Author William Golding tried to rape teenager, have you?
The Nobel laureate Sir William Golding, whose novel Lord of the Flies turned notions of childhood innocence on their head, admitted in private papers that he had tried to rape a 15-year-old girl during his teenage years, it emerged today.
Golding's papers also described how he had experimented, while a teacher at a public school, with setting boys against one another in the manner of Lord of the Flies, which tells the story of young air crash survivors on a desert island during a nuclear war.
I wonder how many other men would admit to such a confession about their teenage years. I myself remember doing some very heavy petting and getting close to raping a few young women in my early dating years. It is very hard to stop and here that word "no" when so young and experienced and yearning for the experience of having sex.
I am glad I listened to that "No" and I have learned over the many years in relationships that the actual sex thing has to be the wish of both parties to be thoroughly enjoyed and its best if both parties love each other or at least care.
