Original transcript of interview with Donna, who is training to be a nursery nurse. She went to a Church of England secondary school which offered a very basic and biological sex education - she would have liked more on the emotional aspects of sex. Donna opens up about her first sexual experience at age 15, which she thinks she was too young for and made her feel quite vulnerable. She has some interesting discussion on contraception, risk and responsibility - she is using the contraceptive cap at the moment and had been terrified of AIDS. Donna thinks there is societal pressure, among her peer group at least, to pretend to enjoy sex. This seems different to other young women's experiences, where only male pleasure is presumed. She would like to have children in the future, but isn't too keen on the idea of marriage.
