in a lonely apartment
a big empty house
a strategically parked car in the city
and also the suburbs and also the country
and it starts out simple just like in the movies
which all they know and how they expect it to be
and life is so hard and school is a bitch
and parents don't care or they care way too much
and one thing leads to another
and many adults aren't all that much better
and there's a brief moment, and then
without further pause for thought
they pray that they won't get caught

and in a perfect world i would make a mad dash in
vaginaman, the defender of safe sex
so that everyone who needs them has condoms
and knows how to store them and knows how to use them
and girls can take pills and know what's going on in their bodies
and have a choice and free will and nothing's a mystery
and everybody's honest about their sexual history
and there's no such thing as an unwanted pregnancy
and there's no such thing as dying from hiv
and there's no such thing as rape or illegal activity
and the first time you do it you're prepared emotionally
and everyone would get advice
(and not a lecture)
from their mother
as much as they try to protect us
it's going to happen one way or another

and in a perfect world they would teach it in schools
but it's easier said than done (so they say)
however, so is taking care of a child at fourteen
babies having babies
(i'll give you a clue,
teaching abstinance may be proper
but it doesn't work)
we don't live in a perfect world and if we stopped lying to ourselves
we might find another way, you see
and then i could retire
and my memory would inspire
and we wouldn't need vaginaman to save the day

Hey! I'm going to send this over to Village People. It fits better there than in Sex Ethics and Politics. See ya over there!
