Larry Clark - Kids (1995)

In a film calculated to cause scandal, a day in the life of a group of young, amoral teenagers is picked apart in relentless and graphic detail. Opening to the amplified sound of passionate kissing, we find Telly (Leo Fitzpatrick) locked in embrace with a barely pubescent girl (Sarah Henderson). With soothing words he massages her ego and fears, telling her how much he cares for her and how she's the only one. Resolving her major worry, which is that she doesn't want a baby, Telly unclasps her bra and moves lower. Of course, despite his promises, it hurts like hell when he snatches away her virginity with his brutal thrusts. When the deed is done, Telly races away outside to his friend Casper (Justin Pierce) and describes in graphic detail his latest conquest, from his self-proclaimed position of "virgin surgeon". For Telly, virgins are perfect; they're clean, receptive, reputation-boosting and, importantly, free from STDs. Casper can only agree as they make their way to a friends house, where the duo can score some food and drugs, in their own cursing and shop-lifting fashion.
There is one outstanding question though - given that Telly finds that he has AIDS, would he change his behaviour? As Telly says - "Fucking is all I have. Take that away and I've got nothing". I guess not then
