Your kid in college has probably had sex. Sorry to break it to you. But if your rule is "no sex before marriage", your kid is lying to you. Rightfully so, too, because he/she is an adult and your rule doesn't apply to them.

Thanks to the Sexual Revolution (and women's supposed "empowerment") men hold all the cards. A woman feels pressured to "put out" in hopes that a guy is interested enough to call her again because if she doesn't, he easily finds someone who will.

It worked for me. I got married at 25 and was a virgin. I served in the Armed Forces also. But I did go to a Catholic elementary school where my sex education occurred.

But no man would ever consider marrying a ready made family. For the girl, having sex was not something entered into lightly.

Well, I'm glad you told her. I didn't have the heart to.

Have you heard about the holiday gift some American girls could be getting? Emergency contraception!

During Thanksgiving week the American Academy of Pediatrics announced their recommendation that "morning- after" prescriptions be issued to adolescent girls in advance of need, as a matter of routine.

"There's no good reason" to disagree with the recommendation, the San Francisco Chronicle asserts. But there are actually plenty of them.

Besides being deeply insulting to the dignity of adolescents, this approach exposes the reality that when we talk about sex, we all too often put good health and sense aside. "Women's health" routinely assumes promiscuity, whatever the age, despite...
