AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Cool church arrived on the campus of my Catholic school halfway through year twelve, at the height of our school's war on sex. Greater Union Morley had already experienced the first wave of our awkward sexuality in year ten as a fingering epidemic swept the cinemas. Gangly teenage boys steered their dates to the darkest corners of the cinema, inching their hand ever closer to girls' groins as Sandra Bullock looked down. The school did its best to discourage such activity, banning hugging, kissing and hand-holding in an effort to stamp out the blossoming teenage romances.'  (Publication abstract)
