Ron is a 2009 graduate of Thunder Ridge High School. and is currently a freshman at UC LA. During his senior year at Regis, he becomes involved with Amy, a junior at Cherry Creek. By the end of the year, Ron thinks he loves Amy, but Amy is unsure. They do some physical exploration (mostly kissing) but Amy says she isn’t ready to have sex. Ron respects her wishes. Over the summer, Ron and Amy realize a long distance relationship is going to be difficult to maintain, so they agree they should both be free to date other people and see how they feel when Ron comes home at Thanksgiving.
When Ron arrives at UCLA, he can’t believe the California lifestyle, the parties, the number of incredibly hot women who seem to want to have sex. While at Regis, Ron was lukewarm about Catholicism and thought what it says about premarital sex is way out of date. After all sex is natural and should be fun, or so say most of his buddies who constantly ask him if he’s gotten Amy into the sack yet. So, he decides that if these more progressive California women want him, he’ll have “safe sex.” In the first six weeks, he “hooks up with” and has one-night stands with three different women he meets at parties. He also goes to one beach party where he persuades a girl to perform oral sex on him. She asks him to reciprocate but he refuses because he doesn’t know what to do. She gets pissed and throws a beer in his face. After each encounter, it is clear that no further dating, or contacts will be made with his partners. It was just for fun.
Whoever made the statement, "Women are from Venus, Men are from Mars," clearly knew what he was talking about. Males and females are taught differently from the beginning of their lives, which result in them feeling different about sex and love. Men are commended for their strong attitude and aggressiveness towards sex. When it comes to the subject of sex, females are taught to be discreet and ...
He then meets Karen from Vermont who seems more interested in him intellectually and emotionally than the other girls. After dating for a couple of weeks, they have protected sex. Karen is a virgin. Ron doesn’t tell Karen about the one-night stands or the girl at the beach because she doesn’t ask. He believes that with sex it’s a “don’t ask, don’t tell” with regard to past conduct.
Meanwhile, Ron starts to get phone calls and texts from Amy telling him how much she misses him. She says that she’s been out on a few dates but she can’t stop thinking about Ron and how much he means to her. They exchange numerous phone calls and texts. He decides he really does love Amy; however, he also is sure that he is falling in love with Karen. He goes home for Thanksgiving and after reuniting with Amy is sure they are in love. Amy asks about his dating experience at UCLA and he says he has dated other women but does not specifically tell her about the three one-night stands, the beach girl and Karen. Over Thanksgiving, Ron and Amy resume sexual exploration but do not have sex.
Ron goes back to UCLA where Karen is really happy to see him. In fact, as soon as they get back to the dorm, she tells him she loves him and they have sex. He says nothing about Amy and continues to date and have sex with Karen for the next three weeks.
When Ron comes home for Christmas, Amy is now sure she wants to have sex with Ron. She doesn’t ask Ron about whether he has had sex or is having sex with anyone so Ron says nothing. Over the Christmas break, Ron and Amy have protected sex numerous times.
When Ron returns to UCLA he is really confused with what to do about Karen. Further, he starts to worry that maybe, just maybe, he forgot to use a condom in the middle of the night with one of the one-night stands because they were both pretty drunk. In fact, the more he thinks about it, the more he is sure he didn’t. He remembers that the girl in question was very experienced sexually and boasted about all her conquests. He has no idea what her name was and hasn’t seen her since. He starts to panic about whether or not he has an STD or AIDS. Karen senses something is wrong and Ron finally tells her about the one-night stands and Amy. Karen is furious and demands that Ron get tested and says that if their relationship is to continue, he has to drop Amy. Ron gets tested, and the marker for genital herpes comes up positive, although he’s had no symptoms. He decides that he really loves Amy and that Karen has to go. Karen is totally pissed off about Amy, the STD result and says that Ron is an untrustworthy piece of male scum, tells him to get lost and slams the door in his face.
Love has many different meanings to different people. For a five-year old, girl, love is marrying her daddy when she grows up. For a ten-year old child love may represent those feelings he or she has for their best friend. However, a teenager passing by their crush in the hallways and having sudden butterflies in their stomach, could also be a description of love. It doesn? t matter how you look ...
Ron is upset about losing Karen, but he is even more worried about losing Amy. He feels that he misled Amy at Christmas by not telling her about the other women and sex. He decides that their love is strong enough and needs to be based on honesty so he calls and tells Amy the whole truth. Amy goes ballistic and says she assumed that Ron loved her enough to tell her the whole truth before she had sex with him. Ron says she only asked about dating and Amy says that is self-serving crap; that Ron should have disclosed what he was doing before becoming more intimate with her. Ron knows in his heart that she’s right. She starts crying saying that she’s been having some weird symptoms and is now worried she has herpes. She says Ron can’t be trusted and she doesn’t want to see or talk with him again.
Ron is really depressed having lost both women and knowing the potential herpes problems. Meanwhile, he runs into the girl who he believes he forgot to use a condom with. She tells him that as result of their one night stand she got pregnant, but “not to worry” she had an abortion. When Ron expresses dismay, she says: “Hey, what are you worried about? You wanted to have sex. I wanted to have sex. So, we weren’t careful. No big deal, that’s why we have abortion.” He asks her: “Did you know you had genital herpes?” She says: “Yes.” Ron gets furious and says: “Well why didn’t you tell me? I would have used a condom.” She says: “That’s BS. We were both drunk and no way were you going to use a condom. In fact, I distinctly remember saying you had forgotten them in your dorm room. Get lost.”
For many decades, women in Australia have been subject to inequality and unfairness in a wide range of areas in employment. They have been discriminated based on gender, marital status, pregnancy and family responsibility. As well as this, many women have faced the most common form of discrimination based on sex - sexual harassment. In the past years, however, the legal system of Australia has ...
Now Ron is both depressed and feeling extremely guilty. His friends say “don’t worry, there’s lots more women out there. Party on dude.” Their advice is to forget it, have as much sex as possible, be sure to use a condom and not worry about anything deeper. After all, Ron is only 19 and it’s necessary to “experience life to the fullest in order to know yourself.” Part of Ron thinks they’re right but he has this nagging feeling that something is really wrong here.
