Chat for sex doubts
I don’t know how to navigate figuring things out in my Wasatch Front culture.
Today my sister said “when I was in jr high I thought sex was __ and__ and then I figured out it was so much more”.
You wrote to me as a mother, and I’m answering from a position of an LDS woman and mother who enjoys sex very much, and has a healthy sex life.First, you’re absolutely right that as Mormons we generally do a horrible job of teaching kids kids about sex. They are the grownups, and even if the topic makes them uncomfortable, it’s their responsibility to teach their children.And trying to help them avoid feeling uncomfortable should not be the priority; you getting the information and knowledge you need is the priority.This combination leads to curious kids who don’t really know where to go for good answers. I’m 18 and about to graduate from high school and quite frankly all I really know about sex is what I’ve seen from movies.Maybe 50 or 100 years ago it wasn’t really important to know that much, but in 2017 I think that teens need to be equipped with this knowledge.
