With clarity and understanding, the author discusses the male and female anatomy, human reproduction, love and sex problems, and in a special section, he answers the ten most common questions young people ask about sex. The introduction notes that recent research indicates a rise in the occurrence of sexual activity before marriage. Although Dr. Gordon does not advocate teenage sex, he believes it is necessary to acknowledge the trend and to inform young people of the possible consequences.
One of the more unusual features of the book is its definitions of sex slang, including "gutter language" terms. It is the author's premise that once teenagers know what the words mean, they will not remain anxious about them, nor will they use them as a means of getting parents angry.
Facts About Sex will appeal to all young people who want straightforward information.
