There are certain topics we absolutely love to talk about with our parents. A Walking Dead recap? Zombies rule! Birthday gift(s)? We'll take this, this, and that. How penises and vaginas interact with each other? OMG, no, never, just stop now. While we appreciate their years of experience, the topic of sex is something we'd rather discuss with our partners, our friends, and our gynecologists. But hey, some parents have no filter and want you to practice safe sex—no matter how old you are. So we pulled together the 17 most awkward stories of "the talk." Enjoy, and just try not to wince.

"I have a long-distance relationship (well, it's 'only' 400 miles). I told my mother I was going to visit my boyfriend one summer, and she told me that was fine and to have fun. Then I said, 'We'll probably visit two of his friends, too. They're really nice people, apparently,' to which she turned around and responded, 'Oh, I'll get you some condoms then!'" —Julie T.

Our Little Secret

"I was dealing with a UTI caused by having sex with my boyfriend. My mom told me she used to get them all the time and that I shouldn't tell my boyfriend that he caused it because it will just make him feel bad. She also said that this happened when she was dating my dad. She said, 'He felt really, really bad because we just wanted to have a little fun.' I think it was the 'have a little fun' part that grossed me out the most." —Elizabeth O.

Trash Day

"When I was in college, my mom found out I was having sex by going through my garbage when I left for school after winter break. She was looking for a receipt for something I got her for Christmas, but instead she found a condom—a used one. Instead of having a calm discussion about the responsibility that comes with having sex or just not telling me at all, she called me and said, 'So you're having sex now? I found a condom in the garbage in your room. Dad says to flush it down the toilet next time.' Thank goodness I was far, far away from them." —Ashley O.
