Question of the Day...

Came from my eldest last night. “Mom, what’s humping?” I nearly croaked. I told him ‘its slang for sex’, thanking the Good Lord that we had had the sex conversation already.

This is the 2nd time I’ve been asked about a slang word for sex. So this time… I decided to list a bunch for him so he’d be more informed. Yeah, I know, my sister is reading this and saying to herself, “You did what?!!!”

Yup. I did. I said, “Phrases you will hear besides fucking and humping, which you’ve already asked about are ‘screwing’, ‘doing the dirty deed’, ‘getting it on’, and ‘going at it’. You’ll hear more, but for sure, you’ll hear those.”

So far he has had no qualms about asking me questions. He knows my rule… just don’t ask in front of his brothers.

I’m not up for the Mom ‘O The Year Award am I?

Yes Bou, that was my reaction!

But to add to the list...bumpin' uglies and a fav saying of mine, throwing leg.

"doing the wild thing" "bumping uglies"

And, yes, you are, in fact, up for Mom O' The Year Award. That's what they give to moms who actually talk to their children about such things.

(Although my parents were appalled that we told the boys the correct anatomical name for their private parts. So maybe I was the wrong person to ask.)

Eventually, he might be able to tell you some new terms for it! Kids have the weirdest slang sometimes!

You forgot "the horizontal mambo".

Hmmmm. I wonder if I can find a dictionary of 'slang' terms for him. GRIN.

knocking boots, Doin' the wild thang, horizontal tango, going for a ride, making crotch butter, sewing your oats, excercising willie until he pukes, and of course one of my personal favorits: Doin' it.

I must get out more often because the first thing I thought about was that he had seen 2 dogs going at it.

Well, we had the talk a long time ago with our 8-year old daughter. I think it was the reason she didn't claw out her eyes like King Oedipus when she accidentally walked in on my wife and me. I really dislike getting blindsided by questions like these, though. The other day she asked me out of the blue "Dad, what's a camel toe?"

Oh no no no no no! I am *not* ready for this kind of stuff yet! But as we are headed for 3rd and 2nd grade around here I imagine it is inevitable. *sigh*
