I can’t even being to tell you how excited I am to see Nikol Hasler‘s new book — and now Sex: A Book for Teens: An Uncensored Guide to Your Body, Sex, and Safety is here! Nikol is the brainy beauty from The Midwest Teen Sex Show — oh yes. Cult heroine, she of the controversial and much-loved sex advice show for parents and their teens.
This book is all that and a bag of healthy snack items. Required for all parents who read this blog, and especially those who don’t. Nikol emailed me tonight and I pestered her for the above photo, plus she told me these things:
“If the title didn’t give it away, it’s a book about sex and it’s for teens. I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “I wonder why every painting of Thomas Aquinas makes him look like a grump.” Me, too. I’d think the father of natural law would be more chill about things. If you are also thinking, “If this is a book for teens, why should I buy it?”, the answer is that it’s got cows on the cover. Plus, when I go on some hoity toity national show to chitchat about the book, you can impress the people in your living room by pulling out your copy.
I think this is a great starter book for teens. I’m most excited about the sexual identification chapter, because I got to really delve into trans issues as well. The kinks chapter is my second favorite.
The book features an overview of all things related to sex with Q&As from teens in the back of each chapter.”
Finally a hip, smart, edgy and wise book about sex for teens. It’s about time. With that, here’s one of my all-time favorite Midwest Teen Sex Show episodes “Vaginas” (ad at the end is nonsensical, but whatevs):
