In spite of seeming to have little useful purpose, small talk is a bonding ritual and a strategy for managing interpersonal distance.[4] It serves many functions in helping to define the relationships between friends, work colleagues, and new acquaintances. In particular, it helps new acquaintances to explore and categorize each other’s social position.[5] Small talk is closely related to the need for people to maintain positive face — to feel approved-of by those who are listening to them. It lubricates social interactions in a very flexible way, although the desired function is often dependent on the point in the conversation at which the small talk occurs:

  1. Conversation opener; When the talkers do not know each other, it allows them to show that they have friendly intentions and desire some sort of positive interaction. In a business meeting, it enables people to establish each other’s reputation and level of expertise. Where there is already a relationship between the two talkers, their small talk serves as a gentle introduction before engaging in more functional topics of conversation. It allows them to signal their own mood and to sense the mood of the other person.
  2. At the end of a conversation; Suddenly ending an exchange may risk appearing to reject the other person. Small talk can be used to mitigate that rejection, affirm the relationship between the two people, and soften the parting.
  3. Space filler to avoid silence; in many cultures, silences between two people are usually considered uncomfortable. Tension can be reduced by starting phatic talk until a more substantial subject arises. Generally, humans find prolonged silence uncomfortable, and sometimes unbearable. This can be due to human evolutionary history as a social species, as in many other social animals silence is a communicative sign of potential danger.[7]

The topics of small talk conversations are generally less important than their social function.[11] The selected topic usually depends on any pre-existing relationship between the two people, and the circumstances of the conversation. In either case, someone initiating small talk will tend to choose a topic for which they can assume a shared background knowledge, to prevent the conversation being too one-sided.[10]

–          Your stuff doesnt go missing at parties

–          Happier home when child isnt getting bullied

–          you can say everyday things without getting your head snapped off.. or at the very least have a better idea of why theyre acting out.

–          Its nice to be able to have normal conversations – where noone bites someones head off.

–          Simplicity is complicated

Truth is, if you’re embarrassed to talk about it, then your kids are going to be embarrassed to ask you questions.  Topics of sex should be a part of everyday conversations, the same way academics, friendships, drugs, alcohol, and health are.

In spite of seeming to have little useful purpose, small talk is a bonding ritual and a strategy for managing interpersonal distance.[4] It serves many functions in helping to define the relationships between friends, work colleagues, and new acquaintances. In particular, it helps new acquaintances to explore and categorize each other’s social position.[5] Small talk is closely related to the need for people to maintain positive face — to feel approved-of by those who are listening to them. It lubricates social interactions in a very flexible way, although the desired function is often dependent on the point in the conversation at which the small talk occurs:

  1. Conversation opener; When the talkers do not know each other, it allows them to show that they have friendly intentions and desire some sort of positive interaction. In a business meeting, it enables people to establish each other’s reputation and level of expertise. Where there is already a relationship between the two talkers, their small talk serves as a gentle introduction before engaging in more functional topics of conversation. It allows them to signal their own mood and to sense the mood of the other person.
  2. At the end of a conversation; Suddenly ending an exchange may risk appearing to reject the other person. Small talk can be used to mitigate that rejection, affirm the relationship between the two people, and soften the parting.
  3. Space filler to avoid silence; in many cultures, silences between two people are usually considered uncomfortable. Tension can be reduced by starting phatic talk until a more substantial subject arises. Generally, humans find prolonged silence uncomfortable, and sometimes unbearable. This can be due to human evolutionary history as a social species, as in many other social animals silence is a communicative sign of potential danger.[7]

The topics of small talk conversations are generally less important than their social function.[11] The selected topic usually depends on any pre-existing relationship between the two people, and the circumstances of the conversation. In either case, someone initiating small talk will tend to choose a topic for which they can assume a shared background knowledge, to prevent the conversation being too one-sided.[10]

Truth is, if you’re embarrassed to talk about it, then your kids are going to be embarrassed to ask you questions.  Topics of sex should be a part of everyday conversations, the same way academics, friendships, drugs, alcohol, and health are.

Sex education classes in New Zealand are becoming too graphic and kids are too young to understand what they’re being taught, according to outraged parents.

 

Parents are concerned children as young as 12 are being taught about oral and anal sex and girls as young as 14 are being shown how to put a condom on a plastic penis.

According to an MSN NZ poll asking readers if NZ schools were going too far when teaching children about sex, parents were split on whether children were getting too much information. Results showed more than 3000 replied yes, closely followed by 2800 readers voting no.

