Second interview with Lucinda, 16-17, Asian/Indian Sub-continent, working class, no religion. Women, Risk and AIDS Project, London, 1990. Anonymised version. (Ref: LJH18)
Anonymised transcript of a follow up interview with Lucinda, who has been enjoying her time at college training in travel-based work and working part-time in a fashion boutique. She has been in and out of a few relationships since her original interview, where some have been more exciting for her than others - she had been faking her orgasms with one sexual partner so as not to upset him. Her parents don't seem to be any the wiser to what she gets up to, and are planning on an arranged marriage for her in a few years. Lucinda is quite happy to have an arranged marriage if that's what her parents would like for her, but has enjoyed experimenting with her sexuality and having fun with her friends while she's had the chance.
