Do you and your parents talk openly about sex? (or you and your children)

It seems that talking about it between parents and children (regardless of age) is such a taboo.. I don't have children yet, but when I do, I think its important to have an open line of communication, regardless the subject.

I talk with my kids about sex in an age appropriate way. I also make sure they feel comfortable asking me questions. Even if it is an uncomfortable question I always give them a straight answer. I want them to know the facts and to be able to ask anything. I never want them to feel sex is anything other than natural and I also want them to have the facts and be safe. That is way more important to me than worrying about being uncomfortable with any certain topic.

i don't think it's taboo unless maybe you're giving them suggestions about sex positions & stuff. i had to take a class on child & family development, & our teacher was saying how when a child asks you questions you should be honest w/ them, but also keep it age appropriate. if they ask where babies come from, tell them, but don't be too graphic & consider how old they are. my parents never really talked to me about sex, but they did sit my sister & me down (we're a yr apart) & explain periods & stuff to us (using text book diagrams & stuff that they got off the internet). they did that right before i went to middle school. & right before i went to hs, they sat me down & told me how i should never let a guy touch me inappropriately, & if he did, to slap the hell out of him, yell, "DON'T YOU EVER TOUCH ME LIKE THAT AGAIN!" very loudly, then go tell a teacher or administrator. they told my sister the same the next yr. if we ever had questions, they were glad to answer them, but they never really asked my sister & i about our "sex" lives till we were in college. my sister & i never went on a lot of dates in hs, so it was never really something that they worried about. now they tell us that we're old enough to make our own decisions when it comes to being intimate, & to just be smart & think about what we're about to do. & of course to be safe. my sister started having sex a few months ago & went to my parents & asked if she could go on birth control. while they wished that we wouldn't have sex till we're married, they let her do it b/c they'd rather she be safe than get pregnant.

I was scared of anything remotely sexual for most of my life. But as I got older, I got curious and needed to know more about sex. This was around my freshman year when everyone seemed to be getting laid and I was still a virgin. I started to talk to my mom, and it was really awkward, but now I'm 18 and I talk to my mom like I would to my best friend, even a little bit more then I would with my friends, because she understands and doesn't freak out about it. My parents didn't give me the sex talk, they just answered me as honestly as possible that didn't make either of us uncomfortable. My dad doesn't really talk to me about it, just said that he would buy me protection when I was ready and to make sure I was ready. But I'm kinky and my mom is kinky, so I go to her when I want a suggestion on something to try, or if I'm worried or scared about something. We are very open, and its ok. But then, my mom is my best friend, so maybe it isn't the most common situation.
