Thirteen: The Sex Talks, Plural

Why in English it's called The Sex Talk is a mystery. I'm finding it's a series of talks. And talks. And talks. And talks. Talks about what it feels like. Talks about the mechanics. Talks about anatomy. Talks about etymology (uterus in Japanese is Child Palace, Child Sanctuary). Talks about safety. Talks about being able to say anything, any time. Talks about connection. Talks about the first time. Talks about saying yes. Talks about saying no. Talks about asking questions. Talks about love hotels (remembering a sign and prices, she asks “does 3H mean you're connected down there for 3 hours???!”) Talks with demonstrations with long socks rolled flat into a donut with just the toes sticking out. Talks about how many times I've done it. Talks about whether my mom knows I've done it, why not, and why I want our relationship to be different. Talks about whether I talked to my mom about it at her age, and why not. Talks about barriers. Talks about boundaries. Talks about faire l'amour vs doing it. Talks about being cared for, being given to and being made feel safe. Talks about caring for, giving to, and making ourselves and our partners feel safe. Talks about being yourself. Talks about the idea of normalcy. And the list goes on.
