"With its emphasis on sexual pleasure divorced from the context of a lifelong loving union, the comprehensive sex education favoured by the Sex Education Forum and its associated groups creates in young people the expectation that they will have a series of casual sexual relationships. As the social commentator, Cassandra Hough has remarked: ‘It is no wonder that the hookup/friends-with-benefits/anything-goes sexual culture has become normalised among today’s emerging adults.’5

Moral confusion
It is within that culture that child sexual exploitation has been allowed to go undetected, and vulnerable young people have found themselves without the protection they desperately need.

A serious case review published by the Bristol Safeguarding Children Board last year notes ‘an underlying confusion for practitioners in distinguishing between underage but consensual sexual activity between peers and child sexual abuse and sexual exploitation’.6 But that confusion does not exist in a vacuum. It is rather ‘rooted in the complex and contradictory cultural, legal and moral norms around sexuality, and in particular teenage sexual experimentation’.7 Put simply, a major part of the problem lies in the moral confusion that has resulted from an abandonment of moral absolutes."

"The Oxfordshire report further states that: ‘[T]here was…an acceptance of a degree of underage sexual activity that reflects a wider societal reluctance to consider something “wrong”,’ and argues that ‘action to prevent harm’ should always take precedence over ‘action to be non-judgmental’.”

"Like Peter Singer and Jeff McMahan, I have sympathy for Anna Stubblefield, the Rutgers professor who was convicted in 2015 of raping a severely disabled man known as “D.J.” Her crime, horrid as it was, arose not from bad intentions or from failed duty, but from the consistent application of ideas we are all asked to applaud.

Stubblefield had dedicated much of her career to advocating for the “radical inclusion” of disabled people—and given her principles, rape was the only way to do it. Under a certain view, one that happens to be dominant today, people can be considered fully human only to the extent that they enter into sexual relationships. To refuse sexual expression to any class of persons—gays, say—is to deny their humanity."
