Ethan Hawke Encourages Young People To Have More Sex

By: Ami Angelowicz / August 16, 2013

“I was very, very lucky. I lost my virginity to someone I cared for very much and who cared very much for me. The thing that’s so important for young people to know is that, if you use protection, sex is one of the few vices you can have as a young person.”

 Ethan Hawke talks talks sex in the September issue of Elle. His statement struck me as odd and a little bit tone deaf. I don’t think young people need to be encouraged to see sex as a “vice,” but they do need to be more well-informed about the sex they’re having. [Elle]
