A few days ago, my older brother was in the hospital with my mom, and he recognized a woman.

He said "Mom, I used to know that girl in high school. She wasn't that ugly though."

Mom said "Well, that's what happens when you get used a lot."

My brother told me he was completely caught off guard because my parents never talked about sex in front of us. He said he felt awkward and weird.

So are you comfortable talking with your parents about sex or anything related to sex?

No. Not because it's taboo or anything. I can easily talk about it with anyone.

But considering I don't speak to my mother, I'd find it very odd.
And my father doesn't talk about anything in depth. He'd just make a joke or grumble something.

Best to leave those sorts of conversations to more intelligent family members.

it does feel weird, i would never want to disclose or be disclosed something like that by my mom, it's sickening.

When I was younger, not so much. As an adult it felt less awkward.

True stories.

1) My parents never had "the talk" with me. I remember asking and asking when I was about 10 or 11 or so (because there were schoolyard rumors about sex that I wanted to confirm the validity of), and my mom wouldn't answer and hinted at some time in the future when she would answer. By the time I started menstruating, which was I think the time my mom felt the talk would be appropriate, there was not that much need for it in terms of the basics so I didn't ask. And therefore never got answers from her (or from my father, who I never actually asked.)

2) A little while after my dad died and my mother realized it was possible she might start dating, she came to me for a brief discussion about safer sex, aware that I was more knowledgeable about it than she was. I felt pretty comfortable about having that conversation.

My parents never talked to me about sex.

They assumed I learned it all in school...which I did I guess.

I never had talk with either parent. My father died when I was young, and my mother never mentioned it. We did learn about it in sex ed class in junior high.

Used a lot like in had sex a lot.

But nah, my parents don't really say much about. They just tell me, focus on your education before getting serious with a girl. Cliche~

It's funny, because when I see these kinds of posts, It amazes me the disconnect a lot people have from their parents. Is it the parents fault? or is it because of the teen's rebellious nature and not wanting to listen to what their parents have to say? not sure, but for me, i can say this.

I was born in the virgin islands, and my family is rich with culture, because of that, family is everything, and we're pretty damn close (some of us), my father and I however are not as close per say (due to how he treated my mother) i'm more close and opened with my mother, can't imagine living my life not knowing if she's ok (call me a momma boy all you want, lol).

With that being said, i can say that neither my mother nor father ever approached me to have the talk, as I got older, i asked my mother lots of questions, i felt very comfortable asking her, and she answered most of them, sometimes it got explicit, (note I was about 16 at the time) and she even told me about her experiences (non graphic of course), she told me about waiting and wearing protection in case something did happen.

For me, I felt lucky to have such a relationship with at least one of my parents, but some people act as if their parents are the enemies on this topic, so it's strange for someone like me to understand their discomfort. lol
