Original transcript of interview with Erin, who is training as a painter and decorator. Erin talks about how her father's infidelity has impacted her, and the ways in which it pushed her to take her sex education into her own hands through reading books on the subject. She hasn't had any sexual relationships yet, though she aims to use the pill as well as condoms when she does - she would like to wait until she is in a secure relationship. Her and her friends talk about AIDS and risk, but she doesn't think her male peers are that worried about contracting anything. She offers a lot of conversation around gender norms, risk and responsibility.
