in the way of 'adult' entertainment you could get your hands on. Unless you had a dad with a subscription, an older brother, or an older friend who'd loan it to ya (none of which I had), you had to deal with torn out pages from magazines that made the rounds or were lost by some other kid. Most knowledge of a sexual nature was passed by word of mouth, or from obscure library books that were mostly text, and very little, if any, illustration.

Not now. I guess things started to change when I was a teenager. VCRs started to become readily available to every household, and porn was soon to follow. Cassettes made the rounds. Still, even those were NOTHING compared to the plethora of sexual content currently made available by the 'net. I know I was more sexually aware than people of my parents' generation, but today's children are growing in sexual knowledge in more than an exponential fashion. It's like the dam broke, and all the illicit content has poured freely to whoever, whenever, wherever. It woulda been a wet dream for 12 year old Tonewah.

However, I'm scared of what this is doing to kids. I know being exposed to what little stuff I managed to scavenge when I was younger has affected me negatively. How much more will it affect the youth of today? I guess we won't know for a while.

It's prolly the best that kids these days are comein up in the sex generation cuz when they grow up they will in turn make laws that say "If you want to have sex with someone you have to go to court and get it approved" which will lead to outlawing sex all together and turn to cloneing..


Some band said it best when they said "it's the end of the world as we know it.."

Glad to see this blog. I'm finding the same thing happening. Uh not to the point you described that i have heard from my own kids but enough that i want to scream "Where's the plug!?" Plug the !#$! hole in the damn! Its disturbing to me and my own young daughter. When we go through the grocery store line and she is offended by the covers of the magazines to the point she gasps and turns them around...I think there is problem. When a vic secret commercial comes on and she covers her eyes cause she is afraid the woman is gonna take her clothes off...thats a problem. As a very young girl she is being slammed with images she is fighting not to have to see. And none of that is even considered as offensive to adults...but it is to her...ALREADY. I'm at a loss of how to prevent it. Suggestions welcome.

U want to kill someone or set something ablaze as a normal response to most anything..right?..lol

She's 7. I just dont think she likes seeing anybody's naked "junk" in her face. I dont think thats homophobic. I think that would be normal. Your a grown man. Surely you've been conditioned to have a different response to a vic commercial? :P

Hmmm well i dont know if kids that age are on a semi perm acid trip. It would be hard to tell if they are running from you all the time though..lol

I agree with your first comment. I think that has a chance of happening in the future. I kinda like it. "if you want to have sex with someone you have to go to court and get it approved." LOL

Yeah but if that was to happen that would take out the meaningless sex that we all sometimes have.. Could you imange going to a bar hooking up with someone and you can't have sex with them cuz it's illeagal and if you get caught you go to jail "No i'm not talking bout the jap hookers i sometimes bring home either" lol but at the same time it would make for a cleaner AIDS and std world...
