Diane's parents were away for the weekend. The two had been dating for five whole weeks and they were ready.
So on Saturday night, Jose showed up, with no condom in his pocket, but with an idea of what was going to happen. And it did.
At age 17, Diane and Jose both lost their virginity. A few days later, they broke up. Diane's mom found out what went down and laid down the law -- no more Jose. He was crushed.
"I thought sex would make our relationship stronger," says Jose, now 19 and a whole lot smarter. "But it didn't work out that way. I really regret it."
