Recently, our son lost a little bit of his innocence. He's been asking questions about babies, especially the mechanics involved, and we figure it's better to get the information from us, especially since it gives us the ability to frame the discussion and control the narrative (Army FM 3-13, Information Operations). So we had "the Talk" with him. After answering his questions (and I had to really hold my tongue on the "When the semen comes out, does it hurt?" question.) (My initial response, "No. As a matter of fact, once you hit puberty, it becomes the focal point of your next 20 years." was edited down to "No.")

The best part, when all was said, done, and understood, his reaction was "it sounds gross."

Maybe we'l try this with my Daughter, when the time comes...
