Otherwise, I'm useless. Just couldn't read and not offer something.

I just wanted to reassure you that just because your daughter is curious about sexiness and sex appeal doesn't mean she's lost her innocence.
Thanks. I remember reading my friend's older sister's Seventeen and pretending that Barbie got pregnant from swimming with Ken (obviously didn't know how it really happened). I know it's mostly innocent. I'm just not sure how or if I should address it.
