Strange Days

I don't think I came of age at a particularly enlightened moment in terms of sex and sexuality. The impacts of the Reagan era, HIV, and the rise of the religious right were all kind of peaking around that time. My fellow dudes probably had pretty concrete ideas about what made a girl/woman a "slut."

What I don't remember is my peers thinking that simply taking birth control was an expression of sluttitude.
