  • 31 now, gave birth at 16, took two sex ed classes, one in Middle school and one in High School. Was also raised Mormon, if that isn't sex ed I don't know what is (apparently I didn't care that I would spend eternity in hell for premarital sex?) Abstinence was promoted but I also knew where to get free condoms, they didn't really promote the idea that condoms are not good protection since they can break and they do break and I have TWO kids to prove it. I have had 4 pregnancies and 4 healthy, beautiful, wonderful and amazing children:)
