We educate children about driving under the influence, they take classes, and are required to pass written exam and a live driving exam, but how much do kids really know about sex? It's not enough to know how a sperm and egg join, or how to use a condom, or even how to know when it's really wanted. Perhaps one of the biggest consequences of the sex liberation movement is that it makes it so easy to minimize sex. I was fortunate to have a mom who spoke about sex openly while also conveying the awe of sex as a powerful, potentially beautiful, experience.
From the point of view of the Public Good, how does sex affect people? I'll just leave that as an open-ended question, because there are too many answers to count. Sex affects individuals in a myriad of negative and positive ways, and it also impacts society as a whole, obviously, it CREATES society.
Do you think we as a society have lost something through the Sex Revolution? Has it hurt or helped, or both? What do you think your role is, as a mother, in creating good attitudes about sex? What should society do, collectively, to help shape good attitudes about sex and also healthier consequences from sex?
