Not the topic I expected

One mother is a historian who's particular specialty is rape trials during the 18th century. At one point she discussed a bit about her research. The words rape & virgin were thrown around a bit. The discusion was about the politics and social implications of these topics and only midly inapropriate. It did start my DD wondering what on earth we were talking about. When the subject died down I did make a comment about the subject being a bit "confusing" to my DD and she tried to explain what a trial was to my daughter. I am not sure if she got my point or was leaving the more interesting details for me to fill in.
So since I did have some one-on-one time with DD this evening I asked her what she thought. She was currious what were were talking about... so I did give her a brief description of both words. All I had to do was mention the S*x word and she thought it was yucky and didn't want to discuss it much further. But at least she now knows a very basic meaning of those words. At least I was able to use it as a teachable moment.
What a doozy..
