I am sure there are lots of parents who find it difficult to talk about sex or any sex related knowledge with their grownup kid. This can be embarrassing sometimes but it is important for them. Can anybody share any nice tip regarding the subject ?

I have a 24 yr old DD and that wouldn't describe her or any of her female friends--I wonder where they found these young women.  Most of them have or had regular boyfriends.  It was never considered cool or appropriate to just have sex although they probably have a more casual attitude toward having sex.  But is woman having careers something new?  I was in college in the 70's and feminist ideas were certainly being discussed then and most women were going to have careers.  Even when I was in law school (50% women) there were many women who were in relationships--I knew a few women who were pregnant and taking the bar exam.

We also drink wine every night and have tried to introduce our kids to it (perfectly legal at home) just so they aren't tempted to go wild in college or to accidentally drink more than they can handle. DS hates alcohol and won't go near it; DD likes certain wines, but hates beer. We've told her that if she chooses to drink in college to never have more than 2-- I don't think that will be a problem, as she says more than half a glass makes her dizzy--and to never put her drink down.

We've been talking about this stuff, as well as sex, for years. Years ago, when she was maybe 12, she put her can of fizzy water down at a family pool party, then came up to me as I was chatting with the hostess and asked if it was still safe to drink it. Because you just never know with those 10 year old boys....
