David Beckham won't talk about the birds and the bees

He may be one of the sexiest men on the planet, but David Beckham doesn't want to talk about it. Sex, that is.

The soccer star admits he was horrified to discuss the birds and the bees with his 11-year-old son Brooklyn, so he let wife Victoria do the honors.

"We've had the talk with Brooklyn. It was more Victoria than me," the 35-year-old father of three revealed on Ryan Seacrest's radio show yesterday. "I had to walk out of the room because Brooklyn was sort of looking at me through the corner of his eye and laughing. I was thinking, 'I need to get out of here because this is a serious talk.' I was very uncomfortable."

Beckham added that although the boy is "noticing certain attention" from girls, he will let his 36-year-old Mrs. decide when Brooklyn is old enough to date.

"He's only 11," he said. "It's a question for Victoria."

It seems the former Spice Girl calls the shots in the relationship - especially considering another interview in which Beckham told Ellen DeGeneres Victoria wasn't very tidy.

"He always says that he is tidy, but you're not actually that tidy are you David?" Victoria shot back.

"We're going to have our first argument in 11 years," he told DeGeneres. "I'm sure there are a lot of things that I do that drive her crazy."

    My dad had the talk with me when i was 11as well. It was very uncomfortable and weird because i remember him trying to explain stuff but he didn't really know how. It was mostly weird because I am female but he was trying his best, telling me all about puberty and all the good stuff. I remember he told me what he could, and also referred me to my aunt for for information because I had lost my mother to cancer when I was 3 years old and my dad never remarried. When I look back to this day I laugh.

    Beckham should have man-upped and had the talk with his son. He knew this talk was coming for 11years. Its part of a father's job. I remember when my father had the talk with me, I could see he was uncomfortable, but I also remember appreciating the effort. Regardless of who wears the pants in the relationship, Beckham should have taken control of this situation, not his wife.
