2/25/18: Looking for Love: Muddy, Meandering Paths to Myself (Part Eight, Sex, Lies and The Book of Love #1)

So when it came to talking with me (his good boy son) about sex, he did all he could to prepare me for that jungle of social expectation, confusion and fear, through which any teenager must find their way. He gave me a book.

———————————–

The chapters of “Love and the Facts” of Life that I did read, left me not at all prepared for that dance

The first chapter I looked at was of course about sex. The sex act and how to do it. I ended up not reading any of this chapter. I couldn’t get passed the illustrations. The pictures of what the body parts look like and how to actually do sex, were so clinical, I had no way to relate them to what I saw in my world or on my body. It was so ridiculous I just ignored that chapter and went on to the one I could actually imagine needing some practical information about.

Ok so my very cool friend just texted me with the news that she just got the book in the mail (thus the images above) so…

This will be continued for sure.

Heh…
