Hers is an outdated and very damaging attitude. Yup, the good old days when your life could be ruined forever just by doing something natural that everyone has a natural urge to do. Yup, those were the good old days. Too bad women these days have the option and ability to take control of their own lives.

Their is a time and a place for everything.....we seem to have forgotten that.....or ignored it!

What you just said literally means nothing. Time and a place for what? Whom determines when and where these times and places are correct?

Yes and make tremendous mistakes that they wished they hadn't.

The point is Blume is longing for a time when those mistakes would lead to lifelong consequences, as opposed to now.

I read her book "Wifey" when I was in junior high. Very naughty book.

This would have seriously changed the storylines of "Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing" and "Super Fudge".

Thanks, Judy, for your wonderfully positive impact on my childhood, especially the early to mid 80s.

Me too! Same time frame too! I loved all her books.

Children and young adults miss out on a whole range of things due to our society. Children are not valued. No one cares about education. Everyone says "get a good education", yet no one wants to pay teachers or raise taxes to pay for it.

Children are valued, but i dont think childhood is. Kids grow up way too fast and face tremendous pressures, especially to do with sex.

Agree with both you and barflea.

OK, now I am depressed.

no Judy, men have always wanted oral... always. It's just that the societal rules have been relaxed. if anything its the women that are changing. They are taking charge and understand they don't have to belong to a man, to enjoy the primal fruits of sex

fact: not all men like fellatio
additional fact: many boys are disturbed when they first hear about it.

Reading scientific journals on the effects of pornography on the brain are devastating.
05:22 PM on 07/09/2013
Reading the journals is devastating? or the porn?

Women...want a relationship without sexual "expectations" on them in return. Is that it? Can't have it both ways. Well..maybe you can find some sucker to marry you eventually.

she's talking about teens
why do you want teens to get married?

I'm at a point where I don't even want to know what people like Box500 have to say.
07:58 PM on 07/09/2013
I feel sorry for you Box000. You really need to try to have sex with a woman without having to pay for it.

I grew up in an era before the internet and porn were so easily accessed and I totally agree with Judy. There was just something magical about all the small steps you took toward intimacy with only the word of your older sibling or the tales of your more experience friends to guide you.

The slow path around the "bases" and long walks and talks you had with a girl or boy you really liked during the summer were magical....without the taint of expectations...and still held in check by your own fear/morals.

Growing up today has to be tough. I don't envy them, and actually feel sad that they miss out on delaying gratification and "longing" for deeper connections.

I'm in my 30's and can't even fathom what you describe. Today when a man approaches a woman and does not make bedroom eyes and speak suggestively, she decides he lacks confidence (in his ability to get her to disrobe, not in himself) and rejects him immediately. Taking it slow and enjoying the little things is not an option. Longing for deeper connections? Yes, like you wouldn't believe.
