Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A conversation, usually between parent and child, about sex. May be occasioned by the question, "Where do babies come from?"
Comes in two flavours:
Awkward: A serious conversation that runs the gamut from mildly awkward to horribly painful, with the elder speaking nervously and the younger reaching for the Brain Bleach. The sexual acts and organs themselves are always described circumspectly. One frequent subversion is that the kid was asking for completely innocuous information, like what to put on the "Sex" line of a form.
Ironic: A humorous conversation in which the child proves to be far more versed in the subject than their parent, having already learned the Facts of Life from school, friends, and media, or even through firsthand experience. May end with the fascinated parents taking notes or interjecting "You can do that?" This subversion is common enough that it has become a trope in itself (which makes this an Undead Horse Trope).
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Most often found in Teen Dramas but also Played for Laughs in comedies.
Sometimes comic effect is added by the parent using toys (e.g. a G.I. Joe and a Barbie doll) as visual aids. (Please ignore the flaw in that arrangement...)
Occasionally, it's not played for laughs. This seems to be especially true when the child or teenager on the receiving end is a girl. She may be advised that her virginity is something that makes her valuable, and that losing it makes her lose that value...which she can never get back. Or, she may be advised that "boys only want one thing." She may also be advised that sex is a marital "chore" for making babies and/or keeping her husband satisfied, rather than something to be enjoyed for its own sake, or something where both partners can (and should) receive pleasure.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })A kid who's considered too young to know the Facts of Life might be told about the Delivery Stork instead.
Compare Sexual Euphemism. No relation to the all-female Talk Show of same name - for that, see here.

The young teenager Abby of Dangerously Chloe is just starting to notice boys, and her parents aren't around, so Chloe and Pandora resolve to give her The Talk. Which might be good if they weren't both succubi. Fortunately, they're not excessively evil as sex demons go, but unfortunately, they don't understand mortals very well either. Fortunately, Abby may be just cynical enough about them to survive the experience without permanent mental damage. Unfortunately, she was a little too naive...

Her mother died when she was young and her lady-in-waiting Impa was vague about the specifics. Nabooru is astonished by Zelda's naivety at her age.

Tony's dad tries to give him a talk in Then Again, Maybe I Won't by Judy Blume, saying he doesn't really know how to go about it, as he never brought the matter up with his two older son. Tony assures him that he's learned all about it from school and friends, but his dad gives him a book later, just in case.

Twisted: The Untold Story of a Royal Vizier has a hysterical scene where Ja'far gives the Princess a variant of this. It's not the "where babies come from" talk (being sixteen, she knows that already), but the possibly more excruciating "men are after one thing and will try and take advantage of naive young girls like you, so be careful" talk. Ja'far warns her that men will act all sweet, get girls to trust them, get them alone... and then whip it out. Their songs, that is.

In Mortified, Taylor spends an entire episode fleeing from her parents who she thinks are trying to give her The Talk. Finally cornered, she discovers that they actually want to talk to her about doing her share of the household chores now that she is older. Relieved, she immediately agrees and starts doing the dishes with her mother. However, her mother then takes advantage of having a captive audience to actually give her The Talk.

On Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in the episode "Hysteria", Elliot tries to give daughter Kathleen The Talk by speaking entirely in soccer metaphors, after which Kathleen reassures her father she's a virgin.
This comes up in a heartbreaking way in the episode "Competence", involving a young pregnant woman with Down Syndrome. The girl's mother had never given her The Talk or allowed her to take sex-ed classes at her day center, believing she wasn't mature enough for that information, and the girl's lack of knowledge hampers detectives' efforts to determine who fathered the baby (and thus determine if it was consensual sex or if she was raped). When another character finally explains to her how babies are made, she replies "That's not sex — that's exercise!" It turned out that the girl's boss at her part-time job had been raping mentally disabled girls for years and calling it exercise, counting on them being too sheltered to know otherwise.

In the last book of The Collegium Chronicles. Herald Jakyr asks Mags about his relationship with Amily and is prepared to give him some form of The Talk. Mags explains that he knows the basics, but has no clue about how to make it pleasurable for Amily. Herald Jakyr, realizing that his planned speech is useless, then proceeds to explain to Mags (who is horribly embarrassed by this) how to go about doing exactly that.

Aki-chan's Life: When Misato is revealed to be pregnant, the heated argument that breaks out is interrupted when the titular Aki arrives at the table wanting to know what everyone's talking about. Asuka uses the opportunity to drag Misato to another room for some "Girl talk", leaving Shinji the job of explaining to a 4-year old about the birds and the bees. Turns out to be a bad idea since Shinji, being Shinji, botches it and Aki runs into the room a few minutes later asking if Misato ate a baby. Asuka decides to take over after that.

RainbowDoubleDash's Lunaverse: An early story has Cheerilee misinterpreting a remark BonBon makes about Trixie, and combined with catching her and Raindrops in an embarrassing conversation, assumes Trixie knows nothing about It, and proceeds to give her the Talk (combined with a few anecdotes of her own exploits). At the end of it, Trixie - who grew up with several cousins in Neigh Orleans - yells that she knows about sex already. She's just massively grossed out by it. What Cheerilee walked in on was them talking about a memory spell Trixie had been using.