Parents took to talkback radio yesterday to express their shock at what their kids were learning.

One mother phoned Newstalk ZB to say her 14-year-old daughter had come home from school this week saying “she had been applying yucky and sticky condoms to a plastic black penis”.

Another parent said he had removed his 12-year-old son from sex education classes at his school after telling his father that lessons had focussed on touching a girl’s clitoris.

“I have learned that my girlfriend has a thing called a clitoris. I really want to play with it. Is that okay?” The answer was: “Yes, if you ask her and she’s okay with it.”

According to the Secondary Principals’ Association sex education is now about teaching the kids about sexual health and staying safe from sexually transmitted diseases, rather than focusing on just reproductive health. Children were also learning about sex education as early as at intermediate school.

Family Planning have also backed the new curriculum saying that children as young as 12 are now sexually active and that New Zealand has one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in the world.

The centre’s health promotion director, Frances Bird, argues that research shows that comprehensive sex education programmes could make a difference — particularly by delaying the first time people have sex and increasing the use of condoms and contraception.

How to Talk With Your Teenagers, Not at Them

And while all of this is occurring with them, we are experiencing our own developmental crisis. Let’s face it — we’re getting older and losing a bit of our sense of personal prowess and control. In other words, we fear we’re over the hill. So when these young upstarts challenge our authority, we feel we must make a last ditch effort to get control of the situation.

Naturally, this backfires. With emotions running high and everyone in developmental flux, how do we talk with these seemingly unapproachable aliens — the kids we used to know and love? And harder yet, how do we get them to respond?

Communication Dos

  • Be a good listener. If your teen is willing to share something — anything — accept it for the precious and rare moment it is. Unless the house is on fire, stop and listen nonjudgmentally. Rule of thumb: Listen twice as much as you speak.
  • Respect her privacy. If she sees that you understand her need for private phone calls and a closed bedroom door, she may be more willing to try sharing some of her inner world with you.
  • Give her increasing autonomy. If she believes that you trust her judgment, and understand her need for growing independence, she is more likely to talk with you when real issues arise.
  • Accept all of her feelings, as long as they are respectfully conveyed.
  • Apologize when you are wrong.
  • When you speak to her, keep your comments brief. Schedule time to talk about unappealing topics, such as homework — don’t catch her on the fly. Focus on what she got right, before offering constructive criticism.

Communication Don’ts

  • Avoid lecturing, nagging and guilt trips.
  • Don’t reveal to others the confidences she has shared with you. She may not risk offering you her intimate thoughts again for some time to come.
  • Refrain from asking questions. For example, instead of saying “Why are you 15 minutes late getting home,” say “I noticed you missed your curfew by 15 minutes.” A subtle difference, but one that will meet less resistance.

Unfortunately, there is no navigational chart for making it through the rough waters of adolescence. Following these compass points, however, may make the trip just a bit more navigable.

“I know, Mom! You’ve told me this stuff, like, 1,000 times already! Do I really have to hear another lecture?!”

My pre-teen daughter turned on her heel and stomped away.

Once — what seemed like a lifetime ago — Molly wanted to hear my thoughts. She hugged me tight and loved nightly “tuck-ins” where we’d pray and giggle.

What happened to that girl?

That girl liked me. This girl traded death stares with me. Her growing demands for independence and my growing desire to protect and control had frequently placed us on a collision course. Our clashes weren’t pretty. Sadly, we both often spoke to each other like adolescents. She was 12. I had to be the grownup.

So, one day I laid a journal on her bed and hoped for the best.

She didn’t want to hear my words, but maybe she would read them.

The first entry I wrote told her how much I loved her and wanted to communicate with her. Not with angry words that left us both feeling empty and hostile, but with words that expressed my heart.

Written words could be well-thought out, instead of spewed with heated emotion. They could be read and re-read when she was ready and open to “hearing’ what I had to say.

I had no idea how she’d respond.

Then, just before she went to bed that night, she gave me this: “Thanks for the journal, Mom. I think it’s a good idea.”

Really? I had a good idea? Maybe there was hope for us after all.

Over the past three years, a number of factors have improved our relationship  – prayer and maturity (hers and mine!) — but the journal has been a key component in keeping her heart open. And mine.

