We’re delving into the features and ephemera regarding TEEN LIFE in the March 1988 issue!
Karen Catchpole dares to be frank on the matter of “Losing Your Virginity” (and parents/right-wing wackos were PISSED). Catherine Gysin goes undercover at the Miss South Carolina USA pageant and learns secret uses for Vaseline. The whole staff collaborates on a “How To Flirt” guide…of sorts. In the spec piece that got her the job at Sassy, Christina Kelly addresses how to handle “Talk Behind Your Back.” Catherine speaks to the survivors of three young people who died by suicide. Christopher Newbound kicks off the fiction section with “My Name Is Daniel.”
Then it’s on to the departments: On The Road to Miami; What He Said about why guys dumped their girlfriends; and a real mixed bag of Help. (What to do when Mom kisses Boyfriend is just one of many questions WE have for that possibly fake letter writer.)
Stretch out on the shag rug and turn down George Michael on the radio: it’s time to Listen To Sassy!
