  • I did! I have a copy from 1995 when they did a spread on teen abstinence and featured 4 boys from my youth group. I can bring it out now as blackmail. Some of the boys waited for marriage. Others, not so much.

  • Do you remember when "Sassy" magazine came out? People went nuts because they dared talk to young girls about getting their period! LOL  I don't even know if they still make it.

  • Boy, I'm old. I remember when "YM" was titled "Young Miss" and was the same size as Reader's Digest. I also remember that I learned about menstruation from that magazine, although I pronounced it "menustration." I was about 6 or 7.

    I also vageuly remember a feature they ran titled, "Boy, was my face RED!"

    I remember when they changed from Young Miss to YM and I was convinced they were going to turn it into another 16 or Teen Bop instead of being more Seventeenish.
