I never received such an honor. I learned the glorious P+V=B equation from friends and the internet. 9th grade health class taught me the complexities of it.

Wow, 9th grade? Back in 4th grade we got little goodie bags with condoms and lube, and they explained everything. Never had a talk from the parents though.

Yeah, and also learned in about 6th or 7th grade in middle school.  Was very uncomfortable talking to my parents about that when I was that age.

No, we had a little lesson in 5th grade where the boys and girls were separated and we watched some fun videos. I knew the gist of everything by then though.

I learned everything from HBO After Dark at age 5. TV was so much more informative back then.

I got books. And later found Sue Johanson and her Sunday Night Sex Show. The latter of which should be mandatory for children who are in puberty to watch. Sex ed these days just goes over the mechanics, it doesn't ever talk about the emotional side of sex, which is as equally important.

My parents never really told me the schematics, they left that up to the primary school I was in when I was in grade 6. The thing they really told me is that they're not gonna be bothered by me having sex as long as I'm responsible.

Although I did talk with my dad about sex and stuff when I was 14 and such.

Thanfully my mother never approached me about such stuff, that would have been fvcking awkward

No. Obviously there is no reason to ever acknowledge sex exists until I am married.

I asked my mom what fvck meant when I was 5 or 6.  I had no idea what she was talking about, but i guess it was technically a "talk".

Nah, don't recall any such talks. But I somehow always understood the whole 'P goes into V. And that's how babies are made' side of things.

That's higher learning...we learned it from being on the streets.

Literally--we found old discarded adult magazines on the street. The pages were so damaged, it was hard to tell if we were looking at a boob, butt, or elbow.

Did you blow up the old discarded balloons that were laying around it and make balloon doggies and giraffes?

My mom told me to use two condoms. My father told me that I should masturbate if I can't get a girl and to not believe guys who say they don't masturbate That's it.

Lol the same thing happened at my school. And of course we all shared what the videos were about with each other...

My parents never gave me the talk. I learned about it on my own, probably in 4th grade.

Holy crap 4th grade? Thats super young. I was 13 when I figured out P+V. I'm surprised your school did that. Especially lube and condoms....

Could be worse--you could have gotten a foreign set of instructions:

"Registerkarte Einfügen A in den Schlitz B...?*  Why the fvck are these instructions in German?!"

*Translated: Insert tab A into slot B.

Yes. My father is much like me in his belief about being straight forward with other people and he explained it without censorship when I was about 14 after finding a condom wrapper in my room. I was...erm...experimenting. >_>

I knew pretty much everything prior to this conversation.  I just let him talk as if it was the first time hearing any of it.
