Fourteen and fantasising

...we still live in a very prudish society that villifies sexual acts and denies the very nature of teens. The situation would be far better for everyone if society took a long hard, honest look at the subject.

SHOOT: It's part of a global denialism. Since the world doesn't acknowledge these feelings they can't exist in me.

Apparently, most adults are still under the impression that sex and sexuality are strictly confined to people over the age of 21.

What we were engaging in was the game of flirting – of foreplay really – and it came as naturally as breathing. And why shouldn't it have? Fucking is something the human species has been doing for a very, very long time and technically, we're supposed to be shagging ourselves silly from the moment we hit puberty. Our bodies are wired for it.

The fact that we generally don't is actually contrary to our nature.

So it kinda makes me wonder why people get worked up about apparently seductive images of Miley Cyrus. Is it because she shouldn't be sensual for her age? Or that she shouldn't be having sex at her age?

I'm not sure I understand why people would applaud her hackneyed sense of moral righteousness about her virginity and purity ring and squeal in dismay at a picture that alludes to her as being a sexual being.
