From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up Rodgers discusses the effect of drugs on sexual behavior. She first describes sexual arousal, based on the findings of Masters and Johnson, then discusses hormones, aphrodisiacs, psychoactive drugs, sexual problems, and legitimate drug treatment and sexual therapy. Information about birth control is included, as is a discussion of AIDS. This straightforward presentation occasionally slips into generalization, such as a statement that equates sex and drug experimentation as accompanying each other. Other books about drug or alcohol abuse, i.e., What You Should Know About Drugs and Drug Abuse (Four Winds, 1970; o.p.) by Harvey Greenberg or health books like Don't Worry, You're Normal (Crowell, 1982) by Nissa Simon may devote a sentence or paragraph to this subject, but this is the first extensive treatment of the relationship between drugs and sex for a teen audience. Black-and-white photographs break up the text but don't provide new information. There is an extensive list of state agencies and a lengthy glossary. Martha Gordon, South Salem Lib . , N.Y.
