For most people, the thought of their parents trying to talk to them about sex is enough to make them cringe hard enough to break something. It’s probably why most moms and dads today don’t want to bring up the subject with their own children.
I mean, we’ve all been there ourselves. Hearing your parents starting to talk about “two people” and “loving each other very much” makes you want to scream into a pillow. But it’s a conversation that we all need to have eventually, and some think it should be happening earlier than you would think.
