Parents Beware! Say NO To Teen Vogue's Explicit Advice to TeEnagers

We need you to join EIE to #SayNoToTeenVogue!

Recently, the fashion magazine Teen Vogue crossed the line by publishing a “how-to” guide on anal sex for its young readers on it’s online site. Teen Vogue’s article   Anal Sex: What You Need to Know/How to Do it the Right Way (July 7, 2017). The article, containing numerous diagrams of both the female and male genitalia that are labeled gender-neutral as “non-prostate owners” and “prostate owners," states, “This is anal 101, for teens, beginners, and all inquisitive folk."

We find it irresponsible for Teen Vogue, a mainstream teen publication owned by the trusted Condé Nast, to encourage teens and tweens to explore any type of sexual activity, for that matter. Our children must never be the target of unsolicited sexual advice from a mainstream media publication, and we urge the editors to remove the article immediately, for the safety, emotional and mental well-being of our children.

Teen Vogue needs to take responsibility for content it publishes geared toward our teens, as parents should be the primary source for teaching their children about healthy sexuality.

We need you to tell Teen Vogue to immediately remove this article from its TeenVogue.com website, and not be published in a future print version of the magazine. Please, sign the petition now which will go to the editors of Teen Vogue. Our initial goal is to reach 25,000 signatures! Be sure to forward this to your friends so we can reach our petition goal!

Also, please take a moment to view my commentary as it appeared in the Christian Post,titled, “Parents, Beware of Teen Vogue's Sex Advice for Your Kids (July 18).

Parents, please remember to be aware of information your child is accessing, since popular magazines or websites geared towards children are not always safe. YOU are the first line of defense in protecting your children from messages and content they are receiving.

Finally, we count on and need your financial support to continue these efforts to keep children safe in the digital world. Will you donate today?

Thank you for your support in protecting the innocence of all of our children!

It's the time to make being good, good again.
