You’re over 21 years old and still a virgin? That’s perfectly normal


By web gangsta | Published:

A common theme in today’s pop culture is how concerned kids are with when is the “right time” to lose their virginity.

Entire movies have been made on the subject – Tom Cruise’s Losin’ It is probably not on the higher end of his personal accomplishments, we’re fairly certain.  But what once was a Very Special Episode of Blossom or Family Ties, or one of those mandatory Afterschool Specials that we all rushed home to watch together – it’s now become almost a punchline in any major sitcom or movie being made today.

Are you still wearing your high school gym clothes in your office gym?

Hanging out in your fraternity or sorority sweatshirt while you sit around the Chuck E Cheese with the other parents at birthday parties?

Today’s teenagers are not having sex as early as their parents did


By web gangsta | Published:

How old were you when you first had sex?

And if you have kids that age, have you taken the time to have THAT conversation with them, to ensure that your kids don’t make the same mistake (or have the same fun) that you had when you were their age?

Chances are, you haven’t.  Web Watch doesn’t know many parents who have had that conversation at all.

What About Sex?: Teens Speak Out About Parents, Peers & Personal Responsibility

It’s a growing trend these days – parents, in their bid to be “cool and hip”, are allowing their teens to have more and more benefits that the parents may have been denied themselves while growing up.

Whether it be their own cellphone when they’re 10 years old, regular access to the kegerator in the basement when they’re 15, or being given their own new car just because they lived to be 16-years-old – more parents are deciding that the old rule of “as long as it’s at home, it’s okay” is a perfectly adequate way to raise their children.
