Dolly and girlfriend mags. And I had 2 older sisters who knew about that stuff. My mum never talked about anything to do with sex ever.
Plus I remember first learning about sex ed in year 5 at school.

I was a farm girl and raised by people who had been exhibiting and breeding Danes for generations.
My parents and grandparents were very straightforward and honest. I can't remember a time when I didn't know any of it. I wanted to be a vet since I was about 5, so I also owned lots of illustrated medical journals from a young age which explained it in detailed cross-sections.
Going to S.ex Ed in high school was more a laughing matter than a serious one for me.
13 year old girls who were already banging away with their boyfriends being shocked at finding out that the v.gina and the colon are different parts of the body. Their ignorance was astounding and quite amusing to me at the time.
DD is 5 and knows everything. All of the proper words, all of the proper processes.

My mum used to breed birds and used that as a non-embarrassing in to talk about sex. Then a friend of mine found an instruction manual for sex in his parents bedroom and pinched it to read aloud to all of us when I was 9. By the time i got to sex ed I pretty well knew everything they were teaching but it was hilarious watching everyone squirm. When I got my first period I knew what it was but my sis was on hand at the time to explain pads to me which was very helpful. Anything else, I learnt through experience and experimentation and through my friends talking.

In year 7 we had sex ed classes ... They were kind of strange.
The teacher explained vaginal, oral and anal sex to us, and then went on to tell us that anal sounds painful and dirty, but is actually the best kind (wtf??)
She also told us in no uncertain terms that douching is NOT an effective means of birth control ... And she was pregnant at the time
Aside from that, I learned most things from Dolly or Girlfriend.

We had a night at primary school in year 3 where they screened 'where do babies come from'
In year 6 and 7 we did sex ed lessons - learnt basic anatomy and then split into boys and girls to learn about periods, wet dreams etc
In year 8 - 10 we had health lessons in PE, these covered anatomy, contraception,STIs, different sex acts, pregnancy, birth etc
I also read the sealed sections in Dolly and Girlfriend and have 2 sisters, Mum would answer questions we needed and suggested tampons early on as I played a lot of sport but really I didn't have many with all this I was very well educated!

Gosh how do you guys remember this stuff so clearly??
I think we had a "Where Did I Come From" book floating around the house but I don't remember any specific talk from Mum and Dad or from the school. Weird. Must have just been little bits of info picked up/discussed as I grew up.

Mum says I asked at about three years old where babies come from, and she told me. I have just always known. I always knew about periods too, I expect mum just changed her sanitary products whether I was in the room or not and when I asked she told me.
Same with DS, he asked at three and I told him, and he asked again at five in much more detail so I just answered his questions. He's known about periods forever as I never had an issue with using sanitary stuff in front of him and explaining what a period is and what it's for.
