I posed the question to my mother. She smiled and said, "Don't worry, for babies to be born, the man and the woman have got to do a thing."
"What thing?" I asked ever so innocently.
"The man and the woman has to touch their genitals with each other."
"Eeew!! Gross! Those are used for peeing!"
"I am so not going to make my willie touch with a thing that is used for peeing. People are sick!"
My mother laughed and got back to her chore. I guess, she didn't want to explain that there was more than touching that was needed.
Then later one time when I was watching Speed, I heard our Keanu Reeves keep on repeating the word, "fuck." I didn't know the meaning, but I started shouting, "Fuck Fuck FUCK!!"
My mother stopped reading the magazine hearing the sudden outbursts of swears coming from me.
"Son, do you know the meaning of that word?"
"Hmm.. no I don't, you know?"
"It's something that is done while a man and a woman mate. You should not use that word."
"What do they do?"
"You should not use that word, it's not considered proper."
I guess, again she didn't want to give the real explanation.
But I was that innocent (read 'ignorant')! Anyways, I was meant to be tainted sooner or later. Thanks to the internet, I came to know.. see.. hear.. everything.. more than what I asked for!
But I used to be that innocent one time..
