“Sweetie, I saw that Walgreens is having a sale on jumbo-sized rubbers, so of course I thought of you!”

March 25th, 2011 · 104 comments

“First off,” writes submitter, who we’ll call Lorelai, “my parents and I have never, ever, ever had any kind of discussion regarding ANYTHING having to do with sex. Mostly because, well, they are my 60-something-year-old parents. And my father is my preacher.”

Today, Lorelai is a 33-year-old “volleyball-coaching, home-owning, full-time working, Girl-Scout-Troop-leading” mother of a “well-behaved, smart, friendly, athletic, violin-playing” daughter, who happens to be the product of unplanned pregnancy 11 years ago.

“Although it took my parents some time to accept the decision I made to raise her (successfully, so far!) on my own, I thought we had moved on,” our submitter says. “Apparently not. My long-distance, very serious, boyfriend will be visiting in a few days, and I guess they wanted to make their stance clear on the matter, eleven years later.”

Happy Valentine's Day! Go buy some Magnums! Love, Mom & Dad

Happy Valentine's Day! Go buy some Magnums! Love, Mom & Dad

Lorelai says the follow-up letter from her Mom clarifying to meaning of the card was even more awkward. Sample excerpt:

I guess our gesture was our way of saying ‘We love you and want you to have a healthy sex life, but be careful, because we don’t want you to be hurt like you were before.’

Adds Lorelai: “Maybe some people have this kind of relationship with their parents, but, well, I definitely don’t.”

      My grandmother does this, too. When I asked her why, she said that it is because it is the part of the card that she really wanted to “say” to me. I think we need to be open to the possibility that these aren’t sarcastic quotes.

      No offense, but if she really wanted to say to you what she really wanted to say, they why don’t she write it down in her own WORDS instead of quoting a few phrases here and there. Would make much more sense.

      Tickle – technically, the Planned Parenthood cutoff hasn’t happened yet. See, it was an amendment to the year-long continuing resolution for FY11. It passed House but not Senate. Senate is working up their own version of a year long CR, and they’ll work out the differences in conference. Given that Senate has said Oh Hell No to the idea, I think it unlikely that the Democratic-controlled Senate will allow it to pass. We’ll have a government shutdown first. Even if they did, it would apply only to FY11, which is already half-over.

      So in other words, more political posturing than actual impact.

      And none of this would have been necessary had the last Congress done their f-in job and passed an appropriation BEFORE the start of the FY. /rant

    I’m feeling generous in the acceptance of Good Intentions today. Team parents for trying, and realizing she’s a woman, albeit it many years too late.

    Maybe if they did have this type of relationship years ago, she wouldn’t have gotten preggers the first time.

    Maybe next year they’ll realize she has grown up and been managing her birth control all these years since the first slip up.

    At least they didn’t say anything about going to hell for her wicked, wicked ways.

      I dunno, I don’t think that most people would typically refer to the right brain and left brain as “both brains”. I suspect most people correctly view them as yin & yang, the two sides to the coin that is the overstretched metaphor brain.

      The mention of “both brains” in Emily & Richard’s card most likely refers to the traditional (“head”) brain that we know and love, as well as the so-called “gut brain” — which has never struck me as particularly smart, but somehow it ended up running the country for eight years so what do I know?

      See, I don’t see the insult at all. I see an older, conservative mom, trying to signal that she accepts that her daughter is having sex outside marriage. That’s a big deal for older religious people. I think it was an awkward, but heartfelt, gesture.

      Not to mention the coupons. Older people love those things — my mom saves them to give to me. Not because she thinks I can’t remember to buy pasta, but because we’re trying to raise 2 kids on one income and she wants to help however she can.

      Lorelai, someday you’ll be glad you had parents who sent you cards saying they loved and were proud of you.

      It doesn’t say how she was hurt, either. Maybe there was a real mess up with the father of her child, or other relationships in her life, or just where she was psychologically at the time – maybe her parents bore witness to all that. Maybe they are acknowledging that her serious relationship really is serious – I think the “Gotta laugh a little” was maybe a way of just lightening the fact that they sent coupons for contraception, which is obviously an awkward topic/thing to do in the family. Maybe the mother is aware that her daughter has competently handled her own contraception for the last 11 years, but didn’t know how to send the coupons across without it appearing that she was making a judgmental gesture; was worried about the gesture, and dug herself into a hole with the clarification, a bit like this comment. I guess that Lorelai knows her parents a whole lot better than any of us.

    I’m guessing that it took 11 years to figure out that abstinence only sex education doesn’t work….

