so sorry. tell em to stop looking shit up on the internet and you give em the sex talk. damn.
i assume you live in a red state where sex education is inadequate at best.
Things like this make me happy I live in Canada. We got basic sex ed in third grade (basically explaining the mechanics and anatomy, and how you can get pregnant), another class in sixth grade (puberty and safe sex), and again in ninth grade biology, which went really in depth about STDs, getting pregnant, how to put on a condom - even abortion. Being educated is the first step.
In this day and age I would just get her some condoms. They are both boneheads for using a glove like that though.
You would encourage sexual behavior of two teenage kids who think its a smart idea to use a latex glove as a source of protective against unwanted pregnancy and STD's? By buying them condoms??? I would have to completely disagree. OP should look into having a discussion with their kid.
Well, she's 16. I'd rather they waited longer but that's the legal age over here and many people lose it earlier...I also don't think it's possibile to get them to change their minds at this point. So yes, educate but maybe also condoms. I'm more surprised that they couldn't find any though. At that age, free condoms are offered at every teen sex thing, at the clinic (even if you're not asking for them) and friends always have spares. They're pretty damn hard to avoid.
a little dense.. but at least they tried to use protection. maybe they're onto something though.. never thought of using a latex glove as a 5 in 1 condom.
