Most parents are really worried that their kids are going to say to them when did you have sex for the first time. So you have some choices to make and you need to decide about how you are going to answer this before your child asks you that question. So you can say something like what a great question. When I look back on my life and I think about the choices I made when I was a young person in terms of my sexual partners and that sort of thing, what I hope for you is blah, blah, blah. Whatever you hope for them. You can also be straight up and say I was in love the first time I had sex. My boyfriend and I protection. We were in a safe place. And I made a great decision. I had a great wonderful time with him and I am really proud of the choices I made. And you can also say I am really not comfortable talking about my personal sex life with you. Now, that being said, you really don´t have to talk to your kids about your personal sex life. Just like you don´t want to hear about your parents´sex life, your kids really do not want to know about your sex life.

Sex Education Expert

Despite her 16 years of experience as a sexual health educator, Amy Lang found herself completely tongue-tied when her four year old son had "something very important" to tell her about his penis. Shocked by her discomfort, she realized if she was struggling, other parents must be too. Amy also holds an MA in Applied Behavioral Science and her focus was in adult education and group facilitation. She decided to combine her love of sex talking and her love of working with adults and started Birds + Bees + Kids in 2006.

Amy is a three time Mom’s Choice Award winner for her book, Birds + Bees + YOUR Kids - A Guide To Sharing Your Beliefs About Sexuality, Love and Relationships and DVD, Birds + Bees + Kids - The Basics. She is also the author of the book, Say What?! The Birds + Bees for Progressive Parents - What to Say and How to Say It!

She has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Seattle Magazine, Parent Map magazine and has contributed to a gazillion other publications. Sex advice guru Dan Savage says “Amy is a parent’s best friend-with-benefits when it comes to talking to kids about sex.” 

Though Birds + Bees + Kids, Amy helps parents of all beliefs have easy, open and effective conversations about sexuality, love and relationships with their kids. She offers talks, workshops, one-on-one consultations and live webcasts. Amy is also the co-founder of MamaCON - Inspiration and Tools for Modern Moms, a conference supporting the hard work of moms everywhere.
