Mothers are caring, nurturing, and always by our sides through the good and the bad, but they're human, which means they have probably told us a white lie or two. For a Mother's Day special, these kids decided to hook their moms up to lie detectors and ask all those burning questions that the matriarch of the family would typically cover up in order to maintain her pristine reputation in her child's eyes.

Sex and drugs are usual topics moms choose to lie about while encouraging their kids to stay away from drugs and not have an abundance of sexual partners. Obviously when they have mom strapped in to the lie detector, these sort of questions were bound to come up. From what drugs have they tried to whether or not they've had threesomes, the offspring did not hold back on exposing their moms' secrets.
The responses shouldn't come as a shock to these sons and daughters. A new report reveals that the parents of millennials actually had more sex than post 80s babies. If they were born in the 50s and 60s, the average number of sexual partners during their adulthood was 11, and the ones born in the 40s and 70s averaged 10. Millennials come in at the lowest, averaging 8 sexual partners during adulthood. The author of the report, Jean Twenge, says that the better knowledge of sexually transmitted diseases is probably to credit for the lower number in millennials compared to their parents.
Back to the truth-telling mommies though. Watch as these sons and daughters get to know their moms on a much deeper level.
