I'm terribly concerned about the kind of information this book is giving to impressionable young minds. In an older copy of the book I found, the section on reproduction implies that sexual intercourse is concluded upon the man achieving orgasm. The woman is completely eliminated from the act apart from being a vaginal receptacle for the penis. I won't even begin to go over the hetero-centric implications this book has. Overall this is not a book I would want my children to read and I'm appalled by it's lack of information with regards to the female orgasm and non-heterosexual sex.