I’ve written many “lectures,” apologies and words of advice that I’d never have been able to finish if I’d verbalized them. Plus, they are there for all posterity. One day, she might dismiss them as the rantings of a mom who doesn’t “get it.” But maybe a year later, she’ll view them in a whole new light.

http://info.uknowkids.com/blog/bid/277104/How-to-Talk-to-Your-Teen-About-Sexting

Someone took my idea, bastards!!! Ah well I want to build it into a campaign thats bigger than that anyway, or well, as it stands change idea completely anyway.

Watch TV together. If asking, “How was your day,” isn’t getting you much beyond a few “fines,” and “goods,” try spending some time watching your teen’s favorite television shows. On an episode of American Idol, for instance, when a story about a contestant’s background reveals that she was bullied in school, it’s the perfect time to broach the subject personally, asking, “What do you think about what happened to that contestant?” or “Do you know anyone in school that happened to?” Ask leading questions to find out what caused the bullying. Conversations like these can lead to issues of sexting.

Awkward sex scene

Rom com

Teen hiding under blanket

eeeeeeeeewwwwwwww

GROSS – theyre kissing!

Mum do you watch this stuf?

isn’t it awkward when you watch sex scenes in movies with your family?

It is completely awkward.lol It really makes me feel uncomfortable. That’s why I never like watching movies or tv with my parents or my younger sister(only 10). And i still feel weird about it and im 18 .It makes me wonder what there thinking. Violence in films is different because most kids know they can’t get away with those stuff in real life.But sex scenes is is another story.

I know right. Lol. I’m turning 15 tomorrow and it’s very awkward.

But what I do is bring my phone or iPod touch and act like I got a text message whenever the scene comes on. That way I stare at the phone and can ignore everything.

Or, if it’s something like a movie I’ve seen before, I develop the need to pee or get thirsty about a minute before the scene starts. The fake text message also works here too.

omg im the same way just alot younger than you. what i do is if you know the movie and you know the scene is coming get up before and get popcorn or a drink.

It’s not awkward at all. Mostly because my family openly talks about sex and we all admit we enjoy it.

like when im watching a movie with my family/friends and then a sex scene or a intense kissing scene comes up i don’t know what to do ….so i just weirdly look around then watch again for a couple of seconds then look around again and/or ask the randomest (?) sh!t ever…. that doesnt even have to do with the movie at all… because i think that if i look at the scene like any other scene then my fam/friends will think i’m into it/ enjoying it … lol….

so are sex/kissing scenes awkward for you too and what do you do…?

I would say most people enjoy kissing and sex, so watching it and enjoying it wouldn’t be unusual. (As long as you’re not “enjoying” it too much in the presence of others, if you get my drift.) But I’m sure your feelings aren’t too different than those of your friends and family members. 

I watched “Striptease” with my parents, lol. My mom told me if I ever wanted to be a stripper, that would be okay but she’d have to come and critique me. Oh, Mom…

We have Clearplay and set it to remove or skip certain scenes. We don’t like excessive language either. Our kids are young adults now but we still use Clearplay. You can order it online. It’s a dvd player with filters. Of course it doesn’t work on tv movies or streaming. But we just don’t watch any that need filtering.
I’ve been married 24 years and still get uncomfortable watching bedroom scenes with my husband. It has nothing to do with maturity. Kissing scenes are okay. : )

It depends on what’s the nature of the movie, of what the movie intends to show us. 
A sex scene in Basic instinct was perfectly OK, but a sex scene in Final destination 4 was compeletely pointless..

They can be extremely awkward, it is always best to watch it as if it isn’t bothering you one bit though, as if people realise that you find it awkward, it just becomes more awkward!

That’s the reaon I never watch movies around family! But if I do and it happens, I just pretend to sleep!

awkward sex-scenes with your parents?

  • Suge asked 3 years ago

Okay so we all had those moments, when were sitting in the living room watching a show and !BAM! Two people are going at it hardcore. I’ve been in that situations and its so awkward when your watching it with your parents! I usually close my eyes or something or go to the bathroom haha.

So what do/did you do when awkward sex scenes show up with your parents? Do you just leave or stay there and take it?

Jeez, this happens way too often for it to be healthy lol. These are the ways I generally deal with it:

1. Stay completely silent and still. Don’t even breathe. Pray that it’s not a long scene.

2. Start a conversation about something. “Hey, so about that mould in the bathroom?!”

3. “Accidently” spill something. “OH GOSH DARNIT LOOK WHAT I HAVE DONE!”

