Teyana Taylor is not ready to have “the talk” about the birds and bees with her daughter, Iman Tayla, just yet. Nevertheless, she’s preparing her mind for that day.
“I was a virgin for a very long time,” the celebrity mom tells PEOPLE. “I still want to be prepared for whatever it is. If she comes to me and says, ‘Mom, I’m ready to have sex.’ I might pass out, secretly,” Teyana admits. Still, “I don’t ever want her to be afraid to tell me that’s what she’s ready to do. All I could do is give her my advice … [I] just [would want] to make sure that’s what she’s really ready for, and that’s a step she really wants to take, and make sure it’s with a person that loves her unconditionally.”
Make no mistake. Teyana is not a fan of absolute promiscuity. “Of course, as parents, you would like your kids to go as far as possible [without having sex],” she tells media. “But when it’s time, you can’t run them away. I definitely don’t want to run her away.”
