This happened to my parents. Mom worked nights in the city singing in clubs. We lived on LI. Dad started having an affair with the single mom of one of my childhood friends. Dad kicked my mom out claiming she was sleeping with the guy she was staying overnight with, her accompanist, David, who was gayer than gay, and who eventually died from AIDS. The only thing was, my friend's mom didn't think my dad was actually such a catch, so she kind of ran in the other direction and left my dad hanging. My dad begged my mom to come back home to LI but she said nope. [ Reply | More ]

Sure, happy to answer questions but the specific location is very important. Even in the locations I identified as better there are bad blocks. For example, I would avoid 119th street between fifth and lenox. It just has a lot of people kind of hanging out, lots of un-rehabbed brownstones. But the other side of lenox is fine. The other thing to think through is the school thing - it's not that you must do private but you need to roll the dice a bit for G&T, teachers college, Central Park East schools, etc. Most people I know do private, but all that said my friends who were motivated all found a good public option [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] RM here: There's an interesting article in the NYT today about a Colorado program to reduce teenage pregnancy by funding implanted, long-acting birth control devices in young women who ask for it. In 4 years, CO's teenage pregnancy rate dropped 40%. This program should be a no brainer, as should wider access to subsidized, safe, and anonymous abortion services. Let's face it: these programs are one of those rare situations where the left and right should be in violent agreement. By reducing pregnancies, you take a yoke off poor women, plus the programs are as close as it gets to state-sanctioned eugenics. Every high IQ person regardless of political affiliation should support these programs. 77 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

That's my reply. Practices engaged in by the actresses in hard cord porn are not realistic, and are often not enjoyable for many women. Gagging on a cock isn't really desirable. [ Reply | More ]

I did tell her that it's an unrealistic depiction of both men and women. Do you think it is as common as she's making it out to be? Would you keep it confidential-not tell her father? [ Reply | More ]

I have a serious reply. She's 14, just at the age where she is curious about these things. I'd sit her down and tell her you're not mad and she shouldn't be embarrassed but that porn is not what actual sex is like and it should be between a man and a woman that love each other blah blah blah. Tell her it is a-okay to explore her body but to wait to do anything with someone else until she feels she's ready and in love. Bam. Conversation over. [ Reply | More ]

And being hit in the face with 2 cocks at once is not cool. XOX. [ Reply | More ]

OP: thank you. I guess she'll probably keep watching it. I know I can't prohibit it, but still seems unsettling. I think I will tell my husband, even though she asked me not to. [ Reply | More ]

Thankfully, we have talked about this, and she isn't sexually active yet. Teens are stressful [ Reply | More ]

You should encourage her to get into the industry. It's what all the feminists are doing these days. Otherwise you are just enabling the patriarchy. [ Reply | More ]

TALK TO HER. Ask her why she's watching this, why she feels the need to, whether her friends are doing it. Then talk to her about what normal, healthy human sexual behavior is in the context of a healthy relationship and that the sex portrayed in pornography is not realistic. Tell her to remember this. I would tell my dd that occasionally looking at and being curious about pornography is normal, but that excessive use can interfere with her sexual relationships and expectations later on. She's old enough to understand the nuance, and it would be a bad idea to not use this as a parenting opportunity. [ Reply | More ]
