There’s nothing quite so cringe-inducing, stomach-churning and scarring. Especially if you had a mum who described sex as “a really special hug with lots of wiggling and good tickling feelings”, and a dad who suspiciously suffered from a coughing-fit and exited the room whenever the “where did I come from” question popped up.
It could be worse though.
What’s the only thing worse than parents talking about wiggling and tickling feelings, you ask? Them using a picture book that is so graphic and detailed that it makes you want to sit in a bath of detergent for a week.
Enter this particularly graphic sex-ed book from 1968, which leaves no stone unturned.

“With the help of sun and rain,” so cuuuuuute! Right?
Hold up, because things are about to get weird.
REALLY FREAKIN’ WEIRD.
You might be wondering what a hen and a rooster are doing in a children’s sex book. We wondered that too. Don’t you worry though – that rooster’s mighty sperm (which is inexplicably chilling on the floor next to his foot) is about to be put to good use.
