As parents, we've got to do all we can to help our teens wait for sex. In the spirit of "it takes a village," Bangkok police are helping parents out.
A Reuters article headlined "Thai teens keen for Valentine's Day sex" explores how Bangkok is dealing with their horny youth.
In a poll of 1,578 teenagers by Assumption University, 1/3 of the girls said they'd have sex on Valentine's Day if their boyfriends asked. Another survey of 1,222 teens (University of Thai Chamber of Commerce) found that 11% planned to lose their virginity on V-Day. Only 51% said they would not have sex.
I agree with Bangkok Deputy Police Chief Kamol Kaewsuwan who said, "Love is nice and beautiful, but it does not necessarily involve sexual engagement. Teenagers would do better focusing on school."
I don't agree with his approach to dealing with the problem, however. The kids are under a V-Day 10:00 pm curfew and decency watch. If they break curfew and are seen hugging and kissing, they'll be taken to the police station to wait for their parents to pick them up.
I may be old school, but even I think this is a bit harsh.
Thank God for this week's blizzard and freezing temperatures that are keeping horny Chicago teens at home.
