song against sex


Day 2: Did you have any experiences as a child that might have foreshadowed your sexuality?
  • When I was five or six, people would ask me if I wanted to get married [speaking of, wtf!] and I’d consistently answer that I wanted to adopt twelve kids—six girls, six boys—but I didn’t want to get married.
  • When I was twelve, my grandmother attempted to give me “the talk,” but I was extremely uncomfortable and so unresponsive that she gave up. At one point, when I said I “didn’t know” the answer to a question, she got mad and said, “Who would know, Peter Pan?!” Haha.
  • During a game of Truth or Dare at a sleepover with two friends, the inevitable “fantasy” question came up. All of us were supposed to share, so I elected to go last, to give me more time to think something up. ;) The entire time my friends were describing “the farthest they had ever imagined themselves going with a boy,” I think, my mind was racing trying to come up with something they hadn’t already said. I failed miserably. I think I ended up saying something about kissing a boy, which ironically is the honest answer to that question. They were a bit offended!

“Myself When Young” [Daphne du Maurier]

“When I did eventually hear ‘the facts of life’ at eighteen from a school friend, I stared in astonishment and disbelief. What that what all the love stories I had read been about? What an extraordinary thing for people to want to do!”

“I suddenly thought how awful just being married would be.”
