Growing Up

"Somebody had a little red book [at Teachers College] all about sex, and I can remember learning lots of things from that. I'd never seen a book on sex before,

my parents had never talked to me about anything, about sex and this little red book was of great interest to everybody"

Doesn't remember talking about it at school.
