When did you get the sex talk? Was it your parents who gave it to you?

 Nobody talked to me about sex(Well neither of my parents, or any close adults)... I learned from school, friends, older sisters, and personal experience.... I however will certainley give my kids "the talk"..... I'll probably become so annoying with how much I talk to them about sex that their desire to go out and have pre-marital sex will be pretty low... Or atleast I hope! I can dream cant I! lol

My "talk" came from my mom. She said, "I noticed you are getting your period now. You will get it once a month. When you don't get it, it means you are pregnant. You had better always get it as long as you are in my house."

Nice, huh? I had been getting it for a year before she sat me down. I have every intention of NOT saying that it my kids!

I got it when I started to get my period also. I think it was because I asked her why I was bleeding and she told me all the little details about the uterine lining and how it builds to make a baby and then because there is not baby it comes out and starts a new one. Also how this meant that I was a woman now and could make babies, but that sex is a very big emotional and physical thing for people who love eachother and are married. I think I got the rest of the info from friends lol!

one thing I know I will do differently is when I was 16 i asked her if I could get on birth control..I was sleeping my now husband but also wanted it because I was told it would make my periods more regular and less painful. She told me no and that birth control would only make it okay for me to have sex.

It started early, with answers to my questions about the differences between boys and girls, learning the proper names for body parts, etc. When my youngest sibling started asking questions, my mom sat us all down and told the whole story. I was 8. She was always very open and honest and it really helped me to grow into a woman who is not afraid or ashamed of sex. It also helped me be very informed about my body, and have enough self-respect and KNOWLEDGE to protect myself both from giving my heart away to a man who didn't care and from pregnancy.

My stepmom started talking about sex, periods, etc...with me fairly early. The earliest conversation I can remember was probably when I was 7 or 8. Even as I got older, she would randomly ask if I had any questions about sex or if there was anything I wanted to know. She was always very open about it. 

And, of course, in 10th grade, we had a brief sex education class in school.

I never got it. I think they figured school and church would teach me about it. And I was too embarrassed to ask them any questions anyway.

I don't remember ever having the sex talk.. The closest it came was "don't have sex before you're married"
