Bodies, Gender, Puberty, and Other Things

You Know, Sex by Cory Silverberg is the first thoroughly modern sex education book for every body, covering not only the big three of puberty—hormones, reproduction, and development—but also power, pleasure, and how to be a decent human being.

Centring young people’s experiences of pressures and joy, risk and reward, and confusion and discovery, there are chapters on:

  • body autonomy
  • gender
  • consent
  • pornography
  • masturbation
  • stigma
  • boundaries
  • harassment
  • trauma, and a lot more.

The puberty, anatomy, and reproduction chapters include trans, nonbinary, and intersex bodies and experiences, and all of it takes place in our contemporary, media-saturated world (aka, there’s lots of smart phones and social media).

Racially and ethnically diverse, inclusive of cross-disability experience, You Know, Sex is a book for every kind of young person and every kind of family—essential for kids, everyone who knows a kid, and anyone who has ever been a kid.

I loved reading this book with my son (8). He loves it too. The drawings are so lovely; they felt welcoming.
The text is accessible, positive and frank. I wish it had been around when I was young! There's a little author's note at the front that is a bit of guide for readers, but not just in a "how to talk to your kids" way. It's more of a "read this first to know your own trauma so you're not surprised." There is a lot of care/concern taken for the reader as a person. I really recommend this book.
