Straight talk


Honest conversation. Truthful answers. ‘Straight’ is used in the sense of no prevarication, no stretching the truth, but clear and unvarnished facts. (Compare to Honest Abe, Unvarnished truth or Scout’s honor.)

“Son, I need to have some straight talkĀ  with you about sex and love.”
