Jessica Biel has no problem educating her two-year-old son about sex, and shockingly most experts agree… to a point. Once your child starts communicating verbally, sex should be a topic on the table, if your child brings it up.

Usually at that age the conversation is limited to such topics as touching themselves and taking off their clothes in public, according to the experts at WebMD.

But children might also ask such questions as where do babies come from> Or,how does a baby get out of your belly?

“Never avoid a “teachable moment,” the Web site counsels. “Dive in and offer accurate information whenever your child sashays anywhere near the topic of sex. Don’t wait for the point-blank question to be asked.”

For her part, Jessica believes there’s “no shame” in learning about your body from an early age and she’s already talking to two-year-old Silas, her child with singer Justin Timberlake.

“I have a two-and-a-half-year-old [and] we’re starting [sexual education] now. We’re using technical terms … we shower together, and [we say], ‘This is what I’ve got. This is what you’ve got,'” she said at a 2018 MAKERS Conference in Los Angeles Tuesday, (Feb. 6)

“We just talk about it. I know it’s really young, but I really believe that if you start this early, there’s no shame,” she adds.

She elaborated:

“I don’t want to tell him, ‘Keep your private parts,’ and this and that. It’s a beautiful thing. You have it and mine is different and it’s cool, man. We have to respect ourselves and respect each other. So I believe it starts really young. [I’m] still learning too, [but] it’s just made everything better because I feel more confident to just tell the truth.”

The 35-year-old actress recently appeared in a hilarious sex education video alongside Chelsea Handler.

It encourages women to get to know their bodies.

She says she’s “always trying to have a higher sexual IQ.” Her best piece of advice when it comes to sex is: “Don’t do it in the ocean.”

“I feel confident to say, ‘You know what? I’m not feeling it,’ or, ‘This doesn’t feel good’ or, ‘I like this.’ And I think that takes a long time.”

About 47 percent of high school students have had sexual intercourse, down from 54 percent in 1991, according to the “2011 Youth Risk Behavior Survey,” conducted every two years by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
