I was in the same boat you are. Then one of his friends said that he heard at school that a girl can get pg from eating rice. Well living in the deep south.. we would all be preggers. So i used it as an open door to start the discussion. kinda like did you hear that and what do you think. you would be amazed at the missinformation that our kids our hearing, so that set the stage for a open and honest talk. he told me all the things he "knew" about sex and i offered an informed and correct answer. So while he is occupied with video games. just say something like you are on your way to being a man now so tell me what you know about it. explain you heard some crazy things and wonder what he knows. make it fun and explain the difference. definatly enforce safety on all measures and the consequence for not being safe.
