my oldest daughter turned 18 in december and wants me to take her to a store my friend and I have been to a few times. She mentioned it before (I can't wait til I turn 18 so ya'll can take me there) but I thought she was joking around (she just turned 18 and asked when are we taking her). It's not like I've shown her anything that I've

She probably knows they sell more than lingerie.

We've always been very open talking about sex with our sons but it's also how I was brought up and how H was brought up.

I don't know that i could have gone with my step-daughter at that age, but I could now. She was very rebellious between 18 & 21 and we weren't all that close.

Now she's in her late 20s and we do have conversations about sex. It's really wonderful to be able to talk with her, woman to woman. I've never had that kind of relationship with my own mom and doubt I ever will.

Kids are not naive and I'm sure she knows they sell more than lingerie. You should be proud of the fact she feels comfortable to come talk to you about it. As far as her asking what you have or don't have you can tell her that's personal if your not comfortable answering the question. Most kids know boundaries. :) Sex isn't dirty nor are using enhancers and if you try to hide that from her she'll find a way to get it herself. I'd be super proud if my daughter was that comfortable to come talk to me. :)