4. Pretend there’s something wrong with the recliner and repeatedly recline it. LOUDLY.
(this can also make it more awkward because it’s basically a visual euphemism lol)

5. Change the channel “Oh, I just remembered there’s this GREAT documentary on slime on this channel!” (this can also backfire if it turns out to be a programme on breeding patterns. This has actually happened to me!)

last night we were watching a movie at my grandparents (we get movies from netflix and bring them over to watch lol) and suddenly the two people just start goin at it. so im like, wtF do i do?! so i just act like im texting someone on my phone, not makin and eye contact with the tv, or my grandparents and parents.
if i can tell there’s gonna be a sex scene its “i gotta go to the bathroom” or “i need a drink” or w.e
if i can’t, its the phone, or my computer if im on it while watching the movie.

please, once we were all watching the movie running scared and i knew a sex scene was coming up, but i panicked so i’m like “mom did you call me? i just got a voicemail from you.” and rushed outta the room to “listen to it”. i went balls out, i even dialed my voicemail! (:

It’s very akward with my parents, because my mom is always like ew yucky, so she is trying to show me not to have sex as a teenager, which I don’t want to. I just usually look down, and don’t pay attention. Or I go to the bathroom and then get something to eat or drink from the kitchen.

THAT HAPPENED TO ME LIKE AN HOUR AGO HAHA.
Yes, so so so so so awkward.
I was just watching the movie with my dad, and like these 18 year olds were getting it on… and he went on some rant about teenagers having sex and how disgusting it is.
I just kinda stayed there, I mean he was ranting to me hahahahaha. Oh man.

Oh my god, I just went to go see “The Kids Are Alright” with my parents, not knowing there would be around SEVEN seven, longish sex scenes……..it was the most awkward terrifying thing that has happened to me in a while… I just sat there leaned my head against my hand and pretended that i was bored or something…. eventually my dad just started walking me out each time….because my parents are strange…….god… DO NOT SEE THAT MOVIE WITH YOUR PARENTS

That happened to me all the time. I’d just look at em and smile and say “well that’s just cute.” and I’d go to the kitchen and find something to make and tell them to tell me when they were done giving eachother physicals. lol they can get prrretty awkward. I have just stayed there and took it too. Now that I’m much older none of us really care anymore.

I either tough it out or get a drink if it’s so bad I need to leave. I watched Bruno with my parents so trust me, I know awkward.
Sometimes I like to make a joke out it and I’ll be like “dayumm that’s hott” or “get some”. Normally I can tough it out.

Hahaha! Those ARE the worst. I usually run into those more with my dad and step mom, and when they happen I just go “Oh, uh, who wants cookies?” and go into the kitchen for box.😄

Do you get embarrased?When i first saw titanic with my mother in the room & jack and rose were going at it in the car I got so red in my cheeks i thought i was gonna die..I know sex is nothing to be ashamed about but why does the topic make me so so so uncomfortable when with family?With friends this would never happen

Haha, you’re not alone here. When I’m watching a rated R movie, which my parents don’t mind when it’s a funny movie, and a sex scene comes on, I try to leave the room until it’s over. When it comes to parents, they think we’re too young for these things. I watched Harold and Kumar Goes to White Castle Unrated at a young age and it was awkward that an adult was in the room. When NPH was riding the car squeezing a woman’s boobs and squirting milk at Harold and Kumar, my uncle turned the movie off because were were too yound. We were like, maybe 10 years old when we saw it? So if you’re old enough, they’ll respect your curiosity but when it comes to kids, they’ll turn it off. Besides, now, my parents don’t make me turn away because there are shows that I happen to see and there is nudity in them. Women dropping their bras, exposed vaginas, etc., but like I care, I’m happily gay, making it seem that I can control myself. And they even show that in “Rated” movies. Brokeback Mountain has some *** scenes and penis flashes. The Reader had scenes where an old woman was pushing sex onto a teenaged boy, exposed breasts, pubic hair, etc. Once your parents know that these things are now in movies, they’ll learn to accept it and you don’t need to be embarassed.

You think Titanic is bad. I was watching a movie with my family once on cable and everything started ok then a sex scene came on and they showed the guy going down on the girl including showing between her legs. Ya I didn’t know they showed that much. Worst part, I had just drank a big glass of coke and I couldn’t just go to the bathroom, you now how that would look. Someone did change the station.

Because although sex is out there pretty much in your face it is at the also taboo.
IT’S A BIT LIKE IMAGINING OUR PARENTS GOING AT IT,EWWWW,We all know they do it (at least did at some point) but the thought is just embarrassing. Same thing with sex scenes with family.

