"Curve ""The "Our Bodies, Ourselves" for the MySpace generation, this book by the founder of sex ed website 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, "05/13/07"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."
