Jews and Sex on Campus

[...] One story, though it could be another urban Jewish myth (and there are lots of them), professes that at a synagogue parent bar/bat mitzvah meeting the leaders of the meeting tell the parents not to have long table cloths draping the tables at the parties because the girls are "servicing" the boys under said table and tablecloth.

The parents all wig out when that story surfaces every once in a while.

Tablecloth lengths aren't going to change a kid's behavior, guaranteed.
