Original transcript of interview with Cathy, who talks a lot about the dynamics between her and her older brother and the impact this has had on her dating life and Friendship. Cathy is in a stable relationship at the moment with someone she met in a nightclub. Sex education was through her brother and his friends, which she found a bit frightening, school and her mum - her parents were quite open and had lots of homosexual friends, so she's very aware of the impact that AIDS has had on the gay community. Contraception-wise, Cathy and her partner use condoms, though she was on the pill in the past - it made sense while in a serious relationship, and she thinks she will go back on it to help with her painful periods. She talks a lot about her Friendship and social life, and offers a very interesting insight into the daily goings on of some middle class teenagers and their family lives.
