Written and illustrated by the award-winning team at School of Sexuality Education, who deliver expert workshops for teenagers, here is advice, reliable information and reassurance on sex and relationships... Covering key topics including consent, healthy relationships, sexuality, different kinds of sex, puberty, periods, contraception, porn, sexting – and much more besides! This book is not only full of advice for teenagers but a brilliant tool for their parents, carers and teachers, supporting all of the new RSE curriculum content, as well as answering FAQs and busting some popular myths along the way. Publishing after major updates to the national Relationships and Sex Education curriculum, as well as calls for widespread, high-quality sex education in the wake of the #MeToo movement and Everyone's Invited.

  • This book brings sex education into the 21st century. And it's much-needed: in one recent study, 95% of young people were not taught about LGBTQIA+ sex and relationships, and over half of the young women interviewed had experienced sexual harassment at school or college.
  • School of Sex Ed (formerly known as "Sexplain") featured in Jameela Jamil's take-over of Stylist, as well as the Guardian, Independent, Huffington Post and Boots' Healthy and Beauty magazine. Their partners include Girlguiding, the Sex Education Forum and Mooncup.
  • From the summer of 2021, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education will be made compulsory in all UK secondary schools. In light of this, the teaching guidance will be updated for the first time in 20 years, placing sex in the context of proper consent, relationships and mental health.