The Simpsons:
Occurs for full comedic effect between Bart and Homer in the Season 16 episode "All's Fair in Oven War". Homer gives Bart The Talk after finding out Bart is using his Playdude magazines (that had all of the nude photographs cut out by Marge) to give advice to his friends, to the chagrin of their parents. The Talk ends with Bart running around the neighborhood screaming and going door-to-door to pass the knowledge onto his peers, all of which are equally freaked out. At that point and taking certain of his past comments and actions, one would think Bart was already well aware. Recent episodes illustrate that he somehow doesn't know what it is again... then other times he does.
It's not like Bart didn't know already however. Although he possibly doesn't remember due to his age at the time.
Bart, along with all of Mrs. Krabappel's class, watched a 1970s film about puberty and sex, titled Fuzzy Bunny's Guide to You-Know-What, all the way back in the Season 3 episode "Bart's Friend Falls in Love".

Arcadia opens with the question " Septimus, what is carnal embrace?" Septimus, being unwilling to answer this truthfully, replies that "Carnal embrace is the practice of throwing one's arms around a side of beef." Of course, this comes back to his great discomfort later, when Thomasina informs her parents that "Septimus taught me all there is to know about Carnal Embrace."

This happens between Kamina and Simon in the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann fanfic The Talk. Somewhat unique in that Kamina, the parental figure, completely lacks embarrassment while discussing this topic and doesn't actually know anything about pregnancy.

One Day at a Time (2017): One episode revolves around Penelope deciding she needs to have the Talk with her son Alex, who's about twelve, because she found a (very graphic) porno on his laptop. She's especially not looking forward to it because she and her ex-husband agreed that she'd give the Talk to their daughter Elena, and he'd give it to Alex, but because he's absent, Penelope has wound up stuck with both of them. When Penelope tries to have the discussion, Alex is absolutely mortified and hides under a blanket, asking why Penelope is doing this to him... and then it turns out that Elena is the one who downloaded the movie, meaning Penelope is talking to the wrong kid anyway. (Elena, being fifteen, already knows the facts of life, but the movie is apparently extreme enough that Penelope is worried that a teen watching it might get the wrong idea about sex.) When Elena gets home, Alex hands her the blanket, cryptically warning her, "You'll need this..."

It goes both ways in Fullmetal Alchemist story Supplemental Rules and Regulations. At the end of chapter fourteen, Roy is enlisted to give the Elrics The Talk. Loud, outgoing Ed blushes and sputters. Sweet, innocent Al on the other hand asks, "What do you want to know?" Made even more hilarious by the bit in chapter sixteen where we find out that Roy was unanimously elected by his subordinates and best friend to do it, without giving him any say in the matter.

It leads to a very, very amusing conversation, and gets even more awkward for the wizards when the normally straitlaced housekeeper, Mrs. Whitlow, volunteers to explain "the facts of life" to the God (and prompts the wizards to wonder, out of morbid curiouity, what Mr. Whitlow's life was like).

On Rocko's Modern Life, Heffer was (quite literally) Raised by Wolves. As such, a Rite of Passage he is expected to go through is to bring home an elk for dinner, even though he's not a wolf. When his father attempts to explain this, Heffer attempts to cut him off, explaining that he already knows about "the birds and the bees." Annoyed, George asks his wife Virginia to step in and explain. (It probably didn't help that George opened up the conversation about this Rite of Passage in the same way one would open up a conversation about puberty.)

King of the Hill:
Bobby's biology class was going to do a sex-ed unit, which Hank and Peggy opposed. Hank said that if their son needed to know anything about sex he would learn it at home. Of course, it turned out that they were both intensely uncomfortable with the idea of talking about sex with their son, so they caved and signed the permission slip. Then Peggy, a substitute teacher, was asked to sub for the biology class, so she had to work to overcome her aversion to The Talk. (The fact that her own mother's version of The Talk amounted to giving her a book filled with pictures of flowers didn't help.) But then it turns out that none of the other childrens' parents signed the permission slip, so they all leave the classroom and go to the library when it's time to start the lesson. By that time, the only two in the room are Peggy and Bobby.
While Hank and Peggy failing to talk to Bobby about sex was initially funny, Peggy slowly working to overcome her aversion also showed the Double Standard over it being seen as okay for boys to have sex but not girls, and also demonstrated how grossly repressed Hank and Peggy's adult friends were. One of Peggy's friends mentioned that after her mother had shown her the same book Peggy had read, whenever she has sex with her husband she just "lays back and thinks about those pretty flowers" while he does whatever he wants. Peggy is very disturbed by that.

Whenever the subject comes up, Tiffany Aching comments that she knows about this already because of her numerous older sisters.

The Oh Yeah! Cartoons short "Ask Edward: All About Babies" had Edward and his little brother Emo both believing that babies come from eggs delivered by the Delivery Stork after being sent a request form from the parents on Christmas, Easter, or whenever one of the children they already have has lost a tooth for the Tooth Fairy to get. The boys eventually find an egg that they think to be their new brother, but are horrified when their mother cooks the egg in front of them and tries to get Edward to eat it. After realizing what the fuss is about, their mother then tries to set them straight by having their father explain the facts of life, but that only leads to Edward and Emo thinking that eggs will only contain babies if they have been pollinated by bees.

