Jessica Biel Talks Sex Education With Her Son

Jessica Biel Introduced Her Son to Sex Ed at 2 Years Old, and Yes, It's a Good Idea

Jessica Biel wasted little time getting her 2-year-old son Silas up to speed on sex education. In an effort to promote the PSA video on sex-ed she made with Chelsea Handler, the 35-year old actress shared how she approached the topic with her son.

"I have a 2-and-a-half-year-old [and] we're starting [sexual education] now," she said. "We're using technical terms . . . we shower together, and [we say], 'This is what I've got. This is what you've got,'" she told People. "We just talk about it. I know it's really young, but I really believe that if you start this early, there's no shame."

She also dove into why teaching kids how to understand their bodies should start when they're little. "I don't want to tell him, 'Keep your private parts,' and this and that," she explained, adding, "It's a beautiful thing. You have it and mine is different and it's cool, man. We have to respect ourselves and respect each other. So I believe it starts really young."
