Telling boys not to have sex or to refuse BJs from girls, is usually a waste of time.

“a t-girl "in progress"”

If you had rather that your sons learned about sex from YOU, parents, you had damn well have "the talk" - and several follow-up talks - BEFORE your boy reaches puberty. If you delay beyond the onset of puberty, your kid will be given the information from another source. Maybe a responsible adult, or maybe an irresponsible one (like the one who taught me how to please a man at age 12), or maybe from other kids. C'mon, Mom and Dad. Be grownups. Tell your kids what they need to know BEFORE they need to know it!

Most parents have no idea when their kids have reached puberty. They go day by day not noticing the changes taking place because it happens so gradually. Until one day they accidentally walk in on their kids in the bathroom and are face to face with a crop of pubic hair. Or they walk in on them kids spanking the monkey and wonder how long that's been going on. Perhaps mom's wondering why her sons socks have been sticking together so much.

This was the nice thing about raising a nudist family. There were no surprises and because everything is always out in the open as it were; nudist parents have no problem talking about sex to their kids.

One of the big problems I have is about parental censorship. That misguided attempt to not even spell the word S.E.X around their kids. Parents will find that pretending something donít exist only makes them look like a liar to their kids later on when they actually do find out about it. The funny thing is that these parentís favorite phrase is usually something like.ďA lie of omission is still a lie.Ē

I have long had a sense that most mothers have heart to heart talks with their daughters on 3 subjects:

* This is menstruation and here's what you have to be aware of in order not to make a mess.

* Most teenage boys, and a lot of grown men, are pervs. Beware, dear.

* This is how you get pregnant, and for heaven's sake, don't get pregnant before you marry.

Fathers are generally very uncomfortable with this whole ball of wax. Mothers feel awkward talking to their boys. So with boys, the crucial talks often don't happen, or happen too late.

My mother did say some things to me, albeit a bit late and a bit prudish.(She made up for this in other ways.) My father was utterly worthless.

It is my impression that no book and no parent and no sex ed class is willing to discuss foreplay explicitly. Nearly everything I know about lubrication I have learned from experience.

I learned about lubrication on accident. It was when I was in the showers while serving in the army and I decided that my privates needed a good "cleaning" so I lathered up really well, but hmm something wasn't right... Or rather something was extremely right Either way I ran out of soap lathering UP. When I finally opened the shower curtain everyone in my platoon was standing there cheering me on and taking pictures. Oh and I had to drip dry because someone had taken to using my towel to snap my ass with.

I will say that it was the last time I ever whacked off dry.