There's a Star Trek XI fic here, written for that fandom's Kink Meme where for family reasons Chekov had never been given the Talk, and the bridge team decides to rectify this.

Deconstructed in The Middle's fourth-season episode "The Hose." Brick tries to opt out of sex-ed class at school because it makes him uncomfortable, making Mike and Frankie realize they've never had "the talk" with him. Before they can, however, he asks his older brother, who gives it all to him in a two-hour session. Brick repeats it when he does finally have sex ed, which results in a parent meeting and ultimately Mike and Frankie talking to Axl.

In the Undertale fanfic Wherein Alphys Teaches Mettaton about Sex, Alphys upgrades Mettaton to be, ahem, "fully functional", since it doesn't seem fair to leave him without the option just because she's too embarrassed. She then has to explain exactly what these new parts are supposed to do. She winds up showing him Transformers porn.

In Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu, Kaname gives a sort of similar talk to Sōsuke (though it was more explaining what "flirting" and "picking up women" is). No dialogue is heard, and his reaction is to turn deathly pale and break out into cold sweat, stammering that he "can't do that." Lord knows what his reaction would be should anyone ever give him The Talk about explicit sex. "Listen up! Flirting is... (fast forward mode) When a guy talks to a girl he doesn't know in the city or a store to invite them to hang around with them. The trick is to smile often, and show that you are a cheerful guy. If the girl agrees to come along, you can take her to a cafe or anywhere else you want. Entertain her plenty, smile constantly, and bring up conversations that modern girls would enjoy talking about. And be sure to include some moderate amount of compliments in between. And you have to pay the bill. In short, just act like Kurz-kun." At which point Sōsuke realizes he's in waaay over his head... (The dialogue has been Transcribed by intensive use of freeze-frame on a subtitled version of that episode.)

American Dad! The episode "A Smith in the Hand" had Stan try to give it to Steve (who doesn't know as much as he pretends to). Stan, being an ultra-conservative, and this being the first season before he's lightened up, doesn't give good advice (he says if you have sex before you're married angels will kill you, then shows Steve a 1950s short film about the evils of masturbation). At the end of the episode, he finally decides to play it straight and apparently gets quite explicit... but forgets to turn the camera off while on a children's television show (a Show Within a Show).

In Dragon Age: Origins, Wynne playfully delivers The Talk to Alistair in a bit of party dialogue if the female Player Character begins a romance with him. Alistair is not amused. Zevran does it too, although his is about technique. Alistair is even less amused. If Zevran is being romanced, Shale tries to give him the talk.

In the anime Azumanga Daioh, Tomo asks a drunken Kurosawa-sensei to explain it, which she does. We don't hear any dialogue, but are treated to the girls' reactions as their faces steadily become redder (with the exception of little Chiyo, who is clueless) and some odd arm movements. What makes it hilarious is the Relax-o-Vision (and music) accompanying the scene, and then, when Nyamo is sober again the next morning, Chiyo asks some questions.

In Finding A Loud, Rita Loud has given her daughters the talk so regularly shes actually gotten bored of it, and condensed the whole affair down to ten minutes. Luan even noted she's started to get confused about which girl she's giving it to. It's part of the reason she badly wants a son, just so she can have new challenges rather than the same ones over and over again.

Early on in A Brother's Price we are told that not only have Jerin's father and grandfather given him The Talk, they put much emphasis on teaching him how to keep his future multiple wives happy. His father told him to keep a schedule of one night per wife, eldest to youngest, repeat, and never let his wives know who his favourite is if he has one. What his grandfather taught him is only hinted at. Where babies come from seems to be common knowledge in the setting, as men are extremely rare and Jerin's former teacher freely tells him that she looks forward to getting married; not so much because of the husband but because of the pregnancy. On the other hand, it is considered improper to talk about miscarriage and stillbirth in front of young menfolk like Jerin.

They spend the entire episode fumbling every attempt until Mr. Brown steps in and asks Joaquin point-blank if he knows where babies come from and if he wants to know. Upon receiving a "no" on both questions, Mr Brown sends him off to play and tells the stunned couple to wait until he's older before trying it again.

The Venture Bros.: Dr. Venture decides to give Dean "the talk" since he has a girlfriend (kinda). All we get is a muted montage section with some interesting gestures, a GI Joe humping a lamp, and various other things. Next thing we know the topic has somehow moved to the breakup of Whitesnake. Dean ends up staging a small version of Lady Windermere's Fan for Triana (his female friend).
In "Victor. Echo. Novemeber.", Triana gets her own Talk from her father before she leaves for a double date. She heads off his Mills and Boon Prose as unnecessary, not because she already knows everything, but because the date is with the Venture brothers.

