1) What did you learn about sexuality from your teachers? Friends? Church? Parents? Books?
From teachers- what I learned in health class- basic stuff like sperm, egg, attraction. I don't remember any talk about
From Friends- not much of anything. I had few friends and we were girlfriends- talked girly stuff, not much about guys.
From Parents- absolutely nothing. There was no sex talk at all.
From Books- I learned about intercourse and that there are strong feelings. I learned about periods and the female anatomy.
2) What information and ideas were the norm when you ...view middle of the document...
Saw a birth video which we
we had to get parental permission to see. Learned proper terms for body parts and biological functions. One fact I
learned- boys have penises, girls have vaginas and they do meet in sexual intercourse.
6) Is there any information you wished you had received about sex but didn't?
That sex is pleasurable and not so dirty. It is only "dirty" if you are not respected- it is just an act.
It is not just for making babies. There are feelings women are allowed to talk about.
7) Do you think most people were virgins when they got married? If you have been married, what year were you first married? Apply the virgin question to the year you first got married.
Before 1960, I would say most people were virgins before marriage. The 1960's opened up a whole new era of
freedom sexually and I do not think many people waited. It was not so much a taboo. Kids were becoming more
openly rebellious and curious. Birth control pills were available. I was married the first time
1973. I was not a virgin, but I married the guy I lost my virginity to.
