An Uncensored Introduction
Before you get busy, you need to get educated.
Thinking about having sex? Or just thinking about sex, period? Well, that’s certainly a good place to start — because there’s a lot to think about, and a lot to learn. And Nikol Hasler is here to help. This honest, funny, and uncensored guide covers everything from sexual orientation and masturbation to foreplay, first-time concerns, birth control, and protection against diseases. New sections in this revised edition also address online dating, sex-related bullying, important new sex-related legislation, and sexting — a topic of particular interest and concern today. No subject is off-limits and no question is taboo in this hilarious, in-depth, all-in-one guide.
“What a clever, well-written, and creatively illustrated book that speaks to teens and their parents about teenage sexuality! Both the content and form are superb.”—M. Joycelyn Elders, MD, former Surgeon General of the United States
