  • I was 12.

    I found one of my dad's porns. Gross, yep. Totally not the way I should have found out, but it could explain many things lol. Before that, I didn't realize insertion had anything to do with it.

  • I was 8th grade...One of my friends/classmates was already a father to two children (he also was in the 8th grade). He talked about it and well I listened.

  • Um, 5th grade. We had a sex ed class for like a week. I remember my mom saying "did you understand? Do you have any questions?" and that was that. She never pushed the topic again.

  • I was in grade school. My mom took me to the doctor and wanted him to tell me about it. The doctor refused, told her to get a couple of books from the library and read them.

    She got the books...and made me read them.

  • My mom told me about sex when I was about eight, that's when I started puberty.

    I didn't really understand sex itself until I was a little older.
