Sex Ed for Manhattan Prep Students: Masturbation & Porn Literacy for Teens

We've previously written about raunchy teen behavior at some of Manhattan's "top" schools. For example, we shared when Emily Jane Fox related in her New York Times Bestseller, Born Trump: Inside America's First Family, that Ivanka flashed a hot dog vendor from the third floor window of her Chapin 8th grade classroom. 

And we related that Tamar Lewin posted in "Teen-Agers Alter Sexual Practices, Thinking Risks Will Be Avoided" (April 5, 1997) for the New York Times that Hunter, a top high school on Manhattan's wealthy Upper East Side, provides "mint-flavored condoms with no spermicide, labeled ''ONLY for oral sex'' for the Hunter High nymphets.

Now Dana Kennedy posted for the New York Post that "Dalton parents [are] enraged over ‘masturbation’ videos for first graders" (May 29, 2021) Kennedy wrote:

Last fall, parents at the posh $55,000-per-year Dalton School got wind of their first-graders being taught sex-education lessons that included masturbation.

The Post viewed video of a cartoon Fonte used in one of her sex-ed classes for 6-year-olds showing little kids talking about “touching themselves” for pleasure.

Then the little girl character chimes in: “Sometimes, when I’m in my bath or when Mom puts me to bed, I like to touch my vulva too.”

And Kennedy reported for the New York Post that "Columbia Prep students and parents reel after class on ‘porn literacy’". Kennedy wrote:

When juniors at [Columbia Grammar & Prep School] the $47,000-a-year Manhattan school showed up for a health and sexuality workshop, most thought it was “just going to be about condoms or birth control,” a student told The Post.

Instead, it was something called “Pornography Literacy: An intersectional focus on mainstream porn,” taught by Justine Ang Fonte, who’s the director of Health & Wellness at another elite prep school, Dalton.

Fonte’s presentation, some of which was seen by The Post, included a list of the most searched pornographic terms of 2019, including “creampie,” “anal,” “gangbang,” “stepmom” and more.

One slide cited various porn genres such as “incest-themed,” consensual or “vanilla,” “barely legal,” and “kink and BDSM” (which included “waterboard electro” torture porn as an example). 

Barely legal? #pun


Kate Haralson vs Matthew Perry: The Entrapment of Older Men for Jokes

Matthew Perry & Kate Haralson via Page Six

Eileen Reslen reported for Page Six "Kate Haralson kicked off Raya after calling out Matthew Perry" (May 7, 2021) 

Kate Haralson was kicked off Raya, an exclusive dating app, because she shared on TikTok that when she was 19, she matched with the 51-year-old actor Matthew Perry. 

Per Reslen, Haralson: "[...] released the video to expose how older men in Hollywood are “taking advantage” of younger women on dating apps."

But Reslen revealed that she knowingly "[...] had the app’s age range set to meet older men 'for the joke of it.'"


Reslen posted on TikTok:
When you match w Matthew Perry as a joke on a dating app an he facetimes you and plays 20 questions with you
Wait, so Reslen entrapped older men on the app by pre-setting the age range to show how older men are “taking advantage” of younger women - as a joke? 

And how did 51-year-old Perry take advantage of Reslen? He played 20 Questions with the then 19-year-old nymphet. 


But Raya and a number of TikTok users weren't buying Reslen's story. For example, Raya kicked Reslen off the app, and she shared with Page Six:
“A lot of people were saying I’m a bully and mean for posting this, and it made me feel kind of bad, but at the same time, I feel like a lot of guys in Hollywood are talking to all these young girls and it’s something that I think a lot of people should be aware of”
Are we assume that Reslen feels that an older man possesses magical powers, solely due to his age, which renders a younger woman (completely) mentally and physically helpless. 

Are we to assume that Reslen feels that 19-year-old porn stars should only do porn with other 19-year-olds, which is unlikely as your average straight male porn star is approximately in his mid-thirties with Manuel Jeannin, arguably the #1 straight male porn star, sitting at a whopping 45-years-old. 

And are we assume that Relsen feels that 18-year-old OnlyFans users should only allow other 18-year-olds to view their salacious content? 

Or is Reslen like (most) Orthodox Jews and Muslims who advise nymphets to avoid porn and OnlyFans?

Hulu's PLAN B (2021): A "Raunchy Teen [Sex] Comedy"

Here's Hulu's plot summary for Plan B (2021):

After a regrettable first sexual encounter, a straight-laced high school student [Sunny] (Kuhoo Verma) and her slacker best friend [Lupe] (Victoria Moroles) have 24 hours to hunt down a Plan B pill in America's heartland.

