The police who patrol there are not a morality brigade but they behave like one. Around me, the boys mapped out a cruel geography. They just show up like sheep to apply a law, or rather to take advantage of the profits. An innocent and entirely natural flirtation between two teenagers. It has also become a financial windfall for all those who carry out the dozens of hymen restorations that happen every day and for the labs selling false hymens, designed to bleed on the first day of sexual intercourse. The policemen walked up to our car. During my final year at school, I was in a car flirting with a boy. Topics Society books The Observer.
