Where does a young woman find straight talk about sex? And how can she tell whether the information from those sources is accessible, accurate and complete? Books will give facts, but the clinical approach of most books on sex makes the subject as approachable as a cold instrument in the gynaecologist's office, and certainly offers little insight into the emotional issues and real-life dilemmas that surround sexuality. This book gives you comprehensive and accurate information delivered in a style so down-to-earth that its just like talking to your older sister or best friend. Now there is an educational book about sex that is as captivating as a novel, and as fun as a slumber party. In a voice that is both informative and engaging, the author will educate, entertain, and empower you to deal wisely with the questions, decisions and consequences that surround sex and intimate relations.
