prom corsageFor awhile there, it was looking like the Minnesota teenager who'd convinced a porn star to join him at prom would have to cancel his dream date. Mike Stone's high school principal was not about to let a woman from the, ahem, adult film industry into her school. But don't waste one more minute feeling bad for the kid!

When a date with a bootylicious babe is at stake, 18-year-old boys are nothing if not inventive. Mike Stone is throwing his OWN "porn prom" at his house. Good for him.

Listen; I'm not entirely crazy about the whole teenage boy inviting a porn star to prom thing. It's not so much the whole "teenage boy watches porn" thing because, if it's not porn, it's mom's Victoria's Secret catalog. It's what teenage boys do! But the fact that Mike sent messages to 400-some women screams "objectifying" women. I'd like to think someone will sit him down and have a good heart-to-heart about placing value on a woman for more than her looks. That's what I'd do if he were my son.

But apparently Mike's parents are doing something right. They're raising a kid who doesn't just sit around whining that someone told him "no." He does something about it. It's a nice change from the raft of crybabies whose parents enable them by running to the court system to sue anyone who looks at their kid cross-eyed. At the risk of sounding like a cliche factory, I'd much prefer to be raising a kid who is able to roll with the punches and come out on the other side, standing tall and on their own two feet.

And despite the slightly crass name, the Porn Prom doesn't sound that much different from what kids who aren't into the whole "prom thing" have been doing for years. Mike Stone and a whole bunch of his friends are going to get together and have a good time. Sounds pretty awesome to me!

What would you do if you were Mike Stone's parents? Support his Porn Prom or shut it down?