Seconds into Plan B, which BuzzFeed referred to as "Hulu's New Raunchy Teen Comedy", Lupe sexted a picture of her panties covered derrière, and Sunny masturbated to a picture of a "man" in her science book. 

While dressing for gym class in the high school locker room, Megan shared, "Oh, did I tell you? We finally tried reverse cowgirl." Subsequently, during gym, Megan straddled, rubbed it against her bottom-grass, and licked a hockey stick. 

The lesbian subplot appeared to be disingenuous and masquerading as a lipstick lesbian subplot, because Lupe shared that she had sex with a boy at church camp, that she had previously performed oral sex on a boy, and she apparently watched heteronormative porn.

Sunny: "Oh, what's a skull fuck?"
Lupe: "It's when a guy puts his junk in your mouth and humps your skull."
Sunny: "That's a real thing?"
Lupe: "I'll send you some links."
In addition to the lipstick lesbian subplot, Sunny and Lupe came upon a couple of nymphoplepts, one of whom demanded that Sunny, "Pee on my face - right now!"

In an effort to get a fake I.D. from a drug dealer, Sunny and lipstick lesbian Lupe argued over whom would "suck his dick" for the counterfeit card. 

Lupe: "What? You can't suck his dick. I'm gonna suck his dick."
Sunny: "Let me sucnk his dick!"
Lupe: "No, let me suck his dick!"
Lupe shared that Sunny masturbates on the regular, "[...] you spent the whole weekend doing flash cards and diddling yourself as usual." And Kuhoo Verma shared with Buzzfeed that her character Sunny reminded her of herself in middle school:
"I looked to 'middle school Kuhoo' and looked to, like, how she navigated the world and felt such awkwardness and weird sexual shame [...]"

Lastly, Plan B is a Hulu Original, an American High film ("Embrace the R-rated reality of high school"), thus far, the film has 100% Tomatometer from 26 film critics on Rotten Tomatoes, despite the fact that the film has a 2021 date, it's considered one of the Best Comedy Movies of 2020, and Emma Specter of Vogue opined: "Plan B Is the Sex Positive Buddy Comedy I Needed as a Teenage Girl" (May 28, 2021)

TANNER HALL (2009): A Schoolgirl Seduces English Teacher


Tanner Hall (2009) won the jury prize for best film at the 2010 Gen Art Movie Festival here in NYC. And from IMDb is: 
“[...] a vivid peek into the private world of an all-girls boarding school. In a cozy, but run down New England, the knot of adolescent complexity is unraveled through the coming of age stories of four teen-age girls”. 
The film was co-written by Tatiana von Furstenberg, the daughter of Diane, and Francesca Gregorini. The idea for the film developed after Tatiana and Francesca met at Brown University, and it is based on their experiences at boarding school. 


In the film, Victoria, Mr. Middlewood’s boarding school student, unsurprisingly initiated the student-teacher affair. For example, Victoria feigned a fall in the shower; so, that Mr. Middlewood could rescue her. Consequently, the literature teacher carried his student's half nude dripping wet body to the nurse’s office. 


Initially, Mr. Middlewood was reserved and had a standoffish attitude in reaction to Victoria's advances, even after she suggested that the class read Lolita while she invitingly performed fellatio on a pencil. 

However, things took a turn for the worse after Mr. Middlewood didn't have patience to allow Victoria to advance the relationship at her own pace. Mr. Middlewood made an age-gap affair faux pas and took the enormous step of giving Victoria a car for her birthday; so, that they could:
“[...] go away together somewhere. Anywhere […] Finally, you're of legal age. I know you want it as much as I do. We don't have to fight this anymore.” 
Victoria replied, “Mr. Middlewood you're scaring me. Just forget about me, okay?” 
Mr. Middlewood was correct in assuming that Victoria wanted it as much as he did, but that should have been his firm but unspoken mindset.

The boarding student-teacher affair wasn't the only age-discrepant relationship the two Ivy League coeds wrote in their film. In addition, boarding school student Fernanda (Rooney Mara) had an affair with Gio (Tom Everett Scott) - the middle-aged husband of her mother’s best friend from college. 


And unsurprisingly, Tanner Hall had a schoolgirl lipstick lesbian subplot. 

Lastly and interestingly, Tanner Hall was not written through a feminist lens, because both relationships were written with sympathy and empathy.

Leni Klum & Alabama Barker: Sexualized Teens or Teen Sexuality?

16-year-old @leniklum via IG

Leni Klum, Heidi's 16-year-old daughter, and Alabama Barker, Travis' 15-year-old daughter, were in the news recently. 

