    I remember I couldn't wait

    for puberty because I was gonna go from geek to chic, like in the coming of age movies. I was basically waiting to be made pretty.

    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...

    Would anyone even be interested to read about

    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 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...

    I recognized I was starting puberty at about 10

    years old when I noticed fuzzy hair in my private area and on my legs. Yet, I didn't start shaving my legs until I was nearly 12. At 11, my n^ppl#s began to puff out slightly and darken a bit. From 11 to 12 my pubic hair really started to grow with a light reddish brown color...

    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...
