It's the conversation no one wants to have and, yes, it will make you cringe.
There are certain things in life you just don’t discuss with your parents: That time you took their car keys and went for a joyride when you were 15, the fact that you’ve tried pot (and inhaled), and the details of losing your virginity.
They probably have some vague idea that it happened—they just don’t need (or probably want) to know intimate details.
Now, Cut has a new video out on YouTube that features people explaining to their parents exactly when and how they lost their virginity. The awkwardness alone is enough evidence of why you should never, ever have this discussion with your parents.
First, the parents and their kids were asked how often they talk about sex and the answers were definitely along the lines of “I don’t think we got past the birds and the bees.”
“When was your first time?” one mom asks her daughter. “When do you think my first time was?” was the reply. The mom said she suspected that her daughter traded in her V-card when she went to homecoming, only to be told “Yeah, that wasn’t the first time” as the mom looks totally shocked.
Another mom says she knew exactly when her daughter lost her virginity, because she searched through her dirty clothes, found her underwear, and saw there were “drops of blood…and I said, ‘She did it!’” The poor daughter’s dad just sat there, awkwardly, next to his glass of water as they talked.
One guy actually had a great conversation with this dad about his first time, as they joked about what the cowgirl position was, but it got a little awkward when the dad asked if his son sucked the girl’s toes. “Did I suck her toes?” his son replied. “I hope you don’t suck toes, Dad!”
Another guy clearly didn’t want to open up about his experience as his mom pumped him for details. “This is about the bases,” she said as he cringed. “No foreplay?”
As you can imagine, there was a lot of awkward laughter and there were some tears. But, by the end, everyone could laugh about how completely absurd the conversation was.
