The "birds and the bees" conversation is a rite of passage for every parent. Although most prefer to put it off for as long as possible — given the awkward nature of the topic — this isn't always possible as kids seem to come with a built-in list of questions about everything under the sun. On the bright side, such scenarios often result in hilarious anecdotes that could make even the most stonehearted Grinch crack a smile. A bunch of these rib-tickling conversations was shared on Twitter when one netizen kick-started a discussion about funny stories involving the first sex talk with kids.

It all began when Twitter user @meganmuircoyle tweeted about her kids' reaction to the topic. "Reaction from my kids after explaining how sex works: 'You've done this THREE TIMES?'" Megan tweeted. The hilarious exchange soon had more parents sharing funny memories of their kids finding out about the birds and the bees, resulting in one of the best Twitter threads.
