If you were a teen guy coming up in the latter half of the 20th century, I'll bet you at least tried to cop a feel. I mean you had to try. It's what your date, not to mention society at large, expected of you.
The girls knew it too.
"Oh! I've been out with Benny three times now, and he hasn't even tried to cop a feel... I think he must be a fag!"
Yup, people talked like that.
I guess it's one thing to try for a feel when you're a teen out with another teen, and it's a little different when you're a fifty year old exec in the entertainment biz auditioning a teenage wannabee.
But here's the thing; all those middle-aged exec types are still teenagers at heart.
Hell, even Silvio Berlusconi still feels like he's a teen at heart!
They're not trying to take advantage of vulnerable kids...
They're just trying to recapture their youth.
