8 Women Share the Sex Advice They’ll Give Their Kids in 10 Years

Growing up was as awkward as it was hormonal, leaving many of us with hilarious v-card tales that still make us blush. But the memories that prove even more, er, noteworthy, are often the ones of our parents awkwardly trying to talk to us about sex. You know, without throwing up.

Since one day it could be you playing the part of the parental unit to an adolescent (read: horny) mini-me, why not start preparing the flashcards now?

Here, eight women divulge the sex advice they plan on passing along to their kids one day:

"Don't just ask him to wear a condom, demand that he do so. The pill doesn't protect you against STDs (and chlamydia's no joke). Carry some in your purse just in case. Ideally, you should keep a few different sizes in stock. Some guys just aren't as big as they say they are, and I'm way too young to be a grandma." —Tara F.

"Masturbate on the regular. Not only is it a good way to get to know your body and become more comfortable with the concept of sex, as you get older it will help you avoid making bad decisions. For example, when you spot a super hot guy at a party who you know is a bad idea, but your hormones are telling you otherwise, just get your freak on with yourself pre-party. And bam, you'll keep it together like a boss." —Megan D. (Score toys that will make "me time" that much more fun at the Women's Health Boutique.)

"Sex doesn't always equal love. It's OK to just have sex with someone you're not in a relationship with, so long as you're both on the same page about it—and there's no hint that feelings might change after the fact. Be clear about what you want (and don't want) with every encounter." —Maddy T.

"Once you're ready for a long-term relationship, try and find someone who has a similar sex drive to your own. It'll save you a ton of drama in the long run. Just ask your dad." —Shawna R.

"Whether you're only with him for a few months or you're together a few years, never feel guilty when you don't want to have sex. It's not something you should be pressured into, and you should never feel obligated to sleep with him just because he's your bae." —Stephanie B.

"Don't be ashamed of what turns you on. It's normal to be turned on by weird or unexpected things, and if you're ever with someone who makes you feel bad for being yourself in the bedroom, they're not worth one more second of your time." —Jenni W.

"There's never going to be a 'perfect' time to lose your virginity, and planning it too heavily will almost always lead to disappointment. Be prepared, but know that the moment will ultimately come down to a gut feeling where everything clicks—right place, right time, right person. You'll know when you know. (Oh, and don't tell your father until you're at least 30.)" —Tricia S.
