The only book you need to start a conversation with your kids about sexual harassment, consent, #metoo, and more

Many American teens are steeped in a culture that sends unsettling messages about sex, through everything from politics to music to the normalization of porn. In today's environment, it's crucial that teens be able to ask hard questions about how to take care of themselves, make decisions that reflect their values, and stay safe. In Sex, Teens, and Everything in Between, veteran teen sex educator and mother of three Shafia Zaloom helps you discuss a wide variety of sex-related topics with your teens, including:

• How to get and give consent
• vWhat it means to have "good" sex
• How to help prevent sexual harassment and assault
• How to stay safe in difficult situations
• The legal consequences of sexual harassment and assault, and what to do if a teen experiences assault or is accused of it
• Stories from survivors of sexual assault

Approachable, engaging, and with real-life scenarios and discussion questions in every chapter, Sex, Teens, and Everything in Between is a must-have resource that gives parents and educators the tools they need to have meaningful conversations with teens about what sex can and should be.


"Finally! A book on adolescent sexuality by an expert who talks to teens about sex and relationships every day! Sex, Teens, & Everything in Between provides a window into the real issues that today's adolescents face and an essential road map to help parents and youth navigate this thorny new world." - Julianna Deardorff, co-author of The New Puberty: How to Navigate Early

"Sex, Teens, & Everything in Between is the ultimate relationship guide for teens of all orientations and identities. Teens will find the information, tools and wisdom to support their development of personal and sexual agency. These pages are loaded with familiar scenarios, each followed by helpful perspective and a breakdown of potential choices and outcomes relating to each situation. Shafia provides readers the fuel to make the consent conversation clear, relevant and applicable for everyone, acknowledging the interconnected factors of social media, normalized hookup culture, Internet porn and gender norms." - author of Sexploitation: Helping Kids Develop Healthy Sexuality in a Porn-Driven World

"Adolescent sexuality has become more complex and the issues surrounding it more difficult than ever before. Shafia is a rational voice for parents, caregivers, and kids on this difficult and sometimes awkward topic. Sex, Teens, & Everything in Between is a must read for the parent, caregiver, and educator who would like to understand the teen universe of all things sex, and pro-actively and thoughtfully engage with their teens around these challenging topics." - Debra Wilson, President of the Southern Association of Independent Schools

"As a sex educator, I know that these are the real issues that teens have questions and concerns about. I really appreciate Shafia's candid discussion about teen sexuality, including many topics that they would likely be afraid to bring up with their own parents. Her book is very inclusive, and discusses perspectives and motivations that would be eye opening to parents. What a great resource to help teens navigate the sexual decisions of our modern culture and make smart choices. I wish everyone could have a Shafia as their personal counselor!" - Ivy Chen, Professor at San Francisco State, Department of Sociology and Sexuality Studies

"Shafia Zaloom has created a roadmap for every teen, every parent, and every family navigating the sometimes frightening intersection of loving, healthy relationships, sex, and digital technology. Zaloom is a gifted educator who approaches her work with compassion, a deep knowledge of the lives of today's teens, as well as candor-and well-placed humor. She shows us that underlying teens' complex relationships with technology and sex are the age-old human needs for caring, connection and respect." - Esta Soler, President, Futures Without Violence

"These are the conversations every parent wants to be having with their teenagers. The pages are filled with sensitive, honest and utterly urgent case studies that give us insight into the importance and delicacy of sexual consent. Shafia provides an unflinching examination of consent education - we can't afford to look away." - Bonni Cohen, documentary film director of Audrie & Daisy (as seen on Netflix)
