Different parent talk to their kids about sex and sexuality

How did your parents describe sex to you? Read Sex talks from different parent

As a child, did your parent ever have a sex talk with you? Sometimes, having those sex talks can be challenging as parents because they don’t know where to start from. Some other parent are so Godly that the word, sex, is a big word in their mouth. However, it is necessary to have a conversation with children about such since sexual things are no more done in private places like it was. Read as several people share their parent to child sex talk.

1. The COOL Parent: “My mom told me that sex was cool, I should keep my fingernails short so I can finger women without causing them discomfort, and that I needed to always keep my own condoms because if I used a woman’s condoms she would poke hols in it to make a baby.
We also had a talk at some point when I was around 1st or 2nd grade when my cousins and I got caught showing our junk to each other. But that was more her making fun of me for not knowing where the penis goes during sex (I was being a smart ass about it, I guess).”

2. The RELIGIOUS Parent: “i hail from a catholic family. no sex talk, nothing, although i DID see a sex-ed video in 5th grade once. the video recommended that girls look at themselves in the mirror and maybe even slide one clean finger up the vag to feel different parts. i tried it and it was SO painful. i told my mom and she said that it was because i wasn’t married yet. now, almost 25, i’ve lived with my boyfriend for a year and we haven’t been able to have sex. i only recently found out that it’s because i have a nerve/pain disorder. would’ve been nice to have been able to look into that earlier…”

3. The BLUNT but EASY-GOING mother: “I got a very real, very STD focused sex talk. My mom is, blunt to say the least and has the best sense of humor. I was fourteen and as all parents know, becoming more and more interested in boys. She’s a school nurse, and wasn’t a stranger to giving sex ed talks (before abstinence only ran rampant) so she sat me down and asked if I knew what sex was. I said yes. She then asked me if I knew what herpes was. I really didnt, so she showed me a picture of a herpes sore (no genitals just the sore) and explained how they were transmitted. She went through every STI and then had a picture of my nephew who was a month old then and was screaming his head off. She said “now, this. Are you ready for this? Because this doesn’t go away with a shot of penicillin and a good nights sleep.” And that was that. When I did become sexually active a few years later I asked for BC (Birth control) openly and got it. I went to the free clinic and got condoms regularly, and once when the condom broke, I felt comfortable enough to tell her and she helped me get plan B (birth control). I survived high school, college, and my early twenties healthy and baby free because I was taught the consequences of my sexuality were real. Pretty grateful, and now at 28 im finally ready to consider bringing in a child to my life now that I’m through the thick of growing up.”

4. The parent that SHIES AWAY from such talk: “No talk, but I got a book that taught me about heterosexual sex and masturbation and stuff. At some point sex became a topic of casual discussion, in a non-explicit sort of way. It was always assumed that I would start having sex at some point, and I probably started later than my mother thought I would. My dad pretended that I was a virgin until I got pregnant.”
