50 Percent of Teens having Oral Sex
The Clinton / Lewinsky Condoms

The National Center for Health Statistics report, released on September 15, states that more than half of American teenagers ages 15 to 19 have engaged in oral sex and 70 percent of teenagers from 18 and 19 year olds. The study did not assess the reasons for teen promiscuity, but it is likely the bombardment of sexual messages from the media and encouragement of promiscuity from sexual education have contributed significantly.

A recent Parent Television Council (PTC) study of MTV reported:

  • In 171 hours of MTV programming, PTC analysts found 1,548 sexual scenes containing 3,056 depictions of sex or various forms of nudity and 2,881 verbal sexual references. That means that children watching MTV are viewing an average of 9 sexual scenes per hour with approximately 18 sexual depictions and 17 instances of sexual dialogue or innuendo. To put this in perspective, consider that in its last study of sex on primetime network television, the PTC found an average of only 5.8 instances of sexual content during the 10 o'clock hour' when only adults are watching

Some analysts have also concluded that Bill Clinton's insistence that the oral sex performed by Monica Lewinsky did not qualify as "sex" has contributed to the attitude of many teens.

The Chinese company Guangzhou Rubber Group has released two condoms with the brand names Clinton and Lewinsky. Spokesperson Liu Wenhua stated "The Clinton condom will be the top of our line. The Lewinsky condom is not quite as good."

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is urging 18 states to reject abstinence-only sex-education programs. Abstinence-only programs teach teens how to how to set boundaries, practice self-control and avoid "all genital contact and sexual stimulation." The ACLU is pushing the comprehensive sex education, which teaches all kinds of sexual behavior, including sexual intercourse, oral sex, mutual masturbation and more.
