Sex is a part of life. Almost every one does it, including your mom and aunt, and one day you will too. Obviously your mom and aunt are comfortable with each other to talk about stuff like this. It's natural. Get over it

Yes your response is normal for someone in your position who has never encountered this topic before at your age.

You'll get over the shock in about... from my own experience, it took about two months.

That's how long it took me to adjust to a major "Oh my gosh the world is a lot different than I had thought, and my brain needs to make a lot of adjustments to assimilate this new information."

In the mean time, if you like musical plays, I could recommend seek out a play, or the music to a play called "Spring Awakening."

There's very little sex involved. Mostly it's about what happens to young people when they aren't taught anything about sex and what happens to them. It takes place about 150 years ago, when sex wasn't talked about much anywhere (or at least where the play takes place).

I just checked YouTube.com and yes it's there. The Spring Awakening Soundtrack, and the play itself in 9 parts.

Oh, and yes I agree don't think of your parents doing it! That never ceases to be a creepy thought! I don't know why. Maybe evolution made us that way, but yea it's kind of creepy to think of my parents doing it! However, for some inexplicable reason, not so creepy to think of people my own age doing it.

(And of course I have this strong desire to do it with someone, which is probably the curse of evolution [those that did reproduced a lot], but I never get a chance to, so, I'm guessing it may not be happening as much as I think, since I think other people are doing it a lot more than me, but since I'm doing zero, other people can't be doing it less. I think either way I'm in good company. Probably a lot of people do it, and a lot of people don't do it, so either way, you're normal.)

Do they do any Mindfulness Meditation in your culture? Now would be a good time to practice that, as it can be calming, and get your mind off these things which disturb it. Just spend a minute and return your focus to the present moment, and when your mind wanders, let the thought go, and return your focus to the present moment. It's a simple yet very effective skill to learn which over time should help calm you and you'll be happier and have less brain burn out. (There are guided meditation apps you can try on your cell phone. "Headspace" is one. Check out the brief animated videos explaining the concept at the beginning of lessons 3,5,7, and 9.)

Best wishes! Try breathing slowly. Breathing is one thing we can do both consciously and unconsciously, so it's a bridge to our unconscious. If we consciously breathe slowly, it will trick our brain into thinking we're calm, and it will become calm.
