I wish my mom had told me that I didn’t have to put out to find love. It seems like such a simple concept now but since I grew up with the whole “abstinence till marriage” notion I was unprepared for what it’d be like if I didn’t wait. I also wish I’d been told you can get an STI from oral sex. Luckily I never had to find that out the hard way, but there were so many unnecessary risks just because I didn’t know.
