Tonight at 10pm/ 9pm central MTV will air a new episode of their hit reality television show, 16 & Pregnant.
Briana’s story will primarily be focused on her decision to continue a teen pregnancy and her struggle with life, love and her new daughter. Certainly the focus is on Briana, as it should be - the show is called 16 & Pregnant after all.

how can “labia saturation” not be a good thing?
