True Virgin Teens



After the funerals, Mr. and Mrs. Lisbon leave Grosse Pointe and eventually divorce. The Lisbon house is sold to a young couple from the Boston area. All the furniture and personal belongings of the Lisbons are thrown out or sold during a garage sale. The narrators scavenge through the trash to collect mementos they will forever save as keepsakes. 20-something years later, as middle-aged men with families, they lament the suicides as selfish acts from which they have secretly not been able to emotionally recover. The novel closes with the now-grown men confessing that they had loved the girls but had never truly understood them and that they will never know the true motives behind the suicides.

Sofia Coppola wrote the screenplay for and directed a 97-minute film version, which was shot in the summer of 1998, and released on May 19, 1999 at the Cannes Film Festival. The Virgin Suicides was Sofia Coppola's feature directorial debut. The film then opened on April 21, 2000, in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The film starred Kirsten Dunst, James Woods, Kathleen Turner, and Josh Hartnett. The film is faithful to the novel; much of the dialogue and narration is taken verbatim from its source. The film received favorable reviews and was rated R for strong thematic elements involving teens.


Ai, 21 years old and a university student, is here! Her reason for applying was that she wanted to have sex like in teen comics. Her wish came true, and after many visits, she became the sperm-begging virgin.


The reporting on this issue so far has been disappointing. The usual suspects have made conjectures which are far off the mark. The New York Times parenting blog suggested that maybe the actual rate hasn't changed that much; maybe kids today are just more modest, more demure, and less willing to talk about such things. Huh? Kids today are more modest than 20 years ago? What planet are we talking about? Here's the link to the NY Times parenting blog: -teens-really-having-less-sex/.


I have visited more than 200 schools across the United States. I have talked with kids in cities, in suburbs, and in rural areas. I think I know why fewer teens are having sexual intercourse compared with 20+ years ago. It's pretty simple. Oral sex is displacing old-fashioned penile-vaginal intercourse. The CDC report concerned only penile-vaginal intercourse. The CDC interviewers did not mention oral sex, except to make sure that each teen understood that the interviewer was asking about vaginal intercourse, not oral sex.


Reason #2 is the explosion in the availability of pornography. In 1990, many 16-year-olds had never seen a photo of a couple having oral sex. Today, any 13-year-old can type the word "oral" in any browser and, willy-nilly, links to free videos of oral sex will pop up. Children and teens look to adults for guidance about what grown-ups do. Today, many kids are looking to the Internet. Oral sex is ubiquitous in pornography, and pornography is everywhere on the Web.


Instagram is the platform choice of UK teenagers to express their true selves, follow their idols and keep up to date with the latest trends, leaving Facebook trailing in its wake, according to a study by MediaCom.


Anyone over the age of 30 will remember the menacing icebergs that became the iconic images of the Conservative government's HIV campaigns in the 1980s. While it is true that the campaign raised public awareness of the issue, many people now have doubts about the wisdom of employing such fear tactics. Tom Yocum, of the Terrence Higgins Trust, says: "One of the problems with the campaign was that it exaggerated the risk so much. People thought there was going to be this huge epidemic. When that didn't happen, I think it started a situation where people like heterosexual men thought they were immune and didn't need to practise safe sex, and that has led to the complacency and the rising rates of infections that we have today. Most people working in the field of health promotion agree that fear tactics do not work."


As with other issues, the Conservatives seem to be flirting with health policies that have been enthusiastically adopted by George W Bush in America. Abstinence campaigns, where teenagers pledge to stay virgins until their wedding day, are held up as an example that Britain would do well to adopt.


In a study by Columbia University, teenagers who had taken a virginity pledge were a third less likely to use any kind of contraceptive when they first had sex than youngsters who were not involved in abstinence projects.

Carmen Aguilar just wants to make her happily ever after come true. Except apparently \"happily ever after\" for Carmen involves being stuck in an unpaid summer internship. Now she has to perform as a party princess! In a ball gown. During the summer. In Miami.

Attempts to understand sexuality among Latino teens are also complicated in that researchers don't have the data to draw conclusions about how cultural factors influence sexuality. "People talk a lot about Latino culture and sexuality, but they typically don't measure cultural variables, such as adherence to cultural norms and attitudes, in their studies," she said.


Immigrant status also plays a role in teens' sexual risk taking. "For first-generation Latinos, recent immigration seems to be a protective factor. Families tend to bring the practices they had in their home country, and over time there's a shift as they become acculturated. For girls, being an immigrant is protective because Latin American countries are typically more conservative about sexuality than the United States is," she said.


For boys, the opposite pattern may be true because in many Latin American countries men have more freedom to explore their sexuality. In the United States, they might shift to a more conservative pattern, she said.


"First-generation teens do better in school, get into less trouble, have fewer early pregnancies, and so on, but by the second or third generation, that protective effect dissipates. A lot of immigrant families have tremendous optimism. They think, our life here is difficult, but we're here to improve our children's chances and, besides, things may be worse back home," she said. 041b061a72
