Birds, Bees and VIPs

We're talking birds and bees! What was your experience when given the "sex talk"? Or did it even happen for you? We asked a few of our Queen VIPs and here is what they had to say! 

 

Generally, my family was pretty comfortable talking about sex, so there was never really a ‘talk’. But I do remember sort of having a ‘talk’ with one of my friends that were more experienced than I was about sex and how it would all go. She told me it may hurt a little, but that it will get better with time and just to go slow. Overall, the talk was a good positive experience because I was able to talk to a friend I trusted.

I never had the “sex talk” in my house. Sex was a taboo topic and I had no contact with it until I watched a movie that had sex in it. Later on, in middle school, we had a section of sex-ed. To this day I have never had the sex talk but I made it a note to be aware of sex health being a sexually active person.

My mom never gave me the “sex talk”. I honestly didn’t know exactly what “sex” was until my friends at school brought it up and then I later was introduced to sex ed. When I was younger I was restricted from watching a lot of adult television as well so I knew sex was a thing, but I was not familiar with the word or what it meant until a little further down the road.

I was in the fourth grade when I learned what sex was. My parents didn’t have a discussion with me and I learned from a friend, who heard from a friend, who heard from another friend… it was like a game of telephone. It seemed so wildly untrue that I turned to the internet to tell me what sex is, and from that, I am scarred for life.

I was never given the sex talk by my parents, which most people would be grateful not to have, however, I wish I had this talk. The alternative I was given was overhearing conversations about sex from my older siblings, which is never good. Essentially, I was playing telephone with whatever I heard from them, I could understand minor details but once I attempted to relay the information to friends, NOTHING was correct. Soon enough I took a sex-ed class and found that I was missing some crucial information in the process.
