Some People Need To Shut Up About the Sex Talk

Let me start off by saying, really, I think sex talks are great, aside from the fact that I'm a second-grader at heart who still giggles about boobies. I'm actually one of those weirdos who LOVES terrifying her children with the scientific truth about the horrifying wonders of their growing, changing bodies - I mean, who loves discussing puberty stuff with her kids.

However, you can't swing your eyeballs around the Internet these days without reading an article about vaginas and penises. And no, I don't mean "Dear Penthouse" kinds of articles (although those are out there too, no doubt). I'm talking about parenting essays explaining how important it is to discuss genitals with your children using proper medical terminology.

Now, you might already have an inkling where I stand on the issue of using the real anatomical terms for dingles and below-the-belt whatchamacallits with kids, since I've written about it and even spoken in front of real-live people and YouTube about how I ruined my kids for life with the sex talk, and I'm also a full-grown adult who just started a blog post with a boobie joke. However, I do believe in sharing the actual words for body parts with kids.

So what's my problem with it?

Well, it's probably not what you think, and it has a lot more to do with the parents than the kids. Please do me a favor and stop by momdotme to read In Defense of Hoohas and Ding Dongs - it's something I feel pretty strongly about and might not be a very popular stance, but I'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter! I'd also love to hear any hilarious boobie jokes you have to share. Because, boobies. *giggle*
