Response from Dr. Frascino
Your dad said having sex with a girl will reduce your memory??? Gosh, I'd hate to know what would happen if you had sex with a boy. Perhaps your arms would fall off???
I'm sure your dad means well and he's most likely just trying to discourage you from having sex, but what he told you is not true. I suggest you have a chat with your dad and advise him you know that memory loss thing just isn't true. If he protests and claims it is, show him a copy of this post. I strongly urge all parents to be honest with their kids when discussing sex. Providing false information leads to distrust and ultimately can do harm.
