Original transcript of an interview with Angela, who works in a hospital. Her sex education at her Church of England school was very limited and biological, but her mum was very open about it and she learnt about contraceptive methods through the media. They also had some interesting moral and philosophical debates about sexuality in Religious Studies lessons. Angela doesn't like to call herself a Christian, due to its many different tenets, and tries to live by her family's values instead - she does have some homophobic views, though, that she seems quite confused about. She hasn't had any sexual relationships yet and is waiting until she feels mature enough to manage the emotional aspects of one. She thinks she will use condoms in the future, as she is worried about the health risks related to the pill - she is more worried about pregnancy than AIDS at the moment. Angela has some interesting thoughts on race and conflicting norms at school and at home. She would like children at some point, but not until she has seen some more of the world.
