Did your parents ever give you the “birds and the bees” talk?

  • Yes, they did. Luckily, my parents are both very easy-going and cool about sexuality, especially my dad.
    When I was 4-5, my mom started reading sex-ed books to me. It was mostly about pregnancy though, not so much about sex. I was an extremely inquisitive child and constantly asking questions. One of the big questions was where I came from, so my mom explained it to me. The books had a lot of nice, cartoon-like pictures and I really liked them ;-). One or two years later, my mom also told me about sex and periods and these things but I think it felt a little too abstract to fully grasp.
    When I was 12 and up early one Sunday morning, my dad came downstairs, sat next to me on the couch and started talking about masturbation. I was super shy and embarrassed because I had started masturbating just a few months earlier (his timing for this talk was awesome) but the talk wasn't awkward at all. My dad is a really sweet guy and way less reserved/authoritative than other fathers. He petted my hair and giggled and told me that I don't have to be shy. Then he told me about some sex experience he had with a girlfriend as a teenager and that got my interest, so I sat up properly haha :-). And after that, he just asked me some questions about my masturbating habits but it didn't feel invasive at all. He managed to be both light-hearted and dad-like at the same time. He told me that masturbating is fun and healthy and that I shouldn't be shy about it ;-).

  • Haha no. Basically I had to bring a sheet home from school for her to sign saying I could take sex ed. I already knew everything because of people at school, but I had to go anyway. My mother just kinda looked at it and was like "oh". Then when I came back from school she asked me if I had any questions and I said, "hell no" and she was like, "thank god".

  • Yeah when I was 18. I was returning with my dad from nearest town he was driving!..
    He doesn't actually ever gave time to me /us kids!.. And he knows how it was between me and women around me!.. If anything starts it always DEFCON 5-4-3-2-1.
    My mom is a manipulative bitch!.. He proved that a lot of time to me!..
    And as he started about women's!.. 'Thanks to #Girlsaskguys. com' I was already having clue that what was he trying to start, and I shut him out saying!..
    Me : Dad I don't want to know!.. I had enough shit with the annoying maniac women teacher in school.. A manipulative mom and you whipped in a her leash...
    I seen enough of women... Women understand each other and they hate each other... So there is really no point in discussing any of this.
    DAD ( HE WAS LIKE) : Won't you have a family!.. Kids wife!.. Won't you ever get married..
    Me : ( I started laughing loud) really you think I women will put of with!.. Me 5 second and she will put a bullet in either one of ours head!.. Either me or her will be dead!.. You know!.. I am high alert war zone when it comes to women.. So thanks.. But no thanks I am not getting involved with them..

    That's was how the bird and the bees talk went..
    - he never saw me talking to girl of my age.. (after 12age)
    - I have only guy friends
    - I have only brothers no sister in house. Cousin. Sister yes but never met them they won't even recognize me
    - I never chat with a girl on phone!.. Just no friends ( male) usually casual abusive language. ( not a conversation of more the 10 min in whole day)
    - I spend most of my day inside!. Like a looser with my tablet or on PC obey parents!.. I was a bit rebel.. But I seen my brothers condition after rebel.. ( he had to swallow what he spit) poor guy!.. He is going nuts,.. They controled him financially.. I pity him.. Right calm as a sea!.. Once I get my place!. I will make sure!.. My parents walk in on me the next morning!.. When I am between 2 chick's after threesome!.. Sleep happily!.. ( I wonder this will kill my mom)..

  • My dad came so close! He backed out as soon as I had questions! I was almost 14.
    We were driving to the store and he started with.
    "Do you like any girls right now?"
    "Not really"
    "Well you will soon. And when you do you'll feel all happy and joyful, especially if she loves you back.
    But son, a man and a women mustn't be too physical until they know they are right for each other. And the right time is marriage.
    Do you know how a baby is made after marriage?
    "Not really"
    "Well when the man and women love each other very very much they sleep together. And when they do that a little tiny white thing from the man's privates goes into the woman's privates."
    "Oh... how does it do that?"

    *no answer...

    then we got to the store and he just kinda pretended that conversation never happened.

    and about a week later i Googled it and learned a lot more than just sex! I also learned abut porn, dildos, boobs, semen, menstrating, sex positions, anal, golden showers, oral, handjobs, fingering, and pretty much everything you can think of.

    Thanks, dad! Thanks for making me curious!

  • Yes but honestly it was more of a puberty talk. They never got into the sex part. It was filled with mediphores that I never really understood. I learned about sex the normal way a teenager does. On campus from other kids bragging.

  • Nope, I got a computer when I was 10. But instead of looking at porn, I studied a program call "ADAM The Inside Story". It was fun to me. XD

    I have enjoyed learning about physiology and psychology since.
