by Diane KirseDo you remember when you first read “Our Bodies, Ourselves”? Tell us your story!
I am 56 years old. When I was growing up my mother, who was a widow, never ever discussed sex or anything related to sex with me. I did get help however from the first edition of “Our Bodies, Our Selves.” It was a groundbreaking book for its time and I have tried and tried but cannot find my first copy, which I kept for years. Just know that your work was wonderful for young women then and now. Keep up the good work.
In this series, readers tell their stories about their experiences with the book and its impact on their lives. You can view more stories and submit your own.
