What if Jack and Jill have sex while Jack has been drinking and Jill is intoxicated? On the intoxication principle, Jack is responsible for having sex but Jill is not, which undoubtedly is sometimes sexual assault. There are two nagging difficulties, however. Suppose when Jill sobers she sincerely denies being sexually assaulted because she wanted to have sex while intoxicated. Must we conclude that a sober, intelligent woman cannot know whether she was assaulted?
Soble outlines “Kant’s sex problem” and Kant’s solution, Soble also gives his own solutions, and in learning both I feel the solution is in externalism. Immanuel Kant defines his second formulation of the Categorical Imperative as knowing the value of a person. It is demeaning to use a person without his or her consent for self-gratification, especially sexually. Kant describes this as using a person simply to serve a means rather than an end, simply put rather than being a concrete loving act with the end of creating new life sex treated as only “scratching an itch”. The idea that Kant, “must take on the other’s ends for their own sake, not because that is an effective way to advance my goals in using the other,” is a way of saying that a man must care enough about the other person treat them as fairly and justly as he wants to be treated (Soble 228).
However, there is no truth to it, but rather it is merely a vehicle for social control. Foucault distinguishes the discourses of sexuality from the science of sexuality, while also discussing how enforcement of the discourse on sex was made possible by various strategies of social control, such as the medicalization and scientification of sex. Further, he asserts that sex and sexuality became social issues in an effort to manage and direct the life of individuals, and this change contributed to providing society with more power over individual bodies through the “true” discourse of sex as this discourse internalized over time. According to Foucault, “truth is a thing of this world: it is produced only by virtue of multiple forms of constraint as it induces regular effects of power” (1980:131). Therefore, he suggests that the production of “truth” is not entirely separable from power, and knowledge is power, as it constitutes new objects of inquiry that can be manipulated and controlled (1994:97).
There still are going to be people that won’t ask for help when they need it, especially young ladies. I believe that they should be able to get birth control without parental consent because they need to be able to protect themselves at all costs, they might be too scared to ask for it when they really need it, and if guys can get condoms without permission, then I feel that it’s only fair if girls are able to get birth control. Teenagers surely know the risks of pregnancy that come with sex, especially unprotected sex. Most boys might leave it to the girls to get birth or control or other kinds of protection, but everyone in the situation needs to be protecting themselves and taking proper precautions.

Catcalling, by reducing the person solely to their physical appearances and lastly, fantasising about someone, as it objectifies them solely on their physical appearances and can in turn symbolise men or women holistically (Halwani, 2010, pp 186). Allowing for a broader discussion in relation to when sexual objectification is morally permissible (if ever), idea’s constructed by Immanuel Kant, Martha Nussbaum and David Soble are broadly evaluated in order to construct when sexual objectification is permissible.

Though contradictory of Kant’s views of sexual objectification, Nussbaum believes sexual objectification is permissible if it is done simultaneously, with a mutual respect and if the parties are of equal social status, eliminating any risks of feeling dehumanised or subordinate. Lastly, the concerns surrounding pornography and sexual objectification are exploited through Soble’s view, illustrating that when sexual objectification is put into context with pornography, it is morally wrong as it defeats the purpose of humanity by treating one solely as a sex object.
Some schools decide to teach abstinence only programs, which are not effective enough. I believe this because some parents do not believe their teen should be taught to never have sex until marriage. Along with that parents are again being the ones who need to be educated before the teenagers are. There are parents do not agree with their teeanger being taught sex education in schools because they think their teenager is only being taught about having sex. What parents do not fully know is there is more to sex education than just sex.
All minors are allowed to get a prescription for birth control without a parent’s permission in AZ. People fore it argue that no matter what they say if teens want to have sex they will no matter what, either with or without the parents’ consent. Just as the lack of access to birth control does not stop kids from having sex, neither does the ability to obtain contraception mean that they will start having sex. However, easy access to birth control does make sex safer. Finally, it’s been proven over and over that the abstinence-only approach, so popular in the U.S., doesn’t work.

Other cultures view sex as a raw pleasure activity while our society has elevated it to the expression of a person’s identity and moral code. Chasing Amy contributes to this view of society as the whole movie centers around sexual beings and the influence of sex on their lives. Chasing Amy is an account of people’s fears about sex and relationships as well as the inhibitions and insecurities that are attached to them. Therefore, the best way to understand the movie'’ message is to analyze the sexual identity of the characters in it. The characters are used to portray the stereotypically viewed male and female as well as the exceptions.
