My mom told me (and my siblings) that the penis went in the vagina, and that's how the sperm find the egg. It wasn't until I was like 11 and my mom gave me a really comprehensive book about puberty, which included diagrams of sex and erect penises, that I ever even thought of anything beyond "the penis goes in the vagina."
I've thought a lot about this, even though DS hasn't asked the big question. I don't want to lie, so I will probably not tell him that sex is just for making babies, that people do it just because it's fun and feels good. I also probably won't tell him it's only for people who love each other, because love, lust, and sex already tend to get all mixed up with teenagers - I want to have sex with this person, therefore I love them; I had sex with this person, therefore I must love them; I love this person, therefore I should have sex with them. I mean, the real ins and outs of the emotional side of sex will obviously wait until he can comprehend it.
I'm really interested in checking out those books and the UU curriculum!
