How do I, as a now-adult raised in a conservative, anti-sex, “body = shame” household, adjust to be able to be open and honest about this stuff? I don’t want my kids to grow up hiding stuff and getting themselves into bad situations like I did. As an example, I was too embarrassed to even go buy my first bra with my mom because she was so closed off to “sensitive” topics. I ended up in a manipulative relationship and didn’t have anyone to turn to to talk about sex and what was normal and natural. How do I create an open and honest household when I still feel awkward and shameful about this topic? Thanks!

Thanks for the links! I don’t have kids yet but I want to be in the right place for these discussions when they come up. Thanks for the ama!

Thank you for your response! I don’t have kids yet but when I do maybe their open and honest curiosity without judgement will help me relax more about it. And in the meantime I can check out podcasts and the resources mentioned by op.