    Seriously, though, my parents are a little like this too. No, they would never send me condoms. In fact we had the big sex ed talk when the very first time I asked a question about tampons. I think I was 5. But the similarity is the way they treat their kids as if they were, well, kids. I guess you’re always Mommy’s Baby, even when you’re old enough to have babies or even grandbabies of your own.

    There is no way to accurately describe that awkwardness. There are some things you should never have to talk to your parents about, and especially at an adult age, this would qualify more than ever. It’s adding insult to injury with the Magnum coupon, too, in the world of awkward. Did she send a card back with Depends coupons?

    See, this is why “never ever ever ever” having a convo about sex with your kids doesn’t prevent them from “ever ever ever ever” accidentally getting pregnant. Hopefully she’ll learn from this and actually talk to her daughter about it. I’m betting she didn’t tell her mom how the card bothered her either. I would send them a coupon for Depends, because you know they’re getting up in age and you want them to be prepared. With a smiley face for good measure :)

    I don’t know if Lorelai’s mother is judging her for sex life, but she certainly is poking fun at her daughter for a mistake she made a long time ago and not-so-subtly reminding her to put a wrapper on it. That’s the insulting part – that her mother even kind of thinks that her 33-year-old daughter who raises a child, has a job, and owns a home is too irresponsible to prevent any other pregnancies.

    It’s nice when parents care and sex doesn’t have to be an off-limit topic of discussion, but holding a mistake over your children well into their 30s, even when they’ve proven that they’re more mature, is ridiculous.

      Ugly enough to only have a long-distance ‘very serious’ boyfriend instead of one who can stomach her on a day to day basis. From the sound of it she hasn’t even met this man, yet still considers it ‘serious’ enough to state it in an insecure, overcompensating kind of way. I don’t know anything about her, except what she has written & submitted and I, like her parents, question her ability to make good decisions. I believe it’s quite possible that she HASN’T had relations in over a decade. I hate that we’ll never know how this turns out! I’m thinking he either a) never shows up, leaving her heartbroken. Or b) he shows up, tells her everything she wants to hear in exchange for emptying her bank account. Whether she gets pregnant or not doesn’t even matter, but since she’s still rebelling against her parents all these years later, I’m leaning toward another bun in the oven.

    You’ve got to like that mom is at least giving the boyfriend props, what with the Magnum coupon and all. Not that this isn’t horribly awkward if serious, but it’s got to be a backhanded joke.

      That’s pretty funny, but I think you might be giving the mom too much credit. ;-)

      I noticed the coupon’s for a 36-pack.
      Is boyfriend coming for an extended visit, or does Mom assume these two have a marathon weekend planned?

    Ohhh honey, I think we have the same parents. Christian parent shame is as epic as it comes. My mom once called me a hussy because she saw a boy touch my butt (yes, a hussy, because “slut” would have clearly been an un-Christian thing to say).

    Oh Lorelai, your parents are just letting you know that your first child out of wedlock gets a pass, but any additional ones go straight to Hell.

    Either Mom has a dirty mind or Father Dad is really well-hung.

    Why else would Mom suggest Magnums and assume it hurt 11 years ago if they’ve never talked about it?

    Although I enjoyed reading this, I think it sucks that Lorelai would post this for the world to see. Her parents went out on a limb to show a side of themselves that was caring and humorous… and completely well intentioned. Just the fact, alone, that they are religious folks made this even more endearing. Going against the word of God & securing their one way tickets to eternal damnation, just to show their daughter that they have a more open mind than she gives them credit for… well, it made me feel warm and fuzzy inside. I think she should embrace their kind words, go get the cut rate spermicide they so kindly suggested & enjoy her humpfest, knowing that good ole mom and dad are right there cheering her on!

      My god is David Bowie, and he supports all the protected humping one can manage. Or lack of humping, if that floats one’s boat. Although he does discourage people trying to make things their business that really aren’t their business. Speaking of which, I know you’ll just love this new hemorrhoid cream. Hey, I’m just trying to be kind by showing an interest in your anus!

      I know how you hate puns, but I figured a pun was better than an argument which would have amounted to much ado about nothing.

  • #33   Quite Contrary

    I’m pushing 50. My mother and I have never discussed sex since I was 15 when she said, “I was a virgin when I got married and I expect you to be as well.” While I have never been married, I lived with a boyfriend for a while. Since I’ve never married, my mother thinks I’m still a virgin. I’m now convinced Lorelei and I are cousins.

    I think this was just Mom’s way of telling her daughter not to settle for a man who doesn’t “measure up”.

    I hate tempting fate. If I were Loralie I’d have kept my mouth shut until my boyfriend was back home and I was sure I actually wasn’t pregnant again. Having to make THAT call would have been awkward.
