I officially lost my virginity at fourteen with Rod Bender who was sixteen. It was in the back row of the drive-in. The windows were rolled up and it was hot. I made him shut the car off to turn off the heater. I was trying to hear the movie because it was one I wanted badly to see. He didn't really know what to do with his hands so I placed one on my breast and one on my bush and waited.

When we were done, he lit a cigarette and stared up at the screen while I put my bra and sweater back on. He asked me why I didn't bleed.
