"It's highly ironic this comes out right after the launch of the biggest movie of the season, which is 'Sex in the City.' The No. 1 movie that all teenage girls want to see right now is 'Sex in the City. Our culture continues to tell them the way to be cool is to dress provocatively and to consider non-marital sexual activity to be normative."
