Talking about my teenager’s trip to rural France (tomorrow yikes!) a friend from the Irish countryside said
“Well of course in the countryside, all teenagers do is have sex. There is nothing else to do. When I came to London I met people that didn’t get round to having sex until they were 21, they were so busy”.
That evening I asked my daughter:”Are you going to have sex in France?”
Spluttering her tea she said:”NO!”
“In fact I’m so sick of hearing about sex. That’s all they talk about at school. The more they talk about it, the less I want to do it. One girl writes ‘I love sex’ all over her pencil case and her exercise books. It’s pathetic. I know for a fact that she’s only had sex once. And she didn’t even like it. But she keeps making out like she loves it. To be popular.”
“Hands up who’s a virgin!”
