Sex education that's upfront, matter-of-fact, teenage-friendly - for boys and girls in one easy to use volume - a guide through the complex issues of teenagers and sexual exploration, sexual desire and making the right decisions about sex.
Sexpectations Boy will help you make healthy, positive choices based on the right information.
Sexpectations Girl provides honest and straightforward information that will help you make your own healthy choices.
Sexpectations talks to girls and guys about when to have sex, how sex happens, why you might (or might not) have sex, what does sex feel like and other important things to know if and when a girl or guy has, or is about to have, sex.
But sex isn't just about one person. Sexpectations goes way past how to put on a condom -- it explores the tricky areas of pleasure and desire with real life information shared in a straightforward way. It discusses what's happening with relationships and friends, family, sexual identity and cultural influences. Knowing about and making decisions about sex can be confusing at the best of times. This book will take you through knowing yourself and your body, keeping safe, protecting yourself, thinking through pregnancy, knowing about relationships and tapping into your personal power to make positive choices.
With comments from other guys and girls facing the same experiences, Sexpectations talks honestly and respectfully about the hard questions and gives you some answers you might need.

If you have teenagers, you want this book. The layout is fantastic, it has heaps of cred and it covers all the information that they want to know but they don't want to know from their parents. How can I tell? My sample copy has disappeared into the wilds of my kids' bedrooms.
"A novel format...Making the entirety of the advice accessible to both boys and girls in one book underscores Pitts's and Murray's message about open communication." --Publishers Weekly.com
