(trick question, kinda…)
Seriously though. Yah, it can be totez awkward. But avoiding it is worse. And let me tell you, there is NO LIMIT to the dirty little secrets/ videos/ “tips” these days with the technology that is rampantly available. And without your help, your kids will find them, and maybe even use them in a way that can and will hurt themselves, and others, not to mention breaking your heart in the process. So it’s time for you (and all of us) to Be a (Wo)Man! And talk about S-E-X.
“Mothers, teach your daughters the importance of the temple…
This means talking to [them] about sexual matters.”
And, yes the talk is for women. Yes it’s from a man. But if you are thinking there’s some misogynistic thing going here, you are dead wrong.
These principles are gender neutral.
Maybe you are too.
Also, I bolded the part about sex. That was a little weird.
(call to action, Katherine. Kaction!)
So hop to it!
Off this computer right now.
Go have the sexy talk (if your kids are old enough, of course).
Say a little prayer first to help you not be nervous or weirded out
and also to say the right thing(s)
And wear something modest please 🙂
PS. I still don’t love the memories of the birds and the bees talk with my parents.
T-Swizzle’s SNL alter-ego doesn’t either
(it’s clean enough for Taylor to do it, for Katherine to include it on this blog, and also to appear on the same post as Elder Ballard in case you are wondering..):
(sorry the quality is not that great)
PPS. I am NOT anxiously awaiting that talk with my own children (or nieces/nephews/young women). But not totally dreading it anymore either….
