4. Sexual Abuse From the time your children (daughters or sons) are able to understand ownership, they should know that their body belongs to them. Talking about sexual abuse, whether it’s happened or not, is a tough subject because it’s scary and painful to think about. Have an age-appropriate conversation with your child about allowing others to touch her and how it should feel—never scary, painful, or secretive—on a regular basis.
5. Anal Sex Break the seal (pun intended) for deeper discussions about sex in the future by talking about anal sex. As it turns out, many women find pleasure in anal stimulation and even full-on intercourse. Whether you’re one of them or not, talking about anal sex is important since doing it can introduce some more complicated hygiene and safe-sex practices to prevent illness and infection.
