Newsweek reports that teenage prostitution is on the rise. But not just teenage prostitution, middle-class teenage prostitution:
“Potentially good sex is a small price to pay for the freedom to spend money on what I want.” The easiest way, she discovered, was to offer her body in trade. Stacey, who lives with her parents in an upscale neighborhood, gets good grades in high school and plans to try out for the tennis team, began stripping for men in hotel rooms in exchange for money to buy clothes—then went on to more intimate activities.

This is what the sexual revolution is now reaping after systematically cheapening sex in the minds of young people, it seems a small price to pay to gain quick access to what you want, clothes, cars, whatever.

And how any father who reads this article could let a teenage daughter go to the Mall of America by herself is hard to imagine.