Harry Potter fan works:
An old Harry Potter Fan Fiction entitled Plugs and Outlets featured Arthur Weasley explaining the facts of life to Ron in terms of the titular Muggle technology. The mostly hilarious sequel Quills and Ink Bottles is the same principle applied to Molly Weasley telling Ginny about the facts of life, and the trilogy is completed with Quidditch Anyone? in which Sirius Black tells Harry that there are several kinds of girls—represented by the different Quidditch balls.
There is a Harry Potter fan fiction in which Ginny, caught by her parents in a somewhat suggestive position, is then given The Talk by Arthur, using the metaphor of Plugs and Sockets, while short circuits represent pregnancy and childbirth.
There are several good HP ones of Snape having to teach Sex Ed to Hogwarts students. Example.
A variation of the above occurs in The Boy Who Died A Lot where Snape finds it prudent to have a little talk with his Slytherin students. The emphasis of the speech is less on sex itself than the importance of consent, and the moral unacceptability of using coercive spells or love potions to force the act on the unwilling; according to Snape, such behaviour should be considered beneath them, and is grounds for expulsion. (The mood of the scene is lightened somewhat when Snape realises McGonagall has been standing at the door for the latter part of his speech.)
There's one where Ron and Hermione are caught snogging by Ron's entire family, and all of the older Weasley men attempt to have The Talk with Ron, most hilariously the twins, who are armed with Muggle porn.
Quite possibly the best Harry Potter Talk is from The Bonds of Blood.
There is a hilarious Harry Potter fanfic in which Sirius was asked to give Harry a talk (about a certain Quidditch stunt, but he thought was THE talk), and the Twins - sensing how nervous Sirius was - started off with a crack about "When a Man Loves a Chipmunk", the whole thing went down hill fast, and Harry is Traumatized.
The Harry Potter fanfic The Shoebox Project had a chapter that touched on this in which each of the Marauders is given The Talk by each of their parents and, in Sirius' case, James' parents. While James' dad hems and haws his way through it all, James' mother plays it painfully straight:
There's Harry Potter and the Cracked Reservoir where each Weasley brother plays a prank on Harry as initiation into the family (he started dating Ginny). One of the pranks is convincing McGonagall to give Harry The Talk — with animated diagrams. Afterwards, Harry is coming to his dorms... and meets Ginny who has the same look he does — her mother talked to her, too.
There's a Harry×Luna fanfic, Harry Potter and the Awkward Date, where as soon as everyone hears that Harry asked Luna to go see a movie, they each try to give Harry what he calls "The Lecture". Almost none of them help.
There's a hilarious one quite simply called The Talk where because of his orphan status, various parental figures in Harry's life decide to give him The Talk. Independently. He ends up going through it six times.
In Elsewhere, but not Elsewhen, The Talk goes Up to Eleven and Crosses the Line Twice or more as it is Lord Voldemort who gives Harry the talk.
In Society of the Vesta Accolates Draco Malfoy is so horrified by receiving The Talk from his father and then accidentally glimpsing his parents having sex that he and Harry drain an entire bottle of firewhiskey. In the following chapter Remus forbids Sirius from ever giving The Talk to Harry because when he tried it with Neville's father, he decided that bananas and a blow-up doll were needed as visual aids.
In Little Dragon Molly and Arthur Weasley give Harry and Ron a hilariously muddled version of The Talk (complicated by the fact that some wizards can become pregnant) where Arthur tries to explain it in terms of plugs and outlets and Molly, well...
In By Right of Conquest Andromeda gives it to Harry using male and female cloth dolls for demonstration purposes.
In Physical Education (a two-shot in which Deadpool becomes the new Phys Ed teacher at Hogwarts), Harry's class ends up having to take Sex Ed with him as well. He tries to give them the regular "when a man and a woman love each other very much" speech, but keeps derailing it until he just gives up and shows them one of his sex tapes, which involves Hermione's aunt (much to her mortification) and a banana. Draco also gets to watch a "special" one; we don't know the details, but it's titled "Fat, Fifty, and Frisky".

Early in Kaguya-sama: Love Is War, Kaguya, Kurogane, and Fujiwara come across a magazine article that says just over a third of people their age have had their "first time" by then. Kurogane and Fujiwara are surprised it's so high, but Kaguya thinks it's about right, if not low. However, she then goes on to say it's very common to the point she did it with her newborn nephew and expects Fujiwara did it with her dog. This results in the obvious question of what Kaguya thinks "first time" means, and Kaguya reveals she's talking about kissing, as that's the extent of her sexual education. Fujiwara steps up to the plate and, sixteen minutes later, Kaguya is both educated and flustered beyond belief.

Most Avatar fics on this subject have Sokka (or another older character) giving Kid Hero Aang the talk. But The Innocence of Youth has an interesting twist on this: it has the teenaged monks of the Air Temple eager to tell an apparently innocent Aang everything they know, only to find that Aang is already pretty knowledgeable on the subject. Hilariously, when Sokka (a century later) decides to give Aang "the most enlightening conversation [[he'll]] ever have," it turns out that he actually knows less about sex than the younger kid.

Divorced: After 7-year old Mina walks in on her parents naked in bed, she asks them why they're naked. Much to Zelda's embarrassment, Ganondorf explains to her about sex. Gerudos and Hylians have different standards on when it's appropriate for kids to learn about reproduction.

Spring Awakening opens with Wendla's mother trying to give her the talk, but as a prudish 19th century woman she can't quite bring herself to fully explain it. The effects of this later in the play are quite bad indeed.

In Let The World Smile, sixteen year old Princess Zelda is married off to Ganondorf as an act of Altar Diplomacy, but she doesn't know much about sex yet. Her mother died when she was young and her lady-in-waiting Impa was vague about the specifics. Nabooru is astonished by Zelda's naivety at her age.
In Clueless, Malon finds out that Link has no idea where babies came from after catching him staring in confusion at a pregnant woman in the Castle Town market. After she gets her laughter under control, she takes him home and forces Talon to help her give him the talk, which the narration describes as "shamelessly thorough." Keep in mind this version of Link was raised by a tree.

