Lots of guys talk the big talk, but what’s really going on with sex?That’s what a group of young men sat down to figure out for The Little Black Book for Guys. To get behind the hype, they talked to other teens and collected stories, poems, essays, and art about personal experiences. They also interviewed health professionals to get the facts they need to make healthy choices. The result is a revealing collection of personal thoughts and need-to-know information. Topics include: • Puberty • Wet dreams • Masturbation • Penis size • Dating • Safer sex and birth control • Sexually Transmitted Infections / AIDS. Written, illustrated, and designed by youth, and carefully vetted by doctors, The Little Black Book for Guys is more than a book about sex. It’s a snapshot of being a guy at the beginning of the 21st century.
