Jane Fonda, 74, is penning a sex education book for kids. Earlier this year, Fonda said that she was having the best sex of her life with fellow geriatric and record producer Richard Perry.
Fonda told the Canadian press: “I did very badly as a parent. I was not good. I think I was a few years too late. But I didn’t know enough at the time, that it’s not about waiting and then having the quote-unquote big talk. You have to start young, when they’re young, and in an age-appropriate way to begin to talk about things sexual so it’s no big deal.”
Popular VideoCongress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?
“I’ve spent a lot of time with kids and with parents and it’s just stunning how little they know and how nervous parents are about talking. There’s a lot of books about plumbing and how everything works, but… I talk about sexuality in the context of identity. That it isn’t just about intercourse, that to be human is to be sexual. There’s nothing dirty or weird about it, and it’s important to understand it very deeply.”
