At the request of several TGC followers on social media, my own outline of “The Talk” is published below. This outline is specifically designed for a young teenage boy with anxiety, already generally familiar with puberty and oriented toward facts and details, in such a way as to make the sexual act the central point of discussion without too much risk of overloading his anxiety with enough of the pieces to be putting the puzzle together himself. The goal was to put the main focus of the puzzle together with only the necessary pieces, then to provide the other pieces for the complete picture, or even to reframe some pieces in context of the whole afterward.
This approach is not recommended for all audiences.
