Getting tested for chlamydia is easy and painless. Find a health center near you (http://www.plannedparenthood.org/los-angeles/) and GYT today!
One of Amy Schumer’s comedy routines begins with the declaration, “I’m a little sluttier than the average bear. I really am.”
Degrees of sluttiness may be hard to define, but Schumer does talk frankly about many subjects — including sex — that can be uncomfortable for people, both in her stand-up act and on her Comedy Central series, Inside Amy Schumer, now in its second season.
When Amy spoke with Terry Gross last year, she revealed why she’s so at ease talking about sex:
"I have a joke where I say, ‘Oh, I’m going to bring [my mom] to a soccer game because I want to show her what boundaries look like.’ I just grew up in a house where things weren’t that taboo to talk about. And my mom, when she was teaching us to say our different body parts, taught me how to say ‘vagina’ the same that she taught me how to say ‘ear.’I think she wanted us to be able to tell her if we were ever molested without being embarrassed — and so there wasn’t this sense of shame. And I was running around naked to an age that probably wasn’t appropriate and just never was made to feel embarrassed or shamed because of my body or think anything was wrong with me, probably to a fault."
Where would be without our amazing volunteers?!
Fun fact: Almost 100 years ago, Planned Parenthood began as an all-volunteer organization. We’re so grateful for the compassionate and generous people who support and protect the vital services our health centers provide every day. We are constantly impressed by their dedication, passion, and energy. Thank you, volunteers, for helping to make our work possible.
