First base, second base, third base, home run, Al Vernacchio ticked off the classic baseball terms for sex acts. His goal was to prompt the students in Sexuality and Society an elective for seniors at the private Friends Central School on Philadelphias affluent Main Line to examine the assumptions buried in the venerable metaphor.
Give me some more, urged the fast-talking 47-year-old, who teaches 9th- and 12th-grade English as well as human sexuality. Arrayed before Vernacchio was a circle of small desks occupied by 22 teenagers, six male and the rest female a blur of sweatshirts and Ugg boots and form-fitting leggings.
Grand slam, called out a boy (whod later tell me with disarming matter-of-factness that the one thing Mr. V. talked about that made me feel really good was that penis size doesnt matter).
Now, grand slam has a bunch of different meanings, replied Vernacchio, who has a masters degree in human sexuality. Some people say its an orgy, some people say grand slam is a one-night stand. Other stuff?
Grass, a girl, a cheerleader, offered.
If theres grass on the field, play ball, right, right, Vernacchio agreed, which is interesting in this rather hair-phobic society where a lot of people are shaving their pubic hair
You know theres grass, and then it got mowed, a landing strip, one boy deadpanned, instigating a round of laughter. While these kids will sit poker-faced as Vernacchio expounds on quite graphic matters, class discussions are a spirited call and response, punctuated with guffaws, jokey patter and whispered asides, which Vernacchio tolerates, to a point.

When I was a kid...we used to say..”Body By Fisher, Toys By Mattel”.
How innocent we were
I remember, back in prehistoric days, when getting her panties off was third base, and the guy having any sort of orgasm was home run,
Ah! What this snickering administrator ( supposedly "educated") fails to acknowledge is that it is impossible for a sentient being to be religiously neutral. It is also impossible for a school to be religiously neutral. His school **does** have a religious ethos that guides their courses. That "religious ethos" is godless secular humanism!
Godless secular humanism is just as religious in content and consequences as is any other religious worldview!
Courses such as this ( especially male-female classes) break down the natural modesty that is naturally protective. But...Hey! That's the point of these classes...grooming the children for sexual exploitation.
STILL hot for Teacher!
Prehistoric days? LOL. You can’t be that old.
There are days I feel that old. Particularly when I see a hot woman and realize she’s about my daughter’s age. Takes a lot of getting used to.
How old is your daughter?
You are not old at all! I’m 35 and my mother is in her 50’s,so you must be younger.
We had a late start having kids. Sounds like your mom had you in her early 20’s. That’s a much better time to have kids. I found my energy starting to decrease markedly after 50.
She was 21 going on 22.
