Teen girls trading sex for favours
Barry Artiste Op/Ed
I wish this story was an April Fools Joke, sadly it isn't. Canada is not the only country where this is practised, I saw a documentary where Japanese high schoolers were doing much the same to score some Bling!
As it is said in this story, impressionable girls who are influenced by music and gang culture. That is a sedate way of putting it, has anyone ever seen a Rap Gangsta video which practises normalcy? Not likely, yet it is prominent in these videos, with the words interspersed in most of the lyrics such as Bitches and Hos, Drugs, Bling, Escalades bought with love and a gun. Is it any wonder these children are influenced? Certainly disturbing at best. So in ending, Society and this Gangsta Rap Culture are a big part of the blame!
EDMONTON -- Somewhere in the city, children as young as 11 and 12 are gathering in basements and playing intricate, graphic sex games.
I first heard about these parties a few years ago from my 12-year-old daughter, who said kids at her school played games where each girl had to perform oral sex on several boys.
Naively, I dismissed the story as another urban myth, like Pop Rocks causing heart attacks and maggots in milk-shake machines.
Turns out, these parties are very real and frighteningly commonplace.
Edmonton is featured in a new book and documentary DVD called Oral Sex is the New Goodnight Kiss by Sharlene Azam, where she explores "the growing phenomenon of middle-class girls trading sex for money, drugs and luxury goods."
