Adolescent sexuality conference promotes shocking teen sex message, then lies about messaging

0

The Seaside Adolescent Sexuality Conference in Seaside, Oregon is a longstanding, contentious fixture in the coastal Oregon community. The conference is decades old, but in recent years, leaked conference materials (“leaked” to the hands of parents, namely) have drawn media spotlight to the event as taxpayers and parents question why teen sexuality education is being approached from the licentious and gratuitous perspectives of questionable conference organizers.

Organizers and sponsors include groups that stand to profit handsomely when teens practice the misguided sexual advice given at the conference. These include the pharmaceutical company that manufactures the Mirena IUD, and Planned Parenthood – a behemoth figure in the abortion industry. Planned Parenthood’s model is similar to that of the Seaside Adolescent Sexuality Conference: give teens faulty advice and low-quality contraceptives – making sure to exclude parents from the conversation – and wait for kids to come back frightened, pregnant, and abused as the consequence.

Parents are shocked and betrayed by the pornographic, dangerous, and unethical behaviors promoted by conference organizers. But when media have given concerned parties a platform to voice their objections to the tax-funded event, conference organizers have poo-pooed the concerns and denied the veracity of claims despite hard, tangible evidence to the contrary (including footage recorded by student attendees wherein keynote speakers recommend masturbating over Skype, sexting, and visiting porn sites). Kids as young as age 11 attend this conference. Here’s a recent exposé on the Seaside Adolescent Sexuality Conference, which is slated to host the annual conference this coming April.

In short, conference masterminds assume the same attitudes of denial and obfuscation that have long protected organizations like Planned Parenthood from the scrutiny they deserve. So confident are tax-paid organizers of the conference that they are above scrutiny, that one director said he was “walking out” if the interviewer asked him questions about conference content.
