Dr. Berman says an easy way to start the pleasure conversation is to point out specific body parts to your daughter on a diagram, encouraging her to explore her own body in private. "You are the best ones to teach them," Dr. Berman says. "You are the one who can incorporate your values."
Still nervous? Dr. Berman says you may need to become more familiar with your own body. "Learn all of this stuff yourself," she says. "When you are comfortable, that's when you can really raise a sexually empowered daughter."
