I started high school in Oklahoma, back in the early 80s. I only went steady with a couple of boys, but spent the requisite amount of time in the back seat of their cars. No one talked about sex back then and "safe sex" only meant escaping pregnancy. Sexually transmitted diseases abounded in the Bible Belt, but no one dared talk about them. We just kept our Church Camp mouths shut about the realities of sex, and practiced it when we thought God wasn't watching.
