More Speaking of Sex: What Your Children Need to Know and When They Need to Know ItMore Speaking of Sex: What Your Children Need to Know and When They Need to Know It by Meg Hickling

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The author is far more condescending that she needs to be about both the reader's attitudes and intelligence (I know what "semantics" means, and if I didn't, I'd look it up. No need to include definitions for your big words, thanks), especially considering her proclamation that by taking the time to read the book, the reader is displaying their sexual maturity.

That said, the information is sound. To me, much of it is somewhat obvious, but the important part was seeing it all spelled out. The suggestions were useful enough.

I mostly appreciated the way she stressed the importance of sexual maturity and the removal of ignorance in order for children (and adults) to be healthy and safe. I also appreciate that the books covered all aspects of sexuality, including touching on the religious aspect and restrictions and ignorance that sometimes comes with.

This is my mindspill. Mostly about comics, books, video games, movies of the science fiction and fantasy leanings. Sometimes recipes and parenting stuff will sneak in, along with a real world rant or two.

I also write about geek culture at Women Write About Comics, and I review genre fiction at The BiblioSanctum.
