Fun & Educational (but might require some censorship based on age) 8. Oktober 2012
Von Charger - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
My nephew is only 13 and is already having oral sex (don't ask how we found out). Since he's only being raised by his mom, I got tasked with being the "father figure" and giving him the sex talk. I looked all over Amazon for a book that wouldn't be prudish or judgmental, yet would be entertaining while informative. We also wanted to encourage abstinence if possible, but didn't want all of the "God" or "Jesus" talk that usually comes with it. Nor did we want to put our heads in the sand and think that an abstinence lecture would be enough and assume he wouldn't have sex until he was 18. This book is the answer. It covers everything from mutual masturbation and different sexual activities, all the way to safe-sex, relationships, and communication.

However, there are some sections of this book which I don't think are appropriate for a 13 year-old to know about (BDSM, etc.). Depending on the age of your teen, you may need to do some selective (and temporary) censorship. So, we've decided to photocopy selected parts of the book as his weekly reading assignment, after which we'll have a discussion on that topic. This was the only way we could think of to:
1. give him good information, but age appropriate
2. give him more chapters/sections as he gets older
3. not just hand him a book in the place of good discussion/guidance
4. not bombard him with a bunch of topics all in one discussion

For older teens, the entire book may be totally appropriate. At that age, they are also probably at the reading level where giving them a full book at once would not be overwhelming.

Overall, I recommend this book highly. I wish I had this book while growing up. Just be sure to preview it first before giving it to your teen and realize that you may need to break up the content depending on the age.

On progressive values 3. April 2013
Von Sarah H. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Got this book for my significantly younger 16-year old brother as part of an overall effort after noticing he is absorbing problematic attitudes from teammates and reading about the Steubenville rape case. Everyone says educate the boys, and if a kid with a queer progressive older sister isn't hearing it, nobody is. After skimming through the book, I will list my critical thoughts as the author seems to be reading reviews (awesome). Regardless of these, I think it's good enough to pass on to my little brother, but I will return it in favor of S.E.X by Heather Corinna. The major advantage of this book is its shortness and readability for younger readers.

- I was really hoping that this book would provide more values/attitudes/decision-making of the progressive variety. In particular, I wanted a robust discussion of consent and what is consent, but also: writing about yes means yes type empowerment/feminism, un-learning the silence is sexy script, doing what you want to and not just what you're okay with. This is not really that book and I am not sure that book exists. This book is more what is and how to. The chapter on first time having sex doesn't have a huge giant section on consent - just a general bit on communication, "Always check in with your partner to make sure everything is going ok - that they're enjoying it, etc." It does have a box on consent a page or two into the section on sex (after sections on foreplay, etc.) In general, the order of chapters doesn't make sense to me - I would want communication to come very early on, then protection, then sex - in the book maybe as in life.

- I really found the communication chapter to be so vague as to be almost useless unless someone has never thought they needed to communicate at all. It practically is a long version of saying, "It is good to communicate." Like, one step up from that. Leaves a lot to innovation.

- This is maybe unfair given the book's title, but I felt like almost everything in the book was framed around sex as opposed to sexual activity in general. In fact, many teens are not having sex yet per se, but that doesn't mean they don't need to read the chapter on communication, which is titled, "Communicating about Sex." The book does overall emphasize both people need to be enjoying whatever you're doing, etc., and not every sentence assumes sex, but I didn't love that framing overall.

- This book has enough how to/what goes on information that I kind of wonder if it might be anxiety-producing or overwhelming. It's just a lot of info and some of it feels fairly instructional. Also, wonder if it might be weird coming from an older sibling/parent. I had people from church give me Our Bodes, Our Lives years ago and even though it wasn't a bad book (though out of date) it has always weirded me out that they gave it to me. For more conservative people, if you are not comfortable with a book telling your child about different things people do in bed, this is not the book for you.

- Though the book has a basic, succinct section on gender identity that acknowledges beyond the binary identities, for the rest of the book it continues to connect gender to body parts (as in, "if you are a girl, ..."). Additionally, I felt the book came down kind of hard on definitions of sex. For instance, in the Q & A, a girl is told firmly that anal sex is still sex and not a way to get around virginity pledges. While getting around a promise is probably not a good reason to have sex and in terms of decision-making the advice was sound, I felt the book could have offered a more nuanced view - people can define sex and virginity how they want. Similarly, at one point the book stated that manual sex/fingering was often considered foreplay for straight people but is real sex for lesbians. Ye-es, sort of, but I was kind of offended by that. Why not just problematize/discuss concepts of virginity/sex and honor how people make sense of it (for instance, re-building purity/virginity). Or also a discussion about shame and sexuality. This fits with my wishing there were more discussion of values, like different reasons people choose to have sex and what it means to them.

- I would not give a kid this book alone. I think it could benefit from some more voices of actual teens about their experiences and feelings.

In a nutshell, a good book for liberal parents, as the title says: more focused on sex than relationships, values, emotions, or gender and sexuality studies ideas (although there is some of all of those, that is not where I felt the highest depth or quality was). Pretty scientific. The resources section is excellent for getting Q & A over the internet. Solid but not everything I was looking for.

Totally for the awkward parents. 26. Juni 2011
Von Ema Reviews - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
If you're one of those parents who simply can't bear to have 'that conversation' with your teenager, this is the perfect book. Hell, if you're a teenager and sick of your parents being awkward, give this to them- when I finished reading this, I gave it to my mum. This book explains all of those terms you hear teens these days talking about but you're too embarrassed to ask about and more. I learned more than I'll probably need to know from this, but I also learned a lot of things I've wondered about.
The most amazing thing about Sex is the style it's written in- I'm a 16 year old and I totally feel like one of my best friends could be the author of this book. It gets all the details through, but it isn't told by a 90 year old nun.

Must read for every teen 23. Juni 2010
Von nursejan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As a nurse and a mother of a teenager I was looking for a book that was readable and non judgemental and modern. I like the young author's presentation of material. I liked that the book does not exclude gay and lesbian sex. The only thing that could be improved on would be to have photographs of STD's, but due to obsenity and pornography laws the kids can not see a syphllis cancre on a labia or a penis....this is too bad. I understand why the author could not give more details on STD's. Not every kid has access to computers and knows how to find information on the internet. I thought the education about orgasms was very good and important for teens.
I would recommend this book as a book for sex education in the home and in the classroom.

Good info!! 17. November 2010
Von Schae - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have had the "talk"'several times with my daughter, but sometimes they are more inclined to listen to friends. My 17 year old rolled her eyes at first but after reading it, she told me how much incorrect information is circling the halls at school, and thanks for not lying to her watering down the information and giving her the book!!
