Nope. I discovered it on my own as a child through porn my friends stole.

I voted no, because I do not consider "If you have sex, you will get pregnant and go to hell" to count.

Yes, my mom told my sister and I the mechanics of sex and how it created a baby. I learned about things like orgasms and foreplay from fanfiction.

Hahahaha, this is about how my sexual education came about, as well.

Mine didn't. I really don't know/remember how I learned about sex!

My mom went over conception and pregnancy and birth control and periods and all the biological stuff. What was never covered was the emotional aspects of sexuality. How to know when you're ready (when you're married - duh!), how to tell the difference between real feelings and lust, how to work at a relationship to make sure both partners are sexually satisfied.

Basically I'd like to go back and introduce Dan Savage to teenage me.

My mom started talking to me at a young age. She had picture books and everything. Then she continued to talk to me over and over and over until I moved out. LOL She even had pictures of what STDs looked like printed up. Lovely. She told me how one got pregnant and promptly put me on birth control when I started having sex.

I didn't get the talk, but I wasn't left completely clueless. Around age 8 or 9 my dad handed me a book (Dr. Ruth Talks to Kids, or something like that) to read. Honestly, I think that was the better option for me, and the book was pretty informative, though the subject of sex has never been taboo in my family and I could have asked questions if I needed to.

My dad tried, but he gave up when he realized I knew more than he did.

No he didn't. I don't blame him though, it must be pretty awkward for a single dad to talk to a teenage girl about sex.

No, my parents never did. I'm sure it would have been awkward so I'm kind of happy they didn't.

I don't really remember. I think I may have asked about what I was told from others, but I got my education from other kids in the neighborhood that had older siblings as well as my older cousin while playing with Barbies one day, gotta love other people's kids. I just knew better than to wind up pregnant in high school, I was too scared of my mom. Not that she was horrible,abusive or anything....she just had that LOOK and you just KNOW to act right. I'm close enough with my mom that I told her shortly after I became sexually active so I could get birth control.

I learned about the basic biology of how babies were made from my mom and all about puberty, just not the whole how sperm got into a woman to begin with. I learned about sex from an encyclopedia and had no real idea how it actually worked until I was maybe 16. I was so misguided I thought that most people participated in watersports. But now I am pretty well informed, I hope.

WOW. and they dare to call FUTURE generations irresponsible? it's simply a repercussion of their own lack of parenting.

"ish" only vaguely and only by using the world book encyclopedia and only because the school was doing something the next day.

Mine said, "Do you know about sex?"

I said, "Yes."

They said, "Okay."

That was it.
