*laughs herself sick* Oh god, that was awesome and no you are not alone. Jeez, every single thought you described is something that every teen has gone through, and yes, me too. Oi. This is a favorite of mine now.

I thought this was really funny, but sometimes when ending a paragraph you almost force the joke. Other than that, I thought it was very funny and probably very insightful (unfortunately, it will be awhile before I ever know). Btw, thanks for reviewing my poem.

At least the hormones take control over the embarrassment, or we'd never reproduce! Great commentary on teenage awkwardness and society in general. The last two paragraphs brought the humor to a-er- climax, and I loved, "I'm just joking. Honestly."

"(incidentally a friend of mine had to be rushed to hospital after a freak accident on a bouncy castle but this almost never happens)."

Oh, wow. The rest of this was funny, but at that point I just burst out laughing. Although humor aside, this does bring up some very true issues about self-image...

Very well writen. It was clever and honest, a winning combination in my books. Hopefully the "poor sod" isn't too crushed by your remark "is that it?".

I've always enjoyed your work, it's probably the best I've ever read.

The best part of it: it's human. You always are very honest and "real". It's a definate change from some of these writers (no offense to anyone else).

I look forward to reading more in the future.

Maria, dahling, v.funny, certainly brightened up the deadly dull english lesson. you write waay too much about sex though, you should probably do the deed before making comments. unless you already did...ew...linden...or ali? (argh get the horrid thought away from me!)

have you finished your stats coursework yet?

bet you remove this, regards, frankie

::applauds:: I must say, this is possibly the best sex essay I've ever read. No "it's a beautiful act" or "it's disgusting, never do it" bullshit. I like honesty. Humorous but not too raunchy. Perfectly balanced.

Well done *sniggers* Actually I had couple things to add had I wrote this kind of essay, but it's still amusing, and true. Good job on this ;)

Good writing. I'd suggest the best way to avoid the humiliation and weirdness is to only do it with the one person you trust most and whom you plan to spend the rest of your life with. If they are who you think they are, they should appreciate you beyond your awkwardness and embarassement. See? Its the best of both worlds. No weird expectations, you get better and more comfortable with the same person, and hopefully you would both be mature enough at that point not to point and laugh at the others mysterious scars of freckles.
