Finally getting the “sex talk” only because one of my friends, whose mother was a nurse, told me sex involved the man peeing in the woman.
Ew. I guess that’s one way to get a mother to tell the truth.
Mine gave me a book to read, which began with fish, then birds, then mammals and finally got around to people. I was not letting her get away with this.
“Mom, I don’t understand *this* chapter. Would you read it with me?”
So she had to suffer through reading aloud the chapter about human reproduction.
Wasn’t I diabolical?
