Roxanne Jones who is a founding editor of ESPN The Magazine and a former vice president at ESPN. Wrote an opinion piece for CNN asking mothers to encourage their sons to get a woman to text consent before they engage in sexual intercourse.
She writes –
“Never have sex with a girl unless she’s sent you a text that proves the sexual relationship is consensual beforehand.
And it’s a good idea to even follow up any sexual encounter with a tasteful text message saying how you both enjoyed being with one another — even if you never plan on hooking up again.
Crazy, I know, but I’ve actually been encouraging my son and his friends to use sexting — minus the lewd photos — to protect themselves from being wrongly accused of rape.”
I think there are some holes in her theory. But I applaud her for at least having a frank conversation with her son about being sexually responsible.
