Talking to your gay son about sex

I started exploring my sexuality around age 17. I understood my physical attractions for men, but not the emotional bonds or the complexities of sexual relationships. There were no conversations about sex in my home, so I was left to my own devices and explored without guidance.

I understood the basics of safety, such as condom use; but knew little about anything else. I would search for information where I could find it. My home, however, was not an option because, to me, the silence surrounding sex meant it was somehow forbidden or inappropriate. I was confused enough. I didn't need to be reprimanded for exploring my curiosities.

Thanks for this link! I'm looking for some info on how to talk to my gay (I think) stepson about being safe, emotionally ready, etc. He goes to a catholic school, and I'm sure they don't talk about homosexual physicality in their sex ed curriculum. Many thanks.