Hannah Southwick of PageSix posted the article "Heidi Klum’s daughter Leni, 16, covers Glamour Germany 20 years after mom" (April 9, 2021). 

And Heather Waugh for the Daily Mail posted "Travis Barker's daughter Alabama, 15, says Shanna Moakler is an absent mom..." (17 May 2021)

16-year-old Leni Klum

What struck us the most after clicking on the links in the articles, was the similarities between the two nymphets. For example, for the Glamour photoshoot, Leni posed with her denim jacket lowered to expose her young shoulders sans bra straps. Thereby, giving the viewer the impression that she was braless. Bandeau? 

In addition, Leni posted a picture on Instagram with her denim jacket lowered to expose her young shoulders sans bra straps. The post was captioned to promote the magazine's release: "Coming soon… #twomoredays." #[teen]sexsells

And Alabama made a TikTok with her pajama top lowered to expose her young shoulders; however, her designer bra strap, which she fingered, was visible. 

15-year-old @alabamabarker 

Arguably, Alabama's exposed shoulders post may be more conservative than Leni's, but Alabama was not conservative in some of her other TikTok posts. For instance, in another TiKTok, she rubbed her fountains over her latex and aimed her young derrière at her iPhone's camera.

Apparently, Heidi approved of Hannah's photoshoot. She even gave the camera a sly wink. And we're going to assume that Travis is aware of Alabama's sultry TikToks. 

But what may be most interesting thing about Leni's photoshoot and Instagram post and Alabama's TikToks is that the nymphet are not being sexualized, but they are displaying their teen sexuality. Are Leni and Alabama using the allure of nymphets to their own advantage? 

15-year-old Alabama Barker via Daily Mail

And even if you and/or Travis don't approve of Alabama's TiKToks, Taylor Lorenz opined on The New York Times' "Popcast" podcast (SEP 16, 2020) that "there's a lot of over reaction" over the sexualization of minors on TikTok. Lorenz opined:

And I think that, you know, young women should feel confident in expressing themselves. You know, and if they wanna dance to a certain song and that makes them feel good and they wanna put that on the Internet [...] I think that a lot of the concern over sexualization of minors and stuff is very focused around young women and can sometimes be used as an excuse to kind of shame them for things that you know maybe they like don't deserve it for - there's a lot of overreaction [...]

FX\Hulu's BETTER THINGS: Truth or Dare | Toys in Teen's Vagina


Here's Better Things' rather ambiguous ABOUT THE SHOW posted on FX:
Better Things is the story of Sam Fox (Pamela Adlon), a single mother and working actor with no filter, raising her three daughters, Max (Mikey Madison), Frankie (Hannah Alligood) and Duke (Olivia Edward) in Los Angeles. She also looks after her mother, Phil (Celia Imrie), an English expat with questionable faculties who lives across the street.

Whether she's earning a living, navigating her daughters’ changing lives, or trying to have one of her own, Sam approaches every challenge with fierce love, raw honesty and humor.
What FX didn't post is that Better Things is a model example of how the allure of nymphets is used by a television series to garner views. 


For example, in S01E01, recently turned 16-year-old, Max asked her mom, "Can you get pot for me?" Subsequently, Max is shown upon her bed, high on pot, in a pair of panties with her foot upon another nymphet. 


In S01E3, Max is show lounging upon her stomach in a pair of (cheeky) panties. Consequently, as Mel (Lenny Kravitz) was visiting, Max's mom demanded, "Put. Pants. On." (For a number of reasons, including this scene, I suspect that that is not Sam's (Adlon's) derrière in the (above) FX advertisement for Better Things.)


In S01E04, after Sam mistakenly set off the fire alarm, Max and her friends come out of the bedroom to investigate but with no explanation as to why an Asian nymphet is in a pair of turquoise panties. 


In S01E05, the viewers are reminded that there's nothing like the allure of (ballerina) nymphets (i.e., teen's in tights and leotards). 


Just to name a few more examples, in S02E01, we're introduced to Arturo, 16-year-old Max's 32-year-old boyfriend.


And in a game of Truth or Dare, Duke dares a pre-teen, "Put four Monopoly pieces in your vagina." She did! And another pre-teen is dared to yell, "Penis!" at the adults. She did and was awarded an air high-five from a man!


Very interestingly, Pamela Adlon and Louis C.K. are co-creators of Better Things, which is not surprising in light of Louis C.K.'s I Love You, Daddy (2017), which is a model example of how the allure of nymphets is used in a film. 

