Day 29: Talking about Sex with Mom

“In the Philippines, they told us that we would get pregnant if we held a boy’s hand.  Here in America, you guys act like sex is just a game.”

“Things are different, Mom.  People used to get married so that they could ensure the father of their potential child and know that the kid would be taken care of.  Now, with birth control, you don’t even have to be a mom as a result of sex.  I mean, I enjoy sex, but I don’t think I’m ready to be a mother yet.”

“So why are you ready to have sex?”
