20 Thoughts on “Forever Tainted

  1. :eyebrow: you were a dirty little Girl!

    Some things never change :nana:

  2. This was a really girlie post. I think I just grew a uterus or two.

  3. Gemini – Yeah, turns out it’s on the 100 most controversial books. Now that I found that list, I have a lot more books to read.

    Fab – It’s not THAT girlie, it was the first time I got girl wood.

  4. The thought of your girl wood is giving me boy wood.

  5. You know I have never read that book. I have read probably all her other books… And all the babysitters club, and goosebumps (of my time) but I never got to get girl wood. Hmmmmm. My parents didn’t nurture me like yours did…. :whistle:

  6. I read that book about age 13 I think. My mom had no clue either. I never got the sex talk – other than don’t have it until your married. Ok Mom, ya whatever.
    My son knows more about sex at 9 than I did before 13. Geez!

  7. “Girl wood” :lmao:

    How funny, the only sex talk I received was the “not till you’re married” line also. I think I learned everything I needed to know about sex through romance novels. They get quite explicit!

  8. TMP – I had NO talks of sex with my parents, I didn’t even know how to use a pad or a tampon. I litterally learned everything I know from my friends…and they probably were more honest than a parent would be. The closest my parents ever gave me a talk was giving me the book Where Do I Come From? :rolleyes:

    Cheri – I never even had them say that, I don’t think my parents actually believe in no sex before marriage.

    GDG – I have to wonder if my parents figured if they didn’t tell me anything I would have no clue and therefore not try it. Well, I had no clue and therefore never was able to really do anything until I had a boyfriend who knew stuff.

  9. I used to read those books too. They were very enlightening.

  10. And I thought my parents were bad when they gave me the abstinence lecture… and then that was it. My mom never told me about tampons either.. OR shaving. I remember at like 13 starting to shave my legs and stuff and my mom noticed and she was weird about it.

    I have learned from my parents lack of parenting. I have told my son more about the birds and the bees in his 11 years than my mom STILL has…. And my parents NEVER told me not to do drugs or join gangs or to stay in school. Nope they just expected me to figure it out. Hell, I figured it out when I got knocked up at 15. (had my son at 16) Amazing… Then they took my curfew away from me because I was officially an adult. Um, yeah….. ok.

  11. Geez, all these years I’ve thought Judy Blume was like Amelia Bedelia.

  12. I don’t think my mom ever knew I was reading romance novel porn. Otherwise I never would’ve learned a thing. Sex education in school was all so… clinical.

  13. The sex talk I got was very clinical: “every month, a woman’s egg readies for pregnancy…” blah blah blah. Nothing about my want to rip Joe L’s clothes off. πŸ™‚

    I read that book in secret, like I had a taboo something no one else knew about. I even, gulp, highlighted some of the story. Hey, I was 12. And yes, I was (and still am) a DORK. :wave:

  14. What a great book! I too read it a wee bit earlier than, possibly, I should’ve, and didn’t quite get it at the time…

    That’s why my habit of rereading books comes in really handy πŸ˜€

  15. Avi – Well nice to see something does :poke:

    TMP – The only time sex ever came up with my mom was when one of my brother’s friend’s found a condom. She asked what it was for :doh: I wasn’t even having sex at the time :lmao:

    Jane – You should read it, just for fun. Judy Blume is actually way more controversial than a lot of people probably realize.

    GDG – Skinemax helped too :whistle:

    Tara – I didn’t even know clinical stuff…my doctor had to explain to me all my parents :paperbag: So you read Forever too? Are you sure we weren’t separated at birth?

    Stephanie – I wonder if it’s on audiobook πŸ‘Ώ

  16. Robin, I do believe we might be related! You’re my Bahstan sister! :rock:

  18. Well, now I might have to request this one from the library… hehe πŸ˜‰
