I had part of all kinds of sexual experiences before meeting my husband, started "early" at 16 (I guess that is not considered early nowadays) and slept with guys I was in love with but also with a few one-time only characters. At age 19 I met my husband and he gave me everything I didn't have before, like the orgasm and the passionate love-making and all that is supposed to be.
Considering what I went through, I think I would have benefited from having a conversation with an adult, not only about condoms and STDs (because that's what they usually talk about) but also on the psychological part of it.
Will you be interested in making sure that your daughter knows "everything" there is to know about sex? Or will you be embarrassed talking to her about these things and will ask someone else to do it? Or you think she should figure it out on her own?
Knowing that she could miss out on these, I am not taking any chance. We'll talk.
You better believe I will!!! She is my responsibility, it's my job to tell her everything I can so she can make informed choices.

"But she will never ask you about orgasm. How will you make sure that she has that in her life?"
I dont' have to give her all the gory details myself exactly.. I can talk about some of it with her, I can give her books, DVD's that explain it ALL, etc. I can still give her the tools she needs to be informed without it being "weird". I don't expect her to ask certain questions, but I will give her the info one way or another. It won't be taboo subject between us... I will tell her or direct her to the info. What she does with that I can't control, but I will know I have done my part!!
