Summary All About Sex is organized in thematic sections; each chapter deals in a user-friendly way with everything from sexual orientation to sexual science, from the psychology of sex to laws affecting our sexuality, and from orgasm to family planning. Very simple and concrete language is used to explain the complexities of human sexuality; All About Sex is meant to be understandable to younger members of the family and to facilitate family communication and education. The overall purpose of the book is to normalize sex and help families establish sexual values and encourage responsible sexual behaviors. Charts, illustrations, and resources annotate the text and are presented in a reassuring way that will make it acceptable to place All About Sex openly on the family bookshelf. Comprehensive, accurate, straightforward, and sensitive, All About Sex will be an important and valued resource to educators as well as families
