How specific should I be when talking about sex with my 11 year old daughter?
I never ever exposed her at home to anything that might give her an idea to ask about it. No movies, no internet (except some parts of youtube). Never. My husband and I are extremely cautious.
Now she asked me what is sex. Sex? Yeah, what is sex and what is porno? I swallowed hard and ...and I couldn't come up with anything real. So, I said quickly, "sex is a physical form of attachment for adults". What did I just say? I have no idea, but I felt like brushing my teeth might give me a break from talking.
My fear was: how much did she know about these topics?
So, I saw your answer about the other mother whose daughter asked the same Q. I am looking for specificalties in your answer and couldn't find them.
So, my humble question to you is:
Daughter: Mommy, what does sex mean? And porn is a movie about what?
Me: Sex means......
What exactly should I tell her? How much?
Oh, God! Tough one. Please help before she'll find out some way from her peers/school.
Thanks a bunch!
