Mensagem: 

Go with Johannes:   Unless I am mistaken, this way of saying 'it',  is still in vogue and will be understood by native speakers.

 

In the US this expression is common, is used, and is understood always in the context of teaching children the facts of life!   

 

Facts of life  --  also common, used, and understood in the context of the birds and the bees!

 

Be well.
