Did your parent have an official "sex" talk with you?

Or did you pretty much learn it on your own?

No. I did get a " don't ever use petroleum jelly as lube with a condom!" Lecture when I got married. Apparently it melts condoms and that's how I came to be.

No they didn't.  My mom just bought me the American Girls book, I think it was called, "The Care and Keeping of You," and left it at that.  I gained my knowledge of sex from friends (so beneficial ::eye roll::) and from health class.

I told my husband that we're having a rule that sex is not a taboo subject in our home.  I don't want DD (and any other children we may have) to feel like they can't talk to us about it.
