From THE TELEGRAPH:
The Rt Rev Richard Chartres said recently that not enough was being done to address the problem of "advertising, the internet (and) the stimulation of sexual appetites of young people in their dress."
Asked in a newspaper interview about clergy sex abuse, he replied: "Taking away innocence of young people, it is ghastly, and I wouldn't want to collude in any culture of cover-up. Although I have to say that when future generations look back on us they will say that they were very careful about abusing bodies but what about the amount of filth, innuendo, pornography they allowed to sluice through the minds of our young people."
COMMENT: He may have a point. Although, to be honest, I doubt it is possible to stimulate the sexual appetites of teenage boys anymore than they naturally are to begin with. If I remember rightly, I was pretty much turned on by anything and everything when I was 14 years old. For example, the buses that were used on the school run were old and their engines vibrated like washing machines on full spin. This invariably led to all us spotty herberts getting off at our destination with our school satchels placed strategically in front of us to avoid embarrassment.
