Actually, neither 42, nor 24 year-old men, or women, automatically know much about sex. We don';t handle it as simply and automatically as spring chickens do. And at 42, he'll have grown up in the era when it wasn't talked about, and there was no sex education, or porno, or even good professional sex guides, around, and where the government got jumpy about the occasional bare breast appearing in a National Geographic magazine.
And I agree with Shaun, that there's a lot a man can learn in 10 minutes. Maybe buy a few good books like Alex Comfort's The Joy of Sex, and qietly read it, and leave it lying around for him to pick up if he pleases.
Mind you, I rather like blackbird's image of the classroom, actually rather a popular fantasy, I find ! Just mind what you do with the magic marker ! And Emma's response is really excellent
