It was January 1964, and America was on the brink of cultural upheaval. In less than a month, the Beatles would land at JFK for the first time, providing an outlet for the hormonal enthusiasms of teenage girls everywhere. The previous spring, Betty Friedan had published The Feminine Mystique, giving voice to the languor of middle-class housewives and kick-starting second-wave feminism in the process. In much of the country, the Pill was still only available to married women, but it had nonetheless become a symbol of a new, freewheeling sexuality.

And in the offices of TIME, at least one writer was none too happy about it. The United States was undergoing an ethical revolution, the magazine argued in an un-bylined 5000-word cover essay, which had left young people morally at sea.The article depicted a nation awash in sex: in its pop music and on the Broadway stage, in the literature of writers like Norman Mailer and Henry Miller, and in the look-but-don’t-touch boudoir of the Playboy Club, which had opened four years earlier. “Greeks who have grown up with the memory of Aphrodite can only gape at the American goddess, silken and seminude, in a million advertisements,” the magazine declared.

I'm happy Adam shared this...it's an interesting article, eyeopening...it's reflective and contemplative just like Adam...

Just as the article indicates (in my opinon) it's important to find a balance to not vilify premarital sex without completely losing the sanctity of the act...

I think a good balance is important in all parts of life...political and religious extremes have only led to violence and death, extreme diets aren't healthy...it's not about being stubborn and always getting your way or to always give in but to know when it is smartest to give in and when to stand up and fight...
