69. Getting “The Sex Talk” from your parents
Oh yeah. You know, when your parents first talk to you about intercourse?
I could just end this post now but I won’t, even though there isn’t much else to say about this situation. We will make this educational. You hear a lot about the birds and the bees, but what the heck does it mean anyway? Well, they use birds (since they lay eggs) to explain ovulation and other stuff that I don’t want to go into detail about. The bees pretty much explain how pollen gets deposited into flowers.
I’m curious to know how your talk went. I know that some parents just skip that part and let school, friends, or television take care of it (and I understand why! Since giving the talk can probably be as awkward as listening to it).
Did you parents come in all awkwardly into your room and asked if you had a minute to talk, and then you found out?
Were you surprised?
Did you have to pretend like you didn’t know anything about sex?
No worries, a lot of us went through the same thing, feel free to share. Here is how mine happened:
I came in one day and told my parents that I heard the guys in the locker room talk about the vagina. I really wanted to get that talk out of the way, I was already in sixth grade and everybody knew by that time. They both looked at each other and sat down on the couch, and they explained to me how sex works. Then, I had to go through it with each of them individually to get “both perspectives” of it. Talk about uncomfortable.. but then it was over and we never talked about it again. I still get uncomfortable when I’m with my parents and a sex scene comes up on television though. .
