Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel attend the 2016 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Feb. 28, 2016 in Beverly Hills, Calif. 

Jessica Biel is already giving her 2-year-old son some lessons on the birds and the bees.   

The actress spoke at the 2018 MAKERS Conference in Los Angeles Tuesday (Feb. 6) and discussed her sexual education PSA video she made with Chelsea Handler. She then talked about how the topic of sex translates in her home, and how she and husband Justin Timberlake are teaching son Silas to be comfortable and understanding with his body from a young age.   

“We’re using technical terms … we shower together, and [we say], ‘This is what I’ve got. This is what you’ve got,’” she said. “We just talk about it. I know it’s really young, but I really believe that if you start this early, there’s no shame.”   

“I don’t want to tell him, ‘Keep your private parts,’ and this and that,” she continued. “It’s a beautiful thing. You have it and mine is different and it’s cool, man. We have to respect ourselves and respect each other.
