Uncle Red, why are you and my Aunty wrestling with no clothes on?
How old is old enough to start talking to your kids about sex?
I ask this because I have an eight year old nephew who recently asked my sister what a pussy is.
When she told me this I could not help but smile,because that is my little man, ya know?
But I got to thinking.... Where did this little dude hear the word "pussy" and who was he around when he heard it?
Now I kinda consider my nephew my son, since I do not have one yet. So I guess I can speak for all men out there when I say that I was kinda of proud of my little man when I found this out.
I know, I know, that sounds so wrong, but every man wants his son to be interested in women. That is just how we are.
I also know that if my daughter ever asked me what a "dick" is, well there is going to be some repercussions. My daughter better not even start to form the letter D until she is 35 years old. Again I know that sounds so double standard, but if I ever have a daughter, every time I look at her I am going to think about all the things I have did to all the "daughter's" I have known over the years and well....
I'll just be double standard, OK? So sue me.
Anyways back to my question... How young is too young and how old is too old?
Even I have to admit that 8 years old is too young to be asking about pussies.
But with today's society, with sex everywhere, when does a parent start to prepare his child?
How do you explain to an 8 year old child that a man does not go around having sex with any and every woman that comes his way?
How do you explain to an 8 year old child that sex should only be between 2 people that love each other, that a woman's body is the most precious thing that she can ever give away to someone, and that if you are the one she chooses to give it to, you do not mistreat her?
Will an 8 year old child understand that sex is not a game?
Will he understand that having sex with multiple women does not define what a man is?
Will he understand that women are a gift from God and they should be treated as such?
Will he understand that "pussy" and "dick" are slang for Penis and Vagina?
How do you explain all this to an 8 year old child in ways that an 8 year old mind can understand?
Will he understand that sex can kill you if you do not protect yourself?
How can you explain this to any child, from 8 to 80? Maybe it is a good thing I don't have any kids yet.
But my sister has tasked me to talk to my little man. I guess she thinks I can tell him what he needs to know.
If it were up to me he would have to wait until he is 35 also.
But we all know that if I don't talk to him, he will see that new Burger King Commercial with the theme from baby's got back. Maybe that is where he heard the word "pussy".
Ain't that some shit? Now they even got Sponge Bob doing the "butt".
