1. I’ve recently seen this film titled KIDS which was released in 1995. The film is about this guy named Telly who only wants to have sex with virgin because through that he thinks he can’t get at STD’s. In another scene of girls, they talk about sex and who they have done it with and how they should get tested for any STD’s. When they go, Ruby finds out that she is fine even though she has had sex with multiple guys unprotected. But Jenny finds out that she is HIV positive even though she’s only had sex once. Throughout the film, Jenny tries to find Telly, while he tries to sleep with other virgins. In the film, not only is sex the name topic, but so are drugs. The film shows these kids smoking weed and shoplifting alcohol.
After watching this movie, I was not as shocked because adolescents are like that now and the reason it’s like this today is because drugs and sex within adolescents started back then. The film showed kids that were around 16-17. But in today’s society the children are younger.
2. Recently, while looking for something that resembles what I want to do for my senior project, I came across this author, Antonya Nelson. She is known to write short stories and I read one of them and it was about sex, it talked about how the girl was feeling and it went in depth throughout the conversation between the mother and daughter. This book is called Female Troubles: Stories. The excerpt that I read was called “Stitches” and a link to that is right here –
