so... my essay this week has to focus on some aspect of adolescent sexuality in differnt cultures. i'm focussing on how we handle mensturuation, because, frankly, it'll be easy to tackle. this is mostly for girls, though guys are welcome to jump in if they want. how did your family handle your first menstruation? did you get taken out to dinner because you had "become a woman?" did it get ignored? were people embarassed?
i always have anonymous comments turned on, by the way.
