Certain rules about sexuality dictate your daughter’s life. She’s expected to LOOK sexy and sexual and be desirable by men and boys alike. But she’s also not to supposed to BE sexual. She’s supposed have an air of sexual knowledgability and an enticement to young men around her, but not actually seek out sex or enjoy it too much. Your daughter exists in a world where corporate overlords compelled pop stars like Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears to trumpet their virginity and talk about waiting until marriage while writhing onstage in hot pants and cone bras, singing “Oh pretty baby, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do.” Your daughter exists in a world where public school systems teach abstinence-only in sexual health classes while TV shows like “16 & Pregnant” and “Teen Mom” are some of the most popular on television. For young women like your daughter, sexual experience is standard they’re supposed to live up to, but it’s also a taboo. That is the truth of your daughter’s life.
