Jason:              Must be what, a couple of months now?


Nancy:             Actually two weeks Jason, but yes, I enjoy being with you.


Jason:              Yes, it’s been a good time, we seem to get along great.


Nancy:             Yes, thanks for taking me to the car show Jason, I really enjoyed that. . .  But I wish you would let me pay for my ticket, you don’t have to pay for me.


Jason, arm around Nancy’s shoulder:           
No problem at all sweetheart, I like to look after my woman. You can pay me back by just being sweet.


Nancy, moves away, changing subject:          
How do you think you did on the math test Jason, some really tough questions.


Jason:              Schools out for the day Nancy, time to have other things on our minds.


Nancy:             Other things?


Jason, arm around:    
Like you said, we have been dating for a couple of months now and . . .


Nancy, avoids: That was you who said the couple of months, and I didn’t know we were actually dating, we are just friends.


Jason, arm around:    
“Just friends” don’t have the kind of feelings we have for each other. I can so clearly see we were made for each other.


Nancy, moves away:  
Jason this seems to be going too far too fast.


lights off on Jason & Nancy who freeze

Bert & Randy come to downstage right, stand


Bert:                Hey Randy! . . So how’s it goin’ between you and Sexy Sadie?


Randy:             Actually Sadie and I went to the opera last night, never done opera before, I was surprised how much I enjoyed it.


Bert:                Never thought of you as an opera kind of guy Randy.


Randy, laughs:           
Me neither Bert! . . . But Sadie went with me to the hockey game last week so it was my turn to go to what she likes.


Bert:                Not sure if any chick would ever get me to the opera, even if it came with full benefits.


Randy:             Full benefits?


Bert:                If a chick doesn’t head for the bed in the second date at the least . . . it’s bye bye birdie. . . . You two have been dating for what, four months . . .


Randy:             Three weeks actually.


Bert:                So how long before you . . . got to know her?


Randy:             “Know her?”


Bert:                Man you are a drag! . . . . How long before you had sex?


Randy:             We haven’t had sex.


Bert:                You what? . . . Sadie is a well packed woman, what’s holding you back?


Randy:             Bert, we are having a great time together, enjoying each other’s company.


Bert:                Chicken! . . . Do you need someone to show you how its done?


Randy:             Why the rush to have sex Bert?


Bert:                Fact is you are on the clock! . . . Chicks expect sex; Sadie will be thinking about dumping you if you don’t produce!


Randy & Bert freeze, Doreen & Janice come to downstage center


Doreen:           I love your new hairdo Janice. Really sexy.


Janice:             It’s quick, doesn’t take a lot of maintenance, works for me. (laughs)
But not sure I would call it sexy.


Doreen:           Now if we can do something about your clothes.


Janice, shock:  What’s wrong with my clothing Doreen?


Doreen:           You are attractive, have the physical assets, but the clothes you wear hide everything guys want to explore.


Janice:             Hold on Doreen, what are you saying?


Doreen:           Start with your jeans . . . Looks like you are trying to use up a surplus of cloth.


Janice:             Pardon?


Doreen:           Guys wanna see your curves, so go search for the tightest jeans you can pull on, and then buy one size smaller.
And that blouse you are wearing . . . .! It’s more like armor than clothing. Guys wanna see cleavage. . . . Remember, the key to a guy’s attention is . . . let him see what he wants to explore.


Janice:             What’s with this explore thing Doreen?


Doreen:           You do want to be popular don’t you Janice?


Janice:             Guess everyone wants to be popular but . . .


Doreen:           Do you want to be another Phyllis Montrose?


Janice:             What is wrong with Phyllis Montrose?


Doreen:           When Phyllis graduated high school last year she was still a Vee!


Janice:             A . . . Vee?


Doreen:           A virgin. No woman wants that.


Janice:             Are you saying you don’t want to be a virgin when we graduate?


Doreen:           Janice, you are an OK person but soooo naive! . . . The ship has sailed on my virginity long ago . . . And I hope for you too Janice.


Doreen & Janice freeze

Chris & Kim move downstage


Chris:              Wow, people sure look on intimacy and sexual purity in different ways, huh?


Kim:                Sure seems like it Chris. And it’s all age groups, all backgrounds, male and female, all seem to struggle with this.


Chris:              Sure do Kim. Think it’s because people don’t talk about sex enough?


Kim:                Or is it that people talk about it too much? . . . Let’s face it, you can’t go on TV, radio or in newspapers and not get people talking about sex.


Chris:              Or go to a movie, even movies for family viewing seem to concentrate on sexual themes.


Chris & Kim move beside Janice & Doreen


Chris:              Interesting how these two girls looked at premarital sex in different ways.


Kim:                Doreen seemed to feel that is was socially unacceptable, that it was kind of a shame to still be a virgin in high school.


Chris:              Do you think Doreen’s views are shared by many teenage girls?


Kim:                From what I read and hear it seems like it is.


Chris & Kim freeze, Janice & Doreen come to life


Doreen, shock: Janice, are you telling me you haven’t had sex, I mean, ever?


Janice:             Never.
