Send us your cringe-worthy tales about your parents, your high school sex ed teacher, or your well-meaning aunt and their attempts to teach you about the birds and the bees. You might see your story on our web site.
Here are a few of the stories we've received so far:
- “The only time I got the sex ed was in school when I was 14. I honestly don’t remember much because my teacher was either abnormally dehydrated or extra nervous because spit kept gathering up in the corners of his mouth. He started to look like a rabid animal. I was so grossed out through the whole talk, but it kind of did the trick. For a while, every time I though about sex I had shuddering flashbacks to how gross it was.” ~ Rosa, 16
- “When I first got my period, my mom said, 'Okay, now you can get pregnant, so don't go sluttin' around.' That was my sex talk. Thanks a lot, mom! Big help!“ ~ Amaya, 17
- “I was in the car with my dad on a six-hour car trip and he decided that it was a good time to have the sex talk. He told me everything about sex… and I mean everything. It wasn’t just 'make sure you use a condom,' he went into exact, scientific detail about how things work and all the messy stuff. If I could have safely jumped from a moving vehicle, I would have.” ~ Taylor, 17
