Speak to sexually active teenage girls today, as I have been lately while researching a book, and it is evident that many feel the only means they have to beguile men is through sex. And even then, they feel a need to be overt with their flirt.
All those too-tight, too-short and too-low dresses aren’t, as I once thought, what girls wear to be appear fashionable to their female peers. They wear them, I’m informed, to look sexy to men.
”˜”˜I don’t really care what my friends wear out,’’ one young lady told me, ”˜”˜unless it makes them look hotter than I do.’’
”˜”˜You have to be hot to attract a guy,’’ another 16-year-old girl asserted. ”˜”˜If you don’t look sexy, then they won’t think you are interested in them.’’
And once you attract said guy? ”˜”˜You need to have sex with them. If you don’t, they’ll just go with someone who will.’’
