Sex is a subject that will not typically be discussed between a youth and
an adult unless the youth feels confident that the adult will not sell
him out to anyone else. I am fortunate to have the trust and comfort
level with most of my scouts and we have discussed this and other
sensitive topics in both the SM conference and off to the side at other
activities. I do not solicite these discussions but let them talk and I
listen. There always comes a point when I ask if they want my opinion.
If they do, I give it. Lets see, a few topics that continue to resurface
is that girls are from another planet and my favorite advice, date and
marry your best friend (female ofcourse). You would be surprised at what
a novel concept they think the latter is :)
