go ask your mother
A new study reveals that girls want to have “the talk” with dear old Dad. Can you imagine? Here’s how it would’ve gone at my house:
Moi: Dad, where do babies come from?
Dad: Go ask your mother.
Moi: Mom told me to ask you.
Dad: If sex doesn’t kill you a baby will. So don’t do it.
But apparently many young women between the ages of 19-21 wish their fathers would’ve shed some light, if not on sexual specifics, at least on the male perspective.
This is something my father did for me even without my asking. From the time I was old enough to wear a training bra and blow my allowance on a Duran Duran poster and a tube of Bonnie Bell lipgloss (which was soon wasted on said poster), my Dad explained to me in no uncertain terms that boys/guys/men “only want one thing, and good girls don’t offer it. End of discussion.”
And it’s true. When Husband gets some loving, I get anything I want. (P.S. It doesn’t make you a
prostitute bad girl if you’re married, right?)
Do you wish your father had told you about birds, bees & boys, or would you (both) have died on the spot?
