Premarital Sex Crisis: Why the YU Beacon article is such a big deal

| |

Premarital Sex Crisis: Why the YU Beacon article is such a big dealI remember way back in the mid 90′s when the frum community started to awaken to the fact that high school aged kids were leaving the path in droves. At first everyone denied it was happening, but slowly parents admitted to their wayward children and things started to happen. Camps and yeshivas appeared on the scene and at some point frum rehab programs for frum boys and girls suddenly made themselves known, but the off the derech crisis is one of those things that people know think they know how to deal with – premarital sex in the age of the shidduch crisis is not something which could be dealt with, because sex rules and isn’t physically damaging like drugs or alcohol, fact is, sex is good for you. Then again Fox News never talked about the off the derech crisis.

For the record, I think the article was fiction, virgins don’t write like that and who rents a nice hotel room to lose their virginity anymore? That sounds so 1960′s…I myself did the deed in the back seat of my 92 Toyota and according to most of my frum friends, losing your virginity is not planned, it just kind of happens.

    I would be happy to lead a discussion on this topic. Y.U.
    needs someone to facilitate a conversion regarding having loyalty to Y.U. and
    creating a safe forum for students to discuss issues of concern. Y.U. is a
    fantastic school and I have spent most of my life there as either a student or
    teacher. I am greatly disturbed by the bad press this article has created. No
    other institution can match torah umadah which is communicated at Y.U. Let us
    graduates and students have pride in our fantastic place of Torah learning .
