Win a special “love” hamper for you and your partner (read on and you’ll see what I mean)

August 17, 2015

Let’s talk about sex. Or rather, let’s talk about talking about sex to our kids. Whatever their age, perhaps they’ve started asking where babies come from, or maybe they’ve started asking about their private parts. What do you tell them? What worries you most when it comes to your kids’ sexual education, now, or down the line?

Share your questions here and you could win a Durex hamper worth R1000, that will include products for pleasure and protection.

Durex wants your questions and will answer them on CONNECT-ED Buddy, part of Durex’s CONNECT-ED programme, a high school CSI (Corporate Social Investment) initiative, run in association with the Gauteng Department of Education, which aims to provide high school learners with the knowledge required to enable behaviour change specific to healthy sexual activity.

Your questions, and advice from CONNECT-ED Buddy could be published or talked about in newspapers and radio. So, it doesn’t matter if you think your child is too young or that your questions are quite specific to your situation – just ask away!

Questions could relate to:

  • Talking to your children about sex – when, how and who
  • Your kids and sex – eg safe sex
  • Your own sex life – what to do if kids ask

To enter to win:

Simply ask your question below (there’s no right or wrong question), and you’ll be entered into a draw to win a Durex hamper worth R1 000 (if the thought of a Durex hamper makes you blush, then why not enter for someone else?)

The giveaway closes on Friday 4 September at 9am, and the winner will be notified on the Rattle and Mum Facebook page, and then emailed. This giveaway is open to South African residents only.

    How would you encourage your teen to have safe sex? There are so many diseases and the chances of getting pregnant are so high? How would you make it “cool” to have safe sex? I don’t think that they (teenagers) think it might happen to them and take that chance anyway.

    What’s the right thing to say about sex and the wrong thing. My daughter is 13 and son 11 . I’ve spoke to them about a few things I’m so clueless I’ve never been spoken to about sex by my parents I read and learned at 17 I was so clueless I wish someone had spoken to me so I want my kids to be informed with the right knowledge coming from me so what’s the best way to do that without making it to uncomfortable .

    How do you balance informing a young child about sex (specifically to be aware and pro-active in dangerous situations) but also keeping them ignorant (e.g. protected) as long as possible?
