I think Indians make a mountain out of molehill when it comes to their children having sex.
Sex is a normal function and it is inevitable that your children will have sex with or without your consent. I never understood how a country that was so open about sex, ( west never had Kamasutra, never had temples dedicated to erotic sculptures like in Khajuraho) became one where talking about sex itself became taboo.
This is what I told my children about sex.
Age of consent. In Queensland, age of consent is 16 and it is a law. I explained to them why it is needed and what could happen if they break the law.
Rape. No one ever have a right to force themselves on another person. If a girl says no, it means No and if a boy continued to force himself on a girl, then it is rape. The reverse is also true
Pregnancy. I explained to my children that one of the biggest side effect of having sex is pregnancy. There is only one method of contraception that is 100% safe. That is abstinence. There is no guarantee that any other method of contraception is 100% safe and I expect my children to remember that always.
STD. same as pregnancy. It is another side effect of unprotected sexual intercourse.
Virginity. I explained to them, it is up to them. Their body, they chose what they want to do with it and when and with whom. I am not a keeper of virginity and do not own my children’s body.
Alcohol and GHB. How much ever you trust your mate, keep your drink with you always. GHB is colourless and odourless. If you ever felt dizzy or drunk and you know that you haven’t consumed enough alcohol to be dizzy or drunk, talk to the bartender and ask for help right away or call me. My job is not to judge you, but to keep you safe.
Yes, I do worry about all that could go wrong. But I refuse to control every move my children make so I could stop them from having sex when they reach legal age of consent.
