60 months of higher education + 23 years experience = what i know for sure

tunnel

what do
i know
for sure…

i hate
talking to
teenagers
about sex!
i hate it!

hate it!
masturbation,
penetration,
vaginal irritation,
anal stimulation?
do you know
where your anus
hole is?

haphazard
demonstrations.
isn’t it here?
nononononononononoNO!

how come condoms?
because AIDS kills.
but I’m a lesbian.
dear God save me.

bacteria infections are
universal plagues
pregnancy scares aren’t
the only reason your
granma told you to beware!

i
hate
talking
to teenagers
about
sex!

i don’t need
these lessons
i’m gay.
boys can’t
get pregnant
anyway!

if i’ve said it
once i’ve repeated it
one thousand times
protecting yourself
isn’t just about avoiding
a baby bump!

hygienic care is
a must. consent
is consent there is
no fine line.
if it’s not yes,
it’s no. period.
end of the story.
no if, no buts!
pull out if you must!

i
hate
talking
to
teens
about
sex!

parents won’t.
grandparents don’t.

it makes my heart ache.
internet porn is no
classroom for kids to
learn. about the
intricate intimacy that
is sex. how will they
know where their boundaries
lie when dallas doing
debbie is their primary
guide?

i hate it but
i love them.
so down the
rabbit hole
i go, day in
day out. positive
sexuality the end
game of choice. ultimately
this is about helping teens
use their very
own voice.

    Your words brought us to the real world, Wanda, and showed us something we might never have seen (or even thought about). Poetry makes the reader think. Thank you! xoA
