S.E.X. (2nd edition)

Sold out

S.E.X. now has a second edition!

Considered by many to be the sex and relationships book for young people, S.E.X. truly leaves no stone unturned. This Lambda Literary Award nominee (2007) covers everything from STIs to sexual orientation, body image to birth control, masturbation to media to misogyny, the anatomy of the clitoris to considering cohabitation. It's written for readers of all gender identities and sexual orientations; for those who aren't sexually active and those who are. It may just be the one everything-you-need, comprehensive, no-judgment sexuality and relationships guide to help you get you through your teens and twenties... maybe even for much of the rest of your whole sexual life.

Complete guides to making sexual choices, consent, figuring out working relationship models, gender and sexual identity, sexual media literacy, birth control methods, reproductive options for unplanned pregnancy, safer sex practice and sexual activities, sexual anatomy that's about pleasure, not just reproduction, sexual response and sexual healthcare are all included, tailored specifically to the expressed wants and needs of teens and emerging adults we hear from every day and have for nearly 20 years now.

S.E.X. doesn't ever presume there is one right set of choices for all young people, nor does it aim to tell you what to do: it aims to give you information, help and support to make YOU the expert, so that you can sort and spell out  the right, informed choices for you, and your life, uniquely.

Staff review

I recently had to read this for my course work in becoming a Certified Sexual Health Educator, and I'm so happy I did! Lot's a great info but even more importantly, Heather doesn't talk down to her readers. The sexual readiness guide alone makes this book a unique sex ed guide that youth can really learn from but is also super handy for adults as well.
