  • If you gave him the mechanics of straight sex then I'd do the same for gay sex. I was given that at the age of 8 (I think it's too young personally but since he's asking I assume that he's ready to know).

  • If he is bringing up sexual topics, I don't think you can avoid it untill he I'd older. I believe that 2 people in love can share an intimate relationhip and so I don't have a problem with homosexuality so I would tell my kids that when 2 people who love each other, become committed to each other, they have sex. Then leave it there because I don't think he needs to know details on the mechanics of it.
