Have you seen the movie? I know, it’s like so, two years ago (2019). I feel like we’re family here, this my 129th post, so it’s time that I talk about cringe worthy cinema that I’m glad I watched (alone) and didn’t know that I needed.
I plan to share another cringe worthy film next Sunday, and if you’re not cringing, (me either 😏) till Mom walks in 😐 #pokerface.
I’m Alice in the film (Natalia Dyer), misunderstood, terrified that I’ll constantly disappoint God, feared that I’ll be punished for exploring my body, wanting a boy to like me – see me. I had questions and instead of getting direct answers, there was silence, shame, confusion and avoidance.
She’s a curious young lady, who wants to please her mates, God, while learning who she is and what she wants. Alice soon realizes, everyone is putting on a front. She wants to know what’s the fuss about, what is sex, what are orgasm, and when will I experience the big O? (Sheesh so pressure) eventually Alice learns that it’s natural to feel how she’s feeling.
Can I just touch myself in peace?
It’s a basic human right.
A brief summary on IMDB states, After an innocent AOL chat turns racy, a Catholic teenager in the early 00s discovers masturbating and struggles her new urges in the face of eternal damnation.
I’ve said enough, I hope the quick synopsis entices you to watch the film. I’d like to hear some feedback. If you’re curious watch the trailer.

However, this is purely entertainment, not to take the place of Comprehensive Sex Education.
Here’s a Sexual Educator, with over 20 years of experience:

Where to view the film:
My sexual education was a watered down version at school which I can hardly remember and reading books at my home/public library along with trial and error. I remember bashfully picking up the “Sex for Dummies” and building the courage to turn the pages. I was curious, creative, a detective and researcher — still am.
It’s the reason studying Psychology, Mental Health, and Sexual Education, that is inclusive and affirming is important to me.
