Article: Birth Control As A Form of Rebellion

Originally Published in The Huffington Post Women.

I’m working late at the restaurant. Brunch was more brutal than usual and my friend Mark and I are stuck doing paperwork well into the dinner hour. As we count our credit card receipts for the hundredth time, my cellphone on the table between us lights up and the alarm goes off. “BIRTH CONTROL!!!” flashes across the screen.

People always underestimate me in that department because I read books and bake pies, but by the time I turned nineteen I was determined to finally come out as a sex goddess.
