This May Be the Most Awkward Children's Sex Ed Book Ever

Katherine Peck shares hilarious story about a creepy kids sex education book

Have you ever been out and about with your kids and had something happen that made you loathe adulting, to the point where you wished you could magically transport yourself out of the parenting moment you're about to have? Yeah, that's what happened to Katherine Peck, a UK mom whose children found an unusual sex education book in her doctor's waiting room. Featuring pages of Kamasutra-inspired positions that'd make any parent blush in horror, this kids' book definitely made the mom do a double take ... and her two children did, too.


While it's not hard to imagine a mom sitting in a doctor's waiting room with her two kids, I can only picture the look on Katherine's face when her son, Adem, picked up the book Mummy Laid an Egg: Or, Where Do Babies Come From? and shared it with his 8-year-old sister, Ayla.

"All began routinely enough, with 'sugar and spice and all things nice' and such, but I was ill prepared for the most sudden U-Turn on Page 6, where we're introduced to Daddy's friendly looking 'seed pods'!" Peck wrote in her Facebook post about the book.

Believe it or not, the "sex education" fun was only getting started.

"No holds barred on Pages 8 and 9 either, where apparently 'this fits in here...' (sounds easy enough), and then what can only be described as a child-friendly Kama Sutra guide ensues on Page 10!" Katherine continued on Facebook.

Yup, those are parents getting busy on a skateboard and with circus accessories. Classy stuff.

"Aerial acrobatics, fetish clown outfits and space hoppers (fun times!)" Peck added.

WOW, LOL! Are those parents trying to ascend to Cloud Nine with those balloons in some Up-inspired way? God bless them.

Where do you even start with something like this?

I try my best not to be too much of a prude with my kids, but I'd side-eye this book hard if it was just randomly sitting in my doctor's waiting room. Sorry, but I don't really see moms and dads jumping on sofas in celebration of this sex education book, especially if said parents aren't ready to have "the talk," or if they prefer to take a more serious approach. It's a little weird to think children might find this treasure among copies of Highlights magazine or the latest issue of National Geographic.

As this mom hilariously sums it up in her post, "Cue the 4 billion questions I hadn't planned answering today."

I'm sure there might come a day when I'd gladly scoop up this clever and casual read once the heat from the awkward sex talk starts to turn up. But, until that day arrives, I just don't think I want to see Kamasutra-like positions (with parents dressed as clowns, no less!) in a children's book in my doctor's waiting room. That takes freaky to another level I don't even want to experience.
