You were born into a generation that will find much intensity in relationships in general, and sex in particular. For the first time in history, with the outbreak of the AIDS epidemic, sex can kill. This has been drilled into you since your early childhood, and forces you to take romantic relationships and sexual relations much more seriously than any generation before you ever did.
For you and your peers, there are no casual relationships! In this way, sex becomes a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it can be deadly if you are not careful in protecting yourself in every sexual encounter. On the other hand, sex can be the road to the profound intimacy that you seek at a very basic level. Wield your sword carefully and it can bring you great reward.
