Do Tell: When Do You Stop Sharing Details About Your Sex Life?

In the beginning of a relationship, it's fun to share your experiences with your girlfriends — like what you did on your date, if he's a good kisser, even how the sex was the first time! But there's an element of privacy one usually desires once the relationship hits a certain level. That time is different for everyone so do tell, when do you stop divulging those intimate details with your friends?

My sister and I (just over 3 years age difference) are very close and discus everything but I would discuss with very few friends.

I only talk about my sex life with my best friend and usually I don't go into detail. I usually say something like it was great last night or he did his thing. My grandmother used to tell me to be careful about which women you tell these things to because some of them will want to find out for themselves.

I have a friend who has NO boundaries when it comes to what she will talk about, and not just when we are chatting, we could be with a group of people, some of which she JUST met! Girl has no filter, and says IM a prude bc I roll my eyes and tell her I dont want to hear the intimate details of her sex life with her boyfriend(they have been together for over 4 years, you would think she would stop blabbing to anyone that will listen). She doesnt understand when I try to explain to her that I personally dont want to share details of my sex life with my husband with random people. Meanwhile she will announce to a whole house full of people that she wants to go home and f*ck her boyfriend (no joke this actually happened- I was mortified bc I brought her to the party, she was meeting some of my friends from high school for the first time, they thought she was crazy)

I never ever talk about my sex life with anyone. It's private and not anyone else's business.

My boyfriend is the same and it's only with close friends of the two of us. They honestly don't want to know that much!!

I have worked in and around sexual health for about 8 years so NOTHING is really all that embarrassing for me to talk about now in regards to sex. I'll stop when they have heard enough. :)

Yeah, I never will talk about my sex life ever. I just think it's inappropriate and sort of a violation of trust. One topic leads to other topics about how big his junk is, or how long he can go, etc...and I'm not about to go critiquing my mans every move for other people, that's just very high school. If my BF did this, I'd be absolutely furious.

I agree with an earlier post. If its not really serious at all, Ill tell my girlfriends about some stuff.. like if he's a good kisser, etc etc But I have never told anyone any details about my boyfriend now. I dont know, it was like the second I met him I knew it was going to work out- and I feel like its something special that just the two of us talk about. Like a secret club ;)

I only tell my two best friends, but I tell them separate things about my sex life. My married best friend I tell all the cute romantic stuff to and then my crazy college best friend I tell all the skanky adventures to so it works well. I don't get too graphic cause that's just uncalled for really...

If there is a certain thing I need to talk about I go to my sister, I don't share with others. That is just wayyy to much information!

I rarely do, and if/when it's not often and only with maybe 2 people. (very close friends)

I just don't think it's right to talk about that stuff. I don't like to hear about it either, so why would I want to talk about it too. Also that's how really bad lies and rumors can start.

I draw the line when it comes to sharing details regarding my sex life.It is not open for discussion with family or friends except for my husband and never was.

My best friend and I really don't share the private intimate details. She's married and I'm still single. The most we'll talk about is if I'm in a new relationship if we've gone that far yet and I'll reply with a simple yes or no. The most she tells me is married sex is awesome.

when it wasn't serious and it was just someone i was hanging out with my friends were super interested in everything that went on... what i wore what we ate, where we went, what we did etc... when its more of a relationship my friends are good about not asking questions after the beginning of the relationship and even when i give details its never about our sex life. i'm sure they can figure that out on their own. i don't need to share private intimate details about my life with my boyfriend with my friends.

don't have a really active sex life but I used to spill out my dating life's details(especially with the new guy) with a colleague of mine who was supposedly a good friend, and when I felt/noticed that she might be blabbering these stories to someone else in the office and also made them get quite comfortable with me (sexual innuendos, funny but dirty looks etc..) that's when I stopped right there and blew him off.. Now she's acting oh so sad and not talking to me like before. To hell with them, I no longer spill the beans to ANYONE even my best friend for life since childhood. They say cover for your candle and it will stay lighted!

That's not something you discuss with friends kissing and telling is just wrong.

I didn't think most people talked explicitly about their sex lives anyway...maybe I and all the people I know are just prudes, but I've never heard anybody talk or even hint about how the sex is - unless they got pregnant, were cheated on, or they/their partner is known to be promiscuous (and even then it's SOMEBODY ELSE telling their business!). Silence is probably the best policy here. :/

I don't go into detail either. I tend to think that people that go on and on about their sex lives are usually embellishing, filling in the gaps. Plus, it's personal, I wouldn't want my SO talking to his buddies about my technique either.

I stopped talking about my sex life when I realized ~other~ people were talking about my sex life. And that creeped me out enough to make me take a vow of silence.

I never tell anybody about my sex life because I really do not think that it is anybody business.

I will be brief like "it was good" because I just started having sex, but I think once it is nothing new, I won't really say much, it is very private, so definitely nothing graphic, just general.
