At what age will you talk to your kids about sex?

If you have a boy, how would you explain to them if they asked you one day why their penis sometimes itches and gets bigger?

i tell my children everything we keep no secrets in my house.

 

we talk about children,sex,condoms,r rated movies,breasts,drugs,child rapists, kidnappers,handicap people,bad people,poor people,dead people,good people,god,death,good people,life,illness ect....

we start at every age since i have 7 children from the ages 24 down to 4 everyone always hears about something around here i would rather my kids hear from me than a stranger or a friend or a tv show.

 

so i try to let my kids know they can asked me anything and shouldn't be shy about asking or knowing they will at least get a clear answer if i know the answer 

kids ~ don't cha want one ?!

Very early. No set age, but I will be giving age appropriate talks from an early age.

I would talk to my children about sex around puberty time. Usually around that time, I would think a child would want an explanation on what is going on with their bodies, why their body is changing. I would be too scared to talk to my children too early about sex because they probably won't understand anyway..and I wouldn't dare wait until they are 15-16 because it will already be too late. Better safe than sorry.

Well I imagine DH will do most of the talking since I have boys.  I will give age appropriate answers when they ask questions.  I don't anticipate having a real sex talk with details until around age 10.   I remember my mom giving me the talk around 11 since that's when I got my period.
