How to Convince Your Teenage Daughter Not to Have Sex (MAMIVERSE)

As a teenager, Mami never spoke to me about sex. In fact, the only time she mentioned the word “vagina” was when I got my first period. And that was only because she wanted to know how my vagina felt after I stuck on an enormous maxi pad to my underwear.

Sex was simply a taboo topic that was to be shushed. However, one thing was instilled—I was to remain a virgin for a long while, if not forever. I learned that lesson at 16, after a boy called to speak with me on the phone. With just one look, Mami scared me into abstinence.

That was then. It was the 90s and while kids may have thought their parents were out of touch, they still mostly obeyed them. There were no celebrity sex tapes. Twitter and texting didn’t exist, which meant no tweeting photos of body parts or sexting. Typing “ILY” into pagers may have been all the rage, but it was impossible to send someone a picture of your sexy undies. Read How to Convince Your Teenage Daughter Not to Have Sex on MAMIVERSE.
