Books About Sex for Teens

The thought of discussing sex with your teen is enough to drain the life out of any parent.

Yes, it's a natural part of life, but that doesn't make it any less embarrassing or uncomfortable to talk about. That's when the power of media can come into play.

To aid you in your chat about the birds and the bees with your teen, we've rounded up a list of seven sex ed books that do all the talking for you.

You'll still have to answer all their questions (which they'll have plenty of), but these books are the perfect jumping-off point into the topic of sex.

Disclaimer: Be sure to peruse through these first before passing them along to your teen, just in case they discuss things in a manner you don't agree with.
