Today’s question is: Who would think they’d have to have the blow job talk with their 11 year old girl?
Background: I’m serious here, I had to talk blow jobs, among other things with my 11 year old daughter, recently.
Here’s the story, our local ice rink has something called “friday night skate”. Basically the middle school kids all go to the rink on Friday night and skate without their parents. Many, very, very many of them are simply dropped off and picked up from the parking lot, their parents never step foot inside. I am not one of those parents.
I only let my girl go once a month, and by the end of the year she didn’t want to go much at all. But the last time she went, I was on drop off duty. Basically I walk her and her friend(s) in, look around, talk and watch what’s going on for a while before I take off. Then whomever is picking up always shows up early to survey the situation.
The last time my girl was there, my girlfriend was on pick up duty and she showed up early to survey the scene, like always. It just so happened that she was standing near a bunch 5th grade girls and she overheard them discussing blow jobs. Now this is exactly why it makes sense to get out of your car and walk in and check things out. Had my friend never gone in, I’d be clueless like half the other moms.
Nice huh? Nothing like a bunch of 10 and 11 year olds talking about something not many grown ups I know talk about.
Well that sparked an entire information gathering and spilling extravaganza on my part. When I had my girl alone I asked her if she knew what a blow job was. She said she did. I asked her who told her, she said she didn’t know, which is mom code for I am so not telling you. Then I said that well, you know blow jobs are super intimate and all fine and dandy if you are an adult and in a committed relationship and truly in love, but that at her age, giving a guy a blow job would mean that guy telling his friends and the next thing she knows everyone would want a blow job from her and she’d be known as the blow job girl. Not to mention, did she really want to stick a guys penis in her mouth? I mean really honey, do you?
Of course she didn’t, I think the grossness of the whole thing, just may keep that at bay. That and the fact that she doesn’t like boys….yet.
It’s times like these when I sort of envy that some people live in the middle of nowhere. A lot less blow job talk, I’m sure.
