You can’t control the universe and hide erotic stuff from your child, but you can talk to her about sex when she’s little.
It might surprise most to learn that my free loving hippie lesbian mother never had "the talk" with me.
I'm not sure how to talk to my kid about sex, so I asked the xoJane editors for their own "sex talk" stories.
There was no pretending that my wildly promiscuous young mother was wailing because she was suffering through another bout of lower back pain. I knew.
