In Case You're Curious: Questions about Sex from Young People with Answers from the Experts

by Planned Parenthood

"Everything you wanted to know about sex, 2019 version—easy to absorb, comprehensive, and fully embracing nonbinary language." — Kirkus Reviews

Did you ever walk out of class having even more questions than when you walked in? You may feel that way about History or Math, but what about your Sexual Health class (if you even had one)? If you’re anything like most of the youth in America today, your head is probably spinning with a swirling, high-speed hurricane of questions. It is totally normal to be curious and to have questions about relationships, bodies, consent . . . you name it!

But where can your average teen go to get all the reliable and accurate answers they need? In Case You’re Curious (ICYC), a text-and-answer program conceived by Planned Parenthood, has been providing this educational service for teens for years. And now In Case You’re Curious: Questions about Sex from Young People with Answers from the Experts is a big book of answers with funny and educational illustrations, to the most popular and most interesting questions young people have about birth control, development, sexually transmitted diseases, and so much more.

Within these pages you will find non-judgmental (and fun!) answers meant to educate teens without the uncomfortable silence or weird eye contact often associated with “The Talk.” With questions like “Does masturbating give you a disease?” and “Is the pineapple thing true?” In Case You’re Curious isn’t afraid to tackle the nitty-gritty questions you may think twice about raising your hand to ask in your Sexual Health class or at home.