In Mass Effect 2, Mordin gives Shepard a talk, which varies depending on who he/she is romancing. They're all mostly about how to do it safely with biotics or other species, which mixed with Mordin's Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness and Motor Mouth tendencies are all pretty funny to listen to. If you're romancing a biotic he'll give you a book detailing "create use of mass effect fields" (if you're biotic this is even funnier). He actually gives useful info as well, not just comic relief. For example, romancing Garrus causes a warning that ingesting turian... fluids... will probably result in a possibly fatal allergic reaction due to it being made of dextro-amino acids, while romancing Tali has a warning about being careful because, coupled with incompatible amino acids, along with the Ill Girl that defines all quarians, having a passionate night could potentially kill her. If you're romancing Thane, he'll warn you that oral contact with his skin can cause hallucinations.

Steven Universe:
Parodied in a short aptly titled "How Are Gems Made?". Amethyst starts off acting like it'll be this trope, but quickly drops the façade, since Gems are Humanoid Aliens who don't reproduce sexually.
In "Log Date 7 15 2", Peridot asks Steven about the two characters making out in the video they are watching (Peridot thought they were trying to fuse together--literally). Steven awkwardly tries to pass on what his dad told him, but Peridot had already lost interest.

On One Life to Live, after a young man is wrongly arrested for rape, his little sister comes to their mother and asks what rape means. As it turns out, the girl has already had the "where babies come from/what sex is/inappropriate touching" talks, but her mother now needs to combine all three to find a way to explain rape to a 10 year old.

A fanfic for Tales of Symphonia where the group is in Tethe'alla. Colette asks the OC about something that Zelos did that involved a girl. Said OC completely freaks out and tells Colette to ask Regal, who in turn gets flustered and doesn't say anything. The next day Colette says that she found the Wonder Chef, who, when asked about sex, proceeded to tell it all to Colette. In detail. Including information about fetishes and erectile dysfunction. She blushes in the presence of Zelos and can't even hear the word 'wood' without freaking out.

In The Sims 4, parents can talk to their teenage kids about woohoo. It leads to both sides feeling embarrassed. In fact, that seems to be the only point of the interaction, as it serves no practical purpose in game. Occasionally, however, the interaction might not result in embarrassment and one or both might get a possible moodlet.

Star Trek fan works:
There's a Star Trek XI fic here, written for that fandom's Kink Meme where for family reasons Chekov had never been given the Talk, and the bridge team decides to rectify this. Unfortunately, rather than selecting one person to do this, almost all of them decide to chime in on it independently. Spock uses diagrams. Bones uses the Scare 'Em Straight method.
There was a hilarious one in which Spock is mailed a pamphlet called "Pon Farr and you."

In the Sorrowful and Immaculate Hearts story "Christmas in Kansas", Clark Kent recalls the Talk his mother gave him when he was a teen. It was apparently horrifyingly thorough, both because Martha had personal reasons for wanting to cover the full range on human possibilities, and because she felt obliged in Clark's case to cover the inhuman possibilities as well. "All I know's the birds and the bees, for all I knew you were an iguana."

A Bit of Fry and Laurie:
Subverted by a sketch in which Fry asks Laurie (playing his son) if he knows where babies come from. Laurie replies "I always sort of assumed that you put your penis into mummy's vagina and then intercourse occured". Fry responds that this is indeed what they told him but that it is a bit more complicated than that, going on to say that somehow carpets are involved in the process. (The whole sketch turns into a spoof plug for the show's supposed sponsor's "Tideyman's Carpets').
Even better in another Fry and Laurie sketch when a father (Laurie) brings his son to the headmaster (Fry) complaining about the "vulgar lies" his son had been taught in his biology class. "Sexual intercourse sometimes leads to pregnancy in the adult female." Apparently the man believed that children came out of nowhere after a man and woman had gotten married and bought a house.

Martin smiles and relaxes, calmly asking if Jeremy has any questions. "Yeah, what's cunnilingus?" Cut to man falling from a building with a horrified scream. Followed immediately by a series of equally direct questions, with similar clips as "responses".
Played straight(er) later by Martin talking to Jeremy about a completely different matter and wrapping up by saying it was "as awkward as bad sex".

Glee manages a surprisingly touching and noteworthy scene between a father, Burt, and his gay son, Kurt. It is awkward, but not as much as it could have been — rather than getting into the mechanics of it, Burt (who's pretty clueless about gay sex anyway) gives Kurt pamphlets to read, and proceeds to talk to him about the emotional impact that sex can have on a man.
Made even better by the fact that Kurt's first reaction is to stick his fingers in his ears and start singing. Made even worse by the fact that Kurt had actually asked his dad to do some research so that they could have this kind of talk. In the episode right before this. Continuity? What continuity?

