How do you have the talk with your kids about sex? What do you say, and how do you say it? In this episode Amy Lang and I discuss how to talk to your kids about sex, including the birds and the bees. We also chat about the importance of using proper terminology for private body parts and the idea that sex is not just for reproduction, but also for pleasure.
"If you're explicit about your values when it comes to sexuality, it helps them make decisions."
