Do You Remember 'The Talk' When You Were a Teenager?
November 22, 2023 3:59pm CST
I was watching an overly sexy movie last night (some movies seem to have that going on like cigarette smoking back in the 30s and 40s) and I got to remembering back when I had 'the talk' with my mom. It was just that I questioned the actual mechanics of the activity. "Do you mean to tell me that it goes in there?" I asked. "Yes, it does." And that was about the gist of the entire conversation. Just me needing to know for sure. We did have a great Home Health class back in junior high. How did your talk go?

We saw a film on it around 5th/6th grade at school. When my mom signed the permission slip, she said yah, she thought I should know about it . . . and I was thinking know about what . I heard bits and pieces of what other girls knew. The film was technical, but not about the "process" . . . I didn't understand how the egg and sperm would ever meet. I asked my mom and she said she'd tell me when I got married . So I never had a real talk with my mom about it . . . just kinda had to learn along the way from others.

no I don’t think my parents and I ever had a talk like that from what I recall but yours made me giggle. I did ask how babies come out and my mom said there was a little red door and when the baby is ready to be born the doctors open the door or something like that she told me. I was always so baffled by it. I wound up finding out from a book at a book store.
