"Young people talk to me about what to do if they’re being pressed for sex. I tell them what I believe… if you’re in a situation where you cannot get out of sex, offer a blow job. I’m not embarrassed to tell them." – Sharon Stone
Obviously, idiotic (though hilarious) advice. I’m equally dismayed, however, with the suggested path offered by religious or conservative organizations around abstinence-only education, particularly if it comes at the cost of real sex ed in the classroom. Sharon Stone, after all, does not speak for the pro-sex ed, pro-individual choice, pro-"have-sex-if-you-want-to-it-feels-great-just-be-safe" contingent.
The book Prude, by the way, seems like the latest book to sensationalize the sexualization of America’s youth, replete with dirty little anecdotes designed to shock and awe parents into a state of oblivion. Enough, already.
