ABSTRACT
The article discusses the author's stand on the sexual activities of teenagers in Lakewood, California. Based from a case filed in Lakewood, eight boys were held up on felony counts that included sex with a ten-year-old girl. The lead boy in the case claimed that he had sex with 66 different girls. His parents though are unconcerned of his activities. In fact, they argued that they see no cause for remorse. But, according to a report from the Planned Parenthood there were 3,000 teenagers who visited the clinic in 1992. Some of those tested positive for a sexually transmitted disease. And most of them, headed for the nearest abortion clinic. In the book The Other Victorious, it has been pointed out that every society has a sexual underground and sex is a biological underground, though, like other appetites, it can be usually be controlled. Thus, the mothers and fathers of Lakewood are passive about the sexual habits of their children.
