I just wanted to say thank you to everyone associated with this site. I'm 47, my daughter is 13 and I was raised by the Last Living Puritan. Talk about a recipe for disaster. While my mother seemed to at least try to overcome her own somewhat odd upbringing and teach my sisters and I what we needed to know, most of what we got, we got on our own. (Sometimes being a research geek has amazing benefits. ;-) Still, there's a great deal I fumbled through (badly, as I recall) that I don't want my daughter to go through. Sadly, I don't really know how to help her except be there when she has questions and not shut her down with, I kid you not, "your prince will come". *shudder* (Thanks *so* much, Mom.) But as I'm reading through this site, I begin to have hope. If I'm lucky, I can convince her to sit down and go through some of the site with me, but, if not, the URL will, at least, be in her inbox.

Thanks again! In this ludicrous "just say no" age it's quite refreshing to see actual information made available to those who need it. To quote (or possibly paraphrase) one of the articles, "in order to make an informed decision, one must first *be* *informed*". Young men and women have a great capacity for looking out for themselves and for each other. We shouldn't be sending them out to interact with the world crippled by ignorance.

You're welcome, jbk!

And your plan of just being there when she has questions? Good plan. If she knows already she can come to you, and when she does, you come to it with the approach you've clearly got, I'm sure you'll do just fine. [Smile]

I totally agree. I can't really talk about this stuff with my mom and this is like everyone's mom on a big happy website just for me! I have a question, and I know the answer is here, unbiased and easy to find. You are my internet hero. I don't have to sift though junk I don't know if I can trust. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. You are making the sex world a safer place for girls and women.


THANK YOU.
