About the Author

Heather Corinna is a dedicated queer feminist activist, author, educator, artist, teacher, organizer and innovator. They are the founder and direction of Scarleteen (www.scarleteen.com), the first truly comprehensive sex, sexuality and relationships education online resource for young people, since 1998. Heather is also the author of S.E.X: The All-You-Need-To-Know Sexuality Guide to Get You Through Your Teens and Twenties, now in its second edition. Their award-winning work in sex and health education has received acclaim from Roxane Gay, Emily Nagoski, Ms. Magazine, BUST, Bitch, On Our Backs, the New York Times, and the ACLU, and their essays, fiction, poetry and photography have appeared in publications such as Teen Vogue and The Guardian. Heather is navigating middle age with as much grace as they can muster (spoiler: not much), and currently lives and works in their hometown of Chicago.

Reviews

Library Journal
"Corinna has put together a blockbuster of a book for young people dealing with sex and relationships. Much like the authors of Our Bodies, Ourselves and its spinoffs, Corinna answers every possible question teens and young adults could have about virginity, puberty, pregnancy, body image, masturbation, sexual identity, the variety of relationships, and the mechanics of partnered sex. She also addresses topics that are often overlooked, e.g., transgender and intergender identities, realistic teen relationship management skills, and pornography. An excellent resource for preteens, teens, young adults, and people working with these populations; highly recommended for most libraries."

Lisa Jervis, Bitch magazine co-founder
"Not only would my own adolescence have been vastly less painful and confusing if I'd had access to the accurate, comprehensive, and above all nonjudgmental information that Heather Corinna so carefully provides, but S.E.X. is, literally, a lifesaving book: Corinna's vast commonsense wisdom--especially on topics relating to gender roles, queer sexuality, and gender identities--has the potential to improve the physical and emotional health of anyone who reads it, and to help heal our culture's unhealthy, conflicted approaches to sex, sexuality, and gender."



Praise for the first edition of S.E.X.

Library Journal (Booksmack! e-newsletter)
"A great deal about body health and maintenance is included. An outstanding resource section offers both print and online information."

Curve
"The Our Bodies, Ourselves for the MySpace generation, this book by the founder of sex ed website Scarleteen.com is a comprehensive course in sexuality and sexual health for teens of any orientation and their parents, teachers and counselors...In a society that all too often scolds and belittles teenagers often deserving of more credit, S.E.X. is revolutionary."

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"This is another groundbreaking book."
