When Elizabeth Banks sat down to have the sex talk with her older son Max, 10, she was inspired by a screensaver. You know the one, a bucolic depiction of a mama whale frolicking with her calf. And she used that as a jumping off point to matter of factly explain the basics of reproduction to her nonplussed. Very much whales having sex. And then I sort of let him extrapolate from there what that meant.
The clitoris. Boob jobs. Body image. Well, you know, I have a 10 year old son and two things happened. One, I thought about when I got my period when I was not quite So my birthday is February. As you hear in the podcast, I got my period on Thanksgiving. Somebody told me that a lot of girls in fifth grade get their period and my son is going into fifth grade. This is going to come at me so quick.
He was very empathetic and he was interested and he was just so caring and giving. And I thought, I need to figure out how to make my sons into those kind of young men who help out their partners. Broadly, the podcast is about sexuality and our relationship to it — shame, fear, excitement, what have you. Sex and our bodies for women are very complicated and they seem very uncomplicated for men.
I tend to try and make my artistic endeavors entertaining and lighthearted and humorous, which was for sure part of the tone of the podcast. A post shared by Elizabeth Banks elizabethbanks. How did you talk to your son about sex? Help me! Help other moms! I use animals. My son very specifically, when he was eight years old, asked me in the car. And we were on Cape Cod and we were talking about going on a whale watch. I knew I was going to use animals. I literally talked about how the whales, when they have to have a baby, the whale with the penis has to get with the whale with the vagina.
And the penis has to go in the vagina, in order to push the sperm into near the egg. They have to get very, very close together and they have to dance in the water. I love your episode about periods. Or pretty much at all.
I loved talking to my mom. I loved it. We both loved it. We got much closer after having that conversation, but we were very close obviously in order to have that conversation, but it really was great to just be, do something creative with my mom. That was really special to me. And she did not want us to go through life without that information. She believes information is power. It came from my heart and my mind and my ideas and my ambition.
Not only did I grow up in a society that prized my physical appearance more than most anything else, but then I entered an industry that did the same and reinforced it. I still care a lot. Believe me, I want to look hot and I want to be my best version of myself. But I feel that I have a counterweight in the world, which is the sum of my work.
Does that ever stop? I stopped doing that a long, long time ago. I really try not to do that. Do I want to be in a bathing suit with my girlfriends around the pool? Even from people that I love that love that I know love me. Bringing it back to your earlier point about raising empathetic, kind, smart men. How are you going about it? I really try not to give a ton of parenting advice. Then let me know if I did a good job.
I do not lie to my kids about anything. I think we have come to a place where we are too protective of what they know. So I do not ever lie to my. I do it at night when I tuck them into bed. We always ask leading questions. Did anything make you laugh today? Did anything make you feel funny?
