Remember when former Clinton surgeon general Jocelyn Elders suggested that teenagers should be taught how to masturbate as part of sex education? Well, as amazing as it might seem, actress and “AIDS activist” Sharon Stone apparently tells teenagers that they should engage in oral sex rather than intercourse to protect themselves from HIV. As reported by ContactMusic.com (hat tip to Drudge):
“Actress SHARON STONE is adamant teenagers should be prepared to engage in oral sex, if it saves from them the dangers of unprotected penetrative sex. The BASIC INSTINCT [star] spends much of her time away from Hollywood working as an activist raising AIDS awareness, and she always carries condoms with her to hand out in a bid to increase safe sex levels.”
Now, this is certainly fascinating – an “AIDS activist” apparently unaware that HIV can be transferred orally. Regardless, Stone told a nice little story about what she does when she encounters a teenager debating becoming sexually active:
"I was in the store the other day and I watched a young girl trying on clothes, showing her abdomen. Her mother was trying to talk to her about not being inappropriately luring. I said, 'Gee that would look much nicer with a camisole under.' Her mother walked away, and I said to the girl, 'I'd like to give you a two-minute conversation about sex.'”
Isn’t that every parent’s dream – Sharon Stone counseling their daughter about sex?!? She mercilessly continued: "Young people talk to me about what to do if they're being pressed for sex? I tell them (what I believe): oral sex is a hundred times safer than vaginal or anal sex.”
Yikes. A hundred times safer? I wonder where she got that from? After all, the Centers for Disease Control reported “it is possible for either partner to become infected with HIV through performing or receiving oral sex.” Moreover, though studies reported by the CDC suggest the likelihood is less than with intercourse, they claim that “no one knows exactly what the degree of risk is.”
As such, where Stone got a hundred times safer is anybody’s guess. Regardless, here’s Stone’s suggestion to a teenage girl being pressured for sex: "If you're in a situation where you cannot get out of sex, offer a b--- job. I'm not embarrassed to tell them."
How would you like Stone advising your kids?
