They did not specifically tell me anything, because I already knew everything at an early age. Read the 101 Questions about sex book when I was 9. And I was a late bloomer and didn't need to learn too soon anyway.

Sex didn't feel like a big deal in my family. It's nice but not all that captivating or rewarding or secretive. Sex is like eating a good dinner with relatives. If I didn't manage to go and just watched TV instead that's OK, too. There are things in life much more exciting. I suppose it could be much more important to someone with strong sex drive and live with parents who forbid it.

No.

Back in the 60s and 70s you were just expected to figure it out. That was true for many things back then.

I can’t recall ever having any discussion about it. I expect if I had had any sort of romantic relationship, my parents might have had a discussion with me, but probably deemed it unnecessary because I have exactly zero interest in any sort of intimate activity. Even the thought of open-mouthed kissing is still repulsive to me. I don’t even remember how or when I first learned about it, I guess it didn’t seem any more noteworthy to me than any other bit of knowledge :lol:

Not really. My Dad would blush and say "Ask your Mother" and my Mum would blush and say "Ask your Father" and so I got nowhere when I asked. I was told to borrow a book from the library, but I did not know what to ask about whatbook so I didn't get a book.
I remember when I was about 15 and my Dad said "Never let me hear of you playing with girls" so I broke all friendships with girls in school and kept away from them as I did not know what my Dad meant.
