My nearly 10 year old ds has just asked me how 2 men can have sex bloody Coronation street I explained the sex thing to him a couple of years ago, I subtly cowardly changed the subject, but I could see he was pondering the 'mechanics' he then seemed to have a 'light bulb' moment and hit the nail on the head, I confirmed he was correct, he didn't seem particularly perturbed and has gone to bed to finish Gangsta Granny!

Has anyone else had this question at such a young age? I feel like the very basics of sex is enough at 10 but it seems like everything is happening younger nowadays hmm

A lot of gay men do not have anal sex, just fyi.

Wtf nigella??

Many gay men do not choose to have anal sex but engage in mutual masturbation and Greek style sex (basically rubbing against each other without penetration.)

Nigella, seriously??!!! Jeez

Nigellasdealer, you seem to be confusing homosexuality with paedophilia. hmm

i know i felt terrible that it was TMI

NigellasDealer Mon 17-Mar-14 21:19:18

i knew someone would start that.
ok fine, you send your unsupervised 8 year old boy into a public men's loo and then be all 'right on' about it.

nethunsreject Mon 17-Mar-14 21:19:21

TMI and just bloody homophobic! Ffs, seriously

NigellasDealer Mon 17-Mar-14 21:20:00

ffs i am not homophobic.

Nigella do you really think that men are having sex in all public toilets? Do you think women are in female toilets as well?

Nigella wtf?! Homosexual=pedophile?! You said that like your hand was forced! Fgs would you trust a girl in the girls toilets alone? A boy in the girls toilets?

nethunsreject Mon 17-Mar-14 21:20:36

I wouldn't send him alone to male or female loos (or indeed anywhere I can't see him), nor would I tell him that he was at risk of buggery!

I'm not "starting that". As the patent of a gay son, I find your post fucking offensive. AFWIW, my children went swimming on their own from the age of 8, and into public toilets.

My DS has been going into public toilets on his own from about 7. I'm not being "right on"' about it - it's just what happens.

NigellasDealer Mon 17-Mar-14 21:21:33

jesus christ you lot.
no i am just being realistic

MirandaWest Mon 17-Mar-14 21:22:18

Just re-read my first post and there should have been a "having sex" in the last sentence.

Snargaluff Mon 17-Mar-14 21:22:42

If you're scared of peadophiles maybe that's a different issue nigella but we were talking about gay men.

Recently I took dds friends swimming...one was a boy and the mother told me not to let him in boys loo on his own..because of
strange men...I was a little taken a back..particularly as he is quite a feminine little boy..and I can see how she can't see the writing on the wall..but there you go, I am sure he will settle down with a lovely young man

Wow, that changed direction quickly!

Snargaluff Mon 17-Mar-14 21:23:22

But op I would just tell him matter of fact. He will soon find out at school etc.

nethunsreject Mon 17-Mar-14 21:23:32

Not realistic at all! By all means keep your kid within sight for safety, but jeezo!

NachoAddict Mon 17-Mar-14 21:23:59

My ds would be horrified if he had to come in the ladies now.

What kind of places are you going that men having intercourse in the middle of the loo is so common!
