Overview

The co-creator of the popular online Midwest Teen Sex Show brings us a hilarious, honest, and in-depth look at every teen's favorite subject: sex. This isn't your mother's sex book: It's punchy and unapologetic. At the same time, it teaches teens the practical ins and outs of being sexually active and, above all, how to stay safe.

With humorous illustrations by San Francisco Chronicle cartoon artist Michael Capozzola, this book features chapters on everything including: foreplay, different forms of sex (all of them!), masturbation, sexual orientation and gender identity, body issues, relationships, virginity, birth control, and protection against diseases. Modern teens are faced daily with making decisions about whether to have sex and how to protect themselves if they do, and they need an engaging and relatable resource for getting the right information. That's what this book is about.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Terri Forehand RN
Thinking about having sex or just thinking about sex? There is so much to think about if you are a teen. Being educated about sex is important to making informed, healthy, and responsible decisions. Hasler tells it all and in the terms that teens understand. The good, the bad, and the facts told like most parents are too embarrassed to say to their teen. Hasler explores everything from the male and female anatomy to how each part works, feels, and works together in the act of intercourse. Hasler explores other aspects of sex such as sexual orientation, masturbation, and foreplay. The more important aspect of sex including the concerns for first-timers, the healthy way to prevent sexually transmitted diseases, and birth control methods are all clearly discussed in the clever and creative text. While parents may feel squeamish when reading this book, teens will read every word. It is a frank and honest if not bold explanation about sex and a good resource for parents and teens. It includes the facts, just the facts and covers every aspect of the teenager coming of age. Reviewer: Terri Forehand, RN
VOYA - Leah Sparks
Nikol Hasler, creator of "The Midwest Teen Sex Show," a series of popular, three-minute online skits about various aspects of sex, has written a no-holds-barred look at sex for teens. Part encyclopedia and part instruction manual, this aptly subtitled "uncensored guide" contains, not just the expected chapters on male and female reproductive organs, forms of birth controls, disease prevention, and virginity/abstinence, but also chapters on foreplay, oral and anal sex, masturbation, and kinks, fantasies, and fetishes. Cartoon-style illustrations and Q&A cartoon bubbles pepper the text, which closes with a list of resources and a detailed index. Librarians and parents may balk at the frank discussion of both heterosexual and homosexual activities, though these are likely the topics in which young adults are interested. The book could supplement high school health classes or be used by parents to start an open discussion with their teens. Reviewer: Leah Sparks
School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up—Hasler, the host and writer of the popular web series "The Midwest Teen Sex Show," offers a book that's funny (a silhouette of two cows engaging in the book's said topic is on the cover and introduces chapters), accurate, and packed with the information readers need to make informed decisions. Her focus is on keeping the mind, body, and spirit safe, and no topic is considered taboo. From explaining the ways people might identify themselves sexually to birth control and good communication to "Kinks, Fetishes, and Fantasies," Hasler offers down-to-earth advice in a nonjudgmental tone. She uses slang teens will most likely be familiar with, as well as technical terminology ("blue balls" and "vasocongestion"). The questions from teens at the end of each chapter will be of particular interest to readers, and the author's answers often serve to dispel commonly held myths. The book contains an extensive chart on sexually transmitted infections, anatomical drawings, and spot-art cartoons that add levity to serious discussions. Hasler is a clear and precise writer, and her book can be referenced either by chapter or read cover to cover. This frank and unflinching book is perfect for older teens.—Traci Glass, Eugene Public Library, OR
Kirkus Reviews
This guide to teen sexuality by the host of the hilarious comedy podcast The Midwest Teen Sex Show is chatty and expansively informative. Maintaining an offhand, non-judgmental tone throughout, it concisely covers topics from sexual identity to STIs and the basics of reproduction (and avoiding it), as well as some less commonly explored territory in books on sex for teens, such as fetishes and kink. Though Hasler's deadpan style plays better on the show than on the page, there are plentiful flashes of humor, and the simple cartoon-style graphics aid in both a comedic and an informational sense. While a lot of the content is not new, the highlight is the Q&A at the end of each chapter, which includes such timely gems as a warning about the possible legal and emotional repercussions of digitally sending or even printing out naked pictures to give to others. Readers will likely giggle over the cover graphic of a bull mounting a cow, but this is a solid, frank resource for teens. (resource list, index) (Nonfiction. 12 & up)
