Reviews

"Al Vernacchio has written a wonderful book that includes numerous model answers and a new way to think about adolescent sexuality -- as a force for good in life rather than simply a problem to be dealt with."--Leslie M. Kantor, MPH, Vice President of Education, Planned Parenthood Federation of America
"An engaging, much-needed new approach to teaching children about the human sexual experience."--Kirkus Reviews
"Al Vernacchio has masterfully accomplished what good sexuality educators have attempted for so many years: he has created a work that is both a fun, easy read as well as a thorough and thoughtful guide."--Don Dyson, PhD, Associate Dean, School of Human Service Professions and Director, Center for Human Sexuality Studies, Widener University
"Vernacchio's no-blame, no-shame approach will inspire parents to drop their fears, judgments, and inhibitions in order to help their kids navigate the teen years."--Publishers Weekly
"For Goodness Sex is a breath of much-needed fresh air around a very charged subject. Bravo, Al Vernacchio!"--Christiane Northrup, M.D., ob/gyn physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers: Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom, and The Wisdom of Menopause
"At last a book that teaches parents how to talk to kids about sex in a way that is based healthily in reality and not fearfully in doom and gloom. I wish my parents had read this book!"--Lori Duron, author of Raising My Rainbow
