Robot asked A.J. Lape:

Hi, A.J.! So I was thinking the other day about Darcy and why it is that she's so naive about sex and the like. I get that she went through puberty and whatever without her mum, but like...the internet tho'. Google, Genius.

A.J. Lape Hey, Robot!!! So nice to hear from you and a very good question. Darcy gets the "mechanics of it." Remember, she has romance novels she hides under her mattress *wink, wink*. However, Murphy has never given her the "birds and the bees" talk, where it is totally broken down, this is what it looks like, this is what you feel like, etcetera. Up until Dylan, everything in the opposite sex department has been very clinical. Like a lot of girls, she's not going to fully understand it until she actually participates in it. She's a natural tomboy. She never really thought anyone was cute until Liam Woods in Grade A Stupid and that went nowhere. Then she was really taken aback when she started to develop feelings for Dylan who was her best friend. The lines between them have always been blurred. And now? Now, they are REALLY BLURRED. And yeah, Murphy has filters on their home computer and as far as her googling in her spare time? She's too busy googling crap that would put her on the FBI's Most Wanted List.