Yes! i was watching Forgetting Sarah Marshall with my parents and the scene where he dropped his towel and he’s standing there naked came on and i was like “yeaaaa im gonna go to the bathroom.” very awkward moment.

lol that is the most embarrassing thing, and idk why. like i watched cold mountain with my dad, and i couldnt look at him for the rest of the movie after that girl got raped… it was jsut so awkward

it got awkward. sometimes i went to the bathroom when i know the scene is coming. now i don’t watch movies with my family anymore

I used to, but not anymore; I’ve been desensitized. I watch True Blood every week with my parents and there are several explicit sex scenes per episode, and it doesn’t bother me.

Assuming you mean on TV in the comfort of your own home then I hit the mute button. And talk about something different for a few minutes

I pretend it bores me… which it kind of does. Watching sucks! Haha! I just say: “AGAIN?! Move on with the movie already!”

I used to feel the same…and the fact that my dad would tut-tut when people kissed or had sex didn’t help with the shame either…
.-)

I don’t know my family is really open about that kind of stuff. It embarrassed me when I was younger but now we all just make weird comments on it.

Lol Same here…I just pretend to be looking at my dog or something..just anything…at least your family doesn’t comment on it like my mother does (weird >.<)

I usually get an unexpected text on my phone that I have to check right away…….

Hmmm, pre watch the movied before you put it on (4 people thought this was a good idea! Really?.).

yeah i turn my head maybe its because you(anybody) try to act all good in front of your parents or you just are embarrassed

yeah i know what you mean. that is why i don’t hang out with my family. (Really? geeze)

Awkward sex scenes while watching movies with your parents?

How many of you find it to be absolutely horrible when a sex scene pops up on a show or movie while watching tv with your parents. It has to be the most awkward thing for me.

yeah im 33 and it is still weird to watch sex scenes when my dad is here

Haha… just don’t look at them and hope they don’t look at you. Avoid eye-contact!

Just a passionate kissing scene is awkward for me. (8 people liked this)

Whenever embarrasing scene comes on, or is due to, artificial discussion usually begins on something entirely irrelevant, ie so what are you doing tomorrow then? or does anyone want a cup of tea? until the scene has gone away! So funny! We try to avoid films with potential for embarrassing scenes in favour of rom com types which are much more dealable.

try being a parent. anyways,i just turn the channel for a couple minutes till i figure it’s over, or f/f.by now they do the same around me, they also do the ewww gross! thing.

HAHAHAHAH I remember these moments, I use to always try to sniff them out ahead of time so I can go get my snack or go to the bathroom, man…. I’m 24 and I still do that.

haha yah man i hate those times
its like… should i close my eyes or cover my eyes, or should i just watch and see what they say.
plus u gotta cover up the obvious erction…
yah man it sucks lol

I once rented ‘Kissing Jessica Stein’ and didn’t realise that it was all about lesbians!
I was sitting there with my parents feeling very, very awkward and wondering if they thought I was trying to tell them something in not so many words! lol
I am SOOOOO with you on this one!

Just calmly get up say “I have to go to the bathroom”….. If your not feeling like watching the rest of the movie, just act like something else has caught your attention and when they holler to you say “oh I’m not much for that move, I’m gonna play this game”…. or whatever your gonna do.

i hate it, im 21 and i get up and leave. My father is a very ridiculous person who blames on me if a scene like that comes up because i have a 17yr old sister and im supposed to take care she does not watch any sex scene.

The one from “The Name of the Rose” was a bit more graphic than I would have wanted to see with my mother.
Her comment? “I see why he would want to have sex with her.”
I think I was more embarrassed that I was there with her than she was over the whole thing.

Haha. I don’t watch movies with my parents anymore, they are thousands of miles away. But i remember those days. Wondering if they wonder (or maybe even, gulp, KNOW) what out of those things you have done before.

Well i think its weird if your watching it with your parents…..because if theres a sex scene pops out on a movie my parents will say “Close your eyes we don’t want you to see this!”

