Before the age of 20, more than half of teenagers have sex, and one out of four contracts a sexually transmitted disease. One million adolescent women become pregnant each year, and 80 percent of these pregnancies are unintended. This book provides comprehensive, straightforward information about sex, relationships, and birth control in reader-friendly terms, emphasizing informed consent and mutual respect. A tool for young adults coming to terms with their sexuality, this book is appropriate for teens to read on their own and will serve teachers, parents and health educators who work with young adults. It includes a curriculum guide that provides questions for discussion and background history on various topics, plus an appendix of resources for additional information on sexuality, birth control, teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases and related topics—with addresses and Internet sites (when available).

E. James Lieberman is a psychiatrist in private practice and clinical professor at the George Washington University School of Medicine. Karen Lieberman Troccoli has worked in public health policy for a decade.From Library Journal:
Psychiatrist Lieberman and his daughter Karen, both with backgrounds in public health, attempt to tackle the age-old issue of teenage sex. Written with high school students as the intended audience, the book discusses issues from STDs to the use of various contraceptives. The coverage of contraceptives is extensive (although there is no new information here) and includes history, failure rates, and the advantages and disadvantages of each technique. Throughout, true stories of teenagers and contraceptive use are given as examples. Everything is handled tastefully, but given the subject matter of this book, it could be a controversial addition to some collections. In its favor, the book dedicates a chapter to a discussion and curriculum guide for educators and parents and includes an appendix for those seeking additional information on birth control, with useful addresses of organizations, including E-mail addresses. Recommended for large public libraries. [E. James Lieberman is a long-time LJ reviewerAEd.]AMee-Len Hom, Hunter Coll. Lib., New Yor.
