There are some fantastic sex talk books that cover absolutely everything your child or teen could possibly want to know about love, sex and relationships.
These sex talk books are what I call handbooks or textbooks. Which means that they are extremely comprehensive and cover nearly everything. Some books are very simple and just talk about the basics. Whereas other books are very detailed and are perfect for kids who have many questions. Some of these books are for younger children, whereas other books are for tweens and teens.
So the books in this list talk about more than just sexual intercourse. They talk about the names of the private body parts, body safety, how babies are made, diversity, families, relationships, pregnancy, consent, puberty, masturbation and much more.
A lot of the puberty books (they aren't in this list) are also very comprehensive and talk about love, sex and realtionships as well.
You will only find books in this list that are readily available at bookshops today.
You can find more books about different topics in the main list of Sex Education Books for Children.
And if you find this list a little overwhelming, you might want to look at the age-appropriate list of sex education books.
You’ll find more information about sex education in my Sex Education 101 page.
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.
These are some of the many sex talk books 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 talk books, 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.
