I will not be an active participant in spreading disease. Therefore, since age 25, I have had sex exactly zero times. I tried raising the issue with dates, but that was not very pleasant and I had the darnedest time finding someone who already had warts. No warts dating site out there, unfortunately. I have thought about making an internet million with the idea but I can't find any backers. I eventually stopped trying and stopped asking girls out around 27. Now I am 42 and Diabetes brings its own challenges.

    As good as it feels, advise your daughter to think twice about being loose and always use a condom.

    As uncomfortable as it will be for me and my children, I will feel obligated to ensure my children get a proper education about sex and sexual subjects. And I will feel more comfortable to know that either me or my wife have educated my children rather than a school teacher or anyone else.

    I wouldn't tell other people when they should teach their kids (not my place to do so), but I plan to educate my kids around the time they reach puberty.

    That's the narrative that has developed, but different attitudes towards nudity does not indicate anything about obsessiveness towards sex. Europeans are at least as sex-obsessed as Americans are.

    I haven't been to Europe in a long time, but I didn't see anything any freer sexually than in the states. I did however, see a lot of social gender inequality.

    It is my understanding that many European countries are both less repressive about sex, and simultaneously less obsessed with it.
    Well I must be from Europe then because sex is overrated. I rather have blueberry pie.

    Re: What is a good age to have the FULL sex talk?

    I think it depends on the child, boy or girl. I got my first "talk" at 9, but it was mainly because I directly asked my mother about "noises" I heard coming from my parents' room the night before (they had forgotten I had went with my aunt to babysit some neighbor kids or thought that I was going to spend the night at my aunts' house). I continued to have open conversations with my mother throughout my teenage years about sex. I think this was definitely good for me, and my mother's method seems to have worked pretty well, since all six of us children have reached adulthood with no high school pregnancies (and I would bet the last of the children in his teens probably won't sire a child in the next two years either). I do think it is important to at least have a talk by age 11, especially with a girl, because most girls start around this age.

    I don't feel like I did a real good job with the whole 'sex education" thing, when it came to my kids.
    But in fact neither one of them got anyone pregnant until adulthood.
    Sometimes I think parents can serve as examples of what not to do.
    I never tried to give them the impression they ruined my life or derailed my plans or anything (they didn't; I didn't have anything in particular planned for my future).
    But their dad is another story. He was much more the "Learn from my mistakes and don't throw away your future like I did" type.
    It may have encouraged them to be more careful.
