I couldnt even believe this one. Me and my FI were talking about some sex stuff the other day and most of it, he had no idea what I was talking about. i had to explain a ton of stuff, most of it really basic stuff that everyone by his age should know. I basiclly had to give him the whole sex talk! He said his parents never gave him the sex talk when he was young so everything he knows is just what he’s picked up from movies or from kids in school so not much. He didnt even know whats in him for organs and stuff. I can understand for not knowing whats in a woman since he’s an only child and im his first gf, but he should at least know what he’s got! i went to medical assistant school and my mom was very good about telling me and my sister everything when we were young so I was fully prepared. And some stuff i’ve had to explain in the past like the first time i got my period since we were dating and trying to explain that. he calls it being “broken.” and the first time we fooled around when he first discovered woman have 3 holes down there. This is sure going to be interesting we get to having a baby someday. hes gonna be lost. I just couldnt believe that a man his age know nothing about this kind of stuff.

@jbbs1222: wait… what?! How old is he? Did he go to a regular school because usually they teach anatomy in health class.

Hmm. Well that’s different. I mean, didn’t he ever get curious and google it?

For some reason this makes me uncomfortable. It would remind me of fooling around with a child. I agree with PP, how old is he? He didn’t know there were three holes? Does he know where babies come from?

@jbbs1222: i actually think it’s pretty cool that you are the one to teach him the facts on this topic. cheers to you! so many people grow up exposed to all kinds of weird (and at times, damaging) myths about anatomy and sexuality. keep it up! it might be a good idea to read some science-based books together on the topic like “our bodies, ourselves” or “taking charge of your fertility” to keep the conversation going in a really healthy way!

@Aquaria: Some school districts (mine included) had parents sign a release form to reach this kind of stuff, my parents were super about sex (pretty sure I knew what it was and why women have periods by the time I was 7/8) so they always signed those forms. Considering his parents never bothered to tell him about it they probably didn’t want him learning about it in school either.
@jbbs1222: I had to explain to a 25 year old (gay) friend of mine about what happens when women have a period, that it’s not just blood but shedding of the lining, the egg, etc. He SHOULD have learned all of this considering he’s taken health and biology in highschool and college but I’m guessing he just blocked it our or didn’t pay attention. I’m sure he understood how his body worked but still, it’s insane how little people know about the human body, or in your FI’s case, their own bodies!

@winstonchurchill: I agree, this does make me feel uncomfortable for some reason.
@jbbs1222: He really knows NOTHING about any sexual organs? Like, I can understand him not knowing sex since hes never done that before… but he didnt even know about reporductive organs and stuff? Has he ever masturbated/know what that is/know why he does it?

He will be 23 in a few weeks. He said his school didnt have a sex ed kind of class which not all schools do. some, especially public ones ina bigger city like this dont. i took a child parenting class at my school with the whole thing of taking home the fake baby that crys so i got it all. lol. he did know some stuff and yes he knew where babies come from. he just thought women are like men that the urine comes out there too. couldnt figure out why there was a need for an extra spot. so yeh this talk got interesting. lol. and on him he understand whats on the outside but he didnt know what was all inside like the organs and tubes and stuff. i think i got him pretty educated now tho. lol

I know some schools are weird about this (grew up in TX, trust me, there were some mixed messages there) but to be 23 and to never have looked this stuff up on the internet…? Weird.

Im sure he’s looked up stuff on the internet. but most guys dont really look up stuff about their organs much less a womans. if they look up anything on the internet its going to be porn and lets face it, thats not exactly the best or most healthy way to learn about sex.

@jbbs1222: I get what you’re saying. It’s not that he didn’t know about sex. He just didn’t know about the plumbing. I think it’s awesome that you were the one who got to teach him. 🙂

jbbs1222: That is just stupid, I am sorry, but it just is. My parents never gave me the sex talk (as I mentioned in another post and why, as mentioned in the other post, that I made sure my kids had or will have the talk around 10) but I knew the basics. I knew what parts people had, that is basic anatomy and I had learned a few things from sex ed in school, I guess thats what my mom relied on. Anyway, even not being educated at a younger age, how did he not (at some point in 23 years) try to find out? Read a book, use the google? Are you one of those teahers sleeping with her students?

MrsUPS: this thread is almost 10 months old and I don’t think the OP even posts on WB anymore.
