My mom told me outright when I was like 6... I knew it had involved the penis and vagina, just not what was done with them, when told, I had the biggest "OHHH! Duh." moment of all time.

Oh you BET i got the talk. More than just a talk actually. My mom sat me and all my siblings down, and she showed us a book.

The book described what sex was with DETAILED cartoon pics of Cartoon characters having sex. She explained in full detail and then had us study the book for a week. Very traumatizing, as I was like 9 at the time.

I never really got the talk. I pretty much came across all the information on my own. My parents know very well I know and we speak relatively casually about it when it must be spoken of.

Even though I learned the basics of it on my own, I didn't learn the real scientific bits of conception until around 7th grade health class. It was in no way interesting.

There was talking of starting talking about sex to 4 year olds in primary school here in the UK.

I never had 'the talk' - Although we did have science lessons and they were very awkward.

My "talk" came in the form of a visual dictionary my friends and I were reading in grade 2. We didn't understand all of it... but we were fascinated nonetheless.

No-one in the family ever sat down and told me anything. Sex Education at school was just basically "don't do it" so that didn't help much either. At some point after that I saw some sort of hardcore porn magazine and then I understood everything a lot better.

I fortunately never got the talk. An uncle tried when I was 10 but I shot him a nasty look and he shut up. I knew basically everything by the time I was 7. It sucked because I was ridiculed by the purposely kept ignorant children. I rubbed it in their faces when they found out I was right all along.

Two friends got the talk but they don't like talking about it.
Ahem sorry forgive me :)


Anyway im startled by the amount of people here who have actually had the talk, as I know nobody who knows someone who had it.. Weird

I got 'The Talk' from my dad. Although, by that time the school had already explained it all to me in better detail, but I decided to listen to stop him feeling embaressed.

I got something akin to the talk from my da when i turned 18. I already knew everything but the talk still occured.

Consisted of "I'll buy you your first pack of three and if you get her pregnant, you're marrying her"

We used to have a satellite dish that picked up German channels. One night my father was flicking through channels and came across a show where a couple were having sex on a stage whilst a crowd cheered them. He paused on it for about a minute and then carried on channel surfing, adding "don't be ashamed of sex". This seems like a decent way to handle it. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video clip has to be worth a shit load.

I found a book in the playroom in my local church when I was eleven. It taught me the basics, and I just thought "Oh, so that's how it happens." The talk? Thank the Lord, no.

I got "The Talk" at the age of six, although it was never summed up in ONE talk.

Just gave me a book "Sex and you" with some truely disturbing pictures. I did find out about it that way, and it has been a part of my upbringing from the day I could understand what it was.

My family, in particular my mother, is a bit strange. We're rather open. I was introduced to innuendo at the age of four. By the kitchen table. But I've never had a normal 'the talk' with anybody, I figured that out on my own when puberty hit, more or less.

I did find my older brother's 'magazines', but I was young and didn't know the difference between 'generic woman' and 'naked chick', so that was alright.

my talk was basically "If you get a girl pregnant you'll be stuck with a little bastard and be paying child support out the ass for the rest of your life, so don't have sex" thanks dad!
