What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Sex, Teens, and the Art of Parenting

If you don’t listen to The Moth podcast on NPR,  you’re really missing out.  Each podcast is comprised of 10-15-minute stories, told on stage without notes before a live audience.  I have heard a lot of great Moth stories over the years, but this one really resounded with me.  I have a good friend whose twin sons will be 16 this year, and I can only imagine what a struggle that is.  Don’t get me wrong.  They are wonderful boys, and I love them completely, but I can’t imagine surviving a conversation about sex with one teen, much less two.

This charming and funny story is a beautifully-told tale of how a father takes upon himself to educate his twin teenage sons about sex in the internet age.  Enjoy!
