Do You Talk About Your Sex Life With Your Parents?

Kate Hudson and Alex Rodriguez are having some amazing sex, according to US Weekly. (Perhaps that's why she's his good luck charm.) The sex is so great, that the actress's friend says Kate "gets graphic talking about his body, even to her parents." Kate doesn't exactly have a conventional parental relationship with parents like Goldie and Kurt, so I wouldn't be surprised if this were true. Still, I'm sure Kate's in the minority of people who feel comfortable sharing the details of their amazing sex lives with their parents. Then again, maybe a lot of women have gone to their moms (or dads) at some point in their lives to chat about contraception, their sexual health, or other romantic topics. What about you?

I had my son when I was 16- so evidentlly my parents know I have had sex. My mother and I are like best friends. I go to her for advice about my son, my friends, and life in general. In the past she was not a fan of my boyfriends, but she does like my current boyfriend very much. She wants to see me in a healthy relationship, one which includes a healthy appettite for sexual intercourse. She doesn't mind if I tell her random quirks in our sex life. She laughs and makes jokes with me. How we look at it is, we are both adults, both women, and we have both had sex. It really is no different than talking to your friends about it. Then again, I was raised in an area where you can speak very freely about anything and no one thinks it is weird or outrageous....

I grew up in a house where my parents idea was... "If your gonna do it, don't hide it". At the age of 15 I came out of the "closet" and told my mom I liked girls and that I had recently obtained a girlfriend. My mom was awesome about it and offered me to bring her over. My parents are really awesome about the whole ordeal and hell, she has even tried to find a few for me. I love my parents and I love this aspect of our relationship.

no. my parents can barely deal with the fact that i'm gay, so going into detail about my sex life would be excrutiating on both our parts.

My mom knows I have sex, knows I am on birth control (for many years, now). She won't say a peep about it, and nor will I. Once, I found my parents sex toys when they were married, and it was horrifying because I don't care to know extra details about my parents sex lives. I think it's cool that people can be open with their parents about sex. Like, a mother-daughter type thing. I don't think it's appropriate to talk in detail, but I have known people who have talked about sex with their moms, in regards to not getting enough or something, but not any details thrown in. I don't even think I would go down that alley...I like my privacy.

I voted sometimes. As in sometimes my mom tries to talk to me about my sex life! It's not something that I care to share with her.

I'm pretty open with my parents... my mom was one of the first people I told when I lost my virginity, because it was a big stepping stone in my life and I wanted her to be aware of it. Every now and then I ask her for advice about my husband's and my relationship - is our dry spell normal? that kind of thing - but I'd NEVER talk to her about specifics. Our conversations stay very, very general. But she and my dad have one of the best marriages I've ever seen; why wouldn't I discuss my relationships with her?

No, that's weird and uncomfortable. My mom knows I have sex and that I'm on birth control, but it doesn't go beyond that.

NOOOOOOOOO nonono way. I'm cringing just thinking about it. Sure, they know I have sex and hey, they are my parents, i know they've had sex. But we don't need to talk to each other about it, much less describe it in graphic detail. *shudder*

Also, "talking graphically about it" may need to be taken with a grain of salt. She could have just told her mom that he had a cute butt or something, which I would still never do but you know...

My mother knows that my brother and I *have* sex lives, and she's never cared about us living with our significant others, which is great. And like Snookyx, I've always had a very open dialogue with my mom about birth control/reproductive health. But the act itself? Hells no.

I have a very open relationship with my parents but the most we ever talked about was starting BC.

No-- at least I try not to. My mother is a very open person, though, and she hasn't shared a lot about her sex life with me but she has with my husband and that tends to get back to me later. It's a little creepy. She's also tried to get me to talk about my own sex life before, but at least she respects that I enjoy my privacy and she never pushes me about it. I don't even talk to my best friends about it. The only time I really brought the subject up with my mother was when I needed to go on the pill, and that was because I was underage and on her insurance.
