Description


The go-to sex ed guide for teens and young adults, tackling everything you want to know about sex, from consent, safe sex, emotional health and more, from the founder of scarleteen.com.

As a teen or emerging adult, dealing with all the changes going on in your life, body, and mind can be mighty overwhelming. When it comes to sex, everyone seems to have strong feelings and opinions about who you should be and what you should (shouldn't) do. How do you decide who to listen to? Heather Corinna and Scarleteen have provided sex education and information to millions of young people, parents, and mentors since 1998; S.E.X. tackles all the big topics:

  • Self-image and how to find and claim your own sexual self
  • How to best protect and support your sexual and emotional health
  • Sorting out gender and sexual identities, even when they're complicated and confusing
  • The latest on contraceptive methods and other reproductive choices, sexually transmitted infections, and safer sex
  • Finding, creating, and managing healthy and happy relationships
  • How to set and respect limits and boundaries, and rock consent
  • Identifying, preventing, or healing from abuse or assault
  • ...and much more.

Whatever your gender or sexual identity, whether you've already been actively exploring your sexuality or are only just getting curious, S.E.X clearly spells out what you need and want to know--no shame, no judgement, just comprehensive and accurate info in a clear, straightforward language.

Praise For…



Praise for the first edition of S.E.X.:

Library Journal (Booksmack! e-newsletter)
“A great deal about body health and maintenance is included. An outstanding resource section offers both print and online information.”

Curve
“The Our Bodies, Ourselves for the MySpace generation, this book by the founder of sex ed website Scarleteen.com is a comprehensive course in sexuality and sexual health for teens of any orientation and their parents, teachers and counselors…In a society that all too often scolds and belittles teenagers often deserving of more credit, S.E.X. is revolutionary.”

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
“This is another groundbreaking book.”



Library Journal
“Corinna has put together a blockbuster of a book for young people dealing with sex and relationships. Much like the authors of Our Bodies, Ourselves and its spinoffs, Corinna answers every possible question teens and young adults could have about virginity, puberty, pregnancy, body image, masturbation, sexual identity, the variety of relationships, and the mechanics of partnered sex. She also addresses topics that are often overlooked, e.g., transgender and intergender identities, realistic teen relationship management skills, and pornography. An excellent resource for preteens, teens, young adults, and people working with these populations; highly recommended for most libraries.”

Lisa Jervis, Bitch magazine co-founder
“Not only would my own adolescence have been vastly less painful and confusing if I'd had access to the accurate, comprehensive, and above all nonjudgmental information that Heather Corinna so carefully provides, but S.E.X. is, literally, a lifesaving book: Corinna's vast commonsense wisdom--especially on topics relating to gender roles, queer sexuality, and gender identities--has the potential to improve the physical and emotional health of anyone who reads it, and to help heal our culture's unhealthy, conflicted approaches to sex, sexuality, and gender.”
