So when exactly is the right time to talk about the birds and the bees with your kids, and how should you bring up the topic of sexual education?
For former Mediacorp actress Jacelyn Tay, 46, that was the question she faced on the second day of 2022.
According to Jacelyn's Instagram post on Jan 3, her 10-year-old son, Zavier Wong, brought up the topic of sex the night before, asking her if it felt good.
Jacelyn recounted how she answered her son, revealing that while she did not skirt around the issue when answering his question, she made sure to share with him her beliefs on casual sex too, which she compared to “satisfying the body wrongly with drugs”.
"Casual sex might even destroy your health 'cos people who anyhow have sex with anyone are highly likely to get sexually transmitted viruses and diseases (sic). Not only your physical body is contaminated, your soul & your spirit will contaminate too (sic),” wrote Jacelyn.
Jacelyn also added that she told her son not to “kiss or touch a girl” if he’s not married to her as it could “lead to sex”.
