“This is anal 101, for teens, beginners, and all inquisitive folks.” That appalling sentence closes out the introduction to Teen Vogue’s “Anal Sex: What You Need to Know,” an article that has as its tagline, “How to do it the RIGHT way.” [Emphasis original] That sentence drags teenagers into the world of fetish sex and is a jolting reminder that the current purveyors of pop culture have the degradation and sexual objectification of our children as part of their endgame.
For years now, Teen Vogue has been a cesspool of pedophilia-leaning perversion. Recent articles include — and I can’t believe I’m typing this — “No, You Can’t Get too Attached to Your Vibrator: Masturbation Myths Debunked,” “Colton Hayes: I Lost My Virginity at 13 to a Girl and a Guy,” and “This Teen Created a Map of EVERY Abortion Clinic in the U.S.” The articles I skipped over include instructions on how to masturbate if you have a penis or if you have a vagina. Under fashion, amongst other sexually charged fashion advice articles, Teen Vogue encourages teen girls to wear fidget spinners on their nipples.
If any of those articles were taught in school, the teacher would be arrested, and rightfully so. However, none of the articles plumb the depths of perversion as much as “Anal Sex: What You Need to Know” (although I admit that I didn’t search for very long).
One of the things that Teen Vogue believes tween and teen girls should know is this:
Just because you have a vagina does not mean anal is off-limits. Many vagina owners love anal play. You don’t need to have a prostate to enjoy anal sex. For those without a prostate, having your anus stimulated can still be great — remember all those nerve endings are still in the fold here.
Not content to only prey on girls, Teen Vogue tells boys, “For those of you with prostates, being on the receiving end of anal sex can be a great experience.” The article then goes on to explain why boys will enjoy anal sex.
The rest of the pedophilic article is a how-to guide, providing step-by-step instructions to children about how to give and/or receive anal sex. Keep in mind that Teen Vogue’s target audience is children. The writer, Gigi Engle, ends her predatory piece by writing that “anal sex and anal stimulation can be awesome, and if you want to give it a go, you do that. More power to you.”
interesting disturbing note now appears on the bottom of the article. Apparently, having faced at least some backlash, Teen Vogue has added, “This article has been updated to include the importance of using protection during anal sex.” So Gigi Engle originally wrote an article encouraging children to engage in a sexual activity that comes with a high risk of STDs without the use of any protection. Think about that for a moment.
For decades now, sex therapists and proponents of safe sex teaching in schools have sworn that their goal isn’t to encourage children to have sex. Rather, from their point of view, since teens are going to have sex anyway, adults should make sure that teenagers are as educated about sex as possible. Furthermore, much of the received wisdom in adolescent psychology has been that teenagers are not mentally or emotionally capable of engaging in sexual activity in healthy ways.
To be fair, no doubt many sex therapists and proponents of safe sex teaching in schools are probably appalled at Teen Vogue’s “Anal Sex: What You Need to Know.” However, our culture’s slide into more and more contemptuous degradation began somewhere. The fact that a popular magazine aimed at children is publishing articles encouraging their readers to engage in anal sex isn’t a cultural anomaly that happened overnight. For years now, pop culture has been explicitly working against parents who are trying to teach their children Judeo-Christian morals and values.
Parents, fight back against pop culture and the reigning cultural spirit of hedonism pushed by the sexual revolution. Your children are being inundated with messages like that of Teen Vogue’s encouragement to have anal sex. They need you to be their parent and not their friend. Be aware of what your children are listening to, watching, and reading. Do not be afraid to set rules and standards, and do not be afraid to discipline your children when they disobey your rules. If you’re not careful, you will unwittingly abdicate your parenting responsibility and hand the duties to Teen Vogue.
