Like all good nurses, my mother was committed to helping me stay happy, healthy, and out of the hospital. She taught me about the dangers of riding on motorcycles, the risks of eating buffet food that might have been sitting out all day, and most importantly, she taught me about sex and pregnancy.
I remember her saying, “The easiest thing for a woman’s body to do is to become pregnant.” She insisted that I use condoms, and even brought me to the OB-GYN to get birth control when I became sexually active. She implored me to love my body and treat it with the utmost respect.
More recently my mom attended the launch party of Babeland’s new sex guide, Moregasm, and was delighted when she won her own copy of the book during the raffle. After having Claire and Rachel sign it, she blushed and said, “I’m going to give this to my OB-GYN to use as a resource…after I read it cover to cover.”
Happy reading, Mom!
