Absolutely, it's not awkward at all. But I understand it depends on the bond you have with your parents and religion might play a role aswell.

I just came here for the Cumberbatch.

My mom was pretty chill with the talk, but had I just had my dad around, I don't think I would have ever talked to him about it. I always felt sorry for the girls in my 5th and 6th grade classes who would tearfully run to the office under the impression they were dying when they got their first period.

I don't like it when they talk about stuff like that, just because it just bugs me and I don't really like talking about it in general.

I try to dodge the subject with my father, as he is a whore (both his own terms and literally). When I was 9, my mom sat myself and my little sister down and told us about penises, vaginas, and periods. No real anatomy, and thanks to abstinence only education, I finally learned the anatomy while reading parts of my health text book outside of class. I learned proper use of a condom freshman year of college, which is sad, but given my lack of a love life it didn't matter.

I don't discuss such things with my mother. I really don't want things to lead to me having to think about her having sex in any way. I imagine she feels much the same.

Also, you don't get ugly from having a lot of sex. I don't know how your mom came to that conclusion when she doesn't even know that woman, but that's such a cruel thing to say. Also a very ignorant thing to say.

I wish I had the talk. All I got was a fucking book. Quite frankly I think it's sad I'm more comfortable talking about it than they are. My grandparents nearly shit their pants when I told them I was sexually active. My father and stepmother are pretty progressive about everything so I'm glad to have them though.

I still to this day cannot understand how prudes like my grandparents have continued to function in society for the last almost 60 years. Sex is natural. It's an act practiced by many species in nature including us, so why is it so fucking hard for people to bring it up in a discussion? Where did this new-found awkwardness with educating children on the dos and don'ts of sexual activity come from?

Now this might be purely just guessing on my part, but I have this suspicious feeling that if parents would grow a pair and properly educate their children on these things, a lot of issues that are affecting teens and young adults of today might start to disappear very quickly or at the very least become less problematic to deal with. I know there is sex ed, but the school should not have to teach a child about sex. That is a parent's duty, in my opinion.

You don't just leave a growing man in puberty to his own devices without telling him how to properly wrap his junk. That shit is what leads to unplanned pregnancy and child support that you find yourself struggling to pay for.

Ha! Haha! Ahahah! Haha! Hahaha! Ahh...

No.

Well, actually... This one time when I forgot a little black notebook on a chair in the living room and my dad had a quick look inside and concluded that I was some womanising... Let's just say I think he assumed that I had a whole A5 notebook's worth of girls I could call on. Yeah right! This nerd had a whole notebook of girls to call on! What it really was was a notebook of characters in the story I was writing.

So, he started having a talk with me, and before he could make it irreversibly awkward I managed to tell him it was a notebook of characters in a story I was writing. It was awkward, of course (more for me, I think), but I managed to avoid an even more awkward situation.

Anyway, no. God no. I've never had the sex talk with my parents, and at 20, I don't need, nor want, the sex talk with my parents. I'm old enough now that it would be needlessly awkward and embarrassing. But hey, if I have kids I wouldn't be too averse to giving the talk.

Yeah I don't even talk to them about anything let alone the most awkward thing in the world.

My parents and I constantly make sexual jokes all the time. So yeah. They've even sat me down and had the famous "talk" a long time ago. I think it's ridiculous to not teach your child about these things. Sex education in America is going down the drain anyway.

i have had the talk by my mother she found it was necessary so to not get wrong idea's and to you know to understand the consequence's
that could happen if i didn't have save sex

and i have talked to my parents about their experience and told them of mine but we never went into details

but mostly i like sex as material for humor

and though i am attracted to woman i am most likely a sexual
since i never felt the need to actually try to hit on a girl or start a relationship

That talk is never said to me yet to my older siblings all the time befause I overhear
I think there really is no reason for parents to teach kids about because school teaches you about it also word of mouth
(I learned because of science)

I never got the sex talk from my parents, it was just something we never talked about. But there was the, "Other kids think your're a lesbian" talk .....that was a little odd.
