Oral Sex and the Role of the Media

16 Aug

The issue of teens and oral sex has been under high coverage recently with the media suggesting catastrophic outcomes due to this “oral epidemic.” Specifically, a recently published book entitled Oral Sex is the New Goodnight Kiss, suggests that there is an “alarming” trend in middle class families, where “teenage girls are trading sex for, well, just about anything.” So, is the media on to something, does all of this talk about oral sex among teens really reflect “how these times are a change-in,” specifically adolescent behaviour? Moreover, is there really a “teen sexual revolution” sweeping the nation? Or, is this just yet another example of an uncalled-for media induced panic?

    I wonder what’s so alarming about it? I mean, it’s not like the media doesn’t know, by way of research or their own experiences, that oral sex has been around like forever. At one point, they were riffing about teen sex and all the pregnancies that were occurring and the call for abstinence was put forth and, yeah, a lot of teens have answered that call… and have exchanged intercourse with oral sex. Sure, it’s just as potentially dangerous as anything else sexual you can do these days so, what, now they’re putting the call out to not give head – ever?

    I’d agree that giving head has become like currency to some kids – but how is that different than the way adults have always behaved? Even I have had women say to me that if I did such-and-such for them, they’d give me a blowjob and, yeah, maybe it’s too like prostituting one’s self, if you wanna put it like that… but, again, it’s not anything that hasn’t been going on and for at least as long as I can remember. To that end, in my youth, more girls were willing to suck you than fuck you because, if nothing else, they weren’t going to get preggers like that. It’s even seen as being less risky than intercourse and, oddly, not as personal as giving up da booty; you can give anyone a blow job but you’re not gonna let just let anyone stick it in.

    Good posting – glad I found it!
