Hey all! I did this interesting questionnaire on sexuality yesterday, written by the lovely Laci Green. She is the hostess of Sex+, a web show which airs every Thursday on YouTube that discusses sexuality, relationships and social science topics in a fun, easy and critical matter. I LOVE her and her videos; you should definitely check her out! Here is the link to her channel if you are interested in learning more!
On her blog a few months ago, she posted a questionnaire that explores your own personal sexual history. I loved the one she did, which can be found here. So, I decided I would do it too!
Here it is!

a chapter all about sex and I remember reading and re-
reading it. And showing
it to my friends at sleepovers. LOL!
Were you able to talk about sex with your parents? Not really. My parents
weren’t open about
sex. My mom is much cooler now though. But I never had a
formal “talk”, I just learned from
books. The only talks I did have were my mom
saying “all men are pigs who want one thing”.
