I start with the differences of gender and work from there. And it is work. It is highly uncomfortable and embarrassing. For all involved. But it has to be done.
This year, THE TALK was hinged on the so-called "War on Women" that has been announced in the media, not the least, Comedy Central's Daily Show and Colbert Report which both cynically laugh at the term but also make sure the outrage at women's reproductive rights are being threatened is fueled. Example below:

But I'm a guy. What do I know?
I read a very good article this morning written by a woman, Simcha Fisher, on speaking about sex in a Catholic context to those who aren't Catholic. Not a lot of answers here but some good thoughts. Fisher prophetically writes:
There will be a big mess. It's what's has to happen. Can't go under it, can't go around it, gotta go through it. Let's not approach the conversation about the Church's views on sexuality with that fabled "contraceptive mentality," holding back what is good and poweful about our Faith, trying to control our interactions with the secular world too rigidly. At the same time, let's at least give a thought to prudence: you may think you're being all inspired and radical when you just open your mouth and leave it up to God to make something good come of it, but maybe some discretion is really in order.
Typical woman. Discretion and prudence. MAN SMASH!
