Growing up in a strict Catholic household, I was told sex was bad and it hurts. My mind wandered as my tall father hovered over me like a bad star and recited those words. I was only 15, but going on 30, according to him.
Listening to love songs and watching soap operas, I longed for a love that would last and that wouldn't hurt.
My dad went to culture shock when I had to take birth control for my manly hairs on my body.
The pope had banned birth control from Catholics in the 70s, from which I wondered am I really killing a baby every time I take it or am I just over analyzing what I was taught. It also makes me wonder what a single, Catholic girl is to about love and the whole sex question. Is it okay to have love and sex? I pray to God and hope I find an answer.
