    The Birds And The Bees

    I lay on my bed and waited to die – I was almost 12.   I knew ************ was wrong, it could make you go blind the priests told us. However, like all young boys I was a prolific ****** with perfect sight; priests were liars! So I carried on  – until...

    I remember I couldn't wait

    Murder In Celebration

    I have a friend who is an utter idealist. He recently returned from a family holiday to Florida where he visited the town of Celebration. He was bowled over by its celluloid realisation of the American dream – white picket fences et al.  “So what if it’s a...

    I Remember Puberty

    Although most girls would have considered puberty to be a gross thing, I thought of it more as myself growing up and maturing. I had seen my older sister naked plenty of times and wasn't grossed out by her pubic hair at all. Puberty came when I was 8. I had breasts when I was 9...
