Gossip Girl and the A list

Have you noticed how sex is such a large aspect in Gossip Girl and The A-List? Whats so great about it?

The focus of virginity is so large it takes away from the rest of the book. I love both of these series but I still think it's rediculous. My opinion of a character will not change based on thier status of virginity.

I know that many people have sex in hgh school but shouldn't there be a different focus? Books like Forever that are all about sex should be left to do into the gritty details about sex. Series about other things could mention it everyonce in a while but must we continually talk about it?

Atleast Gossip Girl preaches safe sex. In I like it like that Nate buys condoms. The A-list has pregnancy scares.

OMG Forever was totally X rated.....I don't get why teens should have to read this sort of stuff. It's just not appropriate. I, for one, don't want to read about sex 24/7...

I agree with every word. It's like these authors have nothing better to write about. Have some real thoughts, people!

I don't particularly like Gossip Girl but atleast if it's talking about it, it's telling them to be safe. But constanly? That's like tellin them to go out a do it right there. Might as well post it on a billboard get more publicity out of it.

I don't read either of those series, but I'd like to think I'm smart enough to not run out and get knocked up because some character in a book is having sex.
