Publishers Description
Have you ever wondered… Am I normal? (and what is “normal,” anyway?) What's up down there? I really like girls, but I like boys sometimes, too. Am I gay, bisexual, or just messed up? Are we both really ready to have sex? Is it ok if I masturbate? I feel like I can't ever say no to my partner. What's the problem?
Heather Corinna and have been providing sex education and information for young adults, parents, and mentors for nearly ten years. Whether you're straight, gay, sexually active, or just plain curious, S.E.X. spells out everything you need to know, including:
A sexual readiness checklist
Illustrations of female and male reproductive anatomy
How to love your body, even when it's changing every day
Tips on safer sex for body, heart, and mind
An in-depth birth control breakdown
How to create and enjoy the relationships that are right for you
Popular mechanics of partnered sex: sexual activities explained, including pregnancy and STI risks
STIs 101: what they are and how to keep yourself from getting them

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Sex education at its best  Aug 19, 2008
This book may be the best of its kind in English. At last we have something primarily for teens and young adults which is knowledgeable, helpful, positive where possible, free of bad biases, and beautifully written.

Even if I don't agree with everything said in the book, I recognize its extraordinary qualities. On every page I am pleased to see how Heather Corinna makes luminous sense out of complex issues without oversimplifying. She guides the reader to think, possibly to do more reading or other research, definitely to make her or his own choices. Advice is there aplenty but it's backed up by thought and no little wisdom --- and reasons for everything.

That is how education should work. This book is in complete contrast to the sex-negative, unscientific, ideologically biased sex miseducation foisted on most of America for a long time.

Even if the book's style doesn't captivate every young reader, it refuses to talk down to people. Its approach is very similar to that of the author's Scarleteen website, which has a massive and successful following.

The section on relationships (Chapter 6), not primarily about sex at all, is worth the price of the whole book and then some. Ditto the next chapter's "sexual readiness checklist" and the equally splendid "top ten really crappy reasons to have sex with someone."

I bought two copies of this book. One I gave immediately to a 16-year-old friend who knows more about bodies and sex and has a better attitude towards both than most people of any age. She couldn't put it down.

From the author's foreword: "So, who's this book for? Everyone."

Yes indeed. How rare it is to find a book about sex written so well with such understanding, insight, and love.
To Heather, but for everyone else to read! I Mean it!  Aug 14, 2008
Oh yeah, so I have read your new book, and it is SO useful in so many ways. First of all, I was very impressed by the way you discussed controversial points in issues like masturbation and sexuality-you kept things light, conversational, and informative, but made a conscious effort throughout to be all-inclusive of everyone. You were sensitive to the beliefs of ALL your readers, not a small feat! I think that just discussing the way you talk about a certain subject would be a great way for everyone to become more conscious of how they use their own words. Also, I think reading the book is also a great conversation starter between adults and children because your writing style suits all ages. At certain points I would call the book a self-help book because you convey that exploring sexuality, and knowing about sex, is empowerment. Many of your passages are almost like inspirational talks to be more open, and observant, and tolerant of others...I must say that some of it was quite moving (I can get very emotional right before my period...last month I cried at an Matisse exhibit because it was so beautiful). It sounded like you were right next to me, encouraging me in a bright, positive, go-gettem' voice. Bottom line: you're great at teaching about sex! why? because you don't tell us what's right, but show us how to find it (sexuality, gender, identity, tolerance, the right partner, an alternative to tampons...all of it!) on our own.

Didn't mean to write all that, it just came out. I just wanted to say thank you for writing such a great sex book. Although I learned a few new things, I wish I had this book a few years ago. I will make sure to pass it on to my sister!
Its good but...  Jul 31, 2008
I'm going to admit that I didnt actually read the book cover to cover. However, I was skimming the book today at the library, I had been wanting to see it for quite some time now. While I 100 percent agree it is something teens should have access to and read, I do not feel like it was the right approach. Just by looking at the words in the book I felt like it was way too dense (wordy). The book was just entirely too compacted, I understand the need to include everything, but having so many words on a page is surely going to distract any teen. I'm in college and I typically have a long attention span for reading but I quickly grew impatient whilst reading this book. It would have been nice if it would have been more pages with less words and clearer headings.

If you're looking for the definitive guide to sex and sexuality, and everything that it entails, then look no further than Heather Corinna's fact-filled book. With straightforwardness, humor, insight, and directness, the founder and editor of Scarleen delves into every aspect of sexuality, and presents it in a way that teens and young adults (and us old adults, too!) can truly understand.

Everything -- and I mean everything! -- is covered within the pages of S.E.X. From Your Body: An Owner's Manual to To Be, Or Not To Be...Sexually Active, Ms. Corinna puts everything into perspective, for both girls and guys. There are thirteen main chapters included, along with appendixes that cover sexually transmitted diseases and infections and a bibliography and list of recommended sources (which include phone numbers and websites, as well as books).

If you've ever had questions of any type about sex, or about your sexuality, then this is the book to use as a reference. There's nothing silly or embarrassing in this book -- just straight questions and straight answers. There are parts that are humorous, but underneath it all is just frankness for the seriousness of the subject matter. Heather Corinna knows that sex is serious business, and that staying both healthy and happy is, too.

This is a great book! Give it to your sons and daughters, your nieces and nephews, your friends. Read it with them, and don't be afraid to discuss what you've read. If everyone -- regardless of age -- is informed, then sex and sexuality will never have to be a taboo subject.

AWESOME  Dec 14, 2007
I need several hundred copies of this book to give out to everyone I know! My mom and I read it together, my sister and I read it together, then I gave it to a friend and her mom, and never got it back! Now I have to buy another copy!!! It's amazing, as expected, with SO much information!!!! A must read for anyone over 12.

Note: I'm 19, sister is 16, friend is 16... associated parents are in their 40s. Just so you don't think I'm not in the target age group :)