In the film, that additionally starred Adlon, Glen Topher (C.K.), a television writer and producer, is surprised by his teen daughter''s (Chloë Grace Moretz) strong attraction to a middle-aged film director (John Malkovich)


Unsurprisingly, Better Things, which has been renewed for a fifth season, has a 97% Average Tomatometer and a 85% average Audience Score.

Famous Age-Gap Couple: Leonardo DiCaprio & Camila Morrone

Leonardo DiCaprio & Camila Morrone 

I related in Teens Love and Want to F*ck James Franco: A Study of a Life and Works from Daniella Scott of Cosmopolitan related that Leonardo DiCaprio met Camila Morrone when she was 12, reunited with her when she was 19, and shortly thereafter started openly dating the actress.

Perez Hilton's post "Leonardo DiCaprio’s New GF Responds To Nasty Instagram Comments About [Age-Gap] Relationship!" related that 44-year-old DiCaprio‘s 22-year-old girlfriend, Morrone, responded via an Instagram video to trolls who left disparaging comments about her two-year relationship with DiCaprio. (i.e., They started openly dating when Leo was 42 and Camila was 19.)


Very interestingly, Leo has not been widely canceled for his age-gap relationship, but some trolls left comments on Morrone's video like: “Leo only cares about your body” and “You only have a couple more years before he dumps you girl! Collect your bag 😍”. 
Lastly, we know Morrone from her role as a naughty teen in Never Goin' Back (2018). Here's IMDb's plot summary:
Jessie and Angela, high school dropouts, are taking a week off to chill at the beach. Too bad their house got robbed, rent's due, they're about to get fired, and they're broke.

Scott Menzel of We Live Entertainment opined that Never Goin' Back (2018) is: "A sweet and raunchy [e.g., lipstick lesbianism, cocaine use, etc.] tale of glorious idiocy."

TAN: Quick Bites | Director Nicholas Ray's (44) Sex with Actress Natalie Wood (16)


Caroline Howe related in her Daily Mail review of Shawn Levy's The Castle on Sunset: Life, Death, Art and Scandal at Hollywood's Chateau Marmont that 44-year-old director Nicholas Ray had sex with 16-year-old actress Natalie Wood. 

16-year-old actress Natalie Wood & 44-year-old director Nicholas Ray

Consequently, actor Dennis Hopper went around the Chateau with a gun hoping to ironically 'beat the shit' out of Ray and "win over" Natalie.

I related in Teens Love and Want to F*ck James Franco: A Study of a Life and Works that James Franco composed the following two stanzas in the poem "Chateau Dreams" from his book of prose Directing Herbert White

In '54, forty-three-year-old Nick Ray
Fucked fifteen-year-old Natalie Wood in Bungalow 2

Thus, per Franco, Wood was 15 when she was "fucked" by Ray. And only God knows how many nymphets had sex in the infamous Chateau Marmont, but Glenys Roberts related in a Daily Mail post that: 

Scarlett Johansson and Benicio Del Toro
"A 19-year-old Scarlett Johansson was so overcome by its heady atmosphere in 2004 that she couldn’t wait to get upstairs with [thirty-seven-year-old] Puerto Rican star ­Benicio Del Toro and ripped off his clothes in the lift. ‘We were making out or having sex or something,’ she readily admitted later."

TAN: Quick Bites | Azalea's "Started" & Sugar Daddys

Stephen Daw wrote on Billboard

On Friday (May 3), Azalea released the wild video for her new single “Started,” [...] The visual sees one way of accomplishing that, with Azalea marrying a rich old man for his money.

As the video continues, Azalea slowly starts to grow tired of her new beau and their relationship. That is, until another version of herself and drag superstar Trixie Mattel appear in an infomercial for a poison cake mix to kill a sugar daddy. 

“If your name’s in his will and you want your bread/ Call 1-833-DADDYS-DEAD,” the pair sing.

However, when it comes to age-gap relationships, the gold digger motif is typically misunderstood, because a gold digger doesn't target older men. A gold digger targets men - of any age.

TAN: Quick Bites | Bari Weiss' Schoolgirl Classmates Perform Oral Sex

We're starting a new feature called TAN: Quick Bites, which are TL;DR posts about the allure of nymphets in pop culture. 

We'll start this feature with a post about Bari Weiss' schoolmates at Shady Side Academy. 

Bari Weiss shared with Evgenia Peretz for her Vanity Fair profile MAD ABOUT BARI WEISS: THE NEW YORK TIMES PROVOCATEUR THE LEFT LOVES TO HATE (May 2019) that  freshman nymphets (i.e, 14 and 15-year-olds) at Shady Side Academy, Weiss' private Pittsburgh high school, fellated in ski houses:

At her traditional high school, “where freshman girls were giving guys blow jobs in their ski houses,” Weiss says she felt excruciatingly nerdy and alienated, though she was student-council president. 

