I’m scared to death…

I wish my parents would've told me how hard it was to resist men because i had to learn on my own. all they would say is that i shouldn't have sex til I'm married and would make me feel like the biggest sinner if i did have sex before i was married. that's why [...]

Setting limits when it comes to sex…

My parents never told me about unequal love and that an adult is responsible for setting limits when it comes to sex, love and relationships. That sex between a 13 year old and a 24 year old youth minister messed with your head and life, until I got into counseling. My parents never talked to [...]

While it would have been awkward…

I wish my mom had talked to me more about sex and masturbation. While it would have been awkward as shit, I would have appreciated knowing that I wasn't weird or just being a lonely high-schooler. Because we never talk about it I feel awkward bringing up the subject to her. But maybe if we [...]

With unrestrained honesty…

I don't remember getting the "talk." I always knew, because whenever I had a question about anything my mom always answered with unrestrained honesty. When I got into high school she stressed how important it was that if I thought I was going to get into a sexual relationship with a guy that I tell [...]

Instead of lecturing me…

I wish my mum had talked to me in a more easy-going way instead of lecturing me (not just once, but constantly since I was seven). I wish she had been a little less of a mum about it. That would have made me more comfortable with talking about it in general.

I was not prepared for it to hurt…

My parents were pretty good about talking about sex so I was prepared for it to hurt when I lost my virginity... I was not prepared for it to hurt the second and third time, nobody told me that it doesn't start to feel great after the first couple of times so I thought something [...]

That I don’t have to share them…

I wish they would have told me earlier that those are my parts. That I don't have to share them with others, even adults, but they didn't.

I never had the guts…

I wish my parents would have told me that it was ok to have sex. and to not be afraid to talk to them about it. and just had an open relationship with me about it. especially when it came to having sex my first time and telling them i wanted to have birth control. [...]

Less shame in masturbation…

I wish there had been less shame in masturbation. I was never told about it and discovering it and how my body worked as a young female was very shameful and confusing. Now I feel more confident and I know that female masturbation is natural and awesome!

To be curious and explore…

I wish my parents had told me it was alright to be curious and explore your sexuality.
