I had to look up the meaning of double penetration. I had to look up the meaning of thunder beads. I’m clueless. I’m not a user of either and I HOPE ALL TO HELL the little woman isn’t either. We got one toy in my bedroom and it don’t need batteries.

Okay, real quick answer: Thunder beads are used by Tibetan monks in the ceremony of praying for rain.


I've been lurking for a few months, but I need to come out of the closet, so to speak. Thank you for the best laugh I've had all year!


This encounter reminds me of the time I was trying to explain some sexual thing to Grace and I mentioned missionary position. She covered her face with her hands and said, "There's more than one position?" Oh, I had careened wildly!

I saw that movie, and can't even remember which one it was. I remember the scene because I had no idea what thunder beads were. I still don't, and am afraid to google it. I'm such a prude.

My hubby is unwilling to deflect any question, so he told my persistent 5 year old "the man puts his penis into the woman's vagina". I heard about this later and about died. If you didn't go there, you're probably okay.


Oh flip. I would have just wet myself as I laughed myself silly. My kids just die of shame now and won't ask me ANYTHING. It's kinda handy. Thanks for the laugh.


I would be prone to all three, most definitely including over-explaining. So far, with my persistent five yr old, I have deflected deflected deflected. "Yes but HOW does the baby get out?" is a very difficult question that I have skilfully avoided answering several times now. Most because I am pretty sure that if I give a real answer, it will immediately be followed by "Yes, but HOW did the baby get IN?" which I am in no way prepared to answer for him yet. Or possibly ever.


When my five year old daughter asked me how her baby brother got into my stomach, I panicked and told her, "Daddy knows magic."

Lame, lame, lame!


We had that converstaion or one very like it during another PG 13 movie, Just Married with Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy. Oh it's all fun and games until something they plug into the wall at the 12th century castle they are honeymooning at causes the electric to go out all over Belgium. Wasn't that a hair dryer? I remember saying as blankly as possible...

no no no no no no...

Tell me what movie so that I can avoid it.

The movie was "Made of Honor" (PG-13) and if I had done my homework, the warnings were all there...



wow. I said to my daughter yesterday, " I don't understand why boys manage to pee all over the toilet seat, I mean...they've got POINTERS"

Her response "I wish you wouldn't say stuff like that to me"

Send help. I think I'm careening into the shoals of TMI


'...one stammer away from describing double penetration.' Oh, Jayzus--I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. Please thank your husband for me.

"When my five year old daughter asked me how her baby brother got into my stomach, I panicked and told her, 'Daddy knows magic'."

Sooner or later, you're going to have to explain to her about his "magic wand." Good luck.


I give all the questions to my husband. While he gives way too much info, I sit there quietly and turn nine shades of red...


Well - well- well.. I guess this movie has created lots of teenage questions, as my 13 year old daughter and I were watching - I too got the question "what are thunder beads".??

My response: with a grin on my face- because let's face it kids talk about these things better she know the right answer- ( as I recall being educated in what a "Twinkie" was- I googled the answer and discretly showed it to my daughter - she read, looked at me wide eyed and said - EWE!!! ( thank god- for that answer)in which I replied " any questions??"

And so question asked - answer delivered and myself and google wait patiently for the next question ;)

Thank god for the Internet!!!!!!
