Having established he found out about them on the Internet I made a mental note to check parental controls I stammered my way through a child friendly explanation, whilst his horror visibly increased, as did my own trauma.

He then asked about the duck ones his father had brought home a while ago.

Turns out he was thinking about Stress toys.

We have agreed to Brain bleach and never speak of this again.

I wish I still drank.

Sorry but grin

You have just created a family legend which will be retold for generations....

I don't know whether to be shock or grin, so I'll just go with grin grin grin

I just got in trouble at DS' s Kung Fu for laughing so loud! grin

You will never live that down!

I've said we can discuss it again when he's 17, hopefully he won't want too.


It was awful.

I thought I was a liberal approachable parent. Turns out I have my limits.

Ah I was having a rough day til now, thanks so much for the laugh!

Honey - it's a good job you didn't take him straight to the Love Honey website, where video demos ("The Hands") manipulate various marital accessories, to demonstrate their pliability and feel.

His face would have been shock for the next three days.

Time for a hearing aide?


Oh HoneyDragon. I have a 10yo DS. I can't even imagine....


HoneyDragon Tue 06-Aug-13 16:39:08

Tee. I didn't mis hear. I clarified he meant sex.

He gets words confused.

When he complained about his tentacles hunting instead of testicles that was cute.

Confusing sex toy with stress toy. Well, that's just the conversation to make you beat yourself to death with your own leg.

Thank you for a great laugh! I'm sure he'll mention this in his Wedding speech!

I have to know, what was your child friendly explanation?!

HoneyDragon Tue 06-Aug-13 17:07:05

It started with When two people love each other. I may have mentioned tickling. Mostly I burbled a lot about him being 10 for FFS.

CoffeeOne Tue 06-Aug-13 17:12:54

haha poor you OP! I hope he forgets about it quickly smile

Mrsrobertduvall Tue 06-Aug-13 17:16:34

That's great.
Who was most embarrassed?

HoneyDragon Tue 06-Aug-13 17:18:45

I was the most embarrassed

Ds was the most horrified

You know that thread at the moment about jaw dropping things people say?

Your DS will be on it in a few years time talking about the time that he asked his mum about stress relievers & she started talking about dildos grin grin grin

That's hilarious though

absentmindeddooooodles Tue 06-Aug-13 17:27:18

Pahahahahahahahahaha. Just great. Poor you!

ImperialBlether Tue 06-Aug-13 17:30:27

Wasn't that the excuse for vibrators in Victorian times?

Your poor DS!

Mrsrobertduvall Tue 06-Aug-13 17:30:52

We need the full transcript so we will know what to say when our children ask about sex toys.n[ grin]
