    That's it's another way to express love. Along with kissing, hand holding, etc.

    And this.

    Pretty much the opposite of what my parents did. They never talked about s.ex, or intimacy at all, and it left me not knowing much about it TBH!

    I want mine to know it's normal, natural and feels good. I want both to know that no means no, my son to respect his partner and care about their enjoyment, and for my DD to expect the same from hers. I had lots of relationships with men who didn't do anything for me and I didn't know better to ask.

    That it's not dirty, that it can be fun or special depending on who/what you want at the time, but that you should wait until you are ready the first time. Done let any partner coerce you into it before you want to. Do it because you love someone, not because all your friends are doing it.

    Be safe and feel safe - if you don't want or they don't want to, then stop.

To know their own mind and to talk openly with thei partner about what they do or don't want, and that if they make mistakes/regret things, it's an opportunity to learn from. That consideration and respect for a partner is paramount, and that consent can't be assumed.

    This.

    I also really want to show her that you can be open about sex without the *smutification* of sex.

    And that anybody that would have you think that you need to offer sex to bring them closer is not somebody you want to be around
