“So, yeah, we're enlightened. We're empowered. We're dishing out accurate information on an age-appropriate basis. So the next logical step, says "Oprah" sexpert Dr. Laura Berman, is to buy our teenage girls their first vibrators.”
Uh ... er ... our you crazy?...No really, have you lost the functionality of your senses?
Oprah did explain that she was not going to say it and she would never do it, even if she had kids of her own. Excuse me? You allowed your regular sexual health expert to make the statement on your show. Hello!
I am all for teaching your children all about sex in the attempt to get them fully informed, in order to prevent compromising situations and avoid HIV/AIDS. The entire episode was all about sex and teens, and providing disturbing information about what these teens are doing. If you have a teenager, you need to have a discussion NOW! They our doing some crazy stuff.
The teen girls give teen boys blow jobs like its candy and the boys don’t return the favor, in fact this other boy stood up on Oprah and claimed how easy it is for boys to get blowjobs. THUD!………
Sorry I just fainted!....
Yes, the audience was equally shocked and I think some of them wished they had tickets to another taping. I know I would have. Then there was this mother who was so confused about answering questions which her daughter, Jordan -13yrs, was asking. Jordan is cute and very bright. The mother was terrified of answering her questions about sex, although she bought her a book, but when Jordan started asking tough questions based on chapters in the book. She didn’t want to address those questions and asked Jordan not ask her. This mother had a tough time, she could not even say masturbation.
Experts in general advise that sex ed happen over a series of conversations on the subject, rather than one uncomfortable "talk" somewhere during puberty.
“I think it differs from child to child, but the truth of the matter is most teenage girls are curious about sex -- not just the mechanics of it, they want more than knowledge they truly want to know (what the big deal is).” Said one other viewer.
The statement was a can of jumbo-sized worms, dying to break out. However way you look at it, this is not a good idea. If kids want vibrators, they should graduate from college, get a job, get their own home and buy their own vibrators. And pray to God you don't see when you visit. Parents should NEVER buy their children vibrators. C’mon.