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES *gasp* YES YES YES YES YES YES…
movie- $9.99
DVD player- $29.99
popcorn- $2.99
feeling awkward when watching sex scene w/ parent- priceless

I hear you on that one hey!!!
Not so much with my parents, but every Thursday, my sister & I used to go to our grandmothers house to watch a move (movie night, highlight of her week!!) but everytime a sex scene would come on, or even just a long passionate kissing scene, she would hit the mute button or fast forward past the entire scene! It made my sister & I so uncomfortable because she made such a “scene” about it!!! Hahahahaha, poor old duck probably just thought she was sheilding us from the evil in the world!!!!!
Very awkward indeed, with dad more so than mum!!!!

yes it is, i just usually luagh it out◘

OMG THANK YOU! yes yes yes…..i just sit there silently not even moving not even breathing! just praying for it to be over and in my head im like omg omg omg get up leave plz jst find an excuse to leave but then i dont bcuz i think, there guna know u feel akward…….its a battle i always lose w. myself

Family Watching Movie White-Knuckles It Through Unexpected Sex Scene

BETHEL PARK, PA—A routine Schaeffer family movie night took a sudden and deeply uncomfortable turn Thursday when the family of four was forced to white-knuckle its way through an unanticipated sex scene, household sources confirmed.

According to reports, an intense awkwardness descended upon the Schaeffers’ living room when, approximately 75 minutes into a PG-13 action-adventure thriller they had been enjoying, a brief scene of sexual content appeared, leaving the parents and their two school-age children with no choice but to sit there together and plow through it.

“Ahem…” said father Stan Schaeffer, 46, clearing his throat after the film’s hero pulled his love interest in close for a long, tender kiss, which reportedly made the family members agonizingly aware of each other’s breathing and proximity, abruptly ending the carefree mood of what had until then been a relaxing evening. “Um.”

“Hmm,” he added, almost inaudibly, gritting his teeth and diverting his glance from the screen for a moment.

Sources said the awkward experience was made even more unbearable by the fact that the family had been exchanging casual remarks throughout the film, but then fell completely quiet once it became clear the two characters on their television were about to have sex. Though the silence was reportedly grueling, the Schaeffers nonetheless hunkered down, gripped their seats tightly, and showed no outward acknowledgement of the onscreen intimacy.

The scene, which lasted 19 seconds, is reported to have felt much, much longer.

As soon as the romantic sequence began, the family members, though at ease and comfortable just moments before, appeared to become acutely aware of their physical postures, self-consciously freezing themselves into stiff, uncomfortable positions while waiting anxiously for the scene to end.

Accounts have confirmed that around the 11-second mark, Noah Schaeffer, 12, considered making a joke about the action-packed movie’s amorous turn, but ultimately decided to remain quiet, reasoning that an attempt to relieve the tension with humor would likely backfire.

Similarly, sources said, 45-year-old Diane Schaeffer considered interrupting and asking her kids if they would like a snack, but then realized that making any sound or movement at all would only serve to draw attention to the family’s embarrassment, thereby making it even worse.

According to sources, as the film’s hero removed the woman’s shirt so that she was standing before him in nothing but a bra, Sophie Schaeffer, 15, exchanged a pained glance with her brother—the only instance of eye contact noted through the entire viewing of the sex scene.

At one point, when the camera began to cut away from the passionate embrace, reports indicate the family members felt a brief sense of relief, but their nerve-wracking agony returned immediately when the scene’s next shot revealed the couple was now on a bed and engaged in intercourse beneath its sheets.

As the characters’ lovemaking grew increasingly urgent, the Schaeffers were reportedly buckling down and hanging on tight, steeling themselves with the knowledge that this was a PG-13 movie and that its adult content had to be—just had to be—over any second now.

The family was last seen letting out deep sighs of relief as the depiction of intimacy was interrupted by a barrage of gunfire and the film’s villains crashing through the bedroom window, mercifully returning the story to a scene of graphic violence.

Family’s Euphemism For Genitals Really Weird

‘They Call Them Dinkies,’ Sources Say

 

HYANNIS, MA—Following dinner at the home of Stan and Linda Paulson and their three children, alarmed houseguest Brendan Murphy told reporters Wednesday that the local family’s preferred euphemism for human genitalia is apparently the word “dinky.” “The first couple times it came up, I had no idea what they were talking about, and then suddenly it hit me: They call them dinkies,” said Murphy, explaining that his confusion began during the family’s discussion of a baseball player who had been hit just below the waist by a line drive. “I mean…dinkies. How do you get there?” Compounding his unease, Murphy said, was the fact that the youngest member of the family is 12 years old.

 

That Awkward feeling during sex scenes with family/friends


Do you get this?

That awful embarrassed feeling when a sex scene comes on in a film and you’re watching woth family, or friends.

My friend demanded we watch Irreversible, and I knew exactly when “that” horrid scene was coming, so I side stepped into the kitchen and pretended to potch about until it finished.

Not just with the above film, but with any soft or hard sex scene, I find myself going red and trying not to stare at the screen or make eye contact with friend/family.

