1999 was a big year for me. I turned 14, was about to graduate the 8th grade, and snuck into my first R-rated movie: Cruel Intentions.

Prior to seeing this film, I didn't know much about sex. I was, in the words of Kathryn (played by the incomparable Sarah Michelle Geller), "a fucking idiot," just like Cecile.

:(

In my defense, I went to Catholic school, and the closest thing to a sex talk my parents ever gave me was saying, "wait till marriage." I had no clue what I was missing... But I think this was the only sex talk I ever needed, actually.

14. While this song plays in the background.
