Dear Internet, can you save us from high school Sex Ed?

I learnt some incredible things in high school Sex Ed.

One was that a woman’s hymen is structured like the seal on a Ricoffy tin: that once she has sex, her body is open for business and will never be the same again. (I remember the sneaking suspicion that once I “broke my seal”, my ovaries would somehow begin to grow stale).

What I didn’t consider before, however, is how psychology can be used to explain our actions and interactions on social networking sites.
