Waiting on part 3!
This is quite a topic to start some discussion on. I hope that women far and wide not only participate but use this site as a tool to educate their daughters and sons about sex.
So I first learned about sex when I was 6. My mom got pregnant and I asked the undying question of how. How did the baby get in your belly? She had this book, prepared as she was for the question the story that was in this child based chapter book was upalling to me. “Why would anyone want to put that there,” I asked. Mom laughed but I believe that was the one and only conversation I had with her on the subject.
The second introduction I remember better. I was in 4th grade, and much like you Valda, the boys got to go out and play while the girls watched some reel video about a young girl experiencing the “Curse” for what was her first time. It talked about the things she felt, and what she had to do to protect herself. We all got little kits with a book and feminine products to help us in the transition. I was unlike most of the kids in my class and actually read the book. Wasn’t bad for a child’s chapter book on the topic.
I think it is very important that we take the time to educate our kids not only on the risks of teen pregnancy but birth defects, STDs, and emotions that go along with having sex. A lot of this gets missed in school so it is good to have resources like this that allow for a free discussion on this topic. Even today I find it hard to talk to my mom about sex…and I am now married happily for 3 years, grand-babies have come up. HAHA
Thanks Valda! I will check back often! Hope my in put helps someone else.
Thanks Terri. Yes your comments are very helpful. Few realize the far-reaching emotional consequences of intimate relationships and young people are certainly ill-equipped to know what’s coming. The more we talk about it and have a good open forum I hope the more that people will become educated.
My mother told me to keep my panties up and my dress down in 7th grade. I also have 5 big brothers who threatened every guy that tried to talk to me. I was a virgin until I went to college and the first experience was oral sex first which completed tripped me out. Quite strange to me, at the time, but of course, over the years I learned to love it! LOL
Many have told me that their parents just told them to avoid sex. You are one of the few that kept her virginity until college. Now the question is, what are you teaching the young people around you?
