  •  The party was videotaped (7+ / 0-)

    and a jury that saw that tape refused to convict on charges of rape.

    The 15 year old at the party initiated oral sex with Wilson and others.

    For all that many of us might disapprove of this party, it is clear that there is one thing it was NOT, and that's "a crime."

    What every one of the participants at the party needed was to be left alone by all these "well-meaning" adults who only wanted to make an example of sexually active young people and terrorize others into an illusion of chastity "think of the children."

      generation didn't videotape and camphone and digicam and webcam our sexual escapades was that we didn't have the technology available to us at the time.

      I sort of regret that at this point; the reaction of Gen X / Y to terabytes of their parents "in action" would provide us with quite a bit of harmless amusement.

      And collapse any boomer-generation pretensions with respect to teenage sexual morality, which it's pretty apparent would be a good thing.

        Whenever I hear a disco song I cringe at the memories of the incredibly stupid things I did when I was a teenager. I'm just so glad that nobody had digital cameras and cell phones and handheld video cameras to record the memories.

      •  Taping yer gangbangs is not just tech-driven. (0+ / 0-)

        Or a lot more people would do it.

        Modern technology has likely enabled new fun for the exhibitionistic types, but most people just aren't gangbangers.

        I hardly glance at mirror if it's in proximity; I really don't want to watch a DVD of myself screwing. I'd keep waiting for my screen self to break the fourth wall - "Hey, you were actually gettin' some here! How is it there, in the Barcalounger, loser?"

    •  Many non-crimes cry out for resolution. (0+ / 0-)

      The behavior displayed by the girls, as well as the boys, indicates very troubled people. No crime, though.
