Most books about sex are full of answers. Answers can be helpful and even reassuring, but they also tell us what to think and even how to think instead of encouraging us to think for ourselves and to honor our own knowledge and experience. Most books about sex focus only on reproduction and intercourse. You’ll find neither of this topics in our books. Sex education is about more than science and the so-called fact of life. I believe the most important part of sex education is exploring and sharing our feelings, values, and beliefs, and helping kids connect what they learn to their communities, histories, families, and cultures.
