//What I Wish My Parents Had Told Me About Sex....

I wish I had told my son that it’s okay to be attracted to be someone of the same sex

My son took his life over ten years ago, he was a teenager and gay and closeted. We lived in the suburbs and he was shy. He had more girlfriends than guy friends and deep in my heart I knew that he liked boys. We never talked about sex at home. He grew up without [...]

About Masturbation

I wish my mother had communicated in some way about masturbation. She caught me masturbating maybe half a dozen times, from a somewhat early age, and she would always get upset with me about it - but I never understood why! Of course, the angst this caused me wasn't nearly enough to stop me from [...]

Sex is pleasurable

I wish I hold my daughter that sex can be pleasurable and that it's better when you know what you want and can tell your partner what you want.

The names of my genitals

Christy I wish my mom had taught me the correct names for my genitals and that saying the actual names was ok. I wish she has not waited until I was a teenager to give me a book to read about sex and bodies without ever mentioning anything about it prior. I wish I had [...]

Stages of Sex

I wish my mom told me more about the different 'stages' of sex. Once I got to my late teens, I was thinking about sex a lot, and figuring out my own morals and ideas about if I should have sex, and who with, and how to know it was "right." However, I only thought [...]

Pleasure

I wish my mom had told me that sex was pleasurable and that it wasn't something to be afraid of....because I was afraid it was all I worried about when I met a guy. My first thought was "Do I have to have sex with him"? not "Do I even want to have a cup [...]

The Specifics

Although I was always told that I could say 'no' to sex, I was never told that I was allowed to say 'no' to specific sex acts. I'm sure my mother thought it was obvious that if I didn't like something, I should speak out. But I thought after you decided you were ready to [...]

Luckily I never had to find that out the hard way…

I wish my mom had told me that I didn't have to put out to find love. It seems like such a simple concept now but since I grew up with the whole "abstinence till marriage" notion I was unprepared for what it'd be like if I didn't wait. I also wish I'd been told [...]
