Sign our petition to Teen Vogue demanding they stop promoting sexual activity to children! 

Teen Vogue.com decided it was in the best interest of children to publish a jaw-dropping article instructing teen and pre-teen youth on how to have so-called “safe anal sex.”Sign now! This petition will go directly to the editors of TeenVogue.com



Teen Vogue shocked the world with their featured article promoting so-called “safe anal sex.” Teens and pre-teens routinely read Teen Vogue for the latest trends, especially this time of year as kids are going back to school. Without a doubt, the purpose of the article is to target children with dangerous sex advice.

Protecting children is our responsibility and Teen Vogue must know what they are doing is wrong! For this reason, CitizenGO partnered with Enough Is Enough earlier this year in a call to action to “say no to Teen Vogue.”

29,140 signed our joint petition to Teen Vogue demanding they stop promoting sexual activity to children!

Since the launch of the boycott campaign and joint petition, Teen Vogue discontinued its print edition and its editor-in-chief Elaine Welteroth and its digital editor, Philip Picardi, responsible for the content, are no longer on staff. (Mr. Picardi is the one giving us the finger in the picture below.) Further, the New York Times recently reported a deep financial loss for its publisher to the tune of $120 million. We aren’t stopping at partial victory… we demand that Teen Vogue stop encouraging children to experiment with any kind of sexual activity and remove the “Anal Sex Guide and other articles like it!

I can firmly say that we are making a difference. But, our job is not yet complete as we need to increase the pressure on the new Editor in Chief and Digital Editor.

Please take a moment to sign our joint petition to Teen Vogue’s new leadership team demanding they stop promoting sexual activity to children!

Either they stop, or we’ll continue to boycott!

Teens and tweens use the Internet as their “go-to” to get their information about sex, which is why these articles need to be deleted from Teen Vogue’s website.

For more information, please continue reading below. We’ve included a special message from Donna Rice Hughes, President and CEO of Enough is Enough. Very informative.

Thank you,

Gregory Mertz and the entire CitizenGO team

Huge Victory! Chief Editors of Teen Vogue’s Graphic ” How To” Guide on Anal Sex for Teens/Tweens Have Departed!
However, the Fight to Defend the Dignity of Our Children is NOT over…..We Need Your IMMEDIATE Help
Huge Victory!!Since Enough Is Enough (EIE) launched the “Say No To Teen Vogue”campaign in July 2018 calling out the national publication for its graphic “how to” guide on anal sex directed at its tween/tween readers, there’s been a change at the helm!
EIE’s online petition requesting Teen Vogue remove the article, ” Anal Sex: What You Need to Know/How to Do it the Right Way , generated nearly 30,000 signatures going directly into the e-mail in- boxes of Teen Vogue’s and Vogue’s editors and Conde Nast’s Board of Directors calling for the dismissal of magazine editors and for a boycott of all Conde Nast-owned publications.
SINCE THEN … the magazine ceased its print edition and its editor-in-chief Elaine Welteroth and its digital editor, Philip Picardi, responsible for the content, are no longer on staff. Further, the New York Times recently reported deep financial loss for its publisher to the tune of $120 million.
Remember This?
Teen Vogue’s (former) digital editor, Philip Picardi, responsible for the horrific “sex guide” stating: “This is anal 101, for teens, beginners, and all inquisitive folk,”  responded to our campaign in a Tweet posting a photo of him kissing another male and shooting us the finger.
He posted, “In conclusion, here’s my only reply I’ll be giving to any of the messages.”
EIE’s campaign went viral, grabbing the attention of leaders of nationally-respected family organizations who were able to join our efforts to “Say NO To Teen Vogue.” However, the graphic article was never removed. Even worse, the magazine since REPUBLISHED it again earlier this summer, another slap in the face to all who expressed public outrage.
While the impact of the editors’ departure cannot be overstated, our work is not done until this article, representing a blatant disregard for the innocence, physical and mental well being of our children, is removed and the magazine is held accountable for exploiting the dignity and innocence of our youth. Period!
Friends, please, we urge you to take a moment and click on the image above to and make your VOICE be heard. Targeting tweens and teens with graphic, inappropriate content suggesting they experiment in sexual activity of any kindcrosses the line, and we won’t stand for it.
Thank you for standing with EIE to defend the innocence and the dignity of our children!