Of course, we're not surprised - especially after Tom Wolfe related in Hooking Up that in high schools and junior high schools, from the plush suburbs of Washington to the underprivileged schools of the South Bronx, 13 and 14-year-old girls were performing fellatio on boys between classes.

Netflix's WHAT LIES BELOW (2021): A Teen Touched By Her Mother's Lover


I heard about What Lies Below (2021), "the wild No. 1 movie on Netflix", from the "Sleeps With The Fishes" episode of Slate's Culture Gabfest podcast. Here's Netflix's plot summary:
Back home at her lake house, [Liberty] a teenager begins to suspect that a sinister force lurks beneath the surface of [John] her mother's too-perfect new lover. 

Stephen Metcalf mentioned on the podcast that Liberty's, "[...] age is never specified, I think, in order to keep some of the movie's genuine creepiness at bay." However, IMDb clarified that Liberty was 16. 


The movie opened with Liberty peering over Exploring Lost Worlds to peek at the camp counselor before an even younger camper snapped a picture of Liberty's cleavage. "Perv!"


Upon returning to the lake house, Liberty watched John, her mother's lover, emerge from the lake in barely a speedo. Impressed and passive-aggressively "groomed", Liberty whispered, "Holy crap." Then Liberty's mother overshared with her teen daughter, "I know right? I'm riding him constantly."


While John hugged Liberty's mother, he kino escalated Liberty's shoulder. (Would feminists consider John's behavior a fatherly touch or grooming? I say, at a minimum, passive-aggressive grooming.) Consequently, the teen masturbated while touching the spot that John rubbed. #pun


However, even the most open nympholept\ephebophile would agree that John's sniffing the shower curtain while Liberty showered was "creepy". 

I won't spoil the ending, but let's say that, in terms of his relationship with the mother and the daughter, John shared the same fate as R., the famous writer in Nabokov's Transparent Things.

DONNY'S BAR MITZVAH (2021): "A Rude and Raunchy Coming-of-Age" with Teen Handjob Hannah

Kristen Yoonsoo Kim's New York Times review called Donny’s Bar Mitzvah "A Rude and Raunchy Coming-of-Age". Kim's first paragraph will serve as a plot:

The year is 1998. Donny Drucker (Steele Stebbins) is 13 years old and his family has thrown him a glitzy, red-carpet-worthy bar mitzvah, inviting classmates and relatives to toast his newfound adulthood. Shot entirely like camcorder footage from the point of view of a hired videographer, Jonathan Kaufman’s debut film, which he wrote and directed, has all the potential to be endearing and nostalgic, even if it’s slim on plot. Instead, “Donny’s Bar Mitzvah” — which is littered with chaotic party scenes of horny, dysfunctional attendees — oscillates between offensive and offensively unamusing.

For the purposes of this blog, we'll focus on the "raunchy coming-of-age" parts of the movie.

Approximately, three minutes into the film, we're given in the impression that Donny loves DP.  

In addition, we learned a lot about Hannah, aka Handjob Hannah, Donny's middle-school classmate. We learned that she got "finger blasted" in class while watching Bill Nye" and apparently Hannah doesn't restrict her sexual services to handjobs. Here's the dialogue that took place between the middle-schoolers at the bar mitzvah:

"Handjob Hannah?"
"You know she got finger blasted last week in class while watching Bill Nye The Science Guy?"
"Yes, I know that."

"Dude. Hannah is a whore. Kiss her? Yo man. You're gonna get a blow job tonight!"
"I mean. He's right. You are gonna get your dick sucked bro."

Lastly, we learned from Hannah that her dad called her "sugar tits", and she was part of the team of nymphets demanding that another young guest, "Show us your dick!"  

But Hannah was not involved in the middle-school lipstick lesbian kissing scene.

But Hannah did remind me Amy who was Gatsby's (Timothée Chalamet) gorgeous and sexually advanced Jewish high school sweetheart in Woody Allen's A Rainy Day in New York (2019)

Gatsby shared, "Amy was gorgeous and so sexually advanced. Word on Amy was she performed oral sex at a Bar Mitzvah. I think they should make that a part of every Jewish holiday [...] And what a great Hanukkah gift."

Kim's New York Times review wasn't favorable, but Donny’s Bar Mitzvah got a whopping 83% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes and 7.3 out of 10 stars on IMDb.
