ANGER AT TEEN ‘POP YA CHERRY’ NIGHT
A POPULAR bar has come under fire for hosting an under 18’s Valentine’s event which encourages youngsters to have SEX – called ‘Pop Ya Cherry Parties’.
Teens are being targeted by new events company ‘Pop Ya Cherry Parties’ who are holding their first night in an exclusive members bar on Feb 13 for teenagers aged 14 to 18.
The party organisers describe themselves as “the newest and most exciting provider of under 18s clubbing in the UK” and claim to throw parties that “top even the best over 18s nights in the world”.
But outraged locals have seen an onslaught of posters advertising the night at a bar in Esher, Surrey, with “piles” of them plastered across a bus stop in nearby Teddington – which is regularly used by school children.
They believe the “Pop Ya Cherry” metaphor is directly promoting underage sex and is OUTRAGED: Thomas Foran particularly encouraging vulnerable young girls to lose their virginities prematurely.
Thomas Foran, 34, said: “I was really shocked by it – it’s obviously encouraging teens to have underage sex, and it’s wrong.
“The term ‘pop ya cherry’ in particular obviously implies that if you’re a virgin you should go there to have sex.”
