The Family Guide to Sex and Relationships is a big, glossy book with drawings, photographs, charts, and interesting sidebars, as well as straightforward information, all about sex. This reference guide is for all ages--from kids just learning about the birds and the bees to would-be parents who need a few details on how to track basal body temperature. Richard Walker covers the gamut of human sexuality. In addition to discussing birth, puberty, menopause, and old age, he addresses specific issues such as alternative family structures and sex as an older person.From Library Journal:
Although most people would agree that discussing sexual issues with family members or partners is very important, doing so may be awkward or embarrassing. This work is designed to open the lines of communication and provide current, nonjudgmental information about sexual topics. Written in lay language and well illustrated by sex educator Walker, coauthor of How Sex Works (DK Pub., 1994), the book covers growth and development, puberty, sexuality, contraception, pregnancy and birth, menopause, sexually transmitted diseases, and family dynamics. Males and females receive equal treatment, and important subjects such as illness and sex, single parenting, gay and lesbian families, and sexual offenses are also considered. A glossary and referral list supplement the text. This excellent source will answer most questions for adolescents, parents, and teachers seeking accessible information about human sexuality. Highly recommended for all collections.?Barbara M. Bibel, Oakland P.L., Cal.
