Book Review: The Joy of Sex by Alex Comfort is a great book for older teens who are curious about sexual relationships.
A short overview of this book
The Joy of Sex by Alex Comfort is an informative book that will help older teens to understand how sexual intercourse actually happens i.e. what goes where and the different ways it can happen.
This is a book that many of us grew up with. And yes, the pictures are still a little outdated (yes, 70’s hairstyles 😉 ), but regardless of this, the information is fantastic. What I like is that it shows the different ways that sexual intercourse can happen – lots of different sexual positions and a wide range of sexual behaviours.
So if you have a child who has been looking at porn to learn how sex works, then this book may an appropriate substitute.
You can learn more on this page, about how to talk to kids about sex education.
