Cut Video brought in five kids and had their parents give them the sex talk. Here are their priceless reactions:
Did your parents ever sit you down and have the bees and birds talk with you?
If yes, what do you wish they did a better job in with the conversation?
If not, do you on hindsight wish they did? And if so, how do you think they could have explained it to you?
As a sexologist, I work primarily with individuals and couples who have sexual questions, issues or problems.
They often lament about their lack of sexuality education, and also express their regret that their parents never had any sex talk with them. Usually, sex is not spoken about and never portrayed or discussed in positive ways.
I have previously shared my personal story about my sexual awakening in my Masturbation Month videos. It actually led to some people to have the misconception that I’ve had sexuality education and “the” talk with my parents. I didn’t.
What I did have were glimpses of how sex was something to look forward to, special, and reserved for adults. I looked forward to growing up, and to great sex. That little bit, I managed to comprehend from my parents, especially my mom, did help me have a more positive attitude about sex and sexuality than many of my peers. I am grateful for that.
Is sex ed a subject for the schools to tackle, or should more parents take responsibilty to be comfortable with their own sexuality and talking about it so that they can be positive models for their children?
If you have sexual inhibitions and wish to be more comfortable with the sex talk, please do not hesitate to contact me.
