Susan's son has a girlfriend.
She found this out when he posted it on FB. Susan's son is a boy of few words, so she took advantage of his online self disclosure and asked him some simple questions, all of which he answered.

The following day, Susan had a separate conversation with her social worker girlfriend and as a result has to have a substantive sex talk with her son.

Susan told her son that the sex talk was imminent and allowed him to choose which parent he'd prefer to have it with.


Susan's in the batter's box. She'll let you know how she does.

I admire your tactic. Yes, please keep us posted.

Can you give me the talk too? It might jumpstart my unfortunate celibacy.

Don't use PowerPoint. Sure to alienate.

I was aware of the pending sex talk as my nephew of few words posted that a sex talk was forthcoming on FB.

I believe that miller drinking jesus is actually drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon. As the adult child of an alcoholic, I feel I am an expert on identifying beer brands based on the meerest portion of visible labelling.

Oh, and the sex talk. I talk to my teenager every now and then. He doesn't want to hear it. Ever. One thing I did was buying condoms and put them in his sock drawer. I told him that even if he was not having sex, he should learn how to use a condom so he wouldn't be fumbling and embarressed when he did have sex. I mean, every teen boy is terrified of looking like he doesn't know what he is doing, so prey on that fear and encourage him to know what he is doing even if he isn't doing it.

hmm. what else? Remind him of how irritating he finds his sister. Tell him that unsafe sex can result in having to live with a baby like her all the time. My teen is horrified at the prospect of having a kid like his own siblings and not being able to ever get away from it because it belongs to him.

I can't think of anything else right now, but if I do, I will pop back by :)
Good luck!

use a barbie and ken doll to demonstrate. provide condoms in an embarrassing color/ print. and make sure you talk up the venereal disease aspect.

if none of these tactics prevent him from having sex, at least you've done your best.

I've had to have the Sex talk with my Sister's 3 sons ages 16 - 21, because she prefers to pretend 'nothing like THAT is going on!'
I told her to buy a case of condoms and leave it in their hallway.
I have been their FB friends for years, (actually I think they forgot they 'friended' me years ago!)
They were embarrassed, but we got a few laughs about it and I told them some funny things guys don't know about girls!
I have 2 grown daughters so I know how stupid boys can be!
But WHY is it with all the available info and examples of stupidity are kids still so clueless???
Good Luck!

PS Wimbit, yes that is a PBR in Jesus's hand, I can spot a Schlits can a mile away!!!
