An 87-year-old grandmother sent her granddaughter a practical letter two years ago telling her specific do’s and don’t about sex and how to find her soulmate.
I adore this grandmother’s honesty with her granddaughter, and it’s useful information.
Here are some of the tips she gave her granddaughter via The Nerve.com, where the full letter is published:
“4. Always make sure the man’s penis is CLEAN. Make sure he washes it with soap and water before coming to bed.
5. Many men are PIGS. They want sex every day! You are not obligated to say “yes” to please him if you do not feel up to it. You never do anything unless you want to. To pacify the pig, give him manual stimulation!
7. Some men are pre-mature ejaculators; that is very frustrating and bad for the female. He needs help to learn to control himself until the female is ready.
16. Hope you find the happiness you deserve. There should be love, respect, admiration, trust, and a mental and physical connection. If you find “true love,” you will live happily every after. That is true.”
While that is certainly an uncomfortable conversation, wouldn’t that information have been helpful. I applaud this grandmother’s honesty and her commitment to communicate with her granddaughter. A letter is a great way to do it without having to be face-to-face.
I hope to be that honest with my daughters when the time comes.
So what do you think? Would you want or give that kind of specific information to your daughter or granddaughter? What advice do you think is important to share (keep it as clean as possible)? What would tell a son or grandson?
