Watching an episode of TABOO on teen sex ... a few questions came to mind.
What do you think of Purity Balls? Generally these are for girls only. Shouldn't there be purity pledge for the boys as well? If you don't know what it is, it is where girls, normally with their fathers, openly pledge to remain virgins until they marry. Usually has a religious connection.
What do you think about a "love hut"? In Cambodia, the father will build the daughter(s) a "love hut" so they can "try out" boys before getting choosing the one they want to be married to. One girl they spoke with has had her hut since the age of 13. One girl said that they could tell when a boy had watched porn movies and that he would not be considered worthy.
Why is sex considered such a taboo? Especially when talking to children. Shouldn't we be more open with our children when it comes to sex?
