LETS TALK BIRDS & BEES:
Its never too late to start the talk
Start with small digestible conversations (around anatomy and boundaries) These conversations will be building blocks to the more complex topics of young adulthood.
Have resources :books, youtube
MODERN DAY PORN
Talk about the internet and "adult images" before they interact with it. Help them be prepared so its not so shocking nor forbidden (shame has a funny way of creating erotic kinks- so forget shame!)
Remind them that it is fantasy and not based on reality. Bodies, genitals, positions are not necessarily realistic.
Feminist "ethical" porn shows consent, discussion on sexual health (condoms) as well as a wider variety of body types. Strange but better this than main stream madness
Everyone blooms at different rates.
Unless there is pain or poor functioning (people have different levels of readiness in being sexual, self-exploring, and shapes and sizes)
(seek a doctor/urologist/endocrinologist if persistent concerns or function)
Consent continues after the yes .... (keep checking in, dont assume anything)
We are in this together (not men against women)
