Again, much like 'Are you popular?' this is funny stuff. Obviously it wasn't intended to be amusing when it was made back then - but then I find it hard to believe that even kids and teenagers who saw this when it came out took it completely seriously. Things haven't changed that much - this is very polite but 'the man,' 'the nanny state' or whatever you want to call it, is still trying to control and 'advise' teenagers. It's all just about sex - and making sure that purity and abstinence are values that teens aspire to.
I have to say I love the scene when they say goodbye - three possible scenarios are given. It isn't until the last one that it's 'just right.' It completely reminds me of a 1950s teen version of the fairytale/fable 'Goldilocks and the three bears.'
Funny, not particularly effective and very, very kitsch.
