The Condoms Are Next to the Toothpaste: Sex Talk at the Kitchen Table
Everyone knows what condoms are, but few families actually discuss them. As a society, we are notorious for avoiding sexual conversations. But isn't sexual health as important as oral health? This book offers discussion on the conflicts between traditional teachings and sexual health, as well as reassurance with sexual topics and values both of which are critical for easy sex talks. Discomforts with sex in our culture are faced head-on, providing ample opportunities to gain knowledge and teach our families in an open, healthy manner.
Throughout this book, Dr. Young shares her thirty-years of teaching sex to physicians, nurses, teachers, parents, college students, the elderly, and children. She is the widowed mother of four adult children and four young grandchildren and keeps her condoms next to the toothpaste.
