Let's talk about sex

All the good things
and the bad things that may be

There is no shame here. I do it just like everyone else. Well, maybe not exactly like everyone else. We all have things we like and we all have things we don't, but in the end the job gets done.

If the job doesn't get done, then I'm so sorry. There's not much I can do to help, but I wish you all the best!

I'm not one to open up and freely talk about my sex life. Like with other aspects of my life, if you ask I will probably answer, but all you need to know for now it that it's good. Real good!

Talking about sex with the husband or other adults is one thing. With kids? That's another ball of wax!

My oldest midget is 9. I know the day we have "the talk" is coming. More than likely, sooner than I want, but for now? I'm not ready to travel down that road. If she approached me with questions I would do my best to answer. But I am not about to throw the ins and outs at her if I'm not sure she's ready. But her age presents a sticky situation. Some of her friends have started to talk.

One boy has had some talks with other kids about sex. As of last year, according to his mom, sex is a man and a woman lying together, hugging and kissing. And that is how you make a baby. Add another year, and an older sibling. Is his definition still the same? If your 9 year old came home with this definition, what do you do? Should you go with it or explain what really happens? See, sticky!

Ask me about my sex life and you may get an answer. Explaining it to my child? How about we go out for ice cream instead?

i have no answers. good luck to you. we talked to my nephew (16) that if he is too scared to ask his mom for condoms - ask his uncle chris.

wow thats definitely a sticky situation. At the age of 9 if you go on and explain theres a chance that everyone at recess will be told what she heard. reminds me of that episode of Army Wives. Best of luck hun, I hope that I dont have to approach that situation any time soon

I dread the day. Seriously. I don't remember specifically ever talking about "sex", but I remember my parents went to a class at church about how to talk about things with your kids and they bought me a book about the female body and functions and let me read it, then we talked about any questions I had. it worked well for us, and maybe I'll do the same for the boys...if I can trust them to actually read it!

That's so hard! I don't have kids yet, but I hadn't thought about what to say when they hear wrong things from other people - I mean, should you correct it? 'Cause it sounds like a joke waiting to happen about some child kissing a boy and freaking out because she then thinks she's pregnant!

LOL! Ice cream is good!!!

Bella asked Thomas where babies came from and I wasn't around. She's totally confused now because he filled her head will "tadpoles" and "eggs" and now she thinks she started out as a frog in my belly, lmao!!! Oy! But it was good enough for now....

I'm so not looking forward to this with my boys. Part of me wants to say they are boys, their daddy should have the talk with them...but I'm scared of what he will tell them.
