The Birds and The Bees   Leave a comment

I have to thank Life Coach kamalathompson for bringing my attention to this delightful video showing parents talking to their kids about the birds and the bees for the first time. The video lasts 4.46 mins, and is worth every second of your time. Watch it here:

But first I want to tell you why this is so significant for me – and you – whether you are a parent already or just curious about one of our most beautiful functions that stems from desire, lust, and of course, two people in love.

What prompted me to write about sex and love? Yes, like many of you reading this, I am a father, and now grandfather, and I have experienced the awkwardness of helping our offspring understand how their bodies work, how conception and contraception can be achieved, and the importance of communication in a loving relationship.

Young adults – and we’ve all been young adults at some time – reckon they know all there is to know about sex and so are unlikely to buy any books on the subject. What they do do, however, is talk to their peers and consider that’s the best way to learn – not necessarily the most enlightened group. At least that’s what the girls do. The boys just follow their urges. When I heard a teenager say she thought having sex while standing up was safe – gravity was her contraceptive – I began my researches. The astonishing findings and the results of world-wide surveys and studies, put together with the personal experiences of both male and female contributors, and of all ages from teens to eighties, enabled me to produce the definitive work Exploring Sex, Love and Lust.

If you are a parent, and your children are approaching, or have already reached, those awkward teenage years, you should find this book an invaluable aid.  You might even discover things you never knew about yourself. As a reviewer said in the NY Times Blue Ink literary supplement, ‘Clive Peters keeps that promise.’

Thanks for your time, and enjoy the video.

Clive Peters.
