Lila, 17, is far wiser than her years. She wants “to show people who have been in less than perfect relationships—or who have struggled with any issue covered by Sex, Etc.—that they are not alone.” She looks forward to writing about relationships and tackling difficult topics, like rape. Lila lives in a quaint town, but there’s nothing quaint about her, sporting twenty-three body piercings and a key chain complete with mace. Her affable nature and infectious laughter make Lila a lovely addition to the Sex, Etc. staff.
