    I blame the parents mostly for this problem of kids thinking "oral sex" isn't sex:

    CHICAGO (Reuters) - One in five U.S. teenagers say they have engaged in oral sex, an activity that some adolescents view as not sex at all and certainly less risky than intercourse, a report released Monday said.

    The survey of 580 children with a mean age of 14-1/2 found 20 percent said they had engaged in oral sex, compared to 14 percent who said they had engaged in sexual intercourse.

    In addition, one-third of the multi-ethnic 9th graders surveyed said they intended to have oral sex within the next six months and nearly one-fourth planned to have intercourse during the period. It was more common for boys to have performed oral sex on girls than vice versa, the report said.

    It isn't just the parents, although that is major.

    It's the sex-saturated movies, TV shows, magazines, radio shows, advertisements...

    It's the pro-sex culture fomented in the colleges and universities.

    It's such attitudes being taught in the K-12 classrooms in the PC sex classes.

    It's due to the anti-Christianity and anti-moral attitude being promoted everywhere you look by the secularists.

    It's the ACLU et al working on our culture, as in promoting homosexuality, choice for teenagers, anti-parental attitudes, etc.

    It's a President who lies about having sex because it's oral.

    It's about a whole political party supporting that untruth to protect their power.

    etc.

    It's the parents not trying at all to control what kind of crap gets fed into their kids' brains... which are just like a sponge and soak up all the perversity the world can throw at them.. .:/

    Parents can talk til thier blue in the face but kids will still experiment. This is a behavior that a parent is very unlikely to know is occuring. And there's the old catch all excuse " But it doesn't hurt anyone ".

    Unfortunately too many of the parents are already just as jaded as the culture. Like the blind leading the blind. Incrementalism/slippery slope has taken over and the lines are blurred.

    That is why those who are actually aware and responsible need to lead our country, the parents and culture back to sanity, light and life. Those who who promote death, darkness and perversity have been in control for far too long. Of course that is why the Left is so darn scared of religious people as they know where to draw the line. Those are the parents who have yanked their kids from the public school sewers and placed them in private schools.

    I also think it's because so many parents I know are so incredibly selfish when it come to their kids..

    They'd rather both work so they can have "nice things" rather than spend time with their kids...

    Today's insatiable appetite for new homes, cars, electronics, and other artificial means of making us feel better about ourselves has driven parents (IMO) to new heights of selfishdom..

    True, parents have lost focus on what is really important in their life until it becomes too late. I think the "insatiable appetite" comes primarily from the imbalance of activities. Compare one hour a week at church with several hours in front of TV. In both cases they are with their kids, but there is almost no quality in life by watching TV/advertising and plenty of opportunity for the slimeball garbage to be promoted into the family's consciousness.
