I think you are kidding yourself if you think refraining from performing a play is going to save the innocence of children regarding sexuality. What you are looking for is a wholesale reform of our media and entertainment industries. I do not entirely disagree with that notion, but by the time kids get to highschool, they have already adopted many ideas about sex, drugs and rock 'n roll thanks to magazines, sitcoms, movies, and NEWS reports. What if, instead, we simply acknowledged the fact that sex is a beautiful fact of life, teenagers take part in it, and encourage responsible behavior? Lets stop pretending that our kids are somehow different than we were in high school, or that they are completely unable to think and reason on their own.
