Sex Education Books for 13 year olds

There are some fantastic sex education books for 13 year olds  that will provide your teen with accurate and reliable information about love, sex, relationships and growing up.  

Books that will provide your teen with positive and accurate information about the birds and bees and the facts of life.  Books that will also provide you with an opportunity to talk with your child about what sexual behaviour and attitudes are okay (and not okay) in your family. 

There is a mix of books in this list of sex education books for 13 year olds. You'll find books that talk about puberty and sex, as well as pornography, friendships, consent, gender and more. You won't find any puberty books in this list, you can find the best puberty books for 13 year olds here. 

Books that will help to guide your 13 year old as they grow up. 

If it is a particular topic that you're interested in, then you'll find books by the topic in the main list of Sex Education Books for Children.

And if you're looking for book for a different aged child, then you'll want to look at the age-appropriate list of sex education books

NOTE: Before passing any book to your child or reading the book with your child, you should read it yourself first. I might think it is a great book for a certain age child or that the information is valuable, but you may disagree. You need to choose books that reflect your values and the messages you want your child to receive.

Sex Educator Recommendations

A warning!

There are a lot of books in this list on a wide range of topics that are relevant to sex education. Which means you'll find books on a lot of different topics, like consent, body safety, diversity families and more. 

So you might feel overwhelmed and not quite sure where to start!


So if you can only buy 1 -5 books, what should you buy for a 13 year old?


You can find my thoughts about the best puberty books for 13 year olds here. A lot of the puberty books also talk about sex.


If you want a book that covers everything in the one book, then  It's perfectly normal by Robie H. Harris is good or Help your kids with growing up or Secret business of relationships, sex and love.


The Nonnie books are also really good as well, as they are interactive ie you can sit down and read it together with your child, and answer questions and talk about what you have just read.


These are some of the many sex education books for 13 year olds that have been written. As I find more, I will add them to this list. They are all really good books that kids can read to find reliable and accurate information about love, sex and relationships. Plus they will help prepare you too!

If you have looked at these sex education books for 13 year olds, you may also be interested in books on other topics too. You can find many of them listed in my sex education book review site.
