I imagine that the swimsuit-clad young women will turn at least some of the men on, and at least some sexual encounters will ensue after the party. Plus, I wouldn't trust other people's parenting, especially today. I am a conservative Catholic; the beliefs on what adolescents should and should not be able to do of parents with more secularist, libertine mindsets clash with mine.

Even if I got confirmation that nothing would go on at the party from the parent, I would still not allow my daughter (or son) to attend. Adolescents are awfully sneaky, especially when they have a strong desire to do something - and I cannot think of any desire stronger than sex in an adolescent. Back when I was 16, I used to "chaperone" my younger brother's (then 13-14) parties in our garage. I would go out there once in a while and come back in, assuming, from the party's appearances, that nothing bad was happening and they were all having a good time. My bad. Just now, I learned that they would bring bottles of booze to the parties and hide them; and even that they started smoking pot at the parties! I really don't know how I didn't realize this, but it all went on under my nose.
Most parents realize this, you were young, if the parents are allowing this party that means they don't care, IMO. If you really don't know this as an adult then I'd say you are too stupid to have a co-ed b-party for your 18 year old girl. If you know and you just don't care than that is your right but I get sort of annoyed at the nativity from parents sometimes. And as you probably have guessed that would be a big NO from me if they were under my roof still. NO WAY! But, I don't want to raise my daughters baby yet so I think she better have a good job before she has good sex.

My daughter slept over for a party as the only girl with a really close male friend. They are in 1st grade. Lol my son doesn't do sleepovers. He has his bestie at our home most Friday nights. Lol my girl is innocent. She did tell me the boy, who lives across the street from us, and I'm close with her momma, 'kissed me!' said as if it were weird and/or gross. Lol not that night, when they were 5. She also asked me 'what is a crush?'. I asked if the boy said he had a crush on her, and she said yes. I guess I just think of it as 'puppy love'. We shall see as they get older. My girl is the tallest in her class. Lol

Parents allowing teenagers to get drunk, providing condoms to a high school co-ed sleepover, tolerating drugs, saying it's not like this is the first time for any of them . . .

I guess if parenting is too hard, the easiest thing is to just stop doing it.
