This, apparently, has caused some kind of a ruckus:

We're afraid we're going to hassle the Hoff a little bit over this one.TMZ reports that David Hasseloff had an unusual father-daughter outing with his girl Hayley Hasselhoff on Wednesday night. According to the site, the former Baywatch hunk took Hayley to a launch party for a new line of lingerie. Which was being held at West Hollywood "erotic boutique" Coco de Mer.Yes, an erotic boutique. Where they sell all sorts of prongy things that vibrate. And probably a questionable lotion or two as well.My advice to everyone reporting on this story in this fashion? Chill out. A 17 year old is, first of all, less than a year away from being able to walk into that same store all by herself. Second, 17 year old teenagers know that sex, lingerie and sex toys exist. Instead of treating them like scary places full of "prongy things", what if we tried presenting them as places where a person can learn about their sexuality and find things to help them have pleasurable sex? If they already know that sex exists, they'll probably be thrilled to find out a place like that exists. (If I meet a teen who finds out where I work, their first question is always "how old do I have to be?"). Let's stop treating teenagers like infants and start treating them like the young adults they are.I also have to take issue with the depiction of the store. Would you want to shop in a place that sold prongy things and questionable lotions? I sure wouldn't. Why couldn't they just say vibrators and lubrication instead of making it sound like Harry Potter would buy his school supplies there?Do you have any stories of people freaking out over teenage sexuality?