I’m 32!!

Do you know ‘that’ feeling?

 

I generally don’t like sex scenes in films anyway, well comedies are the exception but the whole boy meets girl now we’re going to shag missionary style partially clothed or with the blanket up to our ears whilst the camera slowly fades in and out between close ups of facial features, hands and bedroom ornaments…

It’s just boring and adds nothing, kissing, door slams shut then you move onto morning with someone cooking bacon.

That’s how I’d film a sex scene.

 

As a teen if I was watching something like that with my mother I’d squirm until it was over, she would love it. Embarrass me on purpose by saying “Ohhhh isn’t he gorgeous naked!”  Just waiting for a reaction.

Holiday Movies Ranked For Potential Awkward Family Viewings · NYU Local

Anna Karenina

How’s the movie? Pretty to look at, but over-stylized to the point of being emotionally disengaging. Jude Law is actually kind of great in it, though.

Level of potential awkwardness? Whole lots of potentially uncomfortable sex scenes in there that somehow manage to be more boring than anything, but probably worth avoiding all the same.

Skyfall

How’s the movie? It’s pretty damn awesome.

Level of potential awkwardness? Expect any homophobic relatives to get visibly uncomfortable when Javier Bardem’s baddie starts feeling up Bond. Otherwise, only the usual (read: kind of misogynistic) Bond antics to make things uncomfortable.

 

 

Teens:Do you feel awkward when a kissing/sex scene comes on when your watching a movie with your parents?

I was just sitting with my mom watching Atonement,and I have a big crush on James McAvoy,soo I was really enjoying watching,until THAT scene comes on where they have sex against a bookcase.My mom just kept watching but I escaped to my room,pretending I needed to go get something. SO DAMN AWKWARD. I hovered about until the scene was over,and came through again.

 

 

It’s not really very awkward. I saw “Precious” and “Fish Tank” — the first with my mom and dad at different times, and the second just with my dad — and they had to do with sex, and sexual abuse on a minor, and I was fine watching those with them, but I did, in “Fish Tank,” have to hold my dad’s hand because I on the edge of my seat. However, it does sometimes get awkward. I was watching “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” at home with my parents one night, and in the beginning, the lead character is having sex with a bunch of different woman, one of whom was moaning throughout the sex, and then she said, very calmly, “I just came.” My parents both started laughing hysterically, and I didn’t get it, so they paused the movie and explained to me why it was funny. So, I suppose the sex and/or kissing scene — I mean, kissing really isn’t that big of a deal — isn’t as much of a problem as the conversations about the sex scenes. I’ve learnt, though, to keep my mouth shut about sex scenes when I’m watching them with my parents.

All the best ♥

 

Yes! This reminds me,
Yesterday i was watching desperate housewives and Bree and that man were kissing on the bed and all, and then in another scene they kept going about condoms and having sex. 
Even though my mom was occupied with her laptop i was still very uncomfortable if she would look at the TV for a sec, i wanted the scene to be done but it just kept going on and i was about to punch the TV in.

I know now to NEVER watch skins when my mom is in the house because last time a sex scene came up i was like ”AHEM MOM WANT SOME TEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?”
LOL

 

TV: *moans*
Me: So mom… What do you think of my new watch?
Mom: Oh it looks fine.
Me: I think it’s cool.
Mom: Well I…
TV: *stops the moaning*
Me: Shh! We’re watching a movie!

 

lol yes. it doesn’t help that my mum says ‘ooh. if only real sex that were that good!’ and this is infront of my friends as well *facepalm*.

 

Not really. I pretty much keep starring expressionless at the screen until it’s over.Or if I look at my mom and we laugh or we start making fun of it …🙂

 

Yeah!🙂 I really understand what you mean! I know my mum feels awkward, she`s says to my dad – “Can you check when ……….. is on?” – everytime when there is a rude scene!

 

that is the most awkward
if it happens to me, i will leave the area, as if i have work outside.
you have lot of potential, to ask wonderfull questions. i like this question. 
i felt for it, but didnot have a thought to put it as question

 

My dad looks at me and says “That’s how you were made” 
me: O.o

 

Lol if there’s a sex scene my mum and dad always say 
“Kids turn around”
 
…and we turn our (me, my little sis and little bro) necks so we are facing the wall and close our eyes until they say “you can look now”
 
LOL I’ve been doing that since i was really little – I’m 16 now. In habit I do that at the cinema and my friends are like what are you doing? Haha i love my parents

 

He would say something like “I don’t think this is a movie you should be watching”

 

lol, one time i started watching old school (the uncensored one) and there was a really bad sex scene.. like porn almost.. lol and my mom was like “OOPS WELL NOW AT LEAST I DON’T HAVE TO GIVE YOU ‘THE TALK’!” lol

 

My mom usually slams her hand on my eyes. She like covers my eyes and i’m like, “i know what’s going on. i’m almost 16.”

