a special suit?

this is an absofuckinlutely true story...a friend of mine was having the "talk" with her prepubescent son...she and her husband gave the short story about sex and emphasized the "date n' wait" policy regarding sex but did say that if/when he decides to have sex he should always use protection...sounds simple right?....WRONG...

they used the ridiculous word "rubbers" when referring to "protection"...they probably said "you want to keep your willy away from the girl's hoo-ha at all times so that it doesnt get sick, but if you want to risk it, you should use some special protection called a rubber..."

after a long dramatic pause the thoroughly confused pre-teen asks "so, is that like a special suit or something that i have to wear??"...

...

doh!...and do they correct him??...nope...she nods her head vehemently and says "that's right!...and when you are ready for that step, you let me know and i will take you the store to get fitted for it!"...

now, as funny as that is, why do we insist on raising sexually ignorant children...this boy is going to go off to middle school/jr high or whatever and have incorrect information...he will probably tell the girl she wont get pregnant if he wears a suit, so he's going to rent a tux to be extra protected...

parents are so afraid of talking about all things sexual with their children that they miss one very important point...if you dont tell them the right information, they will stumble through life on the wrong information...

hell, i never even got the "talk"...my mother was so petrified of anything remotely sexual that she covered my eyes at the movie theater during the shower scene for "footloose"...it was just a few rear ends...

now, i envision the child of my friend walking around in a giant body-size condom...whoa...trippy...

Better than what my family told me. They told me that when I wanted to have a baby I'd have to get raped. They told me that it was horrible and so was being pregnant and giving birth but that the baby was worth it. They really stressed periods and pregnancy in their talk. Never once mentioned dating in any way shape or form. I was always a little confused as to how you found a husband in the first place before you could have the baby. lol. And they told me that if I had a baby I had to leave home forever, especially if I wasn't married.

Too many parents teach their children nothing useful about their sexuality, and then they are surprised when the children make bad decisions.
