Not Jaded Enough?

Let’s go all the way tonight
No regrets, just love…
We’ll be young forever
– “Teenage Dream”

Where is my jaded and cynical generation when I need them? We are the generation that went through Monica-gate in the White House, have been inundated with casual sex flurries in the media, “reality” TV, and real reality. When this generation actually was in the teenage years, Cobain’s shadow was still hanging over the party. Though she has other reasons, I agree with this The Atlantic writer, that Perry’s teenage dream “isn’t mine.”

Does anyone still think the unicorn of “no-strings-attached” sex exists? This strange, erotic amnesia needs to die sooner than later.
