My mother does not want to hear about my sex life, and I’m 26. She knew perfectly well that I was having sex with my ex-fiance, and when I first met him she did tell me maybe I’d better get on the pill (which I had been thinking about anyway) but otherwise, she does not want to hear it. I don’t want to hear about HER sex life, either. I do have a close friend who I’ve talked about all of it with.
And I know perfectly well that my parents had sex before they were married because I was an “Oops!” while they were engaged. She admitted this to me last year when I was asking her stuff like “How long WERE you guys engaged, anyway?” and she had to admit that it had been shortened because I was on the way.
