And there'll be big, comfortable chairs and sofas where we can sit down and have a drink. We won't even have to climb into coats or boots and sit on hard bleacher seats. We'll watch the game on a colored television set in comfort." "Wanda! You have just described your own home!" "I knew you wouldn't understand. Are you coming?" "A car just ran over my foot," I grimaced. "Did anyone ever tell you you're a complainer?" D D 684-1313 JUST EAST OF PALM BEACH MALL BEHIND FORUM III COMPLEX "One of these days," Wanda said softly, her eyes fixed vacantly, "we're going to go to a football game in a camper. We'll have our own stove where we can cook steaks and a refrigerator where we can Okay, you all know how I feel about camping. A Motel 6 is about as primitive as I want to get. I just cannot understand people who are turned on by swishing their silverware in a mesh bag through a stream where a dog just relieved himself. That's why it came as a bit of a surprise when Wanda called last week, and said, "Before the football game next Saturday, we're going to have a tailgate buffet." "How far is the tailgate buffet from my all-electric kitchen?" "Don't start that again," she said. "You have to be the most boring, unimaginative person I know. Don't you ever like to try anything different? We'll pack a lunch, allow ourselves an hour or two before the game and have a fun time eating off the tailgate of the station wagon." "You're right as usual," I told Wanda later. "This is fun. I don't think I've had so much fun since I slid down the deck of the Titanic without spilling a drop of my iced tea." "Well, if you're not having a good time," snapped Wanda, "it's your fault . . . crouching back there behind the spare tire. Why don't you stand around the tailgate like the rest of us?" "I'm cold! Besides, the sandwich is dry." "You're eating your glove." I crawled out of the car and planted my feet firmly in the fresh tar, not daring to believe what I saw. The parking lot was an orgy of campers, folding tables and tailgates. The entire football field was under siege. One lighted match and the entire place was set to blow. "Isn't this great?" Wanda chirped. "You know, even the food tastes different out in the air." "You're right," I said. "This doughnut tastes like it flunked its emissions test." turdfoss Rurdines Wlofido. v Doctors and Schools Can Offer Sex Data r Planned ' J Parenthood Answers Your Questions r I J Q Since parents are the primary guides for their children as they grow up, where can parents go for help when they really want to do a good job on sex education but feel both a lack of insight and a good deal of fear, too? A You're right that parents are the primary guides for their children. You also are right that the intent is there to do a good job along with fear in attempting it. Your local physician may have resource materials for you to read through. And, since sex education is being taught through Family Life Education in some of the public schools, the Health Specialists' Office at the School Board offices may have materials. Planned Parenthood also can provide you with a list of books for parents' reading. You have come a long way in just asking for support. THE TOTAL BEAUTY SALON sperm. Because the uterus has been preparing for possible pregnancy, its lining has become spongy and full of extra blood and other tissue to nourish a developing embryo. If "fertilization" (sperm meeting egg) does not take place, the lining is not needed and is pushed out of the uterus. This is why it is considered such a normal and natural thing. Q It seems the sexual side of a relationship is always built up into the most important part. What if you try sex and don't like it? A Sexual experiences are not always satisfactory, so don't worry there's nothing wrong with you. Perhaps the relationship wasn't the right one, or maybe you just weren't ready for sex. Chances are that future sexual experiences when the circumstances are right will be enjoyable and fulfilling.

It would seem there's enough promiscuity without promoting it. A There is no evidence to support the view that telling young persons the "facts of life" increases promiscuity. As in all other areas of life, factual information helps children and adults make wise decisions. Without the facts, it is easy to make mistakes and get into trouble. Attitudes about sexuality learned at home are helpful when children and youth face decisions about their own behavior. Curiosity can lead to sexual experimenting. Teaching children facts and helping them develop healthy attitudes will not prevent all the trouble. But it can help.
