Heather Corinna and Scarleteen have been providing sex education and information for young adults, parents, and mentors for nearly twenty years. Queer, straight, sexually active, or just plain curious, everything you need to know about sex, health, and relationships is available in this extensive guide--written in an open, nonjudgmental tone.
Along with the hallmarks of the first edition--a sexual readiness checklist; details on the male and female reproductive anatomy; and tips on safer sex for body, mind, and heart--this new edition reflects the latest research and trends on sexual and reproductive health. It includes updated information on: gender and sexual orientation; explicit consent; contraceptive methods and effectiveness; and sexually transmitted infection statistics, tests, and treatments. It also provides more extensive information on the use and prevalence of technology in relationships and sex.
