Never had the talk, never needed it. Everyone in my immediate family is all aware about sex in general, and me being the youngest I even casually jest sex jokes when they're appropriate.

I learned anatomy and physiology at an early age so I didn't really have a need to ask anyway. Anytime I had a question my mom would always say "look it up" so that was the default course of action. It was inevitable that I self learn it.

Lucky for me I learned it by the books as the internet access was scarce at the time lol

I don't particularly find it awkward as to me it is normal. I even walked in on them once recently to grab some medicine and I just played it off as too dark to see and didn't notice.... or at least that's how I faked it. As I was walking out I said "don't hurt yourself"

I have no problem talking with my parents about it but my mother doesn't like talking about it. So I never got the "talk" and my father just makes jokes about it but won't actually sit down and seriously talk about it.

First of all, I figured out what sex was thanks to television and somewhat middle school. But further on, my mom, to a certain degree. My dad, I would never ask about anything like that.

Hmm... I think I had "the talk" with my old man about 3 months too late.


My mom still thinks I am a pure little innocent soul.


Other than that... no real talking about it ever happened.

Sex is an awkward subject for my parents and I. Part of this is just because we generally understand sex is a private matter, and thus only talk about it as necessary. The other part of this is that I'm gay, which makes discussions more awkward. My parents gave me the "talk" when I was young (I want to say when I was in fifth grade or something), but the extent of the talk was it gets girls pregnant so I should be careful or something like that. The would probably follow-up as I got older, but when I came out that kinda became a moot point.

Which doesn't stop my Dad from every once and while shout "boobs" if there's a very, uhh, attractive women on the screen (I hear this maybe once a year at most); but that's probably the extent of it.

Not very often and it's usually rather direct. No tips or pointers just the odd comment now and then. The conversation never lasts long enough for it to become awkward...

I've never had "the talk" with my parents, I found out through friends and such.

I'm sure when I was younger I would be weirded out if I talked to my parents about sex, but now? It doesn't bother me, or them.

I can talk about sex or joke about it with my dad or mom and they're fine with it.

I actually am very open to my parent about sex now because of a health scare I had.

Its not that bad, we are pretty casual about it.

Never had "the talk" with my parents, it was always kind of find out on your own and no talking about sex with parents is just weird for me.

Yes and no

I wouldn't say I had "The talk" but my parents did try to make sure I was informed of the facts of life, they just didn't have the stereotypical sit down and talk

I think the funniest moment with anyone I know with this was my girlfriend was with her grandma. Me and my girlfriend had been dating for a few months and one day in the car her grandma turns to her and asks if we had, had sex. My girlfriend truthfully told her that no we had not..... Grandma didn't believe her
Makes wonder what she thinks we've been up to now that we've been dating for over two years.

A+ Gif use.

As for me, I never had a real "talk". My mom just said "If you get pregnant we will kick your ass." and that was the end of that. I've learned everything either from going to a public school, or urbandictionary.

They have talked to me about it and taught me it is meant to start a family. They know and I know that I will not have sex before marriage.
Virgin until marriage I suppose.
