When did your parents introduce you to "the birds and the bees"? I actually never received that talk -- my parents would hint at the fact that having sex without being aware of the repercussions would be a problem, but I never listened because I figured that I was intelligent enough to be abstinent. Boy, was I wrong.
While you were growing up, what lessons did your parents give to you about sex? Not many really -- as mentioned before, my parents just told me to be responsible and to use protection. They also told me to avoid having a child until I was stable (oops). One time unprotected truly is enough to change your life -- I slipped up one single time and well, I have a 21-month daughter, haha. I wouldn't change it for the world, despite how much hardship I had to deal with.
Did your parents encourage you to have sexual relationships with boyfriends or girlfriends? I was with my parents for my first 18 years of my life before moving out for two years, and after I turned 18, they emphasized very strongly that they did not want me engaging in sexual activity. I'm fairly sure that they believed I would try to do it secretively, and I can honestly say that I didn't engage in any activity while I was around them.
Would your parents be accepting with any sexual orientation you choose? I honestly have no idea.
