Meant to be Mint

The following post is rated R for Language and some (minor) sexual content. Reader discretion is advised.


When I was fourteen, I accompanied my mother to the drugstore to pick up a prescription for her. As we waited for it to be filled, I noticed the display of condoms under the counter. One of the boxes proudly proclaimed, "Mint Scented!" Confused (and still kinda innocent about a lot of things) I looked to my mother and asked, "why would anyone care what their condoms SMELLED like? Why mint scented?"

My mom looked at me, and gave a deep sigh. "That's the problem with you kids," she griped. "All you know about is fucking. That's not making love. You need to watch some pornos and see, THAT'S how you make love!"

I was fourteen, and my mom just told me to go watch porn!!! It was the first, and last, time I ever asked her about anything even remotely related to sex.

This was my role model people!

Okay, that totally made me laugh out loud! No really, literally laugh out loud...maybe I shouldn't have? ;)

I recall being about the same age and seeing scented and flavored condoms and thinking 'Whaaaaa?' and being weirded out by them. Heck, I'm 30 and I still don't get it. Maybe I should go watch a porn? *giggles*
