Real Talk about Sex and Consent is geared towards teens and written more on “their level” but honestly I think this book should be read by everyone. (Although if it is taught to us all as teens, maybe it would sink in by the time we are adults.) It explains everything you need to know about how to navigate having sex with a partner, what is consent, when to clarify consent and I think just all around covered everything as well as some easy ways to remember things. There’s also stories that you can relate to or to get you to think. Consent is sexy.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
