    The "Birds And The Bee's" Talk

    My parents were hippies and have always been pretty open minded about sex so they never kept anything secret, but never the less, it was still a shock when my Mother decided she needed to sit me down and do a hugely awkward talk about the "birds and the bees" It was a fair few...

    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...
