I, too, have to teach certain subjects in my school be- cause of the exam system. All boys and girls today experience the pressurizing of schools; they all know that their future depends on getting a college degree. One of my old pupils is now 19.

Sex shouldn't be handled by pressure, either for or against. Sex is highly personal; no individual should dictate to another sexual timing or sexual response. A girl of 20 said to her mother: "In my set, every girl seems to sleep with a fellow; the girls tease me because I don't want to. " Here we have group pressure-a sad situation.

He must be attracted to the companion be- cause from him he gets something that he cannot get at home. But why worry so much about lying and swaggering? Most folks, old and young, do their bit of both even when they aren't politicians and sales agents.
