I think one of the great injustices of this world are parents who shirk the responsibility of giving their kids The Talk. It’s universally awkward, but I still think it’s the parent’s responsibility to educate their kids in the practical aspects, like how to be safe and that having a sex drive is perfectly healthy.

Made Rebloggable upon Request “The Talk”

Anon: Did you ever get “the talk” from your parents about sex, or did you have to find out what it was by yourself? My parent gave me a book about puberty, and then I put off reading the section about sex until the week before Sex Dd (I was 12, at this point) so I didn’t seem “dumb” in class if I got weirded out. Do you think it’s better for kids to learn about sex earlier or later, in general? Do you think it’s problematic that we regard penises and vaginas as purely tools for peeing early in life?

FYSE: I got “the talk” from my mom when I was about 10. She’s a nurse so she gave me pretty good information and got me a bunch of books about hygiene, sex, and genitalia. I think learning about sex is a continuous process. I definitely think that kids should learn about their bodies and bodily processes really young. I also think that we should be truthful and instead of telling lies like the stork or whatever we should answer questions honestly. I definitely think kids should learn “where babies come from” early and about safe sex early. I think by the time a child has reached an age where they can procreate (which is getting younger and younger these days) they should know everything about safe sex and birth control. I certainly did. My parents never gave me the “wait until marriage” spiel so by the time I could menstruate I vowed that whenever I did become sexually active I would use birth control and condoms to keep from getting pregnant. I think by the time we’re at least 16 we should know about sexuality and gender. I think we should definitely raise our children knowing about consent. Always stress to children that if anyone touches them without their consent or in a way that makes them uncomfortable to talk to you about it.
