    We were lucky to have had 2 sons & never had to deal with wild & boy crazy daughters. Some parts of this message thread reminds me of my favorite old TV Show, "Married With Children." This TV show magnified on all the nightmares that people experience in real life and then some. I suspect this show was responsible for more than a few confirmed bachelors!

    Poor old wife never got enough sex, lazy as sin, spending money like crazy, daughter was running wild with creepy guys, son was a constant horn dog. All had their hands out for money, and the old man on minimum wage. In-laws were terrible, neighbors a constant pain in the _ss. You name it, every horror you could imagine was in this show.

    I never had the time to watch this show when it was 1st run. But now with DVR-TV I can record all the shows I missed. It is even more fun to watch now that our kids are grown and out of our hair, and we can really relate to many of the horrors. IMO, watching this old TV show is great therapy ;--)) Also why it is soooo funny.

For some reason - seriously - I have to be careful with the good dark chocolate. Sometimes I feel like I've been given a female version of viagra, cuz the feeling sticks around sometimes longer than I want it to! It's pretty obvious it does something to me, and it did not before I ate primally (always been a fan of the dark stuff).
    Chocolate increases dopamine levels, which increases arousal/libido.

    For a fabulous chocolatey treat (mmmmmmmm) combine an avocado, a scoop of cocoa powder, some frozen raspberries, splash of vanilla extract, and a dash of stevia (all this to taste) in a food processor--blend until creamy. Um--YUM! It's my new favorite 'treat'. Soooooo good. Could be applied to a partner's body if you wanted as well...(trying to stick with the theme of the thread here )

    ETA: Add a little cold water to thin it out if needed while blending.

    I LOVED that show, but only the first couple seasons. It went downhill quickly after Jefferson appeared and all that. It was a forbidden show (by Mom) growing up, but I watched it a lot (with my Dad, which I found hilarious even back then.) I still catch episodes when I can.

    Geostump.. as a mom myself (of an 18 year old daughter)... she used to look at me funny when I would talk about sex (usually just in passing, but I never made an effort to stop decent conversation), and I know she was embarrassed. But she knows that it's something that's of interest to me and I have some knowledge about (I was a "toy" saleswoman for 5-1/2 years, and am now in school to get my degree as a counselor, eventually to be a couples/individual therapist specializing in sex therapy). And I just kept doing it, as if sex was like any other health related subject. When the time came that she needed some information, she asked me. It was uncomfortable for her, I could tell, but I answered honestly and gave her some personal information. Then I gave her a book I had (The Guide to Getting It On) which is one of the best overall sex/body/self books out there.

    Now it's not like we talk about sex all of the time, we don't. But if she has a question, she knows she can ask me about it.

    My grandparents got me one of those anatomy/ "your body's changing" books when I was 10. I read through it, but glossed over the puberty in favor of the other topics. Around middle school there was an entire week of science class dedicated to puberty/ sex ed/ whatever. Same in HS Health class, except it was a month. I already had a pretty good idea about sex, just because I grew up in a not so savory part of the city, my parents stopped changing the channel when sex stuff came on when I was about 12, and I had an encyclopedia set. Anything else I had questions on, I asked Dad because we'd always treated sex/ body stuff as a science topic. If Dad didn't have an/ want to answer, he'd send me to Mom.
    when I got my menarche, I had a pretty god idea of what was going on because Mom was pretty open to us kids about what went on during that TOM. I knew where she kept her supplies and went and tended to business, then went and told Mom.
    I guess my family's always been pretty matter of fact about sex and such. Quiet, but matter of fact. We were never taught any shame or anything to go with it, it just was.

    My oldest daughter started her cycle just a few months back. I told her several times that when she does start, she needed to let me know. I didn't even know until after the fact. To say the least, I felt devastated. I've always been very open with the girls in regards to the changes that they will be going through but for some reason, I cannot connect at all with my oldest daughter. My husband refuses to talk to them about this. I'm really beginning to think that there should be classes for parents such as my husband and I on how to discuss sex with kids. My husband and I our such odd people sexually with our experiences nowadays that I would have no clue how to talk to them.

    I think this is the key. Sex is not something that you sit down to explain to your kids when they're 13, by then they will have heard it all anyway. Sex should be an on-going dialogue with your kids from a very young age. My kids are 5 and 7 and we talk about it. Not much, but when they have questions I give them age appropriate answers. They know, for example, that babies happen when dad puts a seed in mum's tummy during sex, my daughter knows about periods and that she's going to get hers one day. My boys know why they get erections and why it feels nice when they play with them.

    I'm determined that my kids are going to grow up with knowledge, respect for their own and other people's bodies and as few hang-ups about sex as I can manage.

    I have done that with my girls, I'll answer their questions. I never asked questions because I read a lot of books when I was younger. I just know with my oldest daugther, I can't seem to get through to her.
