I'm not a parent. Yet I seem to have given the safe sex talk (and the physiological and mechanical explanations) that go along with that too many times. Some people seem to think leaving that to 'their peers' is fine.
Those parents are idiots.
Just today I was yelling at one of my idiotic friends who thinks sex without being on the pill is fine because most of the time they use condoms. Except she doesn't supply the condoms, so if they run out, oh well, and we all know just how easily they can rip.
The worst part is the earth is over populated and the people with an IQ too low to figure out how to use a condom or get the pill ARE NOT the people I feel will produce the fittest offspring for my species. YES I'm being a bitch saying that but it's not a bloody lie, is it?!
NOT all peers will give GOOD sex advice. I know some guys who only recommend condom-free sex as it feels better. Idiots.
NOT all peers (LIKE ME!) WANT your kid running to them every time they have unprotected sex because YOU weren't clear enough at a young age how important condoms are! IT'S NOT MY JOB. Also when word gets around you know what you're talking about, more and more people come to you.
Just to note, I got no sex talk. What I learned I got from a highschool textbook (I was about 8, my granddad always gave me textbooks and chocolate as gifts, it's wasn't from school). From there I searched online and read about STDs and found more books. My dad found a corner of a sweet wrapper when I was 16 and didn't speak to me for days because he thought it was the corner of a condom wrapper.
