I think Amanda nicely gets at how things have oddly gone backwards when it comes to sex issues in our culture. When I was growing up, pre-marital sex was MORALLY WRONG and also, too would probably kill you, but there wasn't the weird level of denial that I see now about whether or not teens actually are having sex. We did have discussions of contraception. Somehow I knew about Planned Parenthood (no idea how). It seems we're more in a world where everyone just pretends it doesn't happen.