A sketch from Peter Cook and Dudley Moore's show Not Only... But Also has an upper-class British gent trying to explain the facts of life with his naive 18 year old son, who doesn't want to believe the "filthy things they say at school". After much stalling ("In order for you to be brought about... it was necessary for your mother and I... to do something.") he makes wild claims that his son's conception was through his mother sitting in the same chair that he had been in and "was still warm... from my body". The conversation eventually escalates into them discussing Uncle Bertie ("Dirty Uncle Bertie they call him at school." "And they're right, Roger! Uncle Bertie is a dirty, dirty man"). The sketch can be viewed here.

On Orange Is the New Black, Pennsatucky thinks back to when she got her first period at age 10. Since her mother had not told her anything (not believing that a girl that young could begin to menstruate), she thought she was dying. After getting over her initial shock, her mother tells her over Mountain Dew and ice cream that she isn't dying, that this is normal...and also, that boys and men are going to start looking at her differently and might (whether she likes it or not) use her for sex (because they "only want one thing"), that she just has to take and hope it goes quick, because that's normal too. Pennsatucky is raped at least twice in her life: once at a party, and once while in prison by one of the guards.

Occurs in Recess. Miss Grotke gives everyone the talk after Gordy (one of the minor characters) asks her about it. Due to the show's TV-G rating, we only see the discussion ending.

The Monk: Strangely enough for an 18th-century novel, and for a church scene, Antonia almost gets one of these in the first chapter from her busybody Maiden Aunt. Luckily for the reader and for Antonia, Ambrosio's entrance interrupts.

Storks: Despite being set in a universe where Delivery Storks exist, it's still an awkward question when Nate asks his parents where they got him. This is because the storks stopped delivering babies 18 years ago so he was made the old-fashioned way, which makes his parents dance around the question.

In Mystery Science Theater 3000, sometimes the 'bots ask Joel what the characters in a romantic scene are doing, to his usual reply of "They're sharing secrets." Given Crow and Servo's Ping-Pong Naïveté on the topic, they're probably just making Joel feel awkward for the fun of it.
One episode ends with Pearl starting to explain things to Bobo after he finds some interesting "balloons" in a men's room vending machine.
A host segment during the episode covering Parts: The Clonus Horror had the Mads giving "the talk" to a trio of superpowered Space Children. Pearl rambles on and bitterly about her own failed relationships, Brain Guy gives a surprisingly poetic description of love before denouncing the emotion as unnecessary, and Professor Bobo's advice is... questionable, since it's geared towards Ape Man mating rituals.

The Cow and Chicken episode "The Day I Was Born" had Cow ask her brother Chicken, her parents, her teacher, and the Red Guy how she was born and receiving different answers. Chicken claims that Cow is adopted, which only confuses her because she doesn't know what adopted means, while Mom claims the stork brought her, Dad gives the story that Cow was found in a cabbage, the Teacher tells Cow that she hatched from an egg, and the Red Guy gives the truth of how he delivered her the day she was born.

"The Apple" shows that Spock still doesn't like talking about such things.
There's also "Charlie X", in which Kirk and McCoy debate hotly who has to give the titular Charlie "The Talk". Turns out Kirk's absolute rubbish at it. Trips over himself the whole way and ends up telling Charlie almost nothing.

Malcolm in the Middle:
Subverted in "Cheerleader". Hal sits Reese, Malcolm, and Dewey down for "the talk" (because he doesn't want to have to have a separate talk for each one), complete with an action figure and something that resembles a Barbie. Beginning with "I wanna tell you about what happens when a boy really likes a girl," shortly into the talk he follows with "...and if they love each other, and take the proper precautions, they have sex. But I've told you about that already." This talk turns out to be about how the men in the family do everything possible to screw up relationships.
Double-subverted in a later episode. Lois finds out that Malcolm and his girlfriend are getting serious and, since she's leaving soon and won't have time to give him all the lessons he needs, drags poor Malcolm around in an endless car-trip where she tells him in graphic detail everything she thinks he'll ever need to know about sex. Subverted in that Malcolm already knows all of this and doesn't want to hear it from his mom... and then double-subverted when he actually learns an extremely important lesson from her towards the end. After all, doesn't every teenager think they know it all?

In the episode Mighty Mom & Dyno Dad, after using their new superpowers to get their jobs done super quick Timmy's parents are left with just enough time to spend with Timmy before he catches the school bus. As Timmy leaves, it's implied they had The Talk.
In the movie Channel Chasers, Wanda is trying to explain what happens when kids grow up and their fairies leave, but Cosmo (who’s in a toilet after a very hot shower) misunderstands.
After Poof is conceived and Timmy is confused why it’s Cosmo who’s pregnant, Cosmo decides to tell him about the "birds and the Bee Gees," which winds up just being a speech about the Bee Gees getting overplayed to the point of annoyance.

Bicentennial Man:
The first time characters talk about sex, Sir is explaining about it to Andrew, who finds the idea messy and concerning, much like a child. Oddly, Andrew gets stuck on the idea that because only one sperm is able to fertilize the egg, the rest all die.
The second time characters discuss sex, Rupert is telling Andrew that it would be possible to imitate the activity with some of the new upgrades he's designed. Andrew tells Rupert about what "they" say sex is like, as if Rupert hadn't ever heard it from his own father.

Zits Being that the strip is about teenage life, it has this topic come up occasionally. In one story arc, Walt takes Jeremy fishing, and decides to have the talk with him while waiting for a catch. After some initial resistance, Jeremy replies, "Fine. What do you want to know?"

Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman: Multiple:
In one early episode, Mrs. Quinn (Dr. Quinn's visiting mother) explains how things work to Colleen. Poor girl just got her first period and thought the bleeding means she's gonna die.
Dr. Quinn asks Sully to give the talk to her adopted son Matthew when he begins courting immigrant girl Ingrid.
She ends up needing a version of The Talk herself, with her only knowledge of sex coming from her medical books. Despite being a 30-something woman, she's still a virgin and nervous about her impending wedding night. Luckily, her friend Dorothy is there to offer her advice.
An episode plays the trope for a different kind of comedy. After her son was spotted when he tried to spy on some skinny-dipping girls, his mother decides he's old enough for The Talk... and, being a medical doctor, proceeds to read from a textbook on the subject. For hours, apparently. He's bored stiff (NOT THAT WAY) and more confused than ever by the end.

In one spoilerific Digital Devil Saga fanfiction found here, a very embarrassed Roland is forced to explain sex to the Embryon, because they're all sentient AI s and are missing some very basic information... including the fact that sex results in babies. Roland gives the bluntest explanation he can about sex itself, and his primary concern is that they might get themselves or someone else pregnant or sick without knowing otherwise. Gale keeps on pressing him for more information, and it's implied that he knew everything all along and was just messing with Roland.

The kinkier side of Pokémon fandom has a lot of fun speculating about whether feral child N has learned the facts of life, and from whom. The guesses (and resulting fics) range from "clueless virgin" to "self-taught" to "well-versed in the ways of Skitty and Wailord".

A variation of the above occurs in The Boy Who Died A Lot where Snape finds it prudent to have a little talk with his Slytherin students. The emphasis of the speech is less on sex itself than the importance of consent, and the moral unacceptability of using coercive spells or love potions to force the act on the unwilling; according to Snape, such behaviour should be considered beneath them, and is grounds for expulsion. (The mood of the scene is lightened somewhat when Snape realises McGonagall has been standing at the door for the latter part of his speech.)

The Doctor Who episode "A Good Man Goes to War" has one given to, of all people, the Doctor — and not about his own sexual exploits, but those of Rory and Amy. You'd think after nine-hundred-odd years he'd know about it, and he certainly seems to understand the general idea, but it sure takes him a long time to realise what Madame Vastra is talking about.

Cerise has to give her same-aged friend Apple the Talk in The True Love Loophole after Apple finds Kitty and Maddie in a compromising position. As it turns out, Apple's nanny only gave her a bare minimal talk that came down to "Sex is for procreation and people only do it after you're married". Apple didn't even realize that women could be in relationships (which is one of the reasons she's so oblivious to her own feelings towards Raven).

In the webcomic Nip and Tuck, Nip at the very least had a pretty clear idea of what sex was for from an extremely young age-after Tuck and Thelma walk in on Nip & Tuck's parents getting over "Empty Nest Syndrome", the parents reminisce about when the boys were five - cut to five-year-old Nip in a onesie, asking, "Are Tuck and me gonna have a widdle bwuvver?" "No, sweetie..." "Then what was all that for?!" His knowledge is possibly justified given that he's a farm kid and has probably seen the equivalent behaviour in the non-anthro animals.

South Park:
In "Cartman's Mom is a Dirty Slut", Cartman asks his mom during dinner if he actually has a dad, considering he never knew who he was. Cartman's mom goes on to give the talk, only for Cartman to ask her "who put his who-who-dilly in her cha-cha." And after that, Cartman's search for his dad begins.
In the episode "Proper Condom Use", the parents in town vote to include Sex Ed in the school curriculum because they are too uncomfortable giving The Talk to their kids. It turned into a disaster because Mr. Mackey knew next to nothing about sex, having forgotten most of his single sexual experience in college and never having learned anything else about it, Mrs. Choksondik opted for Scare 'Em Straight without actually explaining what sex is, and Mr. Garrison is a total pervert who tried to teach a class of kindergartners about exotic sex positions and how to put a condom on with your mouth.
Subverted in "The Return of the Fellowship of the Rings to the Two Towers", in which the town's parents are afraid their children have seen a wild porn film. When they learn Token saw the tape, they try a traditional "when a man and a woman love each other" sort of talk, only for him to snap out of his Heroic BSoD to ask "And when the woman has four penises in her at once, then stands up and pees all over the men... is that love? Five midgets, spanking a man covered in Thousand Island dressing... is that love?" So at the end of the episode when they catch up to the rest of the kids, who did not see the film, the parents out of the blue start trying to explain group sex, urine fetishism, etc. to the children's' shock and horror.

Walkyverse:
The webcomic It's Walky! plays this straught with the series of strips starting here. The storyline is even called "The Talk", and has Sal and Jason (the figurative "parents") reluctant and Joyce disgusted. On the other hand, this is probably the first time "The Talk" has been given to a mind-wipe victim with a repression complex who was about the same age as said figurative parents. This is one is sort of hard to categorise.
From the same 'Verse, the Shortpacked! storyline "Daddy Issues" has Ethan and Leslie trying to give The Talk to their boss, who doesn't even recognise genders. (Yes, he has a daughter. Presumably, that will be explained in due course.)

