As an adult, have you ever talked to your parents about your sex life? If so, what was the nature of the conversation?

I've never gotten into the specifics with mine or anything, but after you've been with someone for a decade and had two children, I'm sure they've figured out you have sex, lol! I have mentioned to my dad that my daughter is the "sex police" and left it at that. After a several month dry spell, I told my mother that she needed to take my daughter for a couple hours so I could have some "alone time" with my SO. My grandma has made comments like "You guys must not be having much sex if you're still co-sleeping"

Is that pretty typical? Is there anyone that doesn't talk at all about it or that gets more extreme with the conversations?

  • My family is pretty open with sex and whatnot...your conversations are pretty normal as far as my family is concerned....IMO once you get pregnant all ideas of being pure have gone out the window, and your parents know you need your alone time with your spouse, they are parents too remember!

  • LOL! My 18 year-old cousin was telling me this summer about how her father found out that she was having sex with her boyfriend and I was mortified! I said "I am married and have a son and as far as my father knows it was immaculate conception!" I don't think I'd ever mention something remotely sexual to my father. My mother knew when I started having sex and got me on the pill, besides that I can't imagine talking about it otherwise. Although...I don't really talk about it with anyone but by hubby. I guess I'm a little prudish that way.

  • lol, ive never talked to either one of my parents about sex...the only thing my mom has ever said to me was make sure he uses a condom..and that was like 8 years ago when i was a rebellious teen and i got up and moved across the country to live with a guy..then when i found out i was pregnant 5 years ago, i was so embarrased becuz then my parents would know for sure that i was sexually active..and coming from a christian family, born and raised..that was tough!! all i was ever told was NO SEX BEFORE sure showed them!!! :)

  • Our family is to open about sex. My yougest DD tells me thing. I would rather not know. But I don't want her to think she cant talk to me about everything so I let her tell me. I would rather know then not know. Me and my mom have talked about sexual things too.

  • Yep we are very open. I cant name all the things my mom and I have talked about. And as weird as it sounds she has talked to me about hers. My family is very open. My sister and I talk about it all the time. The places we have done it the craziest positions. Its not embarrassing at all.

  • so far as im concerned, my parents had sex 4 times, thus having 4 bio kids. we arent very open that way. lol. so much that they know myself and my oldest sister have had sex (obviously, we have kids), but the middle sister will not tell my parents, cause she is the golden girl and she doesnt want to disappoint. shes been with her fiance 4 1/2 years,
