Bronwen Pardes, a sexual-health educator, has put together a truly informative book for teens--both male and female--on sex and sexuality. Using her years of teaching as a background, Ms. Pardes provides information that many teens want to know, but are too embarrassed to ask about.

Subjects include:
What is Sex?
The Lowdown on Down Below: Reproductive Anatomy
Puberty
Am I Ready?
No Glove, No Love: Protecting Against STDs
Planning, Not Parenthood: Birth Control
Doing It Right
Adam and Eve, or Adam and Steve?: Sexual Orientation
Boys Will Be Boys...or Will They?: Transgender and Intersex
DIY: Masturbation
Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite: Sexually Transmitted Diseases
What the Heck Does That Mean?: Some Definitions
Oh is for Orgasm
Rape and Sexual Abuse
Where Can I Go for More Information?: A Resource Guide

This is an informative, highly intelligent look at a teen's changing body, sexuality, and actual physical intimacy. However, it's very frank in language and the information it gives, so parents may want to read DOING IT RIGHT themselves before discussing it with their teens. For fact-based information, though, this is a wonderful guide for those going through adolescence and wondering about what all the changes in their bodies means, and especially for those contemplating having sex for the first time.