In The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, Jimmy is having trouble with a bully, but his parents think he's talking about a girl, so mom Judy tries to get Hugh to give Jimmy the talk. Hugh struggles with the words, but by the time he gets the nerve to do it the conflict is resolved and Hugh ends up giving the talk to Jimmy's robot dog Goddard.

Lampshaded in Lois & Clark, where Superman comes to a scientist after he married Lois and stated that he needs to talk since he has a girl now. The scientist thinks at first Superman needs The Talk, but turns out it was about genetic compatibility.

Good Times' Willona stubbornly and stupidly refuses to give this to daughter Penny, insisting that she will decide when Penny is ready for it, even though she clearly is—pubertal development has started, a classmate of hers is pregnant, and she's beginning to ask questions.

Subverted (like you'd expect any different) in The Addams Family Values. Morticia is having a baby, so Wednesday and Pugsley are in the waiting room. As a young girl tells the story about a wish turning into a diamond that grows in the cabbage patch and turns into a baby as it's delivered by the stork, Wednesday, in one of Christina Ricci's best deliveries ever, baldly states "My parents are having a baby. They had sex."

UQ Holder!: During a rather blatant attempt by Kirie to get Touta to sleep with her, it's finally revealed that Touta has no idea what sex is, nor where babies come from. Justified in that, despite having a 14 year old body, he's actually only 3 or 4 years old in reality. Kirie, frustrated, spends the rest of the night educating Touta on the subject (not a euphemism, she gets out a blackboard and starts teaching him as though in a classroom). And when that fails to work, she just pulls up some porn on pay-per-view to show him.

Sticky Dilly Buns has a weird sort-of-variant Talk scene. Ruby is a sensible young woman who knows perfectly well where babies come from, but she’s also a nervous virgin who gets frantically tense when she thinks that her boyfriend is suggesting sex. She ends up getting a lot of reassuring explanations from her friends at a yaoi fan club meeting, including a detailed demonstration of oral sex techniques from Camp Gay Dillon — on a popsicle, one hastens to add.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
Buffy and her mom have a different kind of talk after Angelus tells Joyce that he and Buffy had sex. It is played not for laughs, but for angst, as it brings up the emotional agony Buffy is suffering as a result of Angel losing his soul.
In another episode it is played for laughs, as Buffy and Xander offer unsolicited advice to Giles who is struggling over asking Ms. Calendar on a date — Xander asks if they should discuss the facts of life, pointing out that the stork is "a smokescreen".

Of The River And The Sea has a very flustered seven-year-old Ryuishi being forced to explain the "swords and sheathes" to a nine-year-old Zabuza after his shisou utterly botched his attempt, leading the kid to believe he impregnated Ryuishi by stabbing her with his training sword. Kisame laughs his ass off while listening - because if you're not in the Seduction Corps, Kiri will not give you any explanation.

Forest Hill has a variation. After Hunter gets molested at school, single father Colin has to explain to his daughter Tanya what rape is. He has difficulty explaining what sex is to her, but luckily for him she already knows what sex is from her aunt giving her the talk. Colin also isn't able to give an answer when she ask how it is even possible for a penis to enter a vagina because it hurts when she tries to finger herself.

Doug: In the Christmas episode of the Disney series, Doug's father Phil, after spending the entire season trying to give Doug The Talk (probably because of his wife being pregnant; the baby is born in the same episode), finally works up the courage to tell him, only for Doug to cut him off and say he already knows about sex and proceeds to explain it to his dad. It cuts immediately to after the conversation with his dad walking away saying "Thanks son, that was really informative, I guess they left out a few things when I was kid," in a completely dazed voice. Either his dad did not understand something (despite having three kids), or Doug is into some creepy stuff. Even after Doug was given The Talk, his parents are completely clueless about Doug's crush on Patti, referring to her as a friend — even inviting her for a sleepover.

In an episode of Charmed a spell causes sisters to mentally revert to little children. Penny tries to sit Piper down for a talk. Piper thinks it's this talk but Penny is really just trying to tell her she's a witch.
In an earlier episode, neighbor Dan asked Piper to help his teenage niece Jenny with a school assignment about the reproductive system, feeling she might be more comfortable discussing it with a woman. When Piper's unavailable, Phoebe has to step in. She's under a time crunch and under a spell that makes her super-intelligent, so she jumps right in with a technical explanation about the egg and sperm. When she sees it's going over Jenny's head, she decides to simplify matters, scribbles something on Jenny's paper, and shoves her out the door. When Jenny looks at her paper, she sees a drawing of an ovum (labeled "US") surrounded by approaching sperm cells (labeled "THEM").

Gravity Falls: In the episode "Carpet Diem", Stan ends up giving one of these to Mabel trapped in Dipper's body, thinking it is actually Dipper. It skips over most of it, with the implication that it was extremely explicit: Stan gets out a book titled Why Am I Sweaty?: Your Body Explained in Horrifyingly Uncomfortable Detailnote  which seems to be a parody of the real life books Where Did I Come From? and What's Happening to Me?, even using the exact same typeface in the cover, opens to a page explaining how the pituitary gland has "big plans", then the show switches over to a scene from the B-plot (Soos trapped in Waddles' body running around the town), and then it cuts back to Stan closing the book and saying "... and now you know where babies come from." The thoroughly traumatized expression on Mabel-Dipper's face says it all...
