If you’re too shy to tell your children how babies are made, perhaps the new video from Cut called “Parents Talk to Their Kids About The Birds and the Bees for the First Time” can help. The viral video has received at least 2,307,863 views in the two days since it was uploaded to YouTube, and the awkward reactions of some of the children or even the parents in the video are making it the talk of the interwebs.
When the variety of parents talk to their kids about sex for the first time, some are stunned that their children know more than the adults expect them to know. Other kids are so embarrassed with talk of private parts and learning about the actual process that making a baby entails that one covers his ears in an attempt not to hear anymore.
As reported by Yahoo, the kids in the video that learn about how babies are made for the first time from their parents appear to range in age from about 5 to 10 years old — and the funniest parts also include watching the parents’ bashfulness at naming certain body parts, or describing the sex process itself. One young girl is grossed out at the thought of her dad’s male part going into her mom’s “pocket,” and she lets them know with a resolute “Ew.”
The video acts as a great prompt or discussion tool for parents who know they need to tell their children about the baby-making process, but keep putting it off. One little girl looks surprised to know the details and add-ons to what her parents had taught her about how babies were made up until that point, which was that God brings the babies from heaven and puts them in the belly of the mommy.
Not surprisingly, a couple of kids wondered if the babies came out of the mommy’s back end. Produced, directed, and edited by Cut.com, the “Where Do Babies Come From?” video isn’t the first viral fare offered by the website. Their “100 Years of Beauty in 1 Minute” video, which was a time-lapsed vehicle showing a model’s hair and makeup beauty routine created to match each decade from 1910 to 2010, went seriously viral.
Their video showing “Grandmas Smoking Weed for the First Time (Extended Cut)” also went viral, as reported by the Inquisitr, and has received more than 18 million views in the month that the video was uploaded. Seems the folks at Cut have their fingers on the pulse of what the YouTube-viewing audience wants these days.
