Sex did not gently enter my life. It came wrath of God screaming. Condemning me to hell for my curiosity. It started with a blue pamphlet left by my bedside that promised to answer my questions about sex, which for every question was SIN!
Then there was my father’s sex talk with me which in its entirety was, “If you play with yourself you’ll be damned to hell.” I didn’t have the heart to tell him it was too late. Next Sunday I confessed to the priest. He laughed and told me not to worry about it. Scarred for life.
