I'm trying to have such talks with my son frequently, Leonora.

One thing that puzzles me is his repeated "Why?" when I'm trying to tell him that no one should be allowed to touch his private parts.

And that's a great idea to tell him that even the doctors who might be entitled to touch his body should still explain why and ask permission first!
