Young People's Experiences with Sex in an Easy-Access Culture
Edited by Shannon T. Boodram
The Tool Shed offers a variety of books for parents who are looking for quality references and guides to help them talk to their children about sex, sexuality, and gender identity in a positive, age-appropriate, and healthy manner. Feel free to contact us or to stop by the store to see our selection.
Laid offers more than 40 personal narratives-- from young women and men-- about everything involving sex and being sexual. Need-to-know facts and Q&As accompany each chapter, providing food for thought on the many important and often maligned or misunderstood topics this book addresses.
"Young people's voices are rarely heard, particularly on the subject of sex. It is vital that people of all ages hear what young people really have to say, and get a glimpse of their experiences, putting the most stock in what they have to say about their lives and sexualities, not in what adults present or project. Laid offers readers the rare opportunity to do just that. Adults can use this book to become better allies and mentors; teens and young adults can find familiar mirrors they know and an unguarded diversity peer-posturing often obscures."--Heather Corinna, Founder of Scarleteen.com and author of S.E.X.: The All-You-Need-To-Know Progressive Sexuality Guide to Get You Through High School and College
