The Talk: Helping Your Kids Navigate Sex in the Real World

After my live-tweeting of my son’s abstinence sex ed class in high school went viral, I was asked by many parents how we had managed to raise a fourteen-year-old so comfortable talking about sex— comfortable enough even to challenge sex ed teachers when they presented misinformation. My book, The Talk: Helping Your Kids Navigate Sex in the Real World, is a response to those questions. Commissioned by Amazon Kindle Singles, The Talk is available in print, as an e-book, and as an audio-book. It’s purposely low-cost because I want to get it into the hands of parents who need it.

In The Talk, I explain how you can engage your children in productive conversations about sexual anatomy, sexual behaviors, sexual responsibility, and sexual pleasure, and how you can do it in a non-shaming fashion that will support not only your child’s well-being, but also your long-term relationship with your child.

Here’s what the publisher’s blurb has to say about the book:

Using the humor and clarity for which she is known, Dreger provides the basic information you need to understand sex development, gender identity, and erotic feelings and behaviors, while also giving you a clear method for talking with children about difficult subjects like sex. The Talk gives you examples of how to answer children’s questions, and even explains how to recover if you screw up a conversation about sex. Whether your child is a preschooler or a teenager, The Talk will help you go forward with more information and less fear.”
