Recently my wife and I realized that while our older son could recite the egg/sperm/donor story at age 2, we're not sure what our younger son knows about his beginnings. We decided to wait for a teachable moment to arrive, which happened one morning last week.
Procreative sex as part of a donor insemination may be a convenient delivery method, but for women in the LGBT community who are attracted to men, it can also be sexually satisfying. A friend of mine is in that very situation right now.
One day I looked up from the jaded wreckage of my umpteenth breakup and was deafened by the horror of my ticking biological clock. I was 35 and living a solitary life in a one-bedroom apartment in New York City.
