Bristol Palin and OctoMom take note! The UK’s National Health Service is using scare tactics to prevent teen pregnancy. This public service announcement doesn’t make a ton of sense, but it’s disturbing. Screaming children run across a playground, crowd around one girl, and suddenly a baby’s head pops out from between her legs. The camera is “Blair Witch Project” shaky.

Just as soon as we’ve tired of hearing, using, typing, writing the word “cougar,” a new type of female has emerged from the forest. According to Dr. Jennifer Austin Leigh, the “number one teen girl expert in America,” men have another feline to worry about — the “hyena.” “Hyena” describes a much younger woman/girl, who preys upon and dominates young men. The female hyena (the real one), you see, is much more sexually aggressive than her male counterpart — just like many of today’s teen girls and young women, says Best. She coined the term in her new book, “Laid or Loved?

Why isn’t anyone appalled that some perverted loser totally hacked into a 15 year old’s cell phone and posted her private photos on the internet? Whatever.

When Oprah talked about oral sex on her show, people were aghast at how slutty today’s teens had become. But author Tim Harford would probably disagree. In The Logic of Life, his follow-up to The Undercover Economist, Harford looks at various hidden human behaviors. One of his findings is that teens aren’t more promiscuous now than before, they’ve just shifted from intercourse to oral sex. Read it and weep, O! [Bloomberg] Keep reading »
