Despite years of half-assed public school sex education, when I became sexually active in my teens, I was still very much in the dark about what can and can't get you pregnant. Even though I had not yet had sex, I spent my sophomore year of high school immersed in regular pregnancy scares that occurred every time I saw my boyfriend's penis, engaged in a particularly vigorous dry humping session, or simply caught a re-run of Kirsten Dunst's made-for-TV movie 15 And Pregnant. I knew that sperm had to make contact with an egg in order for me to become pregnant, but I didn't understand that sperm generally had to be shot out of the penis into the vagina in order to cause such trouble. Instead, I thought of sperm as more like the ozone layer — something that I couldn't see, but which was everywhere all the time, just waiting to do something major that would impact my life. Of course, today — after many years of learning, loving, and dry humping — I know that in order to get pregnant, you generally have to have unprotected heterosexual intercourse , or at the very least, insert semen into a vagina via some other means fingers, sex toys, a rogue turkey baster.
