An upfront, matter-of-fact, and teenage-friendly sex education and sexual health guide book, for both boys and girls, in one easy-to-use flip volume Designed to help teens make healthy, positive choices based on the right information, this guide explores the complex issues teenagers face around sexual exploration, sexual desire, and making the right decisions about sex. Always providing honest and straightforward information, it talks about when to have sex, how sex happens, why you might or might not have sex, what sex feels like, and other important things to know if and when a girl or guy has, or is about to have, sex. But sex isn't just about one person, and the material here goes way past how to put on a condom to explore the tricky areas of pleasure and desire and discuss what's happening with relationships and friends, family, sexual identity, and cultural influences. It takes teens through knowing themselves and their bodies, keeping safe, protecting themselves, thinking through pregnancy, knowing about relationships, and tapping into their personal power to make positive choices. With comments from other guys and girls facing the same experiences, this book talks honestly and respectfully about the hard questions and gives teens some answers they might need.

About the Author:

Craig Murray has been delivering sexual health information for the last 10 years via health promotion and community and professional education. He has also worked as a peer educator and a youth consultant with a family planning organization. Leissa Pitts has conducted sexual and reproductive health training and education for nearly 10 years and currently manages services in the multicultural health sector.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up-This stellar Aussie import exceeds all expectations. Teens can indeed find straight-up sex information with discussions of self-esteem, health, and societal norms neatly woven in among the facts. The book is written in flip-book format, divided by gender. Its positive, nonjudgmental outlook quickly puts readers at ease. Both authors are experienced, qualified professionals who clearly work with and relate to teens. Setting aside a little Aussie slang and measurements in centimeters, the writing is clear and accessible. Topics covered are standard fare, such as anatomy and safe sex, and a discussion of the emotions that surround sex is thoughtfully presented. Readers are also given information on body image, abusive relationships and termination, and pornography, and are encouraged to discover how they, not their peers, feel about these issues. Superb graphics, photos, and design elements are well suited to the target audience. Concise checklists, quizzes, and "Did You Know" boxes are scattered throughout, and a listing of books and websites for each gender is included. The recommended further reading is the only disappointment, featuring mostly older titles with boys likely to find only 3 of 11 titles readily available. The Australian websites are current and appealing. This outstanding, thoughtful title belongs in every YA collection.-Cindy Wall, Southington Library & Museum, CTα(c) Copyright 2011.
