Carrie: Who told you about sex, your father?
Madonna: Who did tell me? My stepmother told me, and I remember I was horrified. I was ten and had just started my period. It was like “Okay, we better tell her.” I remember my stepmother was in the kitchen, and I was washing the dishes. Every time she said the word penis, I’d turn the water on really hard so it would drown out what she said. I thought what she was telling me was horrifying, absolutely horrifying. And I hated the word. I just hated the whole thing.
