Jeremy Feist’s post The Birds And The Bees And The Filthy, Filthy Bird-on-Bee Sex That Ensued has inspired us…
So how did you learn about sex?
I talked about this in a GMP piece called Riding In Pop-Pop’s Vulva: How my mother put books on the end of my bed that were covered in paper bags. The books were never spoken about or referenced. And it was a good thing she gave me that first one, called Where Did I Come From?, because up until 2nd grade I believed babies came from when a boy’s and a girl’s pee mixed together… And I was often concerned about what would happen were a boy to forget to flush the toilet before me. I was compulsively flushing the toilet before I used it!
So how about you? Where did you think babies came from? Who had “the talk” with you?
