Original transcript of interview with Jill, who is working towards a career in information technology. Most of her sex education came from magazines and chats with friends. Her school didn't teach them about periods until they were around age fifteen, which was much too late - they already knew about them, and one of her peers had already fallen pregnant. Jill describes her first sexual experience as boring, though she had been curious to see what all the fuss was about. She's a bit fed up with boys at the moment, but seems to garner a lot of male attention. She would prefer to use condoms as her main method of contraception in the future, as she believes they are the safest and some of her friends have gained a lot of weight using the pill. Jill is more worried about the risk of pregnancy than AIDS, but would like children in the future, once she has established a career for herself.
