"I'm in complete denial about how many I've slept with" "Like I won't believe my friends when they bring up people I've hooked up with. I think I force some people out of my memory, and it's not a conscious decision. I can't be the only one?" Anonymous

"When my boyfriend and I first started going out he asked me how many sex partners I had been with." I lied and told him a lower number just because I didn't want him to think any less of me." Anonymous

"As a child i would secretly cross dress by wearing my sisters panties and try on makeup. i have felt like this for a long time." "like a female trapped in a man's body and as long as I can remember people have been saying that I sorta have a feminine figure and face. My face is narrow and my voice has a high pitch. In addition to that I have always admired the elegance and poise of the female body and have always wished that I have been born a girl. My fear is coming out I live in a conservative Christian town and family. I was pretty much a social reject in high school and I have bad social anxiety and I'm afraid of negative judgement.” Anonymous, US.

"Straight, gay, bi. What am I? Everything is not black or white. I am a girl who is sexually attracted to men, which I have been since a very young age, who also has sex with girls some times."  "There has been multiple girls. In fact the first sexual experience I ever had was with a girl, in the water. One of the last experiences was also with a girl, also in water funnily enough. There has been other girls too. Yet I am heterosexual and most of my sexual experiences are with men. I am sexually attracted to, and desire men a lot. With girls its a different story. Its fun and sweet, more gentle and I am charge in a way. Women fascinate me, but I love every thing about masculinity. Preferably men who have developed their feminine sides as well, a healthy balance. Myself I am a sensual feminine girl with some masculine traits in my character and sexual drive. We are all different and every version is OK, every version is beautiful. I like a fine balance between active and passive, masculine and feminine, dominant and submissive. I am sexually confident and I know what I want. I guess this is why I have, and do still explore with girls and femininity. I am not afraid of it. When I was a teenager I was confused and not sure what this meant, that I sometimes had sex with girls. I used to wish I was bisexual - as I would then have more choices in life and in love! But my experiences have showed me that I am not. I have never fallen for or sexually craved a girl, it has just happened naturally. Ultimately I am glad I have been brave and pursued my natural desires and explored with my sexuality. It has made me sure of who I am, learning by doing. I encourage young people to be brave and follow their desires without being ashamed. Its OK to not know, its OK no matter what and who you like. You like boys? Explore! You like girls? Explore! You like boys but are curious about girls? Explore! You like girls but are curious about boys? Explore. Sex is absolutely wonderful and it is healthy to let your desires free. Stay safe and smart and have fun." Wildflower, 26, Norway

“The first time I had a boyfriend I was 17, and I was very shy. I had no idea about anything, and I’d never even kissed a guy."  "The first kiss was very awkward cause I didn’t know what to do or how to react to it. I had to ask the guy to guide me though it. Me and him was a thing for about two years, but in that time we never went passed third base, and at that point I’d never see a penis or a condom, besides in biology class.”  Radhika, 29, India

"It was the 17h of May, Norway’s constitutional day, a day that is always about parties and having fun. I’m dancing to Frank Sinatra’s “I did it my way’ with a super hot guy in a strange apartment I had never been before. " I don’t really remember minute by minute what went down, I only have fragments of what happened while I was there: A quick stop in the shower and the water was everywhere, we were naked, he had strong arms… and the most embarrassing thing: at one point I was sitting on his face. You don’t just sit on a stranger’s face… straight up porn right there. A couple of hours more go by and I wake up, and things are beginning to become clear to me. I freak out! Jump out of bed, grab my stuff and run out of the apartment straight into the elevator where I franticly get dressed. That I left a naked guy like that is something I’ve tried to forget. And the facesitting too, ugh. Smiling I walk home wearing my national costume, the day after the big celebration, just thankful that I’ve managed to escape what I considered to be a totally unreal situation – I’ve never been that “crazy”. My hair was everywhere and I had left most of my makeup as stains on his pillow along with my innocence."  Anonymous, Norway.

"We have a strange hookup culture in Norway, we don't really date, it's more like you decide if you like someone after you've hooked up by going out to breakfast together." "It's sort of backwards I guess. So, I've made some pretty bad decisions and hooked up with men I shouldn't have, that I didn't care about and who didn't care about me either. I don't really regret anything, but there are things I wouldn't do again if I had a do over. I guess my generation of women just do whatever they want"  Mille, 26, Norwegian

"I thought I was coming down with a cold or that I'd become fucking gluten allergic or something." "I was feeling really sick and then I thought that I was getting my period cause it was approaching that time of the month. The time never came. I was single and on the pill so I thought I was safe, but it turns out I'm one of the 2%. So what I got was an appointment at a doctors office to take care of it." Helen, 24, Sweden Editors note: The 2% is referencing the chances to get pregnant while on the pill. The pill is not a 100% secure in preventing pregnancy.

"I came out when I was 22 or 23 to my friends. If I could I'd go back in time I would go back and tell my parents too. "We still haven't had the conversation, but I think they know. I'm really close to them, but there is a barrier there because I can't talk to them about this part of my life. I would never go back to change myself, I'm happy being gay and I don't want to be straight".  Krit, 27, Thailand
