Thanks to the internet, our teenagers are exposed to sex as never before – with terrifying results
Here’s an article from todays Daily Mail. Written by a friend of mine. It raises some interesting points.. read the full article below…
Legend has it that the famous Victorian writer John Ruskin failed ever to consummate his marriage because he found one aspect of his wife’s body utterly repugnant.
It’s claimed that when she undressed on their wedding night, he was shocked and disgusted by the sight of her body hair.
Ruskin’s wife Effie Gray was a normal woman – a great beauty. But Ruskin had never seen a naked woman before; he’d only ever gazed at Greek sculptures. He expected his wife to be as hairless and smooth as the marble images he admired.
This story has often been used as an example of Victorian prudishness and ignorance about sex. How we, in our liberal times, have mocked those uptight Victorians, so strait-laced that they would faint in shock at the sight of a well-moulded piano leg.
