A serious question. AngryBlackBitch (I worship her!) writes about the push in Missouri for "abstinence only" sexual education. Moral idiots think that teenagers will magically stop having sex if you don't explain basic biology and birth control, and instead push their religion-based philosophy on you. They want parents to teach sex ed at home.

Now when I was a child, perhaps 4 or 5, my mother told me people made babies by kissing. This was the ONLY time sex ed was discussed at home. I grew up on a farm so basic biology was perhaps a bit easier to comprehend.

Another anecdote- my friend Gregg's father was a medical doctor. One time at a restaurant his parents started discussing how sexual education should never be taught at school, only at home. Gregg interrupted them to point out that his father, who was a doctor after all, had not ONCE discussed sex with any of the five or six sons. "If you couldn't discuss this, and you are a doctor, why do you expect other parents to do so?" The parental units immediately changed the subject.

So an informal poll, dear readers, did your parents talk to you about the birds and bees? If so, was the information accurate? If not, where did you learn about the subject?
