North Carolina mom Patty Skudlarek says she would prefer her 18-year-old son have sex in her home. Why? Because she thinks its “safer” there. “With the kids having sex at home, it’s a safer environment, because, you know, it’s clean. And usually the place they keep the condoms are in their bedroom.

Lifetime Original Movies are always tabloid-y (my pops calls them “women in distress films that Mom watches”), but the upcoming flick “The Pregnancy Pact” really takes the cake.

My love-hate relationship with “The Tyra Show” strikes again: Yesterday Tyra hosted her first-ever Teens and Parents: Sex Summit all about teen sex. Alas, calling it a “summit” is a rather grand way to describe 13-, 14- and 15-year-old girls dishing about the dozens of boys they’ve slept with, while their moms sit backstage… READ MORE »

Woe betide the sexual being who has a kinky fetish but doesn’t have internet access.

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. READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

About one in four American teens will contract an STD, mainly because many fail to use condoms routinely and consistently. A study of 1,400 people ages 15 to 21 who had had unprotected sex in the previous 90 days found that they didn’t use condoms because they believe they reduce sexual pleasure and were concerned… READ MORE »

…but I was also a TOTAL bore. Another round of “scandalous” Miley Cyrus photos popped up in the tabloids this weekend, and everyone is totes dismayed that lil’ Miley actually took pictures of herself revealing her stomach and taking a shower in a white t-shirt.

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… READ MORE »