I summoned the courage to

talk

to my kids about the

I took the family out to dinner

Today, I gave my daughter the sex

talk

. Barely 10 minutes later,

her public Facebook status read: “My mom’s a total pedo.” and

after she mentioned the

talk

, her friend posted, “That’s sexual

harassment. You can sue for that.” Clearly I’ve failed as a parent.

FML

Today, I was watching a movie with my family in which a

character said “Fuck you, dad.” My dad then slapped me over the

head to get my attention and said, “Never

talk

to your father like

that.” Okay, dad. FML

Today, I got the sex

talk

from my dad. It wouldn’t have been so

bad if he hadn’t said “It’s not the size of the stick, it’s how you use

it.” I’m a girl. FML

Today, I walked in on my daughter hugging and sobbing into her

Edward Cullen cut-out. She won’t tell me what’s wrong, yet she

can confide in a creepy fictional s

talk

er whose facial expression is

locked to “chronically constipated”. Where did I go wrong? FML

Today, my 15-year-old daughter’s pregnancy test came back

positive. I wanted to know who the father is, so I could sit the twoof them down to

talk

the situation through with them. She isn’t

sure if it’s her best friend, or our neighbor’s son. FML

Today, while having a serious

talk

with my father, he said, “Son,

you’re only alive because of a faulty, off-brand condom.” FML

Today, after discovering that our son is already sexually active, I

asked my husband to have a

talk

with him. “Remember, son, it’s

all about the clit”, wasn’t what I had in mind. FML

Today, my 19-year-old son told me his girlfriend is pregnant, and

was diagnosed with an STD. He’s sure that he’s the father. He’s

also sure he doesn’t have an STD, because he’s a virgin. I had to

give him the sex

talk

that his school never did, as well as explain

to him that his girlfriend is a cheater. FML

More like ignorance because no one ever sat this poor kid down

and gave him “the talk”

You should have talked to him about sex. Why leave it up to the

school system? You are the parent, it’s called parenting

Today, I walked in on my mom drenched in tears, barely able to

speak. I ran to get her some tissues and a nice cup of tea to calm

her down. After a few minutes of sitting in silence, I asked her if

she wanted to

talk

about what happened. She watched an episode

of Gossip Girl. FML

Today, I saw a folder on my son’s PC named “PussyPictures”. I sat

him down for a

talk

, only to be told they contained pictures of the

James Bond character Pussy Galore, for his essay about sexism in

movies. He’s now mocking me for “having a dirty mind”. FML

Today, my grandma took it upon herself to give me the sex

talk

After explaining the mechanics in excessive detail, she said I

shouldn’t be afraid to sleep around. Apparently, I need to be

comfortable with the man who’ll be “conning me into blowing him

for the next 50 years.” FML

.

Today, my grandma gave me a sex

talk

. Not the usual one, either.

This one was about blowjobs. I had to sit politely as she

explained it’s something all women have to learn if they want a

well-behaved husband, but that it’s an “acquired taste”. Gag me.

FML

Today, my family threw me my 21st birthday party. My grandma’s

gift turned out to be a pack of condoms. “Not that you’ll ever get

to use them,” she said, turning and walking off, cackling

maniacally. Now I remember why I never

talk

to the old crone.

FML

Today, my mom decided the time was right to give me the

sex

talk

. Towards the end, I had to excuse myself to the

bathroom. As I came back, I overheard my dad telling my mom

that I’m so unpopular, the only time I’ll get laid is when I’m being

put in a coffin. FML

Today, after having a long

talk

with my mother about gays, she

told me that she was totally open. I felt completely relieved, being

gay myself. Seconds later, she said, “But not for you. I want you to

find me a nice girl that can give me lots of grand kids.” FML

KNowing all the hip shit and not getting caught out, been the cool

mum/dad in the know

Today, I went to a suicide prevention walk with a girl I like. Before

the walk, we bought balloons to set free when they called the

names of the deceased. To buy a balloon, you had to write a

name on a sheet. Ap

parent

ly, you weren’t supposed to write your

own. They called my name. FML
