Tiny (voice over)

I think it is very strange that older men like little girls. They're

perverts is what they is. I like the money, but I don't like them.

Medical Counselor You've been sexually active since the time that you

were treated?

Tiny What do you mean by that?

Medical Counselor Oh, good question. Have you had sex with anyone since

you were treated in Portland?

Tiny No. Just dates. The first date I turned was about two Thursdays

ago. Then I turned another one on Friday.

Tiny (voice over)

Some dates are nice. And some of them, the young ones are really cute,

but I don't want to be interested in them, 'cept for the money, that's

$30 on up and for a lay it would be $40 on up. Most of these

veterinarian 'hos would charge more than us little kids do.

Tiny Isn't it after every two weeks you can get pregnant, after your

period, every two weeks?

Medical Counselor You can get pregnant any time during your cycle. A

person can even get pregnant when she's having her period. It's not as


Tiny I pulled a date and didn't use a rubber, because he said he didn't

use them.

Medical Counselor How often do you usually have your periods?

Tiny Every three or four weeks.

Medical Counselor And they come pretty regular?

Tiny Well, I just started in August.

Medical Counselor So you'd only had the one in August?

Tiny And the one in September.

Medical Counselor So you've barely begun. Did you ever have periods

before then?

Tiny No.

Medical Counselor You're how old?

Tiny Fourteen.

Medical Counselor And how would you feel about being pregnant?

Tiny I want a baby. But not by a new trick though.

Medical Counselor What's your feeling about being pregnant now, if the

trick is the father?
