awkward fumblings, reverse cowgirl overload & the general consensus on tobacco in the ’60s

Also via Details, two interesting “quick and dirty” articles on sex & the internet:

http://www.details.com/sex-relationships/porn-and-perversions/200907/how-internet-porn-is-changing-teen-sex  (check the article’s subtitle for shock value).

Two remarkable quotes from the latter:
“The awkward truth, according to one study, is that 90 percent of 8 to 16 year olds have viewed pornography online. Considering the standard climax to even the most vanilla hardcore scene today, that means there is an entire generation of young people who think sex ends with a money shot to the face. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly where the age divide falls, but it’s safe to say that the first purebred guinea pig to have grown up never knowing a world without fisting on demand is probably around 22 years old.”

“Former State Department staffer Mary Eberstadt, writing in Policy Review, compares the prevailing attitudes about porn to the general consensus on tobacco in the 1960s. “[Porn] is widely seen as cool, especially among younger people, and this coveted social status further reduces the already low incentive for making a public issue of it.””
