SEXUALITY EDUCATION: READING FOR CHILDREN

This website, from Sex Positive Families in the USA, contains a list of books about sex and sexuality grouped accordingly to children’s age. It is a great resource for anyone working with sexuality education or simply a parent who wishes to teach their children about human body, consent, sexual orientation, gender identity and more.

The featured read for this month is Wait, What?: A Comic Book Guide to Relationships, Bodies, and Growing Up is the latest sex positive book for teens by Heather Corinna, the founder of Scarleteen. The group says this new comic book “has all of the elements we love – inclusivity, medical accuracy, and honesty on an array of sexual health topics relevant to the tween and teen years, including consent, gender, sexual identity, puberty, masturbation, sexual decision making, and more. The illustrations and interactive activities integrated throughout make this a fun and engaging read.”
