    It Was An Accident.

    I was 8 years old, in 3rd grade, and I knew something was "up". I'd heard murmurs about "the birds and the bees" from the infinitely knowledgeable 5th graders, and had asked what it was. Inevitably, they'd exchange a knowing look and say, "Um, you'll...

    I Wasn't Ready For It

      At the age of eleven I had a bit of a growth spurt and it wasn’t just in height.  I went and grew two quite credible breasts, not as big as they became eventually, but quite a nice pair of boobies and I started to look more like a young woman than a girl.  ...

    It was one of those preteen years... It really wasn't anything big or dramatic with me.  I can't even remember how we got talking about it.  Someone had just brought up the topic of getting married and then getting pregnant or something.  Then I just kind of...

    Father Really Doesn't Know Best

     My father told me about the birds and the bees. I still remember the day he called me to the living room looking very somber. My mother was already sitting on the couch also looking somber. I was afraid they were going to tell me that they were sending me away, but instead...

    Running Scared!

    I was in first grade, riding the bus home from school one day when Timothy asked me if i knew what the F-word meant.  Of course, i did not, and so he broke it down for me - in very crude language.  I ran from the bustop to my house, in tears, horrified at the prospect...

    we never spoke about sex at all until i was 16. I knew what periods were because a teacher told us. my mum only had the 'talk' when i was 16 because i was legal, and she felt the need to tell me about condoms, but even then it wasnt a proper talk. still havent told her she was 3...

    It Never Happened

    My parents never gave me the talk.  My sex education started with "Just don't do it or you'll go to Hell!" and ended with "Just don't do it or you'll go to Hell!"  I had sex ed in high school Health class but it was dumb.  I learned about sex by...

    I Will Never Forget It

    I will never forget that dark and stormy night my parents sat me down to have "that talk."  My father, who was going through a difficult patch, was dressed like Carmen Miranda.  To be fair, he looked good, although the mustache wasn't working.  He removed...

    To Late

    My parents talked to me 3 years to late. They came to me and tried to tell me about condoms and sex after I had already been having sex with my boyfriend for 2 years. He is now my husband and we laugh at how my parents think we didn't have sex until we got married but I took a...

    Yes... my parents first had "the talk" with me, when I was 21... lot of good that did me! It was too late then! ROTFL! XD I had to learn about "the birds and the bees" from my peers... and of course, they got it all wrong in many parts of it. So, the...

    My Mother

    The first time that I asked my mother to tell me about the facts of life I was about 13 years old and had been molested for about two years by the neighbor boy.  Of course I did not know if she knew this or not and it was a very difficult time for me.  I remember that...

    I Never Got 'the Talk'

    i dont think my parents really knew how to approach the matter. i hope its not cause they assumed i would just never have 'relations'.  or maybe since i had 3 older sisters my parents assumed i would learn what i should and shouldnt do by observing what my...

    I Was Pretty Young

    I don't remember how young i was, but my mom gave my sisters (4 years older than me) "the Talk" and i kept bugging her to tell me what they were talking about so she just told me. I was definitely still in Elementary school. I think it's good that i learned at a young...

    They didn't even say the word sex around me. I didn't even know what a condom looked like until ninth grade. I didn't know what lube was. my sex ed teacher taught me everything. and I watched some p o r n with my ex boyfriend and I learned a couple things from it. I had no clue...

    They Never Did "TALK' to Me

    I think I was about 10 years old when my mom handed me a set of books designed for pre-teens and teens. It covered puberty in quite a bit of detail, mostly the mechanics, including how a baby is produced. After I read the books she asked me if I had any questions, obviously...

    They Never Did

    I learned about sex from a copy of "Everything you wanted to know about sex" that was lying around in the house. In hindsight, I think the movie is better LOL

    Seriously, my parents never sat down and had the official 'talk' with me. My mother's a nurse so I kind of grew up knowing about "the birds and the bees." As for when its appropriate to have sex, marriage was never a criteria. I was told 2 things: a)  don't have...
