    Gulp. It happens at different ages for different kids, but sooner or later every single one of them becomes way too smart to think that babies are dropped off on our doorsteps by the stork.

    And even though it's not an easy conversation to have, we owe it to our children to tell them the truth and lay out the whole birds and the bees thing for what it actually is.

    You know ... (sex).

    Ahh! My eyes! After seeing this list written by a class of second graders for tips on how to fall in love, I'm not sure whether to laugh out loud or cry into my beer. My own second grader might already know this much about what happens when men and women have the hots for each other.

    Given that most second graders are 7 or 8 years old, you wouldn't think they had much of a clue about the birds and the bees, but based on this particular note, it's clear that I'm not giving them nearly enough credit.

    Can we talk about condoms? We know you have questions. We've all heard they're incredibly effective in preventing pregnancy, and you probably know that they're the only contraception that also protects you from sexually-transmitted diseases like HIV and HPV. But what about all those other condom questions, the ones we're usually too embarrassed to ask?

    We brought all our awkward, offbeat, and newbie questions about condoms to sex therapist and host of CafeMom Studios' Mom-Ed: In the Bedroom, Dr. Logan Levkoff. And she's got answers for us! Here's everything you've ever wanted to know about condoms, and more. Because we want you to have safe and fun sexy times.

    The joy of sex could be even more joyful if you were having orgasms. And the sad fact of the matter is that far too many of us women are not "coming" to the party. Sure sex can be great without having the big O, but it's even better if you do. And you should. You deserve it. That feeling. The incredible, often mind-blowing experience. It is oh so good.

    There are reasons you may not be having an orgasm that go beyond the reality that your lover just isn't sure how to properly please you. (Talk to your men, ladies. Tell him what feels good! Show him!) These are things you can change in your life in order to feel better during sex. Behold these six shocking reasons you aren't having an orgasm.

    Class Teaches Women How to OMG WHAT?!

    Tonight something very special is happening at a school in New York. It's something that women and men all over the world should attend, but obviously due to lack of space isn't going to happen at one venue. It's that important. And it has to do with our rights as women, as people. It has to do with our right to have an orgasm.

    The class, offered at Hamilton College (which is highly ranked and considered a hidden Ivy league school) in upstate New York, is called The Female Orgasm and it teaches all genders and all sexual orientations "everything from multiple orgasms to that mysterious G-spot." Naturally, there's outrage, but for no good reason.

    Like sex but not the pill or condoms? You're in good company. It seems another birth control method has become all the rage lately, but there's nothing new about it: It's the pullout method. You know, coitus interruptus, the withdrawal method? This is when your partner pulls out before he ejaculates his baby-making seeds inside of you. (Sorry to get graphic, just want to be clear about what we're talking about here.) It's the birth control for women who are sick of messing with their hormones and hate using condoms -- or for couples who seem to have trouble planning ahead. And it's used by a surprisingly large number of women. So if it's so popular, it must be reliable, right? Well ... maybe we should learn a little more about it before we jump to that conclusion. Here's what you should know about the pullout method.

    Remember that scene in Juno when she goes to the abortion clinic, and the reception offers her boysenberry-flavored condoms, and says they make her boyfriend’s junk taste like pie? That always made me giggle.

    Although I’ve never used them, I can understand the appeal of flavored condoms. Hey, safety first, and if you’re going to do that, some flavor other than K-Y might make the experience more, shall we say, appetizing.

    As it turns out, you can get condoms in almost every flavor imaginable -- including bacon. That’s right, the company J&D’s Foods recently launched bacon condoms. With that inspiration, I set out to find the wackiest flavored condoms on the market.

    Ah, this is what I love about New York. You can get anything you want. Sushi at 3 a.m. A subway ride at any time of the day or night. A sex guru to come over to your place, watch you have sex, and give you pointers. Spittake! Yeah, ladies, there's a real life "sex guru" who makes his living instructing couples how to spice up their sex lives -- and he does it live and in the sack. Well, he's not in the sack with you (he refuses to go that far), but he's like rightthere. Watching. Observing. Being all, "Hey, move your finger a little to the left, wouldya? There ya go." If he can't get to you, he'll do it over Skype.

    He's a real life Christian Grey because he claims he's a sex expert. He knows evvvvverything about what to do in the sack. And how'd he learn? Through a much older sex instructor, but of course.

    No matter how you put it -- knock boots, smush, do the deed, get dirty -- everyone has certain things they love during sex. Maybe you're into girl on top. Maybe you're a missionary kind of lady. Heck, maybe you get off when your guy wears a monkey suit. To each her own.

    However, there are some things that are just absolute no-nos between the sheets. Yeah you may not like a dirty talker, but that doesn't mean it's an absolute don't. They do exist, though.

    It really shouldn't surprise me by now that you can sign up for sex lessons from bona fide porn stars in San Francisco to learn tips and tricks for how to get your jollies and pleasure your mate. After all, this is the 50 Shades of Grey era, when people openly read erotica in public, and Harvard officially recognizes a BDSM club as a campus group.

    But there’s just such an aura of "ick" surrounding the idea. It sounds like a bad sitcom plot in which one of the main male characters gets tricked into a compromising position against his will. "They told me it was going to be an educational class!" he unwittingly will tell his wife after being caught with a porn star.
