This groundbreaking book from sex educator and YouTube phenomenon Laci Green has everything you’ve ever wanted to know about sex, sexuality, pleasure, and your body.
Let’s be honest: most of us think about sex A LOT, and we have plenty of unanswered questions: What’s the best way to talk to my partner about what I want? How do I figure out my sexuality? How do I have sex safely? What does an orgasm actually feel like?
Laci Green—a sex educator and YouTuber who’s been hailed by Time magazine as the millennial Dr. Ruth—has built a platform of millions of followers by answering sex-related questions frankly, nonjudgmentally, and hilariously.
Now Laci brings her signature style and voice to a comprehensive book about the multitude of issues and concerns that go along with sexuality: anatomy, consent, LGBTQ issues, STI and pregnancy prevention, sexual empowerment, healthy relationships, myth-busting, and more.
Sex Plus is the first book of its kind: empowering, sex-positive, and cool. Comprehensive, honest, and vetted by a range of medical experts, this book will help you take control of your sex life.
After all, knowledge is pleasure.
Sex is a constellation of thoughts and emotions, suggests Green (host of the YouTube series Sex Plus) in this affirming guide for teens. Green opens with a recollection of her own adolescence and insufficient sex education: "It was difficult to make sense of this world I found myself in as a teenager. It felt like I was being crushed by the weight of my own sexuality." She goes on to share her views on the meaning behind sex positivity, next candidly discussing menstruation, masturbation, gender identity, and safer sex, as well as issues of sexual exploration, kink, and forming relationships. Throughout, she shares and corrects common misconceptions about sex (the hymen "cannot reliably indicate whether someone has had sex or not" and "there is a slightly-too-popular belief that foreskin is dirty' and should thus be removed with circumcision. This is simply not true."). Diagrams, charts, and infographics vary the presentation style. Green tackles serious issues of sexual violence, consent, and stigma with clarity and integrity while bringing humor and camaraderie to a strikingly broad discussion of sexuality. Ages 16 up.
