Description

"[The Groundwork Guides] are excellent books, mandatory for school libraries and the increasing body of young people prepared to take ownership of the situations and problems previous generations have left them." -- Globe and Mail

Hundreds of books deal with young women's sexuality. This book is different in that it is an unabashed and forthright guide to the sexual concerns of young men.

Author Manne Forssberg knows what young men want to know. Sex for Guys is a book about love, desire, feelings, and sex that is geared towards young men and other curious people. It deals with all those things that guys think about but may be too embarrassed to ask, such as: Does size matter? How do you actually go about doing it? What do you do when you've been dumped? Lighthearted but sensible and informative, the book takes the position that nothing is abnormal.

Editorial Reviews

...his candid and thorough treatment of not just sex but all that goes with it will prove invaluable to guys bombarded with less sensitive and comprehensive media messages...a must-read for teens with questions, which covers just about the whole demographic.

— Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

[Forssberg's] tone is open, engaging, and funny, and he sounds as if he could be anybody's cool older brother...Frank and uncensored voices of both young men and young women add to the authenticity...[Sex for Guys] is a bargain, and a good thing, too, because teacher-librarians, guidance counselors, and sexuality/family life teachers will need to buy more than one copy of this book, as will guidance. Sooner or later, Sex for Guys will be borrowed, and it will never be returned...Highly Recommended.

— CM Magazine

Imagine having a really cool older brother who spoke your language, took your fears seriously, and could answer all of your questions about sex with the straight facts rather than locker-room hearsay and moralistic dogma. [Sex for Guys] is a witty, sane treatment of the things that drive guys crazy-a must-read for teens with questions, which covers just about the whole demographic. Better buy multiple copies.
